I am very interested in the origin of all of the makeup that has been created.  I think I am going to do more research regarding the origin of lipstick as well as eyeliner- I know that eyeliner began as a necessity to decrease the reflection of sun in the eyes.  But for the most part, I think eyeshadow is to emulate a depth in the eyes that occurs naturally for some people, that is eventually lost with age.  Similarly, youth is connected with flushed cheeks and lips, which is/was a sign of fertility and health.  For some, makeup could just be a matter of attraction.  But my favorite part it is the way it has evolved into an art form.  The empowerment of being who ever you would like to be- just like the style of your hair and clothing.  Along with that empowerment, however, comes harsh judgement.  Wear too much makeup? You’re insecure.  Don’t wear makeup? Why aren’t you taking pride in your appearance? Just like many issues regarding the image of women, there is no safe space to be in. You can either say eff that and dress and style yourself however you choose, or live within the realms of never being able to please a society that expects nothing and everything from you.
