Cosmetics

Dominant Attribute: Charm

Often maligned as the skill of covering up what is not beautiful, the Skill of Cosmetics should truly be seen as the art of enhancing that which is already beautiful and turning it into that which is wonderful.  For centuries, cosmetics have been enhanced with magical properties, thus transfering some of the properties to those who use the creams, glosses, and powders.  Those who study Cosmetics will learn much of what can be made and what can be done to enhance that which waits buried deep inside us all.

Perfumes

Dominant Attribute: Charm

In a world where water is available yet scarce, people developed their own systems for reducing their somewhat rather fragrant nature in ways that were both inventive and natural.  With advances in magic, it is now possible to remove these offending olfactory odors altogether, yet many people still prefer to enjoy the sweet scent of something from nature…or better, if it can be had.  The Skill of Perfume is about both making and using perfumes.  One of the difficulties people have every day is knowing how much perfume to use and when to use which scent; with a decent understanding of Perfumes, one no longer has to wonder if enough has been used or applied correctly…it simply is.

Sewing

Dominant Attribute: Charm

Sewing is, in very general terms, the skill of adapting cloth to desired practical and aesthetic effect.  [In more specific terms, it's of course the skill of stitching with needle and thread - but here the word is being stretched to allow for magical attachments, reconfigurations and crimes against good fashion as well.]  You need Courtly Fashion to know how a few yards of velvet might be most pleasingly arranged as the lining of a cloak; you need skill at Sewing to make it happen.
