As many of you have sifted through the endless amount of makeup tutorials that are currently resting at your fingertips on the internet, it’s possible that you’ve tried to remember at least once or twice what life was like before you had the luxury of learning how to contour and sculpt your face via 20-minute-long YouTube videos. You may have also wondered what kinds of tips and tricks beauty influencers would have trickled down to you had they been around in the ’90s. Luckily for all the inquiring minds out there, a YouTube user named Jaime French just gave the world a hilarious idea of what that might look like.
On April 10, French took to her YouTube channel to share a makeup tutorial inspired by a Twitter user’s comments on what beauty gurus most definitely would’ve taught us if they existed a few decades ago. The video shows French creating a ’90s-inspired look complete with the metallic blue eye shadow that we’ve all collectively spent over a decade cringing at, pencil thin eyebrows, and even zigzag parts. The whole thing is about as funny and nostalgic as you would probably imagine. Watch the video above and try not to cry laughing.
