  • Not that I am aware of. It warns women, in a nutshell, of being "slutty" haha... but makeup, in moderation, isn't a problem.

  • no.
    certain people and denominations consider it in with the sin of vanity though which is why they do not allow it.

  • There are places in the Bible that talk about women not adorning their hair, wearing jewelry, fancy clothing, etc. There are also places in the old testement that only describe "bad" women as "painting their eyes"

    I'm not a Bible literalist, and I believe that these things are cultural....in context, at that time and place, "good" women didn't wear makeup.

  • NO, woman have been the same since the beginning of time. I wear makeup for my husband, other than that I could care less to wear it. If a woman wants to look beautiful to Yahweh they are to do it with Good deeds, and actions. Since we are to want for our husbands we are allowed to wear makeup to please them. As long as we do not get vain about it or feel proud it is okay because then we are not comparing ourselves or judging anyone else. MPO blessings..

  • It's all too easy to missinterpret Bible verses regarding vanity and defacing the body. Christ simplified that by teaching that we should not make those things a point of worship or ritual.
