Cosmetics and the Bible

There is very little evidence related to the use of cosmetics in Israel. We know that Israelites used cosmetics, because archaeologists have found utensils associated with the production and application of cosmetics. It is impossible to say how widespread the practice was, but it is logical to conclude that it was at least common among Israel's upper classes. The three biblical passages in which makeup is mentioned provide little information. In preparation to meet Jehu, Jezebel "painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out of a window" (2 Kings 9:30). Her specific purpose for this beautification is not clear. Was she trying to seduce him? Was she using the makeup to protect herself from evil? The text implies that she dressed and adorned herself as a queen to confront her enemy. Her beauty did not save her. 

Makeup is associated with seduction in Jeremiah 4:30, where Israel is described as a woman to whom the Lord asks: "Why dress yourself in scarlet and put on jewels of gold? Why shade your eyes with paint? You adorn yourself in vain. Your lovers despise you." Enhanced beauty through makeup would not deliver her from her enemies. The same ideas are expressed in Ezekiel 23:40. The tone of both passages is negative. Those three texts imply that makeup was known and used by Israelite women, that it contributed to the beautification of the woman, and that there were limits to its value.

Makeup Today: Makeup is very common among women and is becoming so among men. The fundamental purposes continue to be hygienic and aesthetic. The Bible does not give any specific guidelines concerning its use, but biblical principles should guide us in its use. First, the Bible does not deny the value of a good appearance and a concern for health. Second, the Bible places the emphasis on inner beauty over physical beauty. Finally, modesty should be the norm when addressing this particular issue. Modesty describes a demeanour that expresses itself in self-respect, discretion, and the avoidance of extremes; based on the fact that we are children of God and representatives of our Lord.5
