A bit of English history

I have about zero interest in makeup, so I almost skipped past this video.  Glad I decided to watch it.   If you are interested in the cultural changes brought about by the industrial revolution, this video will fascinate you.  Most fascinating bit of odd trivia was learning that tuberculosis was rampant and the TB symptoms of pale skin, flushed cheekbones, brightened eyes were considered beautiful  and became a fashion trend to imitate.  Another of those, “nothing new under the sun” moments, considering the heroin chic trend in the 1990s.
