In a new video by The Cut, Brazilian model Cintia Dicker shows how beauty in Brazil has evolved over the last 100 years. How many of you rocked the Xuxa ponytail in the ’90s?

By the 1940s, fruit and floral hats were all the rage – blame Carmen Miranda – as the statement piece of the decade. Also, dark lipstick was everywhere.

And most recently, Brazilians have worn big, flowing curls, a matte red lip, and just a touch of eye make up to tie it all together.
