Everyone gets so offended ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

Hope y'all know, not just white people have blue eyes

@greenhairedlucy inspired makeup. Calm down crazy

Wow๐Ÿ˜

@per.se.ph.one @so.phia_ Elizabeth Taylor played Cleo back in the day... she has blue eyes and wore this type of wig with the jewelry... hence "inspired" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Pretty sure this in based on the damn movie smh y'all hurt over everything

@total.hypocrite thank you!!!!!๐Ÿ™„ people stay hurt for no reason๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@so.phia_ I hope you do know that Cleopatra wasn't Egyptian, she was actually Greek, so yeah the whole thing is actually BS anyways

@2000saesthetics Cleopatra VII was of the Ptolemaic dynasty, therefore making her Greek. Alexander the Great of Macedonia conquered Egypt shortly before his death in 323 BCE, and the Egyptian portion of his empire was given to his general Ptolemy. Anybody after Ptolemy's rule was Greek/Macedonian. After Cleopatra's suicide in 30 BCE, Egypt was conquered by the Romans under Augustus so leaders after Cleo were Roman. While Cleo was Egyptian in terms of nationality, ethnically she was Greek/Macedonian and therefore white. Mosaic artwork, coinage and sculptures made during her reign prove this as fact.

@makaila8674 she didn't once say it was true to origin because her look is INSPIRED by Cleopatra meaning aspects are taken and not entirely copied. She can wear whatever colour contacts she wants because she never claimed that this was a true replication of Cleopatra.

@dazeblaze Cleopatra was of the Ptolemaic dynasty, which was Greek, and therefore Cleo was white. Alexander the Great conquered Egypt shortly before his death in 323 BCE. When he died, Ptolemy I Soter, a GREEK general took over Egypt. From then onwards, his descendants continued to rule Egypt and since inbreeding was custom in Egypt among pharaohs of ALL dynasties, the Ptolemies, and therefore Cleo remained Greek. Following Cleo's suicide in 30 BCE, the Roman emperor Augustus conquered Egypt, and therefore all pharaohs from 323 BCE onwards were white. This is a fairly accurate representation (eye colour is questionable), and this can be proved by looking at sculptures, mosaic artwork and coinage made during Cleo's reign. Cleo is Egyptian in terms of nationality, but she is ethnically Greek. Now if this we're representing your average Egyptian, then this would not be accurate and Egyptians during her reign were either mixed (due to Greek and early Roman colonization) or were ethnically black. But this is Cleopatra, there is no whitewashing in this video whatsoever. I have studied Classical civilizations, ie. Rome, Greece and Egypt so I am very knowledgable on the subject. Just an FYI.

why do people gotta take shit too far in the comments, chill the fuck out & let people enjoy things

Drama up in heeeerree!!

Damn the comments ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Song?

@holdevine yes I'm aware she's Greek, but Greek people also usually don't have blue eyes anyways

@c.high I wasn't aware sorry

@so.phia_ all good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ now we know๐Ÿ˜œ

@sundasj14 it's 'you'll find a way' by Santigold :)

No no no no no no no.

No on every fuckin level

2016 was the year to be offended, leave that shit back there

cultural appropriation !!1!1!1!!1!1!1!1!1!1!!1 ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค@jazhandsarequeer

@kaniya123_ Cleopatra was ethnically Greek. She is of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Do some research.

@kaniya123_ alot of Egyptians were black and arab some were greek aswell they were a good mixture some were light and some were dark .

@yung_reckless012 chill..

@clarissacharvat13 will you guys stop getting offended over everything somebody good breathe the wrong way and people will get angry

@_nanassi_ I'm making fun of the people who get offended. I personally think it's stupid to get offended over a makeup tutorial/hairstyle/the way somebody dresses. I'm sorry if you took it as I was actually offended. As long as someone is not hurting themselves or anybody else, they should do what they like.

