Heavy Eyeliner Thanks To The Egyptians
Thanks to the exciting discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, people became obsessed with everything Egyptian in the 1920s. From the accessories, to the Egyptian-like bobs found on hieroglyphics, to the tunic-like dresses flappers loved, the interest took over the fashion and beauty world. That's partly why flappers loved to wear their eyes heavily kholed — it reminded them of the ancient Egyptians and pharaohs.
