The History of Women's Makeup

The first historical traces of makeup on record can be found in cave paintings of Paleolithic women with portions of their body colored in reddish-brown tones. In ancient Egypt, women wore makeup as a marker of wealth believed to appeal to the gods. Queen Victoria declared makeup to be vulgar!

For some women, makeup is something that should always be applied before leaving the house, and for others, it's unnecessary and offensive. The next time you pop on your magnetic mink fake eyelash strips, think about all that women have gone through in order to give you the freedom to choose.
