Did you know the art of cosmetics began some time in 3500 BC? Egyptians and Ancient Romans used cosmetics regularly, but their products contained poisonous ingredients like mercury and lead.
Today, makeup has had a move towards “natural” ingredients, which is why products like “mineral” makeup has become a trend. And, while many companies did use animal testing about twenty years ago, makeup today is animal-testing free.
The most commonly used makeup, and must-haves for any cosmetic kit, include items like: foundation, concealer, brushes, mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, and blush. This seven products are necessary for a complete kit, but even this categories are broken into sub-disciplines (liquid vs powder foundation and the like).
For cosmetics, you need to have an understanding of your skin tone and texture, and what products work best with what you have. For example: if you have oily skin, find an acne-fighting liquid or mineral powder foundation; these will absorb or diminish that oily sheen. Then, depending on your eyeshape, the type of eyeliner and eyeshadow are various; eye-color, even, plays into the color choices for these items.
