We don’t really need makeup items. However, many people, especially women believe they need makeup to boost their self-esteem, increase their confidence, and improve their personality and attitude. There is some truth to this belief, in fact there is a name for this psychological phenomenon and it’s called the “lipstick effect”. I just think it’s a shame that this is needed.
It’s really the fault of big companies and advertising that women feel they need makeup. Just think how much healthier the world would be without all the raw materials, energy, and trash generated from the manufacture and use of makeup, all to make people feel better because they think they look better.
