And it does not take to spend days and nights learning how to use the foundation and mascara and leave hundreds of dollars at beauty salons. When a woman has some notions on how to use the makeup to look the best, she is not afraid to experiment and then she wins.

A cosmetic bag on you

A cosmetic bag is the accessory that is always on a woman who cannot resist looking at herself in the mirror and correct her makeup any time she wants it. Major makeup tool to arm is mascara, lipstick or lip-gloss and powder. However, an ideal makeup is nothing without good quality eye shadows, perfect for your skin foundation, tender rouges, eyeliners and concealer.  Such cosmetic tricks have been invented long ago, so, the old alternative for today’s mascara was the greasy blend of Vaseline and black coal dust. Such ointment was in favor during 19th century to attract attention to eyes invented by the perfumer Eugene Rimmel. The perfumer is the founder of the legendary brand Rimmel, England. The initial components of the first Rimmel mascara is not known for sure, though the American perfumer Terry Williams created in 1913 exactly the same Coal-and-Vaseline based dye. Later on, since 1932, the mixture opend by Williams was distributed quickly and traded under the brand Maybelline, so well known and popular today. Mascara of black color is classic tool but it is not the only tool to accentuate attractiveness and beauty of eyes and color in depth. The history of makeup knows the time, namely the year 1960, when several new shots were made in makeup industry – blue color Roll-On Mascara by Revlon and Iridescent Mascara Wand by Max Factor in blue, green, gold and violet color gamut were introduced for fashionmongers.

Makeup – the look from past

Mascara with the brush to dye and comfortable tube is the only discovery of designers oftoday. The other makeup components like ruches, lipstick, eyeliners, eye shadows and evennail polish have been known to beautiful ladies from old times.

Wall paintings in Egyptian pyramids as well as digging findings showed the world that Ancient Egypt has been the real Makka for makeup and instructions how to make and use it. Men-pharaohs also tended to apply various dying agents onto face and body along with women, servants and ordinary people. The legendary pharaoh-styled makeup as black stripes to replicate the eye lines used the dye made from stibium and lead. As scientists believe such a mixture should have decorated the face of ancient Egyptians and prevent eyes and skin from infectious diseases caused by consumption of dirty contaminated water from the Nile River. In spite of the bad reputation of the lead with its toxic features among other minerals, the French scientists Pierre and Marie Curie, a husband and wife, proved that such a match of hair dye and metal made the human skin to resist various viruses. Such due was also used by the Egyptians to accentuate the brow line and eye lashes. It is interesting that in Ancient Egypt green eyes were rare for brown-skinned and brown-eyed Egyptians and thus green-eyed people were in favor and in love. A special green dye, the prototype of eye shadows, were used to apply to eyelids and they even painted their legs with it.

A mixture of the animal fat and dying agent as a lipstick was used by Egyptian beauties long before. It was mainly an ointment of red shades which added attractiveness and appeal to face of women and as the perfect lip skin care product of the past.

So, with the purpose to have skin even, the foundations based on fat components, water and dye were applied. Such cream had an only advantage – effect of makeup which did not prevent pore clogging and skin dehydration. Foundations and powder offered today by cosmetic manufacturers are based upon hypoallergenic products with herbal essences and vitamins. The structure of such products shows microscopic particles with the effect of color matching close to individual. So, Chanel manufactures lighter foundations Poudre Universal Libre, which add more shine and glitter to the skin apart from basic purposes. The face does not look like a mask but healthy and fresh with rosy on cheeks.


For the latest decades lipstick has undergone sea changes. A compact tube rooms dying pigment and mixture of wax and oils with the entire set of nourishing microelements, vitamins and moisturizing agents. A lipstick is used to keep lips fresher and colored for longer depending on resistance of some dying agents, it can easily replace rouge to cause additional care.

In spite that lip-gloss was created in the early 30s of the previous century, it got to compete with the lipstick recently. Lip-gloss found its way to hearts of millions of women due to natural look and sheer makeup trends so popular for many seasons. Apart from its designation to add sensitivity to lips, lip-gloss shows natural look of tender skin and the greasy base hides lip wrinkles successfully.

Eye shadows

Structure of eye shadows has been also changed. They used to come as powder substance to apply the upper eyelid to the brow line, especially in the epoch of hippies and disco of 80s. now the shadow palette is diluted with warmer beige, brown and pink hues with glittering effect, compact and liquid. Eye shadows can be used as rouges as well as brow liner. The news in cosmetic industry is the eye shadow with the silicon particles that saturate the colors and shades apart from being stable.

Protective cosmetic products

The cosmetic products with protective features are offered today to protect from hazardous radiation and adverse effect of environmental factors. Thus, Dessange manufactures a whole series of cosmetic products with sun screen filters as powder, rouges, lip-gloss and eye shadows.

However, modern trendy makeup is not only natural look and pastel shades. Lips are stillaccentuated, lots of gloss and glitter are applied. Though, today healthy cosmetic products are more preferred when the look is ideal and the skin improves, on the top of it. The only factor is pricing range. Not surprising that the healthier and better is the product, the more expensive it is. And this is the rule to master by any woman – we should invest in our beauty to value it later.
