    Lip Smackers for life.

    1. This shimmery eyeshadow that you wore to every party.

    It was the height of glamour.

    2. These eyebrows that you had to draw on because you plucked your originals away.

    Eyebrows were profoundly uncool back then.

    3. This Bad Gal eyeliner that has been smudged around the entire perimeter of the eye.


    Such a mysterious look.

    4. Wait, what? There's nothing there? Oh I see: This pair of entirely concealed lips.

    There was nothing less chic than invisible lips.

    5. These eyebrows, plucked to resemble lil' baby sperms.

    Almost impossible to grow back.

    6. This bronzer, which has been used to cover the entire face.

    We can blame The O.C. for this trend.

    7. These lips, covered in Lancôme Juicy Tubes, which your hair was permanently stuck to.


    The more you squeezed on to your lips, the better.

    8. And this pink Chanel lip gloss, which you so desperately wanted but could never afford.


    If your mum had this, you borrowed it all the time.

    9. These eyelashes, which you coated in so much mascara that they resembled spiders.

    You always applied a good four coats of mascara.

    10. This lipliner, which in no way matched either your lips or your lipstick.

    It wasn't even supposed to match.

    11. This bright red blusher, which you applied in perfect circles over your cheeks.

    Your blusher most likely came from a 99p makeup set you got from your local Londis.

    12. This Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse, which made you feel incredibly glamorous.

    This was almost certainly your first foundation.

    13. This edible Urban Decay body powder, which you spread over your chest before every disco.

    It smelled great.

    14. This blue mascara, which made you seem incredibly mysterious.

    Tbh, this is still a glam and mysterious look.

    15. Johnson's Holiday Skin, which you loved more than literally anything else you owned.

    Even though it stained your bedsheets.

    16. These eyes, covered in blue and white frosted eyeshadow.

    So playful!

    17. This kind of crystal tattoo, applied delicately to the top of your cheek.

    This was a very edgy look.

    18. And, if you were feeling exotic, one of your front teeth.

    You saw someone on German exchange sport this look and immediately copied it.

    19. And finally, these liquid Lip Smackers, which tasted exactly like bubblegum.
