Eyelashes have a primary purpose of protecting the eye. When dirt, an object or an insect get to close to the eye, the bottom eyelashes are the sensor that cause the eyelid to close in self defense. Although they still have the same purpose today, the appearance of defined, longer and darker eyelashes has enhanced the eyelashes primary purpose of safety and brought focus to beauty of eyelashes.
Hnrol Mascara is a makeup product that is applied directly onto the bottom eyelashes. It is used primarily to give the eyelashes the appearance of being longer, darker and thicker. For women with small eyes or almost invisible eyelashes, mascara will make the eyes appear more open and much larger. Mascara was first used by ancient Egyptians. The mascara used by the Egyptians had only one main ingredient, coal dust. After many trials, a product suitable to sell was invented by Mr. Eugene Rimmel. Long after Rimmel, a man named Thomas William improved the product. The new mascara had two ingredients, coal dust and Vaseline. It came in a cake form and the user needed a bristle brush and water. The application involved wetting the brush and rubbing it on the cake of mascara. The user would then ‘paint’ it onto the eyelashes. It served its purpose and customers liked it. In the fifties the modern form of applicator was invented making application much easier.
