Men Were The Primary Users Of Makeup


Later, in around 4000 BC, Egyptian kings and pharaohs wore heavy eye makeup. King Tutankhamen and the men during his reign used a green shade, since they believed green invoked the sun and sky gods.

The Japanese and Chinese men in 3000 BC wore nail polish to signify their higher social status. The ingredients they used included eggs, gelatin, and gum arabic. You could say they were quite ingenious. Even more extreme? The Romans painted the tops of their heads (not just their faces) to conceal premature baldness. They’d also powder up their faces to lighten their complexions. It made sense because those men needed to make sure they looked one step above the average person. Image was everything. Sound familiar?
