The Spice Trail saffron make-up

In the UK a programme called The Spice Trail has a section on Berber saffron pickers http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yyd1n In one section, the presenter has a paste made from ground up saffron applied to her face in dots and vines. There is a lovely section of the programme where saffron pickers are working together and singing which shows traditional dress, hennaed hands and the purlply black fingers of the saffron pickers (from the purple crocus stains).

Has anyone else come across this use of saffron?
