If you were a teen in the noughties, then the below beauty fails will be something you can relate too. Unless you were super, amazingly cool and ahead of your time – but without beauty bloggers and YouTube tutorials it’s safe to say us noughties teens were on our own…
- Foundation that was too light
Shade-matching was a toughie! You really just had to make a guess and then look like Casper the Ghost.
- Foundation that was too dark
After looking like Casper you decided to go darker… And then looked like a rotten tangerine. #Sexy
- Clear lip gloss
It seemed really cool at the time…
- Clear mascara
This literally didn’t make a difference to your lashes! Apart from making them feel really heavy and kinda weird.
- Inside eyeliner
Cheap kohl pencils + easy application = smudgy eyes before Geography at 2pm.
- OTT bronzer
A little bit on your cheekbone…Ooo a little bit to highlight my chin…Ooo a little tap on my nose…
- OTT blusher
- Body glitter
This stuff was acceptable to wear ANYWHERE. Arms, legs, neck, hey let’s just dab a bit on our hair too. Why?!?!
- The worst eyebrows
Shaving lines in them? Over-plucking them? Waxing them till you’re left with bright red patches… Yeah we’ve all been there.
- Crazy layers
Ahhh. Short choppy layers. All the rage.
- Flicky hair
Layers + a nice little flick with your straightener = cool chick on the block. (Or so we thought.)
- Hair mascara
Your mama had forbidden you to dye your hair so you had to go for the next best thing – hair mascaraaa! Purple and blue were our personal faves.
- The multi-coloured manicure
Wearing a different colour polish on every fingernail! LOL. Oh dear.
Ahhh the good old days ey! And all of these fails would be happening with a bit of R Kelly, Ignition playing in the background – one our noughties, faves!
