The Y2K that celebs are currently obsessed with
Whether it is Jennifer Lopez’s space buns or Suhana Khan’s double braided pigtails or even Khushi Kapoor’s ombre lips with bright blue sculpted eyeshadow, the Y2K trend is gaining momentum and might be the lexicon of 2021’s beauty scene. Be it Pinterest or Instagram, netizens are simply obsessed with this early 2000s trend.
So what is Y2K? Y2K refers to all the events that happened in the year 2000 or the beginning of the 2000s. And the makeup and hair trend of the time is making a comeback in 2021. Recently celebs like Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra, and star kids like Khushi Kapoor dropped some amazing early 2000s looks that we will deconstruct so you ace the Y2K look.
Here’s breaking down a few Y2K hair and makeup looks of different celebs:
Recently, Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha flaunted her gorgeous orange-tinted lips in matte and nude eyes with minimal makeup and a link line of eyebrows. Instead of nicely groomed straight hair, she opted for a little unkempt look that instantly reminded us of the early 200s look that was teamed with a thin silver choker.
Shah Rukh khan’s daughter Suhana Khan is one star kid who has been obsessing with the glossy makeup look for a while. Though we’re always crushing over her lip gloss collection, her stunning double-braided hairstyle created havoc in the beauty industry a while back. This cool hairstyle is all about embracing a little fun with dull outfits.
Actress Janhvi Kapoor’s sister Khushi Kapoor is all about the Y2K beauty trend. One look at her Instagram feed and you’ll notice her love for brown tones, glossy lips, shimmery eyes and sculpted cheekbones with oodles of highlighter. Her blue eyeshadow look with a line of shimmer on the crease and highlighted nose tips is all things playful and chic.
A while back Hollywood actress Margot Robbie was spotted in this beautiful early 2000s hairstyle that she complemented with nude undertones and brown-tinted lip balm. With nicely arched eyebrows, she decked up eyes with mascara and the contouring technique was simply on point. However, her front braided hair and middle partition was the highlight.
For months now, celebs have proved that Y2K space buns can never go extinct. Megan Thee Stallion shelled out goals in this imperfectly perfect trend. With blue and platinum highlighted space buns, 3D eyeshadow in icy blue and ombre lips, the singer added cute details and fun texture to her look.
