Lipstick was considered an essential item for female nurses in the armed forces during the Second World War, both to remind women that they were ladies first and military second, and because it might have a calming effect on the male soldiers.

Weird Beauty Fact Of The Day!

Despite being called the "Golden Age of Spain," having a tan was a serious beauty faux pas back then. In an effort to maintain a porcelain complexion, young women would eat clay, even though it often caused anemia or chlorosis. In the late 18th century, members of The French Court such as Marie Antoinette also obsessed over having flawless alabaster skin. They faked it with thick layers of white powder (made out of everything from white lead and talc to pulverized bone) combined with wax, whale blubber, or vegetable oil to give the face makeup a greasy consistency that adhered to the skin.

Weird Beauty Fact Of The Day!

Everyone loves long hair, but not as much as men in the Heian Period. Japanese women were judged on the length of their hair, with anyone lucky enough to have hair two foot longer then their waist being deemed the most attractive. Extensions, anyone?

Weird Beauty Fact Of The Day!

Ancient Greek women have a solution for every problem. Acne? Just apply curdled milk. Freckles? Cucumber juice. Wrinkles? Crocodile fat should sort them out. I’m so glad we have anti wrinkle creams now!

Weird Beauty Fact Of The Day!

The term for a makeup artist in Egyptian hieroglyphic is derived from the root "sesh," which means, "to write, to engrave." Makeup application was taken pretty seriously back then: the same accuracy was needed to paint lips as to write out a text.

How To: Tinted Moisturizer

In summer I'm not a fan of heavy foundations so my go to product is tinted moisturizer! Unfortunately they can get a little pricey so I make my own! Here's how you do it!

Materials Needed:
Facial Moisturizer (preferably with SPF)
Any Foundation (Try a shade a little darker than normal)
Paper plate

1) Take your moisturizer and foundation and put an equal amount of each on the plate.

2) Using the toothpick mix the 2 together. 

3) Continue to mix them until the tinted moisturizer is the right color. Add more of either ingredient if needed.

4) Once you've mixed it take the toothpick and scrape it into your container.

All Done! You don't need many materials or time and you save money! An optional step is to make a cute label for it (:. Good Luck!
