Makeup is something that appears in many different cultures throughout history.  Looking closely at the different makeup trends that appear in different cultures provides a unique window into the views and beliefs of different societies with respect to what constituted “beauty”. This project observes and compares makeup trends in the Egyptian, Arab, Japanese, French and English cultures and portrays the similarities and differences that emerged between the unique trends that are observed.
