The early 2000s certainly saw some iconic beauty trends, as those who lived through them will attest. From frosted tips to body glitter to crimped hair, the '90s and early '00s saw it all. If you're like me, your middle school life was probably defined by some of these beauty products and trends that are sure to give you some major waves of nostalgia.
Everyone's first mascara (extra points if you had the clear version).
But the real question is, did you have the Morning Burst Surge?
You couldn't watch MTV for five minutes without Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Julianne Hough, or Adam Levine popping up to sell you Proactiv.
Before the days of Tarte Shape Tape, we had Maybelline Cover Stick.
5. Suave Kids and L'Oreal Kids hair products
Why yes, I do still use the Suave Kids Double Dutch Apple detangler.
6. Those triangular Covergirl foundations
And it probably made you look like an oompa loompa.
7. Bon Bons nail polish
The cutest bottles in your collection, which also consisted of Claire's, Wet n Wild, and Limited Too nail polish. Did anyone else use nail polish to decorate literally everything they owned?
8. Lip Smackers
You and I have some problems if you don't think Dr. Pepper is the best flavor.
9. Victoria's Secret and Pink body mists
To douse ourselves with after gym class.
10. Lady Speedstick Teen Spirit deodorant
The other post-gym class essential.
11. Sun In
No, I will not stop spritzing until my hair looks like the girl on the bottle.
12. Cherry ChapStick
Obviously popularized by Katy Perry's 2008 claim to fame "I Kissed A Girl."
13. Celebrity perfume
A Britney Spears perfume always made the Christmas list.
14. All. The. Eyeliner.
Wanna hear the best news? This trend's hay-day isn't over yet. Check out Kat Von D's latest collaboration with Billie Joe Armstrong.
15. Hair wraps
The tell-tale sign of who went on vacation over winter break.
And you were of course devastated to find out the chocolate mud mask wasn't actually edible.
17. A hair straightener you never put down
I'd like to publicly apologize to my hair for all the suffering I put it through.
18. Over-plucked eyebrows
If I could go back in time and give myself one piece of advice, it would be to put the damn tweezers down.
19. Bath and Body Works Art Stuff
Ah, the good old days when glitter was in everything, even our shower gel.
