Farah Karim-Cooper analyses contemporary tracts that address the then contentious issue of cosmetic practice and identifies a culture of cosmetics, which finds its visual identity on the Renaissance stage. She also examines cosmetic recipes and their relationship to drama as well as to the construction of early modern identities.
