I found this one:
http://www.abc.net.au/science/news/stories/s18834.htm
I've also heard that eyeshadow was made of semi-precious stones like turquoise or malachite.

Yay! Thank you very much! I hate science projects. My chemistry teacher never tells us anything, and we learn squat. I didn't know about the project or when it was due until the 5th which is one week before it's due!!!

Hey, would anyone have a good phrase/line/word in Ancient Egyptian that would be a good title for a science project on Egyptian Cosmetics...my teacher said we couldn't do the usual..."How to" titles and wants me to come up with something creative...

One title could be: "The Making of Ancient Cosmetics" or "The 411 on Making Ancient Cosmetics" or "The process of making Ancient Cosmetics"
Hope these help!

How about a title such as, "The look of yester-year, and how to achieve it today."

I heard that eye-makeup was also made of crushed ant eggs. I know. It's gross.

Bristol University's Archaeology team actually discovered a pot of Roman face cream at a site, and then used the remainder to recreate it. It was comprised of boiled fat (to make it greasy), plant sap and lead oxide distillate. Sounds great!
