National Lipstick Day

National Lipstick Day is a great excuse to treat yourself to a new shade of lipstick. Just think, this cosmetic has existed for thousands of years. It contains hundreds of components, and our ancestors even added crushed gems and beetles to it. And all for the sake of one goal – to give the lips a seductive shade. Women are so accustomed to using lipstick that many feel improperly dressed without lipstick.

The History

It turns out lipstick has an interesting history. The ancient Sumerians were the first to use it; they added crushed gems to the coloring composition, and they also adorned their faces with it. Cosmetics were also common in ancient China, where they added beeswax for a soft texture. In ancient Greece, courtesans applied lipstick and berry juice cosmetics.

In England in the 16th century, a pale female face with bright scarlet lips was considered the standard of beauty – this is how fashionistas reproduced the image of Queen Elizabeth. Only in the 19th century was lipstick produced on an industrial scale. The first production line was launched in France. In the first half of the 20th century, the number of shades of lipstick increased dramatically.
