The 'History of Makeup' infographic follows the historical evolution of makeup trends and practices over time, starting from the first recorded use of makeup with the Ancient Egyptians.
While the methods of application and the ingredients have changed drastically through the years, the one thing that remains consistent is that women always seem to want to change their natural colorings. Strange hair dyes, eye pencils, powders and blushes have been applied, some of which turned out to be incredibly toxic and harmful to the skin. Those old techniques may seem strange today, but the current use of Botox injections and eyelash curlers could be considered appalling.
Nevertheless, the history of makeup trends is highly intriguing.
