Breakin' the law....

I wonder if this law was ever enforced?

Historically there has been quite a resistance to "artificial aids" to
beauty, whether that aid come in the form of a balm, shampoo or cosmetic.
This is the only instance that I am aware of though when it was actually
ILLEGAL to adorn oneself...

I found some images of the beauties of Charles II's court~ none look especially falsified to me...

Lady Bellasys


The Duchess of Portsmouth~


The Duchess of Richmond~


and Mrs. Middleton... hmmm...
