Colour cosmetics ingredients
Colour cosmetics is a broad term that encompasses different categories of make-up products designed for everything from skin and cheeks to eyes and lips. Make-up has been used for centuries to enhance overall physical appearance, conceal flaws or define features. In more recent years, it has been recognised that colour cosmetic formulations can help improve mental wellbeing, by empowering consumers and boosting self-confidence.
