Whether you're a makeup lover, brand, or just an enthusiast, we all have to start our journey somewhere. One Reddit user found vintage home pages of your favorite makeups sites that prove that even the biggest and baddest have to start somewhere. I'm talking the beginning of it all for brands like Ulta, Sephora, Urban Decay, and Too faced. Get ready for a good laugh, because you're about to have your mind blown.
Just like celebrities have bad hair eras and you have those awkward teen photos hiding in your photo album, brands have gone through the same. With some of the best beauty companies starting in the '90s, they all have their fair share of embarrassing moments. Reddit user Potato_Quesodila dug back into the archives to find beauty brand's home pages from the '90s and early '00s to give everyone a good laugh.
The Reddit post features some of the biggest brands like Ulta, which was founded in 1990, and Sephora, which started in 1970. The user also rounds up the first pages from Urban Decay, founded in 1996, and Too Faced, started in 1998. While these brands might be the top in the industry today, their very first web pages were far from what they are today. Turn on Drake's Started From The Bottom and prepare to have a good laugh.
You might know Sephora as the powerhouse of beauty, but back in 2001 it was just trying to figure out the internet.
Who knew Benefit's Hoola was new back in 2001?
Sephora Collection was alive and well!
According to the Reddit user, Ulta's description stayed up like this for two years.
Hard Candy was sold at Ulta, putting in perspective just how '90s this whole website is.
By 2004 they were running the same sales that they offer today.
3. Urban Decay
Believe it of not, this was Urban Decay's very first home page back in 1998.
I'm not sure what's more confusing — Jessica Simpson in the "girls who rock" section or the brand saying that the site is "protected by firewalls and pitbulls."
By 2004 they were giving away free voting buttons with every order.
4. Too Faced
Although the photos have been removied, you can see just how simple their first home page was.
Remember the old Too Faced logo? Envy was all over the home page in 2000.
By 2005, Too Faced was getting the hang of things.
It doesn't get much more old school than this!
