Cosmetics, such as face powders and rouges, were known long before the time of Galen. The ancient Egyptian women were versed in the art of make-up, and the famed Cleopatra knew well how to enhance her loveliness by artificial means. Nowadays it is no longer considered coquettish and vain for woman to apply make-up. Cosmetics are considered an indispensable aid to beauty.
