Make-up: A Glamorous History
Professional make-up artist Lisa Eldridge explores the peacocks of British history: the Georgians. The sheer glamour of the high Georgians was no accident; it is a style that owes its origins to the turbulent history of the age. The 18th century was a period of massive ostentation, matched by staggering inequality - ending in parts of Europe with bloodshed and revolution. Lisa goes to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire in search of one of the beauty icons of the day, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, and learns how she employed a full-time hairdresser who travelled everywhere with her and earned the equivalent of £100,000 a year plus expenses. She discovers how in this period of extreme wealth in Britain, the rich entered an arms race of beauty - competing to go more and more extreme to show they belonged.
