Pucker up ladies, National Lipstick Day, July 29, is around the corner! Summer makeup is here!
We thought we would treat your lips to a few, fun lipstick facts and a couple of our personal Carmina Cristina Line picks.
Did you know that lipstick was invented by ancient men and women about 5.000 years ago? They transformed crushed gemstones into decorative color for their lips and eyes.
Lipstick gained its popularity during the time of Queen Elizabeth I, in the 16th century. Both, women and men of the upper class and actors wore makeup. Lipstick was made from a blend of beeswax and stain of red plants at that particular time.
One male famous person who wore lipstick was George Washington. He would wear makeup, a powdered wig and color on his lips occasionally.
But lipstick has been through so some very hot and heavy affairs also. Red lipstick or lip paint in general revealed a female prostitute in the early Greek empire. Because of that most of the women avoided makeup and especially lipstick.
Today 80% of american women wear lipstick and 800-900 million lipsticks are sold annually worldwide. European women, however, seem to love their lipsticks the most – 300 million tubes are sold in Europe alone.
First things first. Before applying one of our summer hottest hues make sure you pamper your pout with these 3 Carmina Cristina finds first.
