Makeup cosmetics are substances that are used to enhance or alter the appearance of a person's body and face. These products are usually designed in such a way that they provide easy application to the skin and hair. These products are generally the right blend and mixtures of chemical compounds. The chemicals are derived from natural sources like coconut oil and synthetics. The makeup cosmetics include lipstick, mascara, foundation, eyeshadow, rouge, skin cleansers, lotions, shampoo and hair styling products. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates cosmetics and defines the products to be intended for application on the human body for cleansing and beautifying the appearance of a person without affecting the body's structure or functions.
Makeup has a history of Egyptian men and women using cosmetics to enhance their appearances especially the eyeliner and eyeshadows. They traditionally crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces and bodies. The modern cosmetics are intended to be applied externally. If a part of cosmetics enters the eyes, it is recommended to wash them away immediately with running fresh water. Makeup refers primarily to products containing color pigments. It is recommended that the cosmetics used on the face and eye area are usually applied with a brush or makeup sponges. The products come in formulas to suit individual skin tones and are sometimes meant to reduce the appearance of pore size. However, the prolonged wear of makeup can cause irritation. It is advised to use makeup remover to completely wash away all the makeup from your face before going to the bed. It is also recommended that primers are applied before foundation or eyeshadows depending on where the makeup is going to be applied.
Beauty Makeup products also include lipstick, lip stain, lip conditioner, lip primer, lip gloss, lip liner, lip plumper, lip balm, lip boosters, and lip butter. Lipsticks are intended to add color and texture to the lips. These products are also being scented and flavored with moisturizing agents, tint, and sunblocks. Concealers are made to cover the imperfections of the skin, often used for extra coverage on blemishes, under eye circles, acne scars etc. Foundation is yet another product that provides a longer lasting and detailed coverage while creating a radiant fresh look. It can also be used for contouring the nose, cheekbones, and jawlines. It gives a more defined look and is used to smoothen the uneven skin surface.
Face powder is another product that gives a matte finish while concealing the blemishes while baking the foundation to make it stay longer. Rouge, blush, or blusher are the cheek colors applied to make the cheekbones appear more defined. Contour powders and creams help give the illusion of a slimmer face and modify face shapes as you desire. A highlight is used to draw attention to the high points while brightening the skin and adding glow. A bronzer is another product that helps in giving a natural look while enhancing the color of the face with a shimmery look. Other products like mascara, eyeshadow, eyeliner, eyebrow pencils, creams, waxes, gels, and powders are used as add-ons.
