Since the ancient times, makeup has been considered significant in human life. While it may seem like a modern concept, makeup has actually existed since Ancient Egypt, with Egyptians using different powders and pigments to adorn their faces and show their symbol and status in their society. Until today, makeup is still incredibly important to society, as it dictates how one is seen by society. In a way, it provides us with some semblance of control on how the world sees us.
It also allows us a medium of expression, which gives us the opportunity to use our own faces as our canvas to show how we feel. While often a controversial topic in society today, we should look into what makes makeup such a widespread thing in our world, both then and now.
There is no record of when makeup was invented, but many postulate it was around the ancient times. Many ancient Egyptian artifacts depict its people wearing makeup such as eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lipstick. Romans also wore makeup, although it was frowned upon at the time. Chinese and Japanese people also wore makeup in the ancient times.
Today, makeup is a widespread trend, with men and women around the world using it as a tool and a medium of expression. In this society, however, there are some controversies surrounding the use of makeup, with many misogynists considering its use as “false advertising” of women. The use of makeup, however, is still popular with people today, with it helping them look, feel and act more confident, as well as helping them in various aspects such as in their occupations. Makeup companies are also growing in size and net worth, helped by society’s use and with the help of the media and the enforcement of beauty standards.
One of the most popular kinds of makeup today is lipstick. It is one of the most important because it is one of the most commonly used cosmetic products. It comes in various shades, colors, and hues. The most popular, however, is bright red because it gives off a powerful vibe and lets makeup users confidently express themselves. Shades of pink give off a more feminine vibe, and dark shades show off a little more mystery.
It is interesting to see how lipstick affects people’s perceptions of one another, and again, as with all makeup, it is used as a tool to control the way people see us and to change society’s perception of us.
Lipstick is also a popular topic in makeup communities, with many people having collections of hundreds of shades of lipsticks. It is often talked about and many brands are recommended. Many makeup users also like to create videos and posts dedicated to lipstick on their YouTube channels and blogs.
Recently, there has also been a rising trend of makeup subscription boxes. These are monthly or bimonthly subscriptions for packages of various makeup items, usually sample sizes. These subscriptions help makeup lovers try out new brands to see which ones they like, and help them save a little than if they were to buy a larger sized product. This also helps makeup companies widen their market and attract new customers.
Throughout the years, makeup has evolved in society and while its uses remain much the same, makeup lovers have found new ways to innovate and spread their love for makeup, providing a unique and fun experience for everyone to enjoy.