Stfu @clarissacharvat and I have done some research, and I think its stupid for you to say she is Greek but she's not, likeBITCH

The Egyptian whore lol

@xteresac you right

@gracie_raymond

@kaniya123_ She is Greek. Are you stupid as fuck? I think you are. While she was born in Egypt and her NATIONALITY is Egyptian, ETHNICALLY she is GREEK. She is a DIRECT descendant of Ptolemy I Soter, a Greek general of Alexander the Great who COLONIZED Egypt. All Pharoahs after 323 BCE were white and either of GREEK (until Cleopatra) or ROMAN origin. Henceforth she was WHITE. But continue to make yourself look stupid as fuck when the archaeological evidence, as well as primary sources prove you WRONG. You clearly don't know how to do research, you imbecile.

@wavy.linaaaa Like I don't understand how people are claiming otherwise when it's a fact that she's ethnically Greek๐Ÿ˜‚ I think whitewashing in the media is a serious problem, but in this case they actually got it right.

Shit like this makes PEOPPE think that cultural appropriation is cool and hip and makes people who know its fucked up look like they're "overreacting" or "taking it to far" . Wtf is wrong with society.. stop with this dumb shit

People*

Her eyes!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜

At the end

People still going in๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€ fuck being Greek or whatever... did you like the video we nah?๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Bitch I am Cleopatra

@niyosha.zkr

@amelie_papillion I was thinking the same thing. Nothing new just added extra steps.

@xteresac She was of Egyptian and Greek nationality yet her mother was of black decent ..... and she wore cornrows ..... uhh yeah ... cough..

@xxforever_kendraxx Um no? All archaeological evidence/primary points to her being fully Greek. Good try though. Do your research. I've studied Classical civilizations for 6 years, and that includes extensive research on Cleopatra.

@xxforever_kendraxx primary sources**

Not with blue eyes

what's the song

@irizrizen @jessicajenann @patience_98_

@xteresac I had already done a fully analyzation ...like two years ago then I looked for new updated data before I chose to state facts on your comment . The bones of her sister found in turkey were observed and turns out her , her sister and mother were of African decent ... they created a 3D model of what she looked like and she was of African decent and wore cornrows ...also in tons of renaissance art she was depicted as being of darker tones referred to as "negress" and their art was based on findings before that time ... so uh yes I did my research have been for a while now...

Didn't know Cleopatra had blue eyes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@xxforever_kendraxx I'm not debating with you but wanted to point out that you are right and wrong. She is of Egyptian descent and probably wore cornrows, but she is also heavily Macedonian. So she would be biracial and neither dark nor light. Her father was Greek and her mother was Egyptian. So yes she is from Egyptian descent, but Egyptians tend to label themselves as Arabian not African. While your research is correct, there are left-out facts. Her ethnicity is greatly debated upon, yet I believe the most clear answer is that she is a mix of races.

@xxforever_kendraxx And yet, you are wrong since the sister you are talking about - Arsinoe IV was her half sister. Blood relation on her fathers side. They did not share the same mother, and hence the term HALF. But apparently you like to pick and choose what is valid in your research. Renaissance art is irrelevant as the renaissance was more than a millennium after Cleopatra's reign. Roman/Ptolemaic sources prove that she was white. Those sources are from her actual lifetime. Don't bring irrelevant sources when actual sources of the time prove otherwise. Again, don't argue with someone who has actually has a university degree in the subject.

@itsmaddiewilson She also left out the fact that Arsinoe is her half sister, and while Arisnoe's mother was in fact either Nubian or Egyptian, they did not share that same mother.

@xteresac yes correct. There are many facts she neglected that are vital to this discussion.

@itsmaddiewilson It's irritating when people like to pick and choose facts in order to fit their own misinformed narrative.

@noamurray i cant remember the title but its by santigold

@lamaobeid_

@noamurray You'll find a way (switch and sinden remix) by santigold

@meraysaad

I don't think cleopatra had blue eyes tho..

Why the blue eyes? Cleopatra would have had brown eyes

SONG ?

