Lip colouring started to gain some popularity in 16th century England. During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I bright red lips and a stark white face became fashionable. By that time, lipstick was made from a blend of beeswax and red stains from plants. Only upper class women and male actors wore makeup. In 1770 a British law was proposed to the Parliament that a marriage should be annulled if the woman wore cosmetics before her wedding day. Throughout most of the 19th century the obvious use of cosmetics was not considered acceptable in Britain for respectable women, and it was associated with marginalized groups such as actresses and prostitutes. It was considered brazen and uncivilized to wear makeup. In the 1850s, reports were being published cautioning women of the dangers of using lead and vermillion in cosmetics applied to the face. By the end of the 19th century, Guerlain, a French cosmetic company, begin to produce lipstick. The first commercial lipstick had been invented in 1884, by perfumers in Paris, France. It was enclosed in silk paper and made from deer tallow, castor oil, and beeswax. Before then, lipstick had been created at home. Complete receipt of the undisguised use of cosmetics in England appears to have arrived for the fashionable Londoner at least by 1921.
