Makeup is a multibillion dollar industry, we often forget that Makeup, has been around for centuries, within a range of diverse cultures.
The social context that surrounds these tubes of liquid gold, is what constructs our modern day makeup culture.
Makeup is like a fairy god mother, when you conceal that awful throbbing pimple from the rest of the world. Makeup is clear dead give away, when your mascara runs, or when it’s smudged beneath the bags created, after a hard night out.
Don’t you just cringe from your mascara face, or even worse, that dreadful moment when you’ve just applied a nice coat of mascara, no clumps, then BAM! ACHOOO!!! Mascara flicks and smudges galore paint your face.
We can question Makeup, is it corrupt ? Is it empowering ? Or is it sexist ? It depends who you ask…
