Glitter: then and now

Oct 24, 2020

Hematite powder and other crushed sparkling minerals with which people adorned rock paintings can be considered the ancestors of glitter. Such decor has been found in Paleolithic caves. In ancient Egypt, the powder obtained from the wings of beetles was already used to shine the skin. In India BC, gemstone powder was used. Later, many civilizations used ground mica, glass and fish scales.

In the 1960s, the largest corporations of those years - Revlon, Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, and Helena Rubinstein - began to produce products with small shimmers. Such cosmetics are popular even now. You can also make it yourself from glitter for crafts. Such sparkles can be poured into lipstick and gloss, mixed with eyeshadow or blush. You can also add them to a body cream to fully shine at a party or any occasion. You can also sprinkle them on a comb and make your hairstyle like a mermaid - sparkling!
