Praise of make-up: from the cosmos to cosmetics
Why do women wear makeup? The answers of the interested parties are often evasive: "To feel good..." Could they stop making up? "Nope !" The idea of not wearing makeup can even be perceived as an attack on identity. In an elegant and luminous style, the author plunges us into a history of make-up that demonstrates the importance, since human beings have become civilized, of the cosmetic gesture. “Fixing up” is an art of compromise, of openness, a benevolent game rather than a deceptive artifice. Behind a lipstick, a mascara, there is a whole way of being, more nuanced, more enchanted, less violent than that of men.
