The Evolution Of Makeup
Transcript of The Evolution Of Makeup
( 4000 BC) The tombs from this era have revealed unguent jars. Unguent was a substance used by men and women to keep their skin hydrated, and to prevent wrinkles from the dry heat. Women of Egypt also decorated their eyes by applying a dark green color to the water line and blackening the lashes and lid with kohl, which was made from
antimony or soot. Rome, Greece, Persia
1st Century AD) The Romans used kohl to darken the eyelashes and lid. Chalk was used to whiten the complexion and rouge* was worn on the cheeks.
In the Greco-Roman society women wore white lead and chalk on their faces.
Persian women used henna dyes to stain their hair and face, in belief that these dyes enabled them to summon the majesty of earth.
*Rouge- Any of various red cosmetics used for coloring the cheeks and lips. Europe, Spain
(6-13 centuries) During the European middle ages, pale skin meant you were wealthy. Sixth century women achieve that look by bleeding themselves. However Spanish women wore pink makeup.
In the thirteenth century, women wore pink lipstick to show they could afford synthetic makeup Rich women begin wearing Aqua Toffana, a face powder made with arsenic. This later leads to the death of some husbands. Lead paint was also used to lighten the face. Italian Renaissance
(1600's) Regency Era
(late 1700's) The most important makeup item worn during this time was rouge. During this time eyebrows were blackened and hair was dyed. Most of the makeup and dyes were made from herbs and other plants. Some was also made from lead and mercury.
This caused some women skin problems, hair loss, stomach problems, the shakes, and even death. 1800's 1820's The first non-toxic mascara was formed, named after Mabel, the sister of the creator, T.L Williams. This mascara is now known as Maybeline. Victorian women begin to pluck their eyebrows, massage castor oil into their eyelashes, use rice powder on their face, and buff their nails. They use clear pomade on their lips, and rub beet juice on their cheeks. 1910's The first pressed powder is invented, it includes a mirror and a puff for
touch-ups. Pressed blush is invented soon after. 1920's Max Factor introduces lip gloss. The first eyelash curler, Kurlash, is invented. Mascara in cake and cream forms become popular. 1950's Movie star, Audrey Hepburn, popularizes outlined cat eyes. 1970's Cosmetics begin to combat wrinkles and cellulite. 1990's Eyeshadow and lined eyes are still popular. Present Day Cosmetics continue to grow and they continue to flourish. Now, there are hundreds of makeup brands, and thousands of products. Today, products range from eyeliner to lipstick, foundations to mascara, and many, many more. Prediction I predict that makeup will continue to grow. I think that in the future the makeup you wear will become permanent so you don't have to apply it everyday like we do now. French, Christy T. "The History Of Makeup." Blog.
