Inspired by the idea of Feminist means “No Cosmetics!”
Yes, I know, that’s sort of an outdated idea but there was a time when if you were a “real” feminist" cosmetics were a no-no!
Cosmetics in the 1970’s
Susan Brownmiller, for instance, called an unadorned face “the honorable new look of feminism”.
I always felt that a strong woman could do whatever she wanted…wear lipstick, rescue the knight in shining armour , or maybe rescue the dragon…whatever she felt like doing!
