No red carpet event goes by without at least one celebrity doing the rouge lip thin.Here is my favourites.
How it all began…
The story of how range took over the world.
60 BC is a known year that the Egyptians of ancient Mesopotamia,like Cleopatra,sported red lips.They crushed semi-precious jewels and applied the powder to their lips,and,occasionally around the eyes too!
Late 1500s , red lipstick only became popular in the western world during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1,who often tattooed her lips black and wore yellow face paint as a fashion statement.Lipstick was made from a blend of beeswax and red pigments from plants.
1770 , by this time red lipstick had grown a reputation;it was thought that any woman wearing it could be involved in witchcraft.In fact,the British Parliament passed a law againts it!Queen Victoria said,it was impolite to wear any make up at all.
The red lipsticks MUST own !
