This is Jaime French and she's a YouTuber who runs a YouTube page devoted to makeup tutorials and beauty product reviews.
And a few months ago, Twitter user @Mommy_Cusses tweeted out this very funny and accurate tweet about what it would've been like if Beauty YouTubers had existed in the late '90s:
Well, Jaime saw the tweet and was up for the challenge! She decided to create a parody 1999 makeup tutorial video.
And honestly, the result is so real I can practically smell Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker and Bath & Body Works' Sun-Ripened Raspberry body spray as I watch it:
The video is filled with so many little moments that will make anyone who lived through the late '90s spit out their Surge from laughter!
Like when she pointed out that you probably wouldn't have seen a video online (since watching videos online wasn't really a thing) and that you probably would have watched the tutorial on VHS.
Or when she reminded everyone that you basically looked like you were wearing a cakey mask when wearing foundation (in everyone's defense it was in the pre-HD camera days)...
...and that you had to have frosty eyeshadow all the way up to your eyebrows.
And speaking of eyebrows, she reminds us that NOBODY had eyebrows back then...you basically tweezed them into a tiny little line on your face.
But, perhaps one of funniest things about the whole video was how she pointed out how much things have changed and how much we take selfies today and how much we share pictures of ourselves with everyone.
Now, you're lying to yourself if you say you weren't trying to achieve this glittery perfection of a look in 1999 — you could wear it everywhere from Blockbuster to a house party:
