  13. Maryam Z on May 18, 2021 at 5:39 pm

  14. Maja Sellmer on May 18, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    The Victorian Era look is fabulous!

  15. SarcasMiss on May 18, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    Those sources though. Smack right in your face haters.

  16. EnglertRacing96 on May 18, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    aaaaaa…. big hell no on the unibrow

  17. Ashley donanova on May 18, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    that uni-brow had me like AFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFpleaseno!!!!

  18. sophia K on May 18, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    Kinda shocked to see Ancient Greece appreciated eyebrows, few time periods liked natural body Psyche.

  19. Sydney O on May 18, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    I loved the Victorian era 😍😍

  20. mixuaquela123 on May 18, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    2:44 She is so freaking beautiful! god

  21. TZU-HAN Chen on May 18, 2021 at 5:47 pm

    I noticed that most historical makeups buzzfeed shows highlight red or pink lips, and so do now. In makeup field, red never fades just like black and white in couture field.

  22. hotchocolate1913 on May 18, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    Can we see the way people dressed from long ago up to now?

  23. Alex Byakuya on May 18, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    The red head. Jesus take the wheel

  24. momin on May 18, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    Victorian era gotta be my favorite

  25. Saf on May 18, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    Elizabethan era make up very creepy

  26. threeVs17 on May 18, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    i really like the french revolution and victorian eras

  27. Keerthana Gurushankar on May 18, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I found the Indian really beautiful too.
    But that makes me wonder if my preference has anything to do with my being Indian…

    On an unrelated note, great video, BuzzFeed! 😀

  28. miglespt97 on May 18, 2021 at 5:55 pm

    YEAH! GO UNIBROWS!!! #TeamUnibrow #brutiful

  29. parallax on May 18, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    I love the fact that I see tons of different people saying "I love ___________________ woman’s look!"
    It just proves that everyone likes different things, and each type can be considered beautiful.

  30. rockandclassiccars on May 18, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I think this video is very informative, and all the models are very pretty. 
    I also think that this is one of the friendliest YouTube comment sections I have ever seen. Everyone seems to have something nice to say either about the girls in the video or each other’s personal style. It’s really refreshing.

  31. Swan V on May 18, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    these women are beautiful!

  32. 【ɐpɐɹıP ɐuɐʇıdɐC】 on May 18, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    I see people on the street with a pre-french revolution make-up…

  33. Allee Her on May 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Greece: eyebrows on FLEEK

  34. Haval Alkurdi on May 18, 2021 at 6:02 pm

  35. etherael _ on May 18, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Love pre-French revolution <3

  36. Elizabeth Kirkland on May 18, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    ….why….did the unibrow look good?? >_>

  37. Hurumdum on May 18, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    I love these types of videos! I wonder how fashion will evolve in the future and if our looks of today will one day look as different to the people of the future as these looks do to us.

  38. Beau Duncan on May 18, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    The Victorian Era model is gorgeous.

  39. iQLee Mawati on May 18, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    I’ve got the unibrow down. I should have lived back then in Greece.

  44. Arley B on May 18, 2021 at 6:11 pm

  45. Janel on May 18, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    I love how the Ancient Greeks valued highly natural beauty

  46. TreClaire on May 18, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    Oh man, you really should have done blue-black lipstick on the ancient Egypt one. That would have been SICK AS FFUUUUUUCCCKK

  47. LoL Zakeria on May 18, 2021 at 6:15 pm

    I loved the Victoria hairstyle.

  48. Rhea Jean on May 18, 2021 at 6:16 pm

  49. Lizzie Gladitsch on May 18, 2021 at 6:18 pm
