You'll Never Guess What Israeli Makeup Looked Like in the 1950s

Updated 02/02/17
Cut is known for its riveting (and very popular) "100 Years of Beauty" video series, and its most recent installment is one of the most fascinating videos yet. This time, they're taking us back in time to give us a glimpse of Israeli and Palestinian beauty trends over the last century. From demure 1930s braids to Cleopatra-esque '60s eyeliner, the looks are all inspiring. (They also prove that trends in the Middle East don't differ all that much from the ones stateside.)

Our favorite look from the minute-long video features a classic red lip and long lashes, which took over Israel in the 1950s. (To re-create the look, reach for Nars Audacious Lipstick in Rita, $34, and Benefit's Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara, $24).

Watch the video below for a crash course in the hair and makeup trends that have swept Israel and Palestine since the early 1900s!
