Best Answer

Ancient Egyptians used bone and ivory as mascara applicators, and blended kohl with crocodile dung, water and honey to create the first mascara. The eyes were believed to be the windows of the soul, so they concealed them to ward off any evil spirits and bad energy. Both Egyptian men and women wore mascara and ancient drawings suggest that it was widely used for protection, celebration, war and death practices.
