A Girl Tests Beauty Products From the Past, and It’s Like Real Time Travel

Mako is a vintage makeup collector who tests and documents amazing beauty products from the past and shares her impressions with the world on her TikTok account. It’s unbelievable how much vintage beauty products can say about the beauty routine women followed in the twentieth century, and we learn this thanks to Mako. Teeny-tiny lipstick, a “hamburger” lipgloss, a lipstick carousel, and even liquid leg makeup women often used instead of stockings back in the day — here are just a few exotic pieces of good old cosmetics you can see in Mako’s videos.

We at Bright Side couldn’t stop watching Mako’s videos about unique cosmetics of the past, and now it’s your turn to go on this exciting journey through time.

This lipstick carousel from the 1960s is really fun!

Women often used this liquid leg makeup instead of nylon stockings back in the 1940s.
