 Egg Faces

                                                                           Who do you know that could "eat a whole head, eyes and nose too!?!

We have seen many, many "egg faces".  Below is just a tiny amount of them.  HOWEVER,  have you EVER seen an egg face that you could just pick up and eat?  Check out some of the faces that I have found.  Sure is an interesting area of "creative art".  I do feel that the top one, is about the best I have seen, with all natural, consumable contents!!  How fun!

                                  

 

       

 

                                       

Here is a story (history too?) about "face painting"! 

Making faces :: my life as an easter egg

 

sometimes, the answer to "what colour should i wear today?" is "all of them".
 

 
after all, we live in the era of plenty as far as wearable colours are concerned. when it first occurred to ancient civilisations to rub stuff around their eyes to see what happened, their options were pretty limited. the egyptians, men and women, rich and poor, lined their eyes with kohl for effect, but also for the same reason baseball players do- they noticed that it cut down on the glare. for the romans, who developed a slightly wider palette, it was an aesthetic choice enjoyed by the upper classes and, once again, it wasn't gender specific.

 
what's odd is that most histories of eye makeup end there, or jump from there to the 1950s when beauty pioneer helena rubenstein started marketing blue shadow to young women apparently unaware of the fact that blue shadow can be trickier to wear than a lot of colours because of its tendency to emphasise dark under-eye circles. it's as if eye shadows were unchanged from the time of the roman empire to the time of doris day.

 
possibly, of course, it's that a few bad experiences led women to stop agreeing when their chemist asked them to smear something on their eyelids to see how it looked. you only have two shots to get that wrong before you're well and truly screwed. but for whatever reason, there seems to have been little improvement in the basic formula for a surprisingly long period of time. not that women weren't wearing eye makeup, of course, there just wasn't much in the way of colour.

 
SEE HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED...

 
now, we've conquered every possible colour. there are shadows in all the shades of the rainbow and beyond. there are shades that look as matte as crate paper and some that shine like liquid metal. there are some that glitter and some that change colour depending on the light. and they work best when you combine them in different ways, to accent different features and subtly shift the focus of the onlooker in the direction you want.

 
the multi-coloured easter eggs so prominent at this time of year have a likewise muddled history that seems to begin with ancient zoroastrians [based in modern-day iran], who painted eggs for their new year's celebration, which took place at the vernal equinox [where it logically should be -ed.]. somehow, and we're not a hundred percent clear on this, this clearly pagan tradition managed to make the leap [kind of like a bunny...] to the christian world and persists in all its multi-coloured glory to the present time.
