In the distant past, cosmetics were associated with body hygiene, which contributed to the preservation of humanity.
People smeared their bodies with fat, plant juices, multi-colored clays. This protected them from cold, heat, dampness and insects. Over time, the protective function ceased to be the main one.
The beginning of the development of symbolic make-up, which laid the foundation for modern artistic make-up. Warriors painted their faces to intimidate the enemy, clowns to entertain the public.
The ancient East is considered to be the birthplace of cosmetics. Nefertiti is considered the beauty ideal of Ancient Egypt. And the fashion of Egyptian beauties to draw a dark line along the eyelid to the temple has survived to this day. Also, the ancient Egyptians used aromatic oils, used powder, blush, did manicure, pedicure, and painted their nails.
In addition, in Egypt at that time, fragrant bath oils and preparations for curling hair were used. The lips were painted with red paint obtained from a special type of molluscs, and the eyebrows and eyelashes were painted with coal powder. Already in those days there were means for depilation.
Cosmetics and medicine have been inextricably linked since ancient times. Medical papyri include cosmetic prescriptions.
The first cosmetics guide was compiled by Queen Cleopatra. It included recipes for making powder, blush, lipstick.
The fame of the secrets of the beauty of Egyptians reached Rome. Roman empresses bought mysterious products from merchants and valued them worth their weight in gold. Make-up in those days was a requirement of etiquette for both women and men.
At all times, women have tried to decorate themselves. Over the millennia, this art has developed, coming to an erotic purpose - to attract the attention of the opposite sex. The cosmetics that exist today have evolved from this very function.
