It’s such a pleasure to spend some time in your fave cosmetic brands, right? But have you ever wondered how all that makeup is made, the ingredients that are being used? No, because probably, you would never look at your makeup stash the same way again. Now, as women, we would agree that mastering the eyes is the hardest technique to be a makeup guru of yourself first of all.
Evidence of cosmetics actually dates back to 10,000 B.C. in ancient Egypt. Ointments were used to clean the skin and cover up body odors by both men and women. While women nowadays use eyeshadow as an enhancer that adds color to their upper and lower eyelids. And we must all agree that eyeshadow is a key element in a woman’s makeup kit, so let’s focus on how some of these eyeshadows are made.
ColourPop Cosmetics launched four years ago and has instantly become a cult fave amongst many bloggers. The shadows are offered in over 100 shades for every skin tone. They also come in different textures like matte, metallic, pearlized, satin, sheer, etc, and are goof-proof with easy application. Plus, they are not that expensive.
