Is make-up bad for you?
Women(and modern men) all over the world doll up;From waxing,tattooing,laser treatments(leads to alopecia,causes stress),pretty clothes to the necessary lipstick/lip-gloss, sunblock/foundation. Some cosmetics are temporary; others are not.Removal can have worse consequences than the application and vice versa.

Lipsticks have lead in them; what is in your make up?
We do have a sense of the consequences being bad even if we aren't entirely sure of the extent of the damage that can potentially be caused.
We all know that, the computer is a harmful machine, then why are we so dependent on the computer in the modern era? it`s only an example. So in the modern era we are compromising our health for such a lot of things which are not suitable for us.
In the case of cancer, make up is not only a reason, there are many other reasons which cause cancer. so we need to detach ourselves from all things which are harmful to us.
is it possible.......? I don`t know, is it possible for you to take grammar lessons? I`m willing to offer free tuition; just for you.
Almost everybody with a permanent tattoo wants to remove it at some point, causing even greater problems than the initial application did.
People get bored of their tattoos; trends change,people get fat/skinny/fair/dark/pimply. There is an artificiality to it that can weigh on you pressuring you to empty your pockets for removal and even then get less than satisfactory results.
Some tattooists are not as good as others; sometimes pigment spills; causing a blurred look, at other times people don't like the pattern on their skin.
Women who excessively pluck/thread and therefore harangue their eyebrows can lose them all together. This weird obsession is dictated by the mass media of our zeitgeist, some people go as far as stating that eyebrows are unclean/unhygienic(the way ancient Egyptians felt about hair); and it makes me wish I was an adult in the eighties.

If I ingest a morsel orally I risk choking would that stop me from eating?
90% of us reportedly share expired makeup
Sharing make up means sharing bacteria.
Using the same blush-on/mascara for years means consistent exposure to your bacteria.
dried-up/hard/expired makeup is bad for your skins/eyes/etc for obvious reasons.
Also make up only used once in a blue moon for weddings or big/special events cannot really expire in a few months; can it?
No one wants to be the odd one out; especially if it means being the ugly duckling or plain. Or otherwise considered to be incapable-of/inept-at grooming yourself.
Animal-products, alcohol and their derivates are not good for the skin
Many animal rights' activists are also against this old but previously unnoticed practice.
What research have you done?
She seems to be expanding her business through the B.B.C and other sources that I feel are reliable. You on the other hand...
Counter: What about the stress of not doing it right? of being told you look horrible? All these fashion gurus, notoriously promote low self esteem and tarnish self image leading to a variety of indirect health problems. Coupled with the directly adverse effects these products have on our skin; this is unacceptable.
While heavy makeup isn't encouraged ; having no makeup on is also considered to be unprofessional for working women.
It should depend on where you work.
