Beauty routines through the ages
: Ancient Egyptian women used copper and lead to create the worlds first cosmetics.
In the fifteenth century upper class women of Northern Europe would pluck their hairlines to make their foreheads seem larger and rounder.
Victorian Women would wear corsets to achieve small waists.
This made them unable to sit, have difficulty breathing, and often broke their ribs due to pressure.
Egyptian, Persian, and Roman women would put antimony sulfide drops to make their eyes glitter. The drops eventually caused blindness.
Women in Rome used burnt matches as eyeliner and eyeshadow to darken their eyes, and berries to stain their lips.
During the Elizabethan times women wanted to recreate the beauty of Queen Elizabeth.
They used white powders and red wigs to do this.
More and more women are having surgical procedures to obtain that perfection.
