Mascara - to Mask OR to Marvel?


There was a line on London’s underground underneath a few make-up items which read “A whole new way to mask in 90 seconds” .

Which prompted a pondering; make up - - What does it really mean to us women? Is it a confidence giver, a camouflage trickster, weapon to seduce or tool to recluse? A cure for insecurity, tonic for anxiety or antidote for timidity?

Might we be wearing make-up as an aid to try and look younger, thinner and sexier?
