The earliest known eyeliners come from the 1st Dynasty of Egypt (about 3100-2907 BC). Tombs of this era have yielded unguent jars, and from remains of later periods it is evident that egyptian women also developed the art of decorating the eyes by applying dark green colour to the lower lid and by blackening the lashes and the upper lid with kohl, a preparation made from antimony or soot. It is likely that the Jews adopted the use of eyeliners from the Egyptians, since references to face painting appear in the Old Testament. By the middle of the 1st century AD, some types of eyeliners were widely used by the Romans, who employed kohl for darkening eyelashes and eyelids, chalk for whitening the complexion, rouge and depilatories (hair-removing preparations), and pumice for cleaning the teeth. The almost universal use of eyeliners in modern times has grown with the scientific study of the ingredients employed. This research was begun by the French in the 19th century, and led to the development of more and better eyeliners at low cost. For colouring the eyebrows and eyelashes, mascara is generally used. This is a compound of gum and black, brown, green, or blue pigment.
