  Ancient Beauty Secrets Still Trending Today (2-2)

  From highlighting to braiding to a classic cat eye

  Elisa Roland, Reader's Digest, April 2017

  Trying to get the perfect cat-eye look dates all the ways back to ancient Egypt where kohl was made from heavy metals with high concentrations of lead salts. Though lead can be dangerous, the Egyptians processed and filtered the materials for up to 30 days before creating the eyeliner prototype. The low levels of lead left over actually protected their eyes from the sun and boosted the skin's ability to fight off infections. But just like today, not everyone was a fan of the cat eye trend. "Following the makeup trend of her day, Rahab, the legendary Canaanite prostitute, probably adopted the dramatic Egyptian style of outlining her eyes," writes Weisberger. "The eye makeup, known today by the Arabic name of kohl, was a pasty black substance similar to modern mascara. For the Israelites, the image of the heavily painted kohl eye was so powerful that it was denounced in the Bible as a symbol of immorality and ungodliness (See Jeremiah 4:30)."
