I just discovered this amazing beauty find on the Internet! This video, by The Cut on Youtube, just recapped 100 years of what has trendy in Indian beauty. It starts out right from 1910s and goes on till 2010 and it’s mind blowing to see the changes from simplicity to different hair and makeup we’ve gone through. It’s evident how technology in makeup has also changed and we’ve come back around to a natural look enhanced by more barely-there kind of makeup.

The video also hints at beauty ideals our culture has portrayed through the years, as well as Western influences on India. This video isn’t based off of stereotypes and there cannot be a more fun way to look at history. In fact, you’ll recognize some of the looks from your favorite Bollywood movies from the past. Here, have a look.

Wasn’t that one of the coolest one minute recaps?
