Interesting facts about Makeup(cosmetics)

Hiya girlies, I was doing some research and I found out some very interesting facts about cosmetics and I wanted to share them with you!

1. Women used to pinch their cheeks to give themselves rosy cheeks before blush was invented.

2. Now this one will want to make you check the ingredients on your smimmery products!                           Ground fish scales are sometimes used to add shimmer to eye shadows and lipsticks 

3. In 3000 B.C. People wanted to be pale they had to “bleed themselves” by using leaches or cutting into a vein to achieve this look.

4. The first nail polish was invented in China in 3000 B.C. by mixing egg whites, beeswax, gum and colored powder

5.  The most common injury caused by make-up is scratching the eye with a mascara wand.

6.  In 1952, roll on deodorant was inspired by the ball-point pen.

I hope you found these facts interesting. I certainly did! 

That’s all for now girlies, Adiós ❤
