I'm A Celebrity 2020: Charlotte And Rhonda Get Creative With These Jungle Beauty Hacks
No makeup? No worries!
After eagle-eyed fans pointed out that Rhonda Burchmore looked to be wearing some sort of makeup during this week's terrifying Dreadmill challenge, it's now been revealed that the 59-year-old, along with Charlotte Crosby, have been getting innovative when it came to freshening up their faces in camp.
According to the production, due to a medical issue, one campmate whose identity was not revealed was given clearance to bring in a tinted moisturiser. In the spirit of fairness, the show gave all campers permission to do the same.
In a clip for tonight's episode, Rhonda took it upon herself to educate her fellow campers on what she dubbed "beauty tips in the jungle", and honestly, it's pretty impressive given their limited resources.
"We might be in the jungle, but me and Rhonda are women who know how to make things work," Charlotte declared. "I've got the straighteners [read: two pots], Rhonda's got the eyebrow, the makeup, the charcoal."
"We're like Einstein!" she added.
As Tanya, Nikki, and Erin watched on in amazement as Charlotte used charcoal to pencil in her eyebrows, Erin -- herself a fan of beauty tools, particularly of the spoolie kind -- backed the pair's innovative approach to makeup, saying, "You've gotta do what you've gotta do!"
And while using random jungle ingredients as makeup may sound bizarre to those not as engaged in the world of beauty as this pair, using natural products actually dates way back to ancient Egyptian times when Cleopatra would ground carmine beetles to use as lipstick, while other women used clay mixed with water to color their lips.
Egyptians also were the first to use kohl -- which is still widely used in eyeliner products today -- and both men and women would use a mixture of metal, lead, copper, ash and burnt almonds around their eyes as a way to ward off the evil eye and dangerous spirits.
It wasn't just limited to the ancient Egyptians either -- ancient Greeks and Romans also painted their faces with "makeup" made with powders made of ground-up minerals and stones.
So there you go! Looks like Charlotte and Rhonda are going really old school in using some of history's first makeup methods.
