Our 2,000-Year Obsession With Makeup (from 8/3/21) 11

Cat-eye makeup might be an Instagram staple, but its original use was en vogue in ancient Egypt. Author Rae Nudson joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the power of the powders and creams with which we adorn our skin, and how they’ve created the powerful beauty standards currently being challenged. Her book is “All Made Up: The Power and Pitfalls of Beauty Culture, from Cleopatra to Kim Kardashian.”