@xteresac First of all, quit being so condescending. Just because you claim to have a university degree, does not give you a right to assert yourself as right and think you are superior to others. As someone who is a historian and has studied in an accredited school for almost 6+ years, you do not represent the tone of University students. You are name calling, swearing and continuously arguing with others because they have another perspective. I have studied Cleopatra to a great depth and she is of Egyptian descent. Through no research has there been proven that she is Greek. Just because you assert yourself as someone advocating for white power, as you are doing, does not mean that your "facts" are true. I do not know where you got your sources from but they are incorrect. Jesus for example, through much research, has been discovered not to be a white man either. What I can take from your argument is that you have this stance of white dominance and because Cleopatra was a great figure of her time, you automatically argue with others over your naive belief that she is white. Not all great figures in humanity have been white. We all came genetically originated from Africa...

@milouvandijck

@talisa_1804 das ist doch ne Idee fรผr Karneval ๐Ÿ˜

@gill_leecroft

@alexiigustavsson

@racheleseragnoli "A @marc'antonio piace questo elemento"

@nononosayya Again, you're wrong. All archaeological evidence, as well as primary sources point to her being Greek. A simple, "was Cleopatra VII Greek?" search on google gives you a plethora of sources that prove this. The Ptolemies practiced incest, as did all other Egyptian dynasties to keep their bloodline PURE. This is an indisputable fact. How the fuck are you going to tell all Classicists (historians who studies Ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt) that they are wrong when all sources from the time of Cleo point to her, as well as her family members (born in wedlock and not to concubines) were Greek. She is a Ptolemy. The Ptolemies are Greek. She was Egyptian in terms of nationality. It is the same thing as someone being ethnically Italian, but are American due to getting their citizenship or being born in the US. Coinage for example that dates to Cleopatra's reign showcase her as being white, with a large hooked nose - something that is common in people who are Greek. It's only Afrocentrists who attempt to dispute this fact solely because her HALF sister's mother was in fact either Egyptian or Nubian. As I stated previously, she was blood related to Arsinoe through who father, who was GREEK. Cleo was however the first Ptolemy to completely embrace the Egyptian culture, and was the first to actually learn the Egyptian language among the many languages she spoke. But go ahead and make yourself look stupid by completely ignoring archaeological evidence and primary sources. I don't have a "naive" belief. I am stating FACTS. You on the other hand are twisting history in order to fit your Afrocentrist narrative.

Lolll I loveee these arguments @xteresac @xxforever_kendraxx @nononosayya but interestingly none of you have actually complimented the girl who did this tutorial. Instead you bicker over who's right and wrong. When will we all just sit back and be able to embrace her beauty, the girl and Cleopatra, no matter if her race is debatable? The world may never know lol. She did a lovely job.

@thaynaraolsen "You'll find a way- Santiogold" but it's the Switch&Sinden Remix

@k_holtzclaw I know she did a lovely job, and it's pretty evident that she is taking inspiration from Liz Taylor's portrayal of Cleo. Other than the eye colour, since Liz had violet eyes, her look is pretty much identical. But people are claiming that this is whitewashing which it is absolutely not the case. Whitewashing is a serious problem and I absolutely agree with it being called out, but in this case it's not necessary to do so. That's what I take issue with.

Putana la @shreyarambhujun

Cleopatra eyes aren't blue ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜‘

@sarahhrw ME TOO

I feel like lowkey this is cultural appropriation? anyone more educated have some thoughts?

@xteresac whats whitewashing hope you dont mind i just like drama

@joystarsx When you get someone who is white to play someone who isn't, even though there are a ton of great candidates of the same ethnic origin to play the role. Like for example, a white woman who is chosen to play Mulan over a woman who is actually ethnically Chinese. I hope that makes sense.

@jackie.lincoln

SANTIGOLD

@deathwishflower well they did use hair straightening techniques, they were black of course but in the hierarchy the dark Egyptians are considered poorer because they worked in the sun โ˜€๏ธ
