In the 17th and 18th centuries, there were actually only two really important cosmetics for women as well as men and were blanc and rouge; These determine a Baroque and Rococo makeup.
Blanc, so white, for the complexion, which should see color as bright as possible. Rouge, so red that circular or triangular-shaped emphasized the cheeks and the lips.
The white primer was applied up to the neckline on her face and shoulders.
The white powder makeup was very often made on the basis of the highly toxic lead white, because this for special good opacity and equally natural finish caused a stir, even though they knew about the toxic effect.
The famous English courtesan Kitty Fisher should have died at the age of only 23 years lead poisoning.
There were virtually only metal compounds as a basis available, which are all not very healthy as white pigments. They mixed these pigments with a little oil or pomade, wear them as a paste to.
Red make-up was often made from cinnabar, vermilion contains mercury, is therefore also quite poisonous. Herbal ingredients such as saffron, wood Rosin, sandalwood and Redwood were healthier. One of the most expensive Red dyes was carmine red from the South American cochineal insects
The dyes were originally with vinegar or lemon combined, processed into powder and be scented with flower essences. They could be combined then with a pomade and rubbed or alternatively mixed with rose water or oil and applied with a brush.
The ladies of the French court wore rouge on the cheeks of the temple at eye level to almost down to the mouth.
The lips were reddened with colored distilled alcohol or vinegar. In the middle of the 18th century, you could buy but already red Pomades for the lips.
In addition to clear reds, there were instant light in the orange and pink shades, even darker red like Burgundy was worn.
Emphasized eyebrows were also important. They should be plucked Crescent and blackened with Khol, elderberry juice, burnt cork or soot from oil lamps. Some even false eyebrows made of mouse fur were worn. Leaded makeup can indeed ensure that a facial hair falls out.
The eyes were not particularly makeup, especially the lashes not. No mascara or even false eyelashes!
Mouches, Beauty spots of black silk, satin or taffeta completed the look. They were most popular in the Baroque era, remained popular but also in the Rococo. In addition to the classic point, different designs were possible such as bird, tree, Star, etc., which could also be coordinated.
Cosmetics were so popular that coiffeuses (dressing tables) were advertised and dressing room for the best light aligned to the North were built in the 1760s. in 1781, French women consumed 2 million pot with Rouge per year!
Rococo Makeup Tutorial 1
First, we prime the entire face including mouth and eyes and possibly the décolleté and shoulders with an extremely bright makeup.
I recommend makeup from the make-up artists and theater needs or camouflage. Because even the brightest normal makeup from the drugstore is not enough amount of white.
My complexion fluid is a mixture of Dermablend corrective Foundation 16 HR of Vichy in Opal (lightest sound), white Kryolan aqua color and finally white powder by Kryolan. Namely, I wanted no face like a clown or a Geisha, but a milky translucent primer.
Rococo, it should look as if one were really very pale so. Beauty ideal was not painted like a clown (apart from some few escapades at the French court in Versailles), a porcelain complexion.
In this stadium, you look then like right after a very bad flu.

I have emphasized the inner side of the eye with a light blue on Heller pen for the eyes.
Paintings, these are mostly white and you can see even any eyelashes. So to create the effect.
Then that smoky rimmed the eyes with light gray eye shadow I. This is not authentic, but white eyelids are so stressed inside more.
You can take good white eye shadow for the border. But very soft with a brush to apply any hard edges!
And no mascara. With the lashes simply don’t make that are completely unimportant in the Rococo.

Finally the black eye glue or paint on.
Use paint on the best liquid eyeliner or one black eyeliner pen, like me.
Kohl or Kajal is not black enough on the skin and dirty too easily.
You can also omit the beauty spots if it represents a Rococo Lady, you see them on paintings in Rococo increasingly difficult. On balls, they were but still popular.
And I have to say clearly that I Marie Antoinette but clearly like see as Kirsten Dunst:
