The history behind National Lipstick Day:

Singaporeans were always enthusiastic about make-up products and events and were active participants of National Lipstick Day. 

There were many controversies attached with lipsticks back in 1770. It was earlier banned being named as a devilish attempt that provokes men for marriages. Some also linked it with witchcraft. It was also assumed that lipstick contained poisonous materials. After all these facts were dismissed, it was later linked with mood changes and scenery. Lipstick was both appreciated and banned in the early ages, but it is valued now in recent times. It is also thought to boost one’s morale positively. 

Earlier, there was not a fixed date for it; it occurred randomly on an annual basis. But from 2016, Huda Beauty Owner, the blogger, international Businesswoman, and Entrepreneur, was represented as the modern-day founder of the occasion. After that, it is celebrated on 29th July Yearly.  

How is National Lipstick Day celebrated?

It doesn’t require any significant event; all the people have to do is wear their best lipstick and post using the hashtag #NationalLipstickDay on their social media accounts.
