One of the first accounts of wearing red lipstick came from the Mesopotamian women (and often men) who used to adorn their lips with crushed semi-precious stones. Later, Cleopatra was known for crushing beetles and ants to get the right shade of scarlet for her lips. The phrase ‘Kiss Of Death’ due to the harmful mixture of fucus-algin, iodine, and bromine mannite that Egyptian women used to create lipstick. It was highly toxic and often led to serious illness and sometimes they died from it. Frost lipstick was created by fish scales were ground up to give lipstick its pearlescent sheen. However, it wasn’t all dead bugs and fish, Queen Elizabeth 1, who made cosmetics popular, donned a pale white face of makeup and bright crimson lips that she got from a mix of beeswax and plants. But by the 1700s British Parliament passed a law stating that marriages could be annulled if a woman wore cosmetics before her wedding as cosmetics were to be worn only by prostitutes. the same time France had an opposite feeling… upper class women were encouraged to wear cosmetics in the 1780’s, as the ‘natural look’ was to be reserved for prostitutes and working women.
