TikTok users are channelling the 00s with new viral makeover challenge

Oops!... They’ve done it again

From the app that gave us “Old Town Road” comes a new viral challenge. That’s right, there’s a new TikTok meme in town, so put down your cowboy boots and pick up your lip gloss because this time we are turning back the clock.

Picture this: it’s 2000, you’ve just celebrated the new millenium and the fact that the Y2K bug didn’t actually bring about the end of the world. A 19-year-old Britney Spears has released her second album and your favourite couple Brad and Jen have just tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Malibu. 

If you’re feeling nostalgic for those simpler times, then take yourself over to TikTok because it’s all being dredged up from the past, in a new viral challenge which sees users giving themselves 00s makeovers. Cue the return of frosty blue eyeshadow, butterfly clips, and brown lip liner. Not to mention, scrunchies, skinny brows, and a lot of hoop earrings. 

Soundtracked to Britney’s “Oops!... I Did It Again”, people are picking up their make-up bags and transforming themselves into their best 00s selves. See some of the best ones below.
