Watch 100 Years of Beauty Trends in One Minute
Practically every week, there’s a new beauty trend to keep up with. From the recent obsession with celebrity bobs to pastel nails and dark lipstick, it can be hard to stay in the loop. So imagine if someone took all that rapid-fire trend shifting and turned it into one super-fast-paced time-lapse video. Now stop imagining. Because this is reality.
This video covers over 100 years of beauty in one minute, showing how beauty standards have shifted over the past century. The time-lapsed model quickly transforms from 1910 all the way through 2010, evoking the flappers, pinup girls and bombshells of our past.
The late ’90s and early 2000s hit more on the styles we’re familiar with. A little bit of emo grunge followed by the classic perfect waves and long eyelashes just begging for a selfie, and we’re suddenly looking at ourselves.
It’s definitely a wild ride, and seeing some of the gorgeous looks, especially from the early 1900s, makes us wonder if we’ll ever throw it back to the vintage styles again.
What do you think of this crazy time-lapse? Excited for the future or nostalgic for the past? Let us know in the comments below.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
