red lips, lipstick, makeup

Makeup was not exclusively a feminine phenomenon for the Egyptians. Both Egyptian men and women used lip lipstick, including bright hues like orange, blue, and magenta. Talk about setting fashion trends. The pigment was applied by Egyptians using a moist stick of wood. Rich Egyptians were often buried with at least two jars of lip colour. Thankfully, Lakme and Maybelline did not exist at the time. Cleopatra requested special lipsticks with strange chemicals. Her trademark crimson lipstick was made from crushed bugs. Flowers, fish scales, and crimson ocher were among the other elements.
