#12. As a way to make pupils appear larger and sexier, Roman women used belladonna drops.

Unfortunately, the drops were poisonous so it didn't last that long.

#14. A lot of women in the Elizabethan-era went blind from using coal tar as mascara and/or eyeliner.

Women were desperate for those sultry looking eyes.
