    Roman cosmetic secrets revealed

    2004

    "Bristol University scientists analysed the cream and found it to be made from animal fat, starch and tin oxide. They tell Nature magazine that their own version of this second century AD cosmetic leaves a smooth, powdery texture when rubbed into the skin. The plainly decorated pot was an extraordinary find. Just six cm across and five cm high, it was discovered in a drain at the site of a temple complex now known as Tabard Square. Marks left by the last fingers to use the cream pot were still visible on the lid."

    The Female Eunuch

    1971 - Paladin - London

    "When the life of the party wants to express the idea of a pretty woman in mime, he undulates his two hands in the air and leers expressively. The notion of a curve is so closely connected to sexual semantics that some people cannot resist sniggering at road signs. The most popular image of the female despite the exigencies of the clothing trade is all boobs and buttocks, a hallucinating sequence of parabolae and bulges."

    "In practice, these cherished ideas are usually challenged whenever we travel abroad. A resident of Southern England, for example, may need only to cross the Channel to France to find toilets which seem not only dirty, but constructed in a fashion unpleasant to use ... and to encounter customs that appear strange, perhaps even obsessive."

    Society's Influence on the Perception of Beauty

    2013 - University of Essex - Essex

    We live in a world where we are constantly under scrutiny about our appearance. Women and girls are persistently striving to become beautiful and will use a variety of different mediums to achieve this. Beauty can be defined as “a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight” (Oxford Dictionaries, 2013). Beauty can be interpreted in many different ways across time and culture but this subjective concept has been adjusted so women feel like beauty is objective. For example, the media has influence on society's perception of beauty through magazines, tabloid newspapers and television; resulting in women feeling insecure about their appearance

    Women in Ancient Rome: Beauty

    2015

    "Livia employed an enormous staff: --Hair and make-up artists. Experts today think the more elaborate Roman hairstyles were held in place with rope. For richer patrons, gold filaments were woven into the hairnet. The hairstyles lasted for days. --Dressers (in Latin "ornatices") -- perhaps the fashion stylists of the day. --Wool workers ("lanipendi") and sewers ("sarcinatrices"), who made the clothes. "Keepers of her wardrobe" cleaned, folded, and mended them. Since Livia was also a priestess, there had to be a separate specialist to look after her priestly garments and accessories. --A specialized shoemaker ("calicator") for her shoes. --A goldsmith ("aurifes"), a gilder ("inaurator"), and a pearl setter ("margaritarius") for her jewelry. --And of course a masseuse. The modest look was indeed expensive!"
