The '100 Years of Beauty' video by cut.com showcases a century's worth of beauty looks in just over a minute.

What we consider attractive or beautiful changes with time. It's interesting to go back and see how our standards of beauty have evolved to create our current conception.

To further enhance each hair style and makeup look, the model in the video poses with the same style and attitude as someone living in the decade might have. So, for instance, she looks blase and apathetic when posing with purple lipstick and slightly crimped hair (the 90s). Meanwhile, for the 1950s, the model pouts at the camera like a sultry sex pot (a la Marilyn Monroe).
