Makeup is defined as the craft of applying substances or products to transform the appearance of a person’s face or body part. This activity can have purely aesthetic purposes, to cover imperfections or simply to enhance the beauty of the face. However, there is also artistic makeup, for entertainment reasons, or makeup for cultural reasons such as that of certain aboriginal groups.
Traditionally, only women apply makeup in everyday life. Men who are exposed to mass media, such as television, movies or theater, often also wear makeup to look exactly as expected in that circumstance.
