About

Presented by the Korean Cultural Centre UK and the Coreana Cosmetics Museum Inspired by Nature, the Traditional Cosmetics of Korea features 150 traditional makeup tools and accessories from the largest collection of artifacts related to the history of Korean cosmetics and beauty culture. With pieces dating from the Three Kingdoms period to the early 20th century, this exhibition offers the viewer a unique opportunity to follow not only the history of cosmetic culture but also the craftsmanship. The Inlaid Celadon Containers, complimented by smaller cases inside are the highlights of Goryeo's cosmetic culture and the subsequent Joseon porcelain was among the most beloved of domestic items a new bride would include in her marriage dowry.
