<<< Anyway, I have a question I could do with some help. My local
group has asked me to do a short'ish presentation of beauty / makeup
used in the middle ages on March 20th at our Collegia.
I have found the SCA pages ~ Stefan's Florilegium and
[SCA-AS] Medieval Cosmetics plus a few other not so helpful sites.
Sadly I have found the links to the cosmetics are broken.>>>
Which links are broken? I'm not aware of any within the Florilegium
itself. And if they are, I certainly want to get them fixed. There may
be some pointing off of the site since it is real difficult to keep
those all up-to-date.
If you start at the top of the site, given in my signature line below,
and then pick the PERSONAL CARE section from the scrolling menu on the
left side you should find several files and articles which should fit
<<< I really am after actual recipes for lotions / creams / makeup as
I'd like to do a hands on presentation. >>>
Here are some of the files in the PERSONAL CARE section which I think
would help you:

Waters" by Metressa Jadwiga
I believe Metressa (Mistress) Jadwiga has some more recipes on her
website as well. It should be given in her article above or a web
search should find it.
Please let me know if I can be of further help.
