Did you know......

Cleopatra originally use to pinch the apples of her cheeks to give a rosey red tone. A flush of the cheeks was seen to be a sign of youth and freshness as well as a sign of sensuality and fertility. 
The Ancient Egyptians were probably one of the first groups in History to adopt the use of blush into their beauty regimes.  Blush was used by both men and women.  Fat would be mixed with ground ochre, crushed berries or blood from the cochineal beetle (Carmine) to add a pop of red to cheeks.

Just like fashion today, the middle ages saw blush fall out of favour, as workers who spent their days out in the sunshine tending to fields and ladies of the night were perceived to have red cheeks. The connotations of flushed cheeks were so unpopular that leeches were even used to remove blood from the face, whilst egg whites were used to lighten the skin.
