With the night of nights mere hours away, we decided to get deep into the archives and dig up the most ~iconic~ beauty moments from years gone by. The best, the questionable, and the unforgivable. Peak noughties nostalgia ahead...

Let’s break it down into sections shall we? Starting with Bits.
If you weren’t sleeking, spiking up, then crimping and curling sections of your bits, were you even an attendee?
Kellie Hoggart and Charli Robinson from Hi Five, 2000.

Bits are to be teamed with strapless satin. Obvs.
Holy Valance and Carla Bonner from Neighbours, 2000.

Zig-zag part optional. Also, let's take a moment for Kate Ritchie's incredible frosted eye and mulberry lip combo.
Bec Cartwright, Kylie Watson and Kate Ritchie from Home and Away, 2000.

Working bits with blue eyeshadow is also obviously a fabulous play.
Sophie Faulkner, 2000.

Bits aren't just the fine hairs that frame the face, they can also be the ends, spiked up in between tight curls, because, contrast.
Jo Beth Taylor, 2000.

All of the salt spray. All of it.
Sonia, slaying it.

Aquatic Eye Makeup
Right up to the brow bone, please.
Isabel Lucas, 2004.

By far the best image in this gallery. Scandal'us. The winners of Popstars in 2001. In green fish-scale eye shadow and matching army camouflage.

This really makes us miss flicking out the edge of our razored side fringes with a straightener. TBH, still want to do this look.
Sophie Monk, 2004

Bec's is a little more curvy, and sweeps into a tendril-y side bun of course.
Bec Hewitt 2004.

Can we bring Elle’s tendril curls back asap? Undone waves are so much effort.
Elle Macpherson, 2000.

Everyone had a bangs stage circa 2005 — Tammy Sursock started it.
Tammin Sursok, 2005.

Kerri-Anne, you are a god damn queen. That peach blush and lip combo is perfect on you.
Kerri-Anne Kennerley, 2000.

Highlighter was born in the '90s y'all. And in the early 2000s, we liked it concentrated under the brow bone.
Livinia Nixon, 2005.

Shout out to highlighter paired with the noughties girl essential — the bouffant ponytail.
Jennifer Hawkins, 2006.

Lilac frosted eye shadow was a Jackie O spesh. Still love this girly look on her.
Jackie O, 2002.

A side-fringe, on pencil-thin brow, on a frosted shadow, was a true, beauty trifecta. Let's not ignore the matching frosted dress.
Madeleine West, aka, Dee Bliss from Neighbours, 2002.

Jess showed us how to do frosted tips on frosted eye shadow.
Jessica Rowe, 2002.

This is offensively unoffensive. Even her eyebrows aren't that noughties.
Catriona Rowntree, 2002.

Megan Gale was and always will be hair goals.

Skin so fresh, lips so glossy. Is that dress Sass and Bide? Baby Jodi Gordon is everything.
Jodi Gordon, 2006.

Tammin you queen, this exactly how we wanted to look at our formal. So many layers of Juicy Tube.
Tammin Sursok, 2002.

Serious question: Is Sophie Faulkner Benjamin Button? She does not age.
Sophie Faulkner, 2002.

Hate to break it, but colourful hair was a thing long before fairy floss hair chalk. In fact, it looks like Pink may have taken to her hair with actual spray paint. Also, Pink attended The Logies?

Colourful hair crimped, was amaze. Destiny's Child coming down under, also amaze.
Beyonce Knowles, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland, 2002.

Shakira invented Ombré. Credit where credit's due.

Um, this look was everywhere at Coachella last weekend was it not? So into it.
Macy Gray, 2000.

Top Deck Hair
Tell me this wasn't your makeup reference for your formal if you graduated between 2005-2007. Only the most hard core could do the top deck, but the pinned back bits were for everyone. Starting to think this gallery could’ve been just all Bec Hewitt.
