anyway, talking about make-up, of course in Islam excessive make-up is HARAM , like those women in jahilliyah (uncivilized) period...
so where did make-up originate? the 1st thing that crosses my mind is cleopatra :)
The origin of make-up dates back to 3100 BC, during the 1st Egyptian Dynasty. Unguent, a substance used to prevent the skin from drying up due to heat and to avoid wrinkles, was extensively used by people of both genders during that era. The women of Egypt were known to apply kohl to their eyes to give them a smoky look. Antimony or soot was usually used to make kohl.source: http://ezinearticles.com/?Where-Did-Makeup-Originate?-A-Glance-at-the-History-of-Makeup&id=3732030
what prompted me to post entry on make-up actually? coz i was buying a pressed face powder yesterday @Boots Pharmacy, coz the one that I'm currently using is about to finish (me pakai brand Silky Girl ajer)...
lipstick me pakai brand follow me sbb tak suka brand lain biasanya ada mcm aroma/bau, me dh cuba mcm2 brand dari yg murah sampailah yg mahal tp still suka kat brand follow me ajer...setia betul me pd brand ni......the amusing part is, lipstick brand follow me kalau kat KL mcm susah giller nak jumpa...tp kat supermarket the Store KB ada jer jual brand ni :)
me kat msia tak suka pakai moisturizer sbb me oily sikit jugak, but here, WAJIB pakai moisturizer sbb my facial skin jd kering and menggelupas...sbb cuaca sejuk and kering here..
and me masa bujang suka pakai mascara, tp bila dh kawin beranak pinak ni, mcm malas pulak, tp kalau special event me mesti pakai la :p and not to forget me memang suka pakai blusher kaler pink pastel brand Stage...ni antara yg wajib pakai selain bedak+lipstick...sbb rasa mcm best jer pakai blusher tu...it makes me presentable..that's how i feel :)
coming back to the title of this entry...so the answer is affirmatively YES!!!
ni pic me 1st time di make-up kan oleh make-up artis TV3 sbb masuk rancangan WHI segmen mandi susu Johnson & Johnson bersama Anita Baharum duta milkbath zmn tu la...ni citer thn 2008 daaa...tp memang feel good lah kalau make-up yg kena dgn our face..
