Early beauty trends still dominate our social networks, but let’s be honest: some styles seem a little too young to be applied in the real world. Elaborate hairstyles with lots of ribbons and clips and make-up in matte pastel tones can look very school-like. That’s why we turned to makeup artist and influencer Britney Delgado of @glamxbrit to create a modern 2000s hair and makeup look. Read on to find out how to replicate it.


STEP 1:

Apply foundation

Your foundation should be super natural and luminous. Use a light foundation like YSL Beauty Bare Look Tint. Highlight your cheeks with a pink cream blush like Maybelline New York Cheek Heat in Coral Ember (30). If your skin tends to be oily, fix it in a targeted way with NYX Professional Makeup’s Can’T Stop Won’T Stop Mattifying Powder.

STEP 2:

Layer your eyeshadows

Apply the peach-colored eyeshadow from Urban Decay’s Cyber Eyeshadow Palette all over your eyelids. Next, apply the brick-red shade Bite to the outer corners of your eye, stretching it out like eyeliner. Use the gadget to blend along the lower lash line.

STEP 3:

Add a touch of shimmer

Apply a shimmery pink shade like Jumbo NYX Professional Makeup Eye pencil in Strawberry Milk (605) to your eyelids. Then finger-apply a pale pink shade like Call It from the Cyber palette for a lighter metallic look. Stretch it up to the lower lash line to highlight the sparkling eye.


STEP 4:

Define the lashes and (optional!) embellish the eyes.

Close the eyes with mascara. Delgado also added gorgeous heart-shaped glitter to the inner half of her eyelids.

STEP 5:

Apply gloss

STEP 6:

Start cutting hair

For your hair, separate two one-centimeter sections at the front of your hair and secure them on either side of your head. You can tie the rest of your hair in a ponytail so that it doesn’t get in the way.


STEP 7:

Finish the half-tied look.

Evenly separate the front sections into four smaller sections. You can use the pointed end of a comb or even a pencil to draw clean, precise lines. Then pull each of these sections over the head and secure with rubber bands. The pink rubber bands match your make-up and give off a superb Y2K spirit.
