Egg White...

 So in this session Lara got us to create a base using Egg whites and white power!! Back in the Elizabethan times they would have used egg as a "face lift"! When the egg white dries it creates an uplifting effect, meaning that the skin pulls tighter making you appear to have less wrinkles and tighter skin! It was really quite interesting using this product today as it makes you wonder what we would do with out all of the beautiful products we have today! I'm not sure how well it would go down if doctors were to start saying we should stop using all these products on our skin and go back to the old ways of creating beauty! We added in to the egg white white powder paint which gave the products an almost gritty texture, and as you can see from the pictures paled out the skin which was the sought after look in the Elizabethan era. I can't say I will be doing this again any time soon but to try this out was great fun!
