Keywords:Cosmetics, Red Carmine, Coffee Decoction
Cosmetics have become a part of everyone's grooming routine, where lipstick promotes the mood of makeup. Around 5000 years ago, the ancient Sumerian and Indus Valley men and women were possibly the first to invent and wear lipstick. Sumerians used crushed gemstones to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Egyptians like Queen Cleopatra crushed Red Carmine (bugs)to create a Red Shade.
