the make-up industry is huge.
commenting on female fear of the inherent self and the demonization of aging, today women often forsake their natural state for the general societal view that valuation is largely defined by youth, beauty, and purity.
racking up inevitable impossible stains and covering them in white paint... ... deterioration is nearly immediate and maintaining purity is impossible. stagnation/irrelevance isn't far behind.
by painting over the stains, dabbing cover-up on the dark spots, the process of a disruptive event itself is documented and put on display. the attempt to trick the viewer and oneself that a pure state can be maintained infinitely is in itself the evidence one wishes to conceal.
