Appearance and beauty have always been a major aspect of women’s lives, because appearance reflects your present-ability, regardless of the era, century or decade. Up to mid-19th century, trends and styles have been so slow and had less importance, but in the 20th century, trends and styles grew up faster and faster from decade to decade. The changes in cosmetology, dressing style, accessories and hairstyles are drastically different when compared to the ancient times.
These changes provide awareness into the social roles of women, as well as how women view themselves. The history of cosmetology reveals about physical beauty and physical beauty only.

A kind of soft rock known, as Red Ochre is used by Egyptians by crushing the rock and was used as a pigment for red and luscious lips. Kohl is used as Kajal and eye-liner to the eyes. In the 19th century, makeup products were very poisonousness, they made up of arsenic acids or lead, which kills your brain cells and causes damage to your skin. Which is why, you’re viewed as “bad” or “impure” if you wore so much makeup.

They apply that to lips and cheeks, but it is a very deadly combination, which causes serious diseases.
