Our history with makeup dates back to 10,000 BC, a time when Egyptians and Mesopotamians used ground black mineral to line their eyes to reduce sun glare and eye infection which was the belief at that time. There are also speculations that eye liner was worn to protect the wearer from evil. Interesting right?
In the 1920s, the tomb of King Tut, the Egyptian Pharaoh, was discovered with well-lined eyes as was the norm at the time of his death, thus the introduction of eye liner to the Western world.
The tides have since changed and neither King Tut nor other ancient Egyptians could have predicted the evolution of makeup. Makeup has since become a global beauty norm for women. These days, thousands of fresh makeup looks are delivered straight to our devices on a daily basis, fueling the ever growing culture.
Last week, we were drawn to beauty looks that struck us at first glance. From full glam to no-makeup, makeup looks, we have assembled 11 simple but striking makeup looks we spotted on our feeds last week. The beautiful women on this list blessed the gram with show-stopping makeup looks that caught our attention and had us whispering “goals.” These looks are all the makeup inspiration you need this week.
