    How to use "Smocking" in context?

    The word "smocking" is derived from the French word "smaquing" which means "to smear." in olden days, people used to smear their faces with a special ointment made of beeswax and rose water in order to make their skin look rosy. This custom is now considered outdated, but the name for the practice of using this ointment for skin coloration is still used today- "smocking."

    The custom of smocking probably started in the Middle Ages. At that time, Knights would visit the homes of rich merchants and ask for small gifts in return for favors done for them.
