Channelizing Your Inner Cleopatra With The
Alluring Egyptian Eye Makeup
When it came to cosmetic means, the pharaonic women were always a step
ahead from the rest of the world. The path showcased by Queen of Nile
Cleopatra is abided by makeup Moghuls around the globe in modern times.
You can thus very well understand the importance of beauty amongst
Egyptian women who gave special importance to their eye makeup above
Whenever we think of Egyptian beauty, the first thought which crosses our
mind is the brilliantly extended eyeliner and dashes of blue and gold. They
deeply believed that the sole means of reaching afterlife was through a
flawless sweep of liner over their eyelids followed by mesmeric facial
makeup. Even the “Book of the Dead” revealed that the deceased needed to
purify their soul, drape white garments and intricately apply egyptian eye
makeupprior to presenting themselves at the hall of Justice following which
they could enter the empire of Osiris.
Egyptians usually went ahead with a combination of kohl and black galena
and green eye paint for creating an alluring look which is sported even by
tinsel town divas to various red carpet events of modern times. The green
color symbolised eternal paradise, joy and health which was given the
nomenclature of the “field of malachite.” Enough said, let’s now take a look
at how to proceed with Egyptian eye makeup like a pro:
A clean palette as we all know can serve as the perfect place to start
with the makeup. You will thus need to ensure that your face has been
properly cleansed so that you can start with the primer and foundation
routine. It is imperative to opt for a foundation having the right color
and consistency so that it can last for longer stretches of time.
Applying some concealer under your eyes will highlight the same.
This needs to be followed up with compact powder so that the
conjecture does not become too evident.
Next you will have to build up your brows for adding adequate
definition to your Egyptian eye makeup. Ancient Egyptians had a
tendency of keeping their eyebrows thin and precise. You can also
mirror their look by darkening your plucked eyebrows and getting the
biggest possible height for that steep arch.
Green or blue eyeshadow will now have to be splattered all over your
eyelid and right up to your brow.
Finally, you will have to line your eyes using a gel or liquid eyeliner
by taking it straight into the tear duct and dipping it down a little bit
for that Horus like look. The liner will then have to be extended from
your eye’s outer corner to the outside edge of your eyebrow. You can
draw another line a little lower for joining the two and filling up the
little triangle using some gold eyeshadow.
The ancient Egyptian attitude in regards to beauty is both multidimensional
and fascinating at the same time. Tweezers, makeup palettes and razors
discovered in the tombs of Egyptian mummies underline the very
importance of cosmetic culture amongst their civilisation. Apart from
obvious aesthetic reasons, makeup also had a spiritual significance in
ancient Egypt which was the sole purpose behind its acceptance amongst all
the sections of society irrespective of gender, age or class. Even the
Egyptian statues of goddesses and gods were laden with makeup implying at
its massive significance.
