Powerful Video Shows What Women's Beauty Actually Looked Like In History

By

Lately, we've seen a lot of viral videos showing beauty trends throughout the decades.

It's fascinating to see how beauty standards evolved over the ages.

But let's be real, those done-up faces probably aren't how real women actually looked on a daily basis back then.

Recently, Karolina Żebrowska, the talented gal behind Domowa Kostiumologia​ costume blog, set out to create a more historically accurate version of how women's beauty changed over the past century.

She posted a video on YouTube called "Real Women - Beauty Through The Decades The Realistic Way" that takes you on a visual journey through the trends of the century while revealing things those high-fashion beauty videos don't show you.

According to Żebrowska,

I wanted to do a more historically accurate one. As I was doing some research, I became more and more aware that beautiful faces and fashion we see on the photos, ads and fashion plates are just an idealistic version of reality. So here's to reality.

Check out the video to get a glimpse of real beauty trends throughout history.
