Cosmetics – The History and Application of Mascara. Tips for Longer, Thicker Eyelashes

Mascara is a product with a long history, possibly dating back to ancient Egyptians who used coal dust to define their eyes. The first commercially viable mascara was created in 1921 by Eugene Rimmel, an inventor. It is known in many languages today as rimel, or mascara. This product was made easier by Thomas William in the 20th century. He mixed Vaseline with coal dust to make a thick, black mixture. This mixture was originally created by him for his sister Mabel. After breaking up with her husband, she tried to win him back by putting this mixture on her eyelashes. This made the product very popular and they later married. Thomas later named the new product Maybelline after Mabel, his sister. The mixture came in a cake shape. A wet bristle Laura Mercier tested and reviewed was used to rub it over the eyes and then applied it to them. Helena Rubinstein created a dip tube that could be used with a wand to apply the product in 1957. Since then mascara has been a very popular product.

How to best apply it?

Rimel is used for thickening and defining eyelashes. Rimel only makes your lashes appear longer. For a uniform application, the wand should first be dipped in the tube. It has a constricting rubber opening that evenly coats the bristles. The formulation will not drip or clump if you dip it. Apply the formulation starting at the eyelash base and working your way up to the tips of the hair follicle. You can apply this formulation in many ways to create different looks. There are many shades available. Black makes the eyes appear brighter, and is the preferred color of most women. The depth of deep-set eyes is less apparent with lighter shades. Blue and brown mascaras are most popular for blonde women. The eye will look wider and open if you curl your lashes before applying the formulation. To achieve a larger look, the mascara should be applied from the top or on the top of the lashes. Next, stroke upwards from the bottom to coat both the upper and lower eyelashes. A thicker look will be achieved by applying a thin coat of mascara first, letting it dry and then applying a second coat. Apply mascara to your lower eyelashes by stroking the tip of the brush along the lashes. Finish them by gently combing, separating the hair follicles, and stroking them to remove excess mascara. A fine line across the eyelids adjacent to your eyes will create a deeper look. To give the eye a wider appearance, a dovetail can also be applied to the outer corner. This can be done with either a rimel mascara (or an eyelash pencil).

Care for your eyes and cosmetics

Many microorganisms, bacteria and viruses inhabit our skin and hair follicles. These same microorganisms are introduced back into the product by applying any formula to our eyelashes. The problem is made worse when mascara is shared among friends, which can lead to even more bacteria in the product. It could be compared to sharing a tooth brush with friends and not realizing that bacteria can propagate. This can lead to the risk of spreading bacteria into the eyes, causing serious infections. This is why cosmetics should be thrown out and renewed frequently and should not be shared with others.
