ELIZABETHAN STAGE MAKEUP-- Theatrical Makeup is so fun!

The pale skin ideal during renaissance could be achieved by a number of means, the most popular being ceruse, a mixture of white lead and vinegar that was favored by the nobility and by those who could afford it. This white foundation was applied to the neck and bosom as well. Spreading lead upon one's skin caused a variety of skin problems; some authors of the time warned against it, describing how it made the skin "grey and shriveled". #makeup
