Tranny Egyptian to the Boardroom

Ever thought about why eyeliner?

Eyeliner is a cosmetic staple, peddled by pink-clad Mary Kay’s saleswomen worldwide, with the average women owning at least three different kinds. Here at PD, we were curious if you’d had a chance to consider what it is, where it comes from, and why the hell you devote five minutes to it each morning? Eyeliner rediscovered from the John Boy King.

Let’s start with history. In a sense eyeliner started out as the original pair of shades. Back in Ancient Egypt, eyeliner wasn’t just a female thing; in fact to go against popular belief, guyliner wasn’t invented by hairbands of the late 70’s and 80’s, and it certainly wasn’t invented by angsty Emos. The universal application of eyeliner in Egypt was done for two main reasons. First, as a form of political superstition to ward off the evil eye; you know the types of bad mojo like being enslaved, bitten by an asp, or being forced to marry a sibling. Second, eyeliner was also thought to protect the eyes and skin from the glare of the sun. Unlike Cairo circa 2006, one couldn’t just drop $5 at a market stall and pick up a new pair of knock-off Ray Bans. Nope, inside they would grab their eyeliner, or kajal (you can thank us later when don’t pull a Chris Matthews and actually win Jeopardy), to endure those long summer days.

After Rome had their way with the Egyptian people, the use of eyeliner died out for a while. Supposedly in 1920, with the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, eyeliner was rediscovered along with an evil eye or two. A more tempered approach.

A smidge too much. Now as the Egyptian flip curl is trying to make its way from tranny bars nationwide to the work place, you’ll have something to consider. The picture to the left walks the tranny rope far too closely, while the picture to the right works a bit better for 9 to 5 pursuits.
