The shades of red, pink and purple were always considered attractive to the human eye and pigments like red earth (iron oxide) were among first used for purpose of face adornment. I will present a survey of historical cosmetics in shades of red, purple and pink, from Bronze Age to 16th century. We will visit ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Rome and its territories, China, and we will end up our journey in Renaissance Europe. This class will not be recorded.
