Proof of the human fascination with facial beauty has been found and to be dated as old as documented civilization itself. As early as 10,000 B.C., color palettes have been used in Egypt in the production of face and eye powders. Makeup was in full bloom in all of early Egyptian civilization; rouge and lip ‘ointments’ were essentials, particularly for the privileged few, although slaves even had the luxury of wearing eye makeup. Eyelash and eyebrow enhancers were used widely, thereby lending the ancient Egyptian the physical stereotype of that dark, painted-on look. The succeeding societies paled in comparison to what the Egyptians achieved in terms of cosmetics.

Today, the basics remain more or less the same as with the past, and hopefully the following tips would guide you in getting the most out of these rudimentary few cosmetic necessities.
