Hmm, I don’t think those sources say quite what the author is claiming they say. For example, the witch source states that while Elizabeth I passed a new and harsher witchcraft law in 1562, it definitely does not claim that was the year witchcraft became illegal in England. Furthermore, it also points out that Elizabeth I was more lenient towards witchcraft than her counterparts in France and Spain. Moving on, the makeup source appears to indicate the exact opposite of the author’s claim. Elizabethan women who could afford it wore lots of white, poisonous lead-based makeup to achieve a pale completion. Side note, I think this was particularly in following the style of the queen herself, who coated her face in the white stuff and wore red wigs (yup, the end of Blanchett’s “Elizabeth” got the appearance right). I have read more on the Tudor Era (btw not part of Medieval Period), than the earlier histories of England, so I will keep my commentary to that above. However, it appears that a bit more research and reading should have gone into this article, even for Buzzfeed.
