‘For this makeup look, we took inspiration from the ancient indigenous European peoples called the Picts. They inhabited the area of what is now northern Scotland from late antiquity to around 900AD. Their name comes from the Latin word “Picti” and means “painted or tattooed people.”
The Picts were regarded as fierce warriors by the Romans, fighting off every attempt of conquest even though their military technology was far inferior to that of Rome. The Romans were so mesmerized by these peoples that Julius Caesar wrote of them: “they dye themselves with woad, which produces a blue color, and makes their appearance in battle more terrible. They wear long hair, and shave every part of the body save the head and the upper lip.”
According to Roman sources, the only clothing the Picts wore were iron chains around their waists and throats. The Romans believed that they wore no clothes to show off more of their detailed body art.’
