Berries= used to stain lips and cheeks
Arsenic (poison)= swallowed for a pale complexion
Belladonna (poison)= dilate pupils (it sometimes made people go blind)
Lead cream= rubbed in for a pale complexion
Sheep's wee (sheep's milk and cheese)= to bleach hair
Lead pencil= to re-draw eyebrows higher up after they shaved them off

Women in the middle ages thought that pale cheeks were very popular. Every women thought that with pale cheeks, they would be more likely to attract men. How were clothes colored? During medieval times, dyes were used to color clothes. The colors were made from plants and any natural resource they could find. Some common colors are:
Green was made from Lichen
Red dye came from a Mediterranean insect which was a bright scarlet color
Blue was made from the Dyers woad plant
Brown was made from walnut shells Was hair length important? Near the 10th century, the Catholic Church made a decree against the length of men's hair and the need to cover the women's heads with veils. They also banned the wearing of beards and mustaches among the clergymen (minster.)

Hair length of people was directly linked to their level of wealth. For example, a person with long hair was more wealthy than a person with short or a shaved head. Shoes Various types of shoes existed and were worn during medieval times:

Brodequin: Lining worn inside a shoe
Cothurnes: High boot worn by hunters
Eschapins: A small light shoe, expensive
Heuze: A boot that can be open- toed and knee or shin height Heuze: A boot that can be open-toed and knee or shin height Cothurnes: High boot worn by hunters Eschapins: A small light shoe, expensive Skylar Gandolfi Lichen Mediterranean bug Dyers woad Walnut shells Children Children's clothing was like the adults because they wore clothes depending on there gender and on wealth.
