Art is to conceal concealer

- +

It may be none of my business, but something has been disturbing me in recent years. Virtually everywhere I go these days, I see so many women, from salary earners to high school students, wearing make-up. However, I believe more than half of them have no need to cover their faces with cosmetics. 

But don't get me wrong. I'm not against make-up. There have been countless surveys and studies that explain why women (and some men, too) feel they "have to" wear it. The reasons range from the desire to look good and to boost self-confidence to addiction to the practice, among others.

In a nutshell, it's all about the belief in make-up's ability to make someone look better. That, I must admit, is not untrue _ many people's looks are improved through the power of powder.
