In France, nearly all aristocratic women wore cosmetics.  In fact, the painting of the face was a key part of the public toilette, the informal ceremony where an aristocratic woman dressed her face and hair before an elect audience.  French aristocratic women wore thick layers of white paint, large streaks of rouge, and beauty patches (mouches).  Dauphine Marie-Josephe de Saxe with French court makeup, 1751.
