– I bet like back in ancient times where boys are just like, “I like you better “when you’re not wearing make-up,” like, this is probably where it started from. – That’s such a good point. We are trying out ancient beauty rituals. – Ooh. – Mud, right? Isn’t that what this is gonna be? Like, you’re just gonna give me some mud and be like, look at this foundation. – I feel like I have tried ancient make-up before. My mom has some shit left from the 80’s. – I’m afraid I’m gonna learn that I’m allergic to something that I didn’t know about before. – This will be interesting though, it’ll be cool to kind of see, like how things have evolved. – I feel like make-up didn’t come in many shades then. – So, this may be a bad day for me. Cleopatra was known for bathing in milk and honey. – She’s also known for yeast infections. – I feel like that’s the thing. – Yep. – Maybe we just go in with the honey and we’ll just see what happens.
Even though I low key wanna chug this milk. (laughter) – I mean, it’s just like, you’re putting soup on your face, I don’t, you guys. – It smells like all of the lunch boxes. – Eww, I’m so mad. – This weirdly feels like it’s gonna make me break out more. – I would not use milk on my skin ever again. – I feel like a used band-aid right now. – If it was good enough for Cleo, I’m gonna turn my nose up at it. – I’ll turn my nose up at it, I don’t wanna do this again. (upbeat drum music) – This goes against everything I stand for. – So, straight up just put the chalk on our fucking faces? – Okay. – Is this the same stuff they use to like powder wigs? I’m gonna power my hair because, racism.
– Ooh, ooh, lots of fall out. – Oh, God. It’s getting everywhere. – Something about chalk just kind of smells fresh though, you know (laughs)? – It doesn’t seem like it would even be attractive. – I think I look pretty attractive right now. – I just feel exceptionally like I have a ton of dandruff. You want to mash it, Jen? – Yeah, I do, you know me so well. – Ah, oh. – I mean, I’m on my period right now, I’m just very unhappy, so this is pretty good for me. – They put a lot of sweet things on their faces. – Aren’t the flies just coming for you? – I don’t think there’s a right way to do this, but I’m pretty sure I’m doing it wrong. – What did they use, well, I guess you really didn’t need make-up removers back then. – Make-up remover was the river. – It’s actually really difficult to blend and it dries down very fast, so you gotta be quick.
– I’m trying, I’m trying. – I’m kind of into the mulberry rouge. – How’s that? – It looks like blush, I think. – Is this clean, did we clean this? – It’s over Jen, just keep eating it. – Okay. Kohl, K-O-H-L, not coal. – Oh, it’s not from a coal mine. Then, what is this? – Wow, this is the OG cat eye. – Brows were a thing back then. – I wonder what ancient Sephora was like? – I love this. You shouldn’t blend it with your fingers though, oh no. – It starts off not that strong and then suddenly it’s like, that’s a lot of pigment. – I’m really going hardcore with my brows with this ’cause I’m really in to it. – Color wise, it looks like any regular make-up. Consistency wise, it’s very much a powder, so it’s difficult to apply with, I think, the level of precision we’re used to. Your eyes look nice. – Jen, your brows. – I know, they’re nice aren’t they? – Cleopatra had a lot of skill to be able to do such a sharp cat eye with powder.
– It’s like doing the crossword in pen. – I feel gross. I just, I feel like sticky. – I didn’t realize that the phrase “beauty is pain” has been around for forever. – It is crazy how the principle of it is the same. Line your eyes, make your lips redder, make your cheeks redder. I admire ancient women, they’re trying to hustle and they’re just using what they had. – I’m jealous.
I’m jealous of your ability to turn berries into actual face cosmetics.
