The first archaeological evidence of eye cosmetics usage is found in Ancient Egypt around 4000 BC. The Romans and Ancient Egyptians used eye makeup containing mercury. Usually, the goal of wearing makeup is to make the wearer more attractive. For most women that involves simulating the appearance of health and of the smooth, unblemished skin of youth.
Pupa eye shadow and Pupa mascara are worn to make the eyes appear larger, and thus more youthful and innocent. Pupa eye makeup is worn to mimic the appearance of young skin flushed after exercise. Pupa lipstick can make lips look more like the lips of a younger person, with thinner skin.
One sociological theory of Pupa eye makeup (among other things) claims that the role of modern cosmetics is not just to simulate youthfulness and health, but also, to an extent, sexual arousal. Wide eyes, flushed cheeks, and red lips can all be indicators of arousal, although most women would probably call this style of makeup "looking sexy."
A critique of cosmetics (by Judy Grahn, among other feminists) contends that
Pupa eye shadow mimics on a woman's face the effects of a beating. Blackened eyes, bruised cheeks, and bloody lips are another way of viewing "looking sexy."
Pupa eye makeup may also be used to make one self look older. Young girls often try this at a young age with their mother's makeup. As they get older they realize that it is more to their advantage to look younger and sexier. Halloween is a time when any one young or old, male or female may use Pupa eye shadow
or Pupa mascara and not feel out of place. The various forms of Pupa eye makeup include Pupa mascara used to enhance the eyelashes, Pupa eye shadow, used to colour and emphasize the eyelids (larger eyes compared to face is a sign of youth). Pupa eye makeup can also be described by the form of the product, as well as the area for application. Pupa eye shadow
and Pupa mascara can be liquid or cream emulsions; powders, both pressed and loose; dispersions; and anhydrous creams or sticks.
Eyelashes protect the eye from debris and perform some of the same function as whiskers do on a cat or a mouse in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that an object (such as an insect or dust mote) is near the eye (which is then closed reflexively).Long eyelashes are considered a sign of femininity in most if not all cultures, and so their appearance is enhanced with Pupa mascara. The ingredients of Pupa eye makeup may also surprise those who use them.
Pupa eye shadow, for example, can contain the shimmery substance of fish scales called "pearl essence". Pearl essence is obtained primarily from herring and is one of many by-products of large-scale commercial fish processing. The red color of some Pupa mascara is from the dye carmine, made from the crushed bodies of the cochineal insect. This is extremely expensive and is used as rarely as possible. Pure carmine dye is usually more expensive than gold.
Equipping oneself with Pupa eye makeup arsenal, consisting of pupa eye shadow and pupa mascara is a very good start and provided that you apply it correctly success will follow.
Pupa eye makeup products are manufactured to assure ultimately long-lasting freshness and are not supposed to fade in course of the day.
