History of makeup – Chapter 1: Eyeliner

After my personal ode to flower power, I realised that there is more where that came from. It’s time to make a few historical trips to the makeup world. Which means: another blog serie! These historical makeup trips include a little bit of personal history and a lot of worldwide history. Let’s hit it off with the first episode: eyeliner / kohl.

A not so typical cup of coffee

I am not a morning person, but a real night owl. People who know me, will nod approvingly and those who follow me on social media have seen my midnight inspiration brainwaves. So the problem for a night person is not the fact that they meet their bed too late on a daily basis. No, in fact there is more than one problem: the morning starts too soon, there are too less hours in a day and inspiration waves always come between 11PM and 1AM. Night persons will totally understand these excuses strong and valid arguments.

How would life be if I would have lived 100 years, 80 years  or 60 years ago? Do you ever wonder about that? Well, I do. Nowadays, while living your daily life random thoughts appear. From “Where’s the wifi” to “Why does this train has a 5-minute delay”. Or from “It’s Netflix time, do not disturb me” to “Where did the weekend go?” A few days ago I started thinking about those random thoughts and the past.

Would I be a flapper in the 1920s? How many gloves would I have in the 1950s? Would I master that Twist in the 1960s? Questions, questions. Of course I will never know the …
