What Are Your Makeup Products Made Of?
What chemicals are in skin care products?

Have you ever wondered what are you really putting on your face when you make up? Thankfully, you are not living 500 years ago. In the 15th century, toxic substances such as lead were used on perfectly smooth and proper skin. You can imagine how it worked. Fortunately, we have learned a lot about chemistry since the 16th century.

Whether you want to darken your complexion or soften your skin, most makeup applications depend on their chemical formula. 

Lipsticks are one of the most popular cosmetics, whether you use them yourself or not. However, only about five ingredients can be used to create the color you need. Lipstick is a combination of wax and oil with a slight odor and color. Wax accounts for the structure of lipstick and combines all other ingredients. Lipsticks can use different types of wax, but most often use lime or Carnauba wax from the Carnauba tree.

Castor oil, mineral oil, and even olive oil are usually mixed with wax and spread. Then there are five final scents and colors, most of which were created in the lab. However, some colors may come from other natural sources. For example, an insect called ccochineal (pronounced “coke-in-neel”) produces a chemical called carminic acid. It is used for some red dyes. Isn't it better to use insect paint to make it look better?

Even if your lipstick is not strong, you may prefer liquid lipstick.The stains on the lips are applied with the same ingredients as the same hard lipstick, but they last longer during the day and can reduce scratches.

When using hard lipsticks, the colors are blended with waxes and oils, which can easily darken or fade, much like putting your lips in a coffee cup. But with lip gloss, the color dissolves in water, gels and alcohol. When applied, the alcohol evaporates and the color of the lips dries instantly. Therefore, the color does not fade even on a relaxing day. However, although the stains on the lips last longer, they contain alcohol, which usually does not have the moisture of lipstick, which makes the skin easier to dry.

Eyeliner is another essential ingredient in makeup.

As with lip makeup, you can choose from a variety of options, from sticks and pencils to liquids and creams. However, most eye columns are made up of the same three components. A complex series of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and in some cases nitrogen, whose structure helps the eyes spread evenly over the thin layers of the skin. It helps to strengthen the eyeliner, but it relies on the formula to keep it firm and helps keep the eyes sharp when you get there.

Like lipstick, gutters are usually wax or clay. Finally, there are colors and shades. With eyeliner you can find compounds of iron oxide, iron, oxygen, black and brown. However, you can find bright compounds such as green chromium trioxide (two chromium atoms and three oxygen atoms) and the bright blue Ultramine, which is composed of aluminum, sodium, oxygen, and silicon.

Using a pencil or stick makes it difficult to combine textures. The cream is not very moisturizing, so the mixture is thin and can be applied with a brush. The principle of action of liquid eyeliner is similar to lip gloss. The paint dissolves in water and alcohol and dries after use.Therefore, like lip gloss, liquid eyeliner will last longer.

When you buy a waterproof eyeliner, it contains a silica derivative called Dimethicone Copolyol. The conditioned silica is two oxygen atoms bonded to a silicon atom, but Dimethicone Copolyol is more complex and is composed of many groups of silicon, hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen. Due to its complex structure, its water resistance is much better than regular silica. This chemical is also commonly found in shampoos and conditioners that can keep your hair shining.

If you want to add color to your look, try using eyeshadow.

Most eyeshadows usually start in the same way. First, there is the foundation-talc is usually a mineral composed of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen.After that, it is usually helpful to mix a chemical called Odysseus to get a powder for blindfolding. The most common additives are zinc or magnesium derivatives, which absorb oil to purify water and keep eyeshadow in place. Silica or nylon may be added to soften the eyeshadow, or zinc starter (salt) may be added when not exposed to water (sweat, rain, etc.). Preservatives such as ethylene glycol (a series of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen) are also added to prevent the growth of bacteria in the mixture.

If you use cream eyeshadow instead of eyeshadow powder, you may be using castor oil or grease for creamy and easy application. The cream-colored eye green dries directly on the skin and can prolong the eyeshadow. In ancient Greece, eyeshadow was painted in essence-like colors such as green malachite and blue lapis lazuli. Fortunately, modern paints are usually made from cheap materials in the lab. Some colors are similar to those found on lipsticks and eyeliners, but you may see white titanium oxide or manganese purple on the palette.

Without mascara, the eye makeup debate would be incomplete.

You can apply false eyelashes if you want to lengthen, trim, or lengthen the lashes. Some carbohydrates already contain guanine, a non-flammable chemical used to lighten the complexion.

Today, chemicals work in place of bismuth oxychloride, oxygen and chlorine. In addition, mascara is a combination of complex polymers, preservatives and thickeners that dissolve in solutions such as oil and water. This polymer has long chains that form a membrane that covers the secretions. The skin (wax, oil, etc.) can prevent excessive flow.

Depending on the brand you buy, you can choose mascara prepared without water or a mascara made of a mixture of oil and water. It may not be waterproof, but the combination of water and oil can be easily removed at the end of the day. In general, the lower the false moisture level, the higher the water resistance. So if you're preparing for a tragic movie or a particularly exciting day, you can avoid the problem by checking the components of the eyelash.

We've talked a lot about textures to make your face look brighter, but what about this combination? Well, that's why there are buildings and secret guards. If you want to lay out your makeup with a cover, it's important to make your skin look as perfect as possible. Most of these products, including solids, liquids, and even sprays, are available, but they all start in the same way. Foundations and concealers usually contain ingredients, moisturizers, dyes and fillers

For solids, the base is oil and wax, while liquids and sprays contain oil and water. Matchmakers depend on your particular brand, but fillers are used to spread everything evenly and keep it easy. The most common filler is the vine. This is the same mineral used in eyeshadow. Well, if your foundation looks hot or dirty, this may the reason, or your skin may be abnormally oily or dry. However, if the formula you use is too thick to interact with other products such as moisturizers and primers, it dries very quickly.

Due to its natural complexity, the colors that can be found in the base substance include dark brown, red, yellow, and black colors of titanium dioxide and iron oxide. In addition to the basic ingredients, some liquid foundations may contain salicylic acid to combat acne. Cornstarch can control skin damage.

We've spent a lot of time preparing to keep the foundation and secrets, so it's good to know that it lasts all day. It is a raw material for pressed flour. It's like an eyeshadow on the entire face. Combine the same iron oxide and titanium dioxide used in the foundation into a talc-like base. You can then apply it to the skin with a brush or powder to reduce complexity and keep the foundation and cover longer.

Now, did you notice that some coagulants sometimes look dull when sticky? It depends on the type of powder you are taking. You can buy a compact solid powder or road powder. Even if the main components are the same, there is one big difference. Loose powder has small particles and can illuminate the surface. However, to make a compact powder, you need to add wax and silica to keep it firm.

This also means that the particles will be larger. This powder is more fragile than soft powder, so if you are not careful it will obviously crack out. This means that colorful makeup is not only eye-catching, but also has all the basic makeup fillers, solutions and colors that are visible.

When it comes to makeup, we add a variety of accessories to our shopping bag. But at least now you have a better understanding of your facial expressions and the use of these compounds.
