Wax and kohl is a blog dedicated to reviewing make-up brands, products and application techniques to help you create your own identity.

The name dates back to ancient egypt where wax and kohl were the original components used as make up. The wax was painted on the face and body to create a pale base for skin while the kohl was used to line the eyes.

These also provided good sun protection in the damaging heat.

Cleopatra was one of the first woman to create an identity for herself using make-up and will always be remembered for her dramatic and flawless image.
