In 500 AD the churches banned the use of lipstick and reasoned that use of lipstick was the challenge to the God


In this era even though churches still didn’t appreciate the use of lipstick but still Queen Elisabeth used to wear red lipstick made up of poisonous white lead and the red dye which later on became the reason of her death. But in 1800AD Queen Victoria believed lipsticks were impolite but still some women used it.


In 1920 the actress Clara bow made the use of red lipstick popular with a defined cupid’s bow. In 19230 the Vogue claimed that lipstick is the very important cosmetic for women and by 1950 lipstick was fashionable.
