Our team at Faces Canada is a bit of an expert in all matters lipstickincluding the day devoted to this makeup item. And because we don't want you to feel left out of the “Happy Lipstick Day” celebration, we’ve compiled this guide to help you know everything about National Lipstick Day so you stay prepared by the 29th!

The Origin of Lipstick and the Scandal around It

There’s no exact answer to the question “when was lipstick invented?” According to archaeological finds from sites dating back to 5,000 years ago, the first people to have used lipstick were the Ancient Sumerians.

Lipstick has been a source of controversy throughout history. Considered a devilish attempt to trick men into marriage, it was banned by the British Parliament in 1770. Some groups even associated lipstick with witchcraft. Queen Victoria considered women who wore makeup dishonorable and impolite.

In the 1880s, the stage actress Sarah Bernhardt caused a huge scandal by applying lipstick in public. Interesting enough, George Washington also wore lipstick as a symbol of his support. Lipstick became a symbol of women's emancipation shortly thereafter.

In fact, Churchill refused to restrict the production of lipstick during World War II because he considered them a morale booster. It seems he shared a secret that women (and some men) have known at least for 5,000 years.

The Origin and History of National Lipstick Day

Before 2016, the origins of National Lipstick Day were unclear. Celebrations of National Lipstick Day used to occur annually, with no official declaration.

However, in 2016, Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty and a beauty blogger, was declared to be the modern-day creator of National Lipstick Day by a Proclamation from the National Day Calendar’s Registrar.
