Ancient Egypt These are my three main topics My project is about Egyptians Make-up, jewelry, and clothing which all go under the pillar of Art and Culture. Make-up Jewelry Clothing Ancient Egypt men and woman in almost all ages wore make-up. Both men and women line there eyes with a thick black eye liner known as kohl. Kohl was made from finely ground minerals and kept in elaborate cosmetic jars.Besides using kohl to line there eyes, they also used it to darken their lashes and eyebrows. Egyptians painted their eyelid with blue,green or black eye shadow sometimes made from powdered mineral.One reason that Ancient Egyptians wore eye make-up was that it protected their eyes from the sandy and dusty Egyptian weather. Ancient Egyptians also believed that make-up have magical powers. Jewelry was very important and popular in Ancient Egypt, no matter what your social class was. Ancient Egyptians wore jewelry to show their wealth and they believed that wearing jewelry would protect them from evil spirits and gave them strength. Egyptians also believed that wearing jewelry made them more attractive to the egyptian gods. Both men and women adorned themselves with ring,earrings,bracelets,decorated buttons, necklaces, neck collars, pendants and they also decorated their clothes with jewelry.Both wealthy mean and woman wore headdresses. Only rich Egyptian could afford jewelry made from gold and precious stones.Ordinary Egyptians wore jewelry that was made from colored pottery beads,shells or beaten copper.
