Brief History of Eyelash Enhancement

Sometimes referred to as the “windows of the soul,” eyes were even a fascination with ancient Egyptians. Although eye makeup was utilized for sun protection, as well as for medicinal and spiritual reasons, Egyptians also used a wide variety of natural ingredients to decorate and bring attention to their eyes. It is no doubt that Cleopatra’s elaborate eye makeup is legendary.
Egyptians used kohl as we use mascara today – to lengthen, thicken and darken the eyelashes. Therefore, modern-day mascara is simply an extension of these ancient Egyptian customs.
