        Keisai Eisen, Woman Putting on Face Powder (detail), 1820–22

Are you admiring me? How beautiful I am! I’m modeling a face powder to make my complexion appear white as a cloud. (Pity it’s made from lead or mercury, but such is the price of beauty.) Plus, my iridescent green lower lip is simply too chic!
