Lipstick Day is an exciting day where makeup fans celebrate this holy-grail product. The evolution of lipstick started 5,000 years ago in Mesopotamia where women would crush up gemstones mixed with beeswax to create the product. In Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra extracted color from crushed insects in order to create her signature stunning red shade. Also, in the Roman Empire, men wore lipstick to signify class; this beautiful, self-esteem boosting product is for everyone to rock!
Lipstick Day was officiated in 2016 when Huda Katton, the creator of makeup line Huda Beauty, was proclaimed as the modern day founder of this national date.
Many makeup brands also use this holiday as a reason to launch new lipstick products or to do massive giveaways for customers (like how M.A.C gives out free lipsticks at their stores on this day).
Fun ways to Celebrate
Celebrating Lipstick Day is simple; all you need to do is sport your favorite lipstick shade, or hunt down the best deals that makeup brands are offering for this holiday.
