American society stresses the idea that makeup makes a woman more beautiful, and a woman who does wear makeup is not beautiful. This idea is emphasized at a young age, and continuously throughout a woman’s life. Makeup is valued by so many women, this shows how American hold

My aunt’s argument is that it’s ok for girls to put on makeup because they see their mothers putting on makeup so these young girls just want to be like their mother’s. I can see where she coming from because the product doesn’t really contain real makeup it all digital but what if they want the real thing what will happen? My argument is still strong because I worry that mother of this generation is raising these young girls to measure their self-worth based on what’s on the outside and not what’s in the inside.
Have you ever thought about who created makeup? Or how it was created? When, where and how? Why was it created? How has it changed over time? Has it affected anyone? Well I’m going to tell you some of it. Make up wasn’t just created by powder or anything small and simple like that, no. Makeup actually has a lot of its own differences. In 180 BCE was when makeup had first had started but it wasn’t commonly used as much as then. People would limit the use of makeup because it was so expensive and hard to get and or find. The women who actually had it or used it were the prostitutes and the wealthier women. The “Cheap Knockoff’s” were the ones who were sold to the poorer women. The people didn’t really care if the slaves used makeup but

Nine and ten years olds are going through puberty faster than my generation has, and are getting their period and breasts before they should. Taking a look at what freshman girls look like today, with the amount of care and products put into their makeup and hair, they look barely legal. The other issue is how obsessed our culture is with appearance. If these girls are physically maturing faster, and trying to act “older,” they’ll be looking into makeup. Already, there are many harmful things people have done to achieve a certain look, such as sucking into a cup to create Kylie Jenner lips. Lipsticks in the past contained mercury, or lead. These girls are exposed extremely early to the world of makeup and puberty, and it’s not okay when our society is saying that a look is better than someone’s health. Future generations are suffering from our lack of regulations and involvement in this
Teenage girls are taught that they should be unhappy with their bodies and to fix their imperfections, and but a lot of makeup to hide all of it. I don’t mean to bring down all women who wear it, I mean I wear some every time I go to school, but that’s because I hide behind that mask to actually be noticed and liked by people. I am sad to say that I also am influenced by the idea of having to look a certain way. 13 year old girls need to realize sometimes it’s okay to go out without makeup on, and just be you instead of being someone you clearly aren’t. You don’t want to grow up and miss out your
Makeup makes girls feel pretty and some actually feel good in there own skin. Makeup really helps girls start to feel comfortable with themselves because they are able to look their best in front of other people. Some might think that makeup makes girls think they aren't pretty so they have to cover it up. I agree this is what some girls do, but it's not like they're trying to impress someone, like i already said, they are doing it for themselves.
Throughout time the world’s perception of makeup has always been seen as a way for women to enhance their facial features, a way to feel more accepted into society, and as a way to gain the attention of another individual. Society has set specific standards that women and only women can wear makeup. Although in theater productions it was socially acceptable for men to paint their faces, it was not encouraged that men use their cosmetic abilities outside of performances. Many cultures have drilled the idea into their son’s heads that they cannot wear or play with makeup because they would lose their masculinity. Applying makeup was never seen as a way of self expression, but that a woman's natural beauty wasn’t good enough and that her
Makeup has always been something I have been interested in. From the time I was six years old, I loved to sit at my grandma’s vanity and try on her different lipsticks and colored eyeliners. This is why I began learning how to use it correctly when I was eleven years old. It is additionally why I have decided to research this topic. This is incredibly important to me because I and so many others use makeup almost everyday. From the beginning of time, forms of makeup were used by women and sometimes men in many different ways. Today, makeup is used around the world and is free for anyone to use. I hope to discover how makeup and the cosmetic industry has affected culture in the past and how it does so today.
The makeup industry is constantly changing as there are new trends that come about each year. Make up isn’t only used on women; it is also used on men for many purposes.

The trend of makeup came about c.3100-2907 BC, Egypt is known to be the most known place to start using it. The use of makeup has changed drastically over time, in some people’s eyes the makeup industry has improved and evolved. Some may think that the makeup industry has changed in a hideous way. Cosmetics is a woman’s “best friend” in some cases, because who else can cover those hideous pimples that pop on many women’s face! The use of makeup may have been big in other cultures also, but Egypt is most known. As the world changes day by day, the way makeup is used is also changed. Make up can be a hobby for many now, but while used in Egypt it wasn’t a hobby. Making a living off of being a certified makeup artist is also very common. Vanity is very old, and the ancient Egyptians were no exception. “Both men and women were known to wear copious amounts of makeup, which they believed gave them the protection of the gods Horus and Ra. These cosmetics were made by grinding ores like malachite and galena into a substance called kohl” (History). The Egyptians believed their makeup had magical healing powers. Egyptian omen also stained their cheeks with red paint, and use henna to color their hands and fingernails. The most important tool in
There are tutorials all over the internet showing girls the “right” way to do makeup. When in actuality, there is no correct way to apply makeup. Most women wear makeup to hide what they think are imperfections. Teenage girls and women use makeup to cover up what they think society and peers thinks are imperfections. Society puts out a message that natural things like freckles, pimples, scars, birthmarks, and much more are imperfections and that they should be hidden with the coverage of makeup.

Some women even use clothes to cover up their imperfections because of society and
