The earliest traces of makeup and cosmetics can be traced as far back as 4000 BC in Egypt. In ancient Rome, people regularly bathed to keep themselves clean and Romans developed a special formula to hide skin blemishes as well. In the early history of cosmetics, dangerous elements such as mercury, arsenic, and lead were used as they were believed to give enhanced beauty. Now decades later the whole industry has transformed totally focusing more on organic and herbal products.
Today women are successful entrepreneurs running a successful business from their homes.
