CNN Style “The Evolution of Red Lipstick”
The CNN Motion crew illuminates the surprising and socially complex 5,000-year history of red-colored lips in this beautifully illustrated explainer with art direction by Ignacio Osorio and Alexander Sears.
From CNN Style: “Throughout the centuries red lipstick has signaled many things, from its early use by the elite in ancient Egypt and by prostitutes in ancient Greece, to its status in early Hollywood as a symbol of glamor.
“In its many hues, this color on lips has been a mighty cultural weapon, charged with thousands of centuries of meaning.”
