“THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAKEUP OF A WOMAN IS PASSION.
BUT COSMETICS ARE EASIER TO BUY”
WHAT IS MAKEUP?
Makeup is a mask used by both men and women in order to
embellish themselves. An issue raised ,whether makeup is for those who are
of lower self esteem? The answer is definitely, NO.
Makeup is not always because of lower self esteem. Makeup is mostly
to impress others in the society; it is used for first impression. From my
point of view, if a woman feels that she needs makeup to look better and if
she uses it, that is not a big issue, but if a women spend a lot of money on makeup
then it has become a problem that is what happening in the present
world. A census rate in America says that a woman from a normal
background spends 1000 dollars on an average within a year for makeup.
ORIGIN OF MAKEUP:
In contrast to popular belief, the use of makeup is not a modern
day trend, and it may have started long before the Egyptians. In an
archaeological find in Spain, shells were discovered which scientist believe
that were used to hold ancient forms of makeup. Leading archaeologists believe
the first use of makeup may have been by the NEANDARTHALS as much as
50,000 years ago. Prior to the discovery of the Neandarthals stained shells in
It was believed that the Egyptians were the first to use makeup starting around
Then it spread to ancient Greece and Rome
WHY WOMEN ARE IN GREATER COUNT THAN MEN IN USING MAKEUP?
Here in the statement above too, I have mentioned about
the usage of makeup by a woman, why because women are using the
makeup in a larger number than men. This is not a problem and this does not
mean that women are not or men does beautiful by nature not need makeup.
Let me put forward an illustration, this provides the reason why women are
In greater count in using makeup.
If a man meets a woman for the first time. Before meeting her
he imagines a figure of a beautiful woman in his mind, if the woman
fails to satisfy his dream then he will be disappointed. In vice versa, if a woman
meets a man for the first time, yes of course she too has a secret dream
about him inside her heart but using makeup or without makeup too he can
satisfy her dream.
This does not mean that a woman using makeup alone will satisfy the dream
of a man, there are lot of exceptions too, but this is from a general view.
“A WOMAN WITHOUT MAKEUP LOOKS PRETTY
A WOMAN WITH MAKEUP LOOKS PRETTIER”
However with or without makeup, women are pretty in their nature.
Earlier makeup was used by the people those who want their face to look
brighter in the photographs but then developed “Cinema”, where all the
actors and actresses use makeup to impress the public. But now it is the main
reason for the youngsters to use makeup as they all were attracted by the glowing
MAKEUP IS NOT RELATED TO STATUS:
Today it has become a fashion to use makeup ,many of them started to value people
only based upon their external appearance actually which is actually not fair. And more
than this some think that using makeup alone will improve their status. For those
people , I would like to put forward these three questions:
1. Whether our ancient women were given respect for their external appearance?
2. Whether Mother Teresa, a woman of love, care and sacrifice was using makeup?
Then how she is residing in the hearts of Indians even today?
3. If we wear makeup whether it will express the beauty of our hearts?
From my point of view, using makeup is just to make ourselves look
better. Some use this technique to impress others. All these statements
are not only for girls but also for boys , because nowadays boys too started
to use makeup.
One more important announcement for those who think that beauty
and status is only for those who are using makeup,
MAKEUP IS SOMETHING TO HIDE OUR ORIGINALITY. USING COSMETICS
IS NOT A MISTAKE BUT MISUSING IT IS AN OFFENCE.
So my humble request for them is “DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S
COVER” . Great women like MOTHER TERESA, INDIRA GANDHI,
MUTHULAKSHMI REDDY etc were not that much beautiful by their
external appearance but touched the hearts of our Indians till today only
because of their inner beauty.
