Cosmetics commonly know as make-up, are products used to enhance the appearance or fragrance of the body. Many cosmetics are designed for use of applying to the face and hair. They are generally mixtures of chemical compounds; some being derived from natural sources (such as coconut oil), and some being synthetics. Common cosmetics include lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, foundation, rouge, skin cleansers and skin lotions, shampoo, hair styling products (gel, hair spray, etc.), perfume and cologne.
Foundation is a cosmetic applied to the face to provide a smooth and glowing complexion. Foundation can come in many forms, including liquid, creme, mousse, and powder.
Makeup brands offer numerous shades so that a customer can find the foundation that best matches their skin tone
Concealer is used to mask imperfections on the face, such as pimples, dark under eye circles, and spider veins. Concealers come in various colors for different skin tones
and are generally found in the form of liquid, cream, mousse, or powder. Concealers differ from foundation as they are typically thicker and more heavily pigmented, providing more coverage
of specific imperfections.
Powder is a cosmetic applied to the face to set a foundation. It is also used to reduce shine caused by oily skin, consequently leaving a smooth matte finish on the face.
It comes packaged in a compact in pressed form. This version is applied by patting it onto the face with a sponge. It can also come as a loose powder and be applied with a brush.
Bronzer is applied to the face to provide a healthy, golden tone. In order to achieve a sun-kissed look, apply the product on areas where a tan would naturally form, such
as the forehead, along the nose, and cheekbones.
Rouge, blush, or blusher is cheek coloring to bring out the color in the cheeks and make the cheekbones appear more defined. Rouge comes in powder, cream,
and liquid forms. Different blush colors are used to compliment different skin tones.
Eyeliner comes in liquid or pencil form (often called kohl). Eyeliner is drawn along the top and bottom eyelids to define and accentuate the eyes. Eyeliner can come in
various colors; however, black eyeliner is particularly classic.
Eye-shadow is applied to the eyelids and under the eyebrows. It is available in many colors and textures, such as glitter. This cosmetic adds vibrancy to the area and makes
the eyes stand out. Eye-shadow comes in powder, pencil, mousse, and cream forms.
Mascara is applied to upper and lower eyelashes to thicken, lengthen, and darken them. Mascara comes in various colors, but black is a classic choice. Mascaras are packaged
in tubes, with wand applicators. Once applied, this cosmetic generally helps to define the eye area and make it more noticeable.
Eyebrow pencils are applied to the brows to color, shape, and define them. Many find their eyebrows to be imperfectly shaped or wispy, and by stenciling in with a pencil,
the desired look can be achieved.
Lipstick is applied to lips to highlight the mouth and give the lips color. Lipsticks come in numerous shades. Lipstick is made from oils, wax, pigments, and other
Lip gloss comes in the form of a liquid or soft solid. Lip gloss provides a shiny layer to the lips, along with a dash of color if it is a shaded product. Some lip glosses
offer moisturizing benefits, too.
Lip stain is a liquid-based cosmetic that literally stains the lips with color on application. This cosmetic is particularly hard-wearing because it is absorbed into the
Lip liner defines the edge of the lips. This not only enhances the mouth but evens out uneven lip lines and stops lipstick from bleeding should it be applied afterward. Lip
liner comes in a range of colors similar to those of lipstick and is generally packaged as a pencil or a retractable tube.
Nail polish (also known as nail varnish) is a lacquer that can be applied to the human fingernails or toenails to decorate and protect the nail plates. Nail polish started in clear, red, pink, purple, and black. Nail polish can be found in a diverse variety of colors and shades.
