Monday Inspo No. 51: 100 years of Beauty20 Jul 2015
If you haven't come across the "100 years of beauty" video series by CUS, you should definitely check it out! While exploring beauty trends across decades and continents, CUS shows us in a little bit over a minute, how similar, yet different they could be.
It's fascinating to watch how historical events, political or religious rule influenced beauty ideals in their days. Take for example Iran where sudden oppression changed the way women dressed entirely, or the difference between North and South Korea, where decades of dictatorship rule allowed for little change.
On the other hand there's India, which seems to have often struck an interesting balance between tradition and trends and other Asian countries which eagerly copied Western beauty trends.
All in all, it's rather light entertainment and should probably not be taken too seriously, i.e. beyond what it's title promises!
