Beauty Addicts that we are our latest addition to the "Face Sparkles" family inspired by the 17th century. Our Face Sparkles were once named "Beauty Patches" and have gone in and of style for centuries. They came in many shapes, such as stars, circles, and squares, and their placement on the face had a specific meaning. For example, one by the mouth implied flirtatiousness, and one on the right cheek meant that the woman was married.
The beauty patch took off at a time when French men and women alike wore extensive makeup, including white powder in their hair and white paint on their faces, accented with rouge on the cheeks and bright vermillion lipstick. Religious conservatives and other cultural critics, particularly those in more pious England, frequently denounced the dishonesty of cosmetics like patches.
Despite their prevalence, some European authorities saw a corrupting power in such cosmetic enhancements. “British ruler Oliver Cromwell supposedly banned them,” Chrisman-Campbell says, “not because of sexual immorality but because they were a sign of aristocratic affectation, making them immoral in the sense of being elitist. Of course, patches came back in England under King Charles II, who grew up in France.”
Of course, we had no clue when we started this- we took our inspiration from the '60s and 70's Vogue Models. That's the thing about history, the further back you go- it just gets more interesting.
Loved by makeup artists, artists, and fun people globally! :)
