How makeup has evolved over time? Use of makeup can be traced back to the ancient times. Unconventional ways have been followed to add color to the face. Kohl was used for eye makeup while red clay was used to brighten up the color of the cheeks and lips. Before mascara became popular, boot polish was used to accentuate the eyes.
How is makeup used today? Makeup is used as a beauty aid to help build up the self esteem and confidence of an individual. The importance of cosmetics has increased as many people want to stay young and attractive. Cosmetics are readily available today in the form of creams, lipstick, perfumes, eye shadows, nail polishes, hair sprays etc.
What year did makeup become popular? It wasn’t until about the 1920s that highly visible cosmetics, such as red lipstick and dark eyeliner, reentered the mainstream (at least in the Anglo-American world; not everyone had listened to Queen Victoria and eschewed makeup in the first place).
Do people wear more makeup now? Share. Overall, women are wearing less makeup than they were four years ago. In a survey of women 18+ in 2019, only 39% of women say they wear makeup daily, down from 52% in the same survey in 2015. The number of women who say they never use makeup has risen since 2015 from 15% to 23%.
