The History of Makeup in One Pretty Infographic

Makeup has been around for over 6,000 years and throughout that time, it wasn’t always the safest and healthiest for our bodies.

Not much has changed is that aspect but at least we aren’t using makeup made out of arsenic or making ourselves bleed to look pale in today’s methods.

The rather large infograph documents events such as how makeup was first used by the Egyptians, Victorian royalty plucking their eyebrows while using castor oil and even Audrey Hepburn helping to make the “Cat Eye” a trend.

Its rather fascinating to see how far we have all really come but one thing is for certain, beauty is pain and women will never stop putting themselves through torture to look fabulous.
