Did white lead make-up enhance beauty at a deadly cost?
Fiona's face with and without the Boston 1833 make-up under different coloured lights
Bare Face White Light
This is a photograph of my bare washed face with no foundation. It was taken on the same day as the makeup photos on this page. This photograph was taken with a Neewer Ring Light with a white diffusing filter using a Canon G7X Mark III camera in portrait mode.
Boston 1833 Make-up White Light
This is a photo with Boston 1833 make-up applied to my face only. It was not applied to my neck. It was taken with the same camera and white diffusing filter ring light as the bare face photograph. The camera position and settings were not changed from the bare face photograph.
Bare Face Peachy Light
This is a photograph of my bare skin taken with the same camera using the Neweer ring light using an orange diffusing filter. The camera position and settings were the same as for the white light photographs.
Boston 1833 Make-up Peachy Light
This is a photograph where the Boston 1833 make-up is applied to my face only. It was taken using the same camera with the orange diffusing filter ring light. The camera position and settings were again unchanged.
