100 Years of Beauty Evolution Video

This Video Showing Beauty Trends of the Past 100 Years Is Mesmerizing

When it comes to our TV watching habits, we can't help but notice that period pieces like Boardwalk Empire and Mad Men have a starring role. And while you may think that there are more-meritorious reasons for tuning in (hello, Jon Hamm), what kept us coming back for more was the evolution of the hair and makeup. Seems like we're not the only ones obsessed with ever-changing beauty trends: YouTube channel Cut Video, the same geniuses behind the video of grandmas getting high for the first time, created a superbrief video showing how far beauty has come in the past 100 years. With a glam squad of hairstylists and makeup artists, a model transforms into the reigning beauty look of each decade, starting with the soft glamour of the 1910s and ending with (you guessed it) a selfie. We fully believe it's never too early for Halloween beauty inspiration, but perhaps some of these trends can make a comeback in the modern era — we're hoping for bee-stung lips!
