• Positive: As a woman, dreaming of wearing beautiful make-up speaks of reflecting the beauty on the outside that you already have on the inside.
• Make-up is also clearly a feminine thing and if you are not one to wear makeup and dream that you are, the Lord is trying to tell you that it is time to let out some of your femininity.
• If you dream that you are wearing make-up that you do not usually wear, then the Lord is saying that it is time to change the way that you present yourself to the world.
Negative: Stripped • If you dream that your make-up has been removed, it means that you have lost your self-confidence and have given up trying to present yourself correctly.
• It means that you, as a woman are feeling stripped and bare.
• As a Man • If you are a man and dream you are putting on make-up then clearly the Lord is saying that you are trying to be something that you are not! That your representation of yourself is too feminine.
• It could also be a warning dream to say that you have rejected your masculinity and that it is time to embrace it again.
• Fussing Over Make-up • If you dream that you keep trying to apply your make-up correctly but that you cannot this is also negative.
If you are getting stressed in the dream and • running out of time, the Lord is telling you that you are too worried with externals.
• He is saying that you are making too much of a fuss with what people see on the outside and about ‘getting things right’ than simply shining out from the beauty within.

If you are a woman and you were pleased with your make-up in your dream, your unconscious may be signaling your waking confidence about your appearance. The opposite is true if you disliked your dream make-up. We wear make-up for many reasons to enhance our appearance, to disguise spots and to attract other people.
If you are applying make-up in your dream, what are you trying to hide from others or yourself? If you are painting yourself with body paint in your dream, this is more intimate than wearing a disguise and may relate to your most intimate feelings; the color you are using will be significant.
Your dream may also have focused on one aspect of your face—your lips, for instance.
If so, what are you trying to say in waking life? In Freudian terms, lipstick suggests passionate sexuality, particularly if the dream features a long stick of lipstick caressing lips that represent female genitalia. A woman dreaming of using lipstick signals a desire to attract the attention of a potential lover, but for a man to dream of using lipstick indicates that he might adopt a more feminine approach to a problem in his waking life, perhaps by trusting his instincts more.
If the lipstick appears to be smearing, this may suggest a fear of sexuality or sexual violence. Whether you are a man or woman, if the dream scenario portrayed you as anxiously trying to cover spots and blemishes, are you trying to present a different face to others in waking life?
If you have a suntan in your dream, or are applying suntan cream, your dream may be warning you that you are at risk of getting burned in waking life, or that you are paying too much attention to your appearance. Decorating your body with a tattoo has a similar meaning to body paint, but the important difference is whether or not the tattoo is permanent or temporary.
If the tattoo was temporary, do you need to pay more attention to your image? If the tattoo was a name or a symbol, the reference may not be to the image but to your desire to create a permanent memory in waking life.
If you are having a tattoo removed in your dream, you need to accept that some things in life are difficult and painful to move away from. And what motif is your tattoo in the dream and for which part of the body was it destined? The symbolism of both motif and body part will be significant.... The Element Encyclopedia

A weapon in a dream also symbolizes internal poison or corrosion. According to Freud and most of depth psychology, it is a symbol of masculine sexuality, since bullets penetrate the body. Today, this dream image is less relevant, because weapons so often totally destroy the body. This expands on Freud’s interpretation, which sees it as an interesting tension between creating a body (sexuality) and destroying a body (modern weaponry).... Little Giant Encyclopedia
A damaged weapon means your attempts to defend yourself are futile. See Cannon, Dagger, Pistol, Revolver, Rifle.
Depth Psychology: The dream usually indicates that an important emotional decision needs to made. Because the weapon is a symbol of aggression, and the desire is to solve problems by force, it also stands for aggressive, male sexuality.... Dreamers Dictionary
Using a weapon of any kind in a competent and confident manner implies aggressiveness in pursuing one’s goals. Using a weapon clumsily is a sign that the dreamer doubts his ability to attain his goals.

Astrological parallel: Mars Tarot parallel: The suit of swords... Dream Explanations of Astro Center
If the oneiric weapon is fired, it shows a marked tendency to solve problems aggressively. Although you have a lot of energy, you are using it for negative purposes. The dream is an invitation to stop considering life as a constant struggle. Arms also express anger, resentment, and conflict. When used against someone you know it means that you hold emotions such as anger or rancor. Perhaps you do not dare to speak frankly with that person. In case you do not know such individual, it may represent undesirable aspects of yourself: you are having internal problems that need to be resolved. Furthermore, swords, arrows, knives, pistols, and daggers are phallic symbols denoting male sexual aggression.
Dreaming of weapons is an indication of ferocity and honor. Holding them with your hand is an omen of glory and success. Making them represent convalescence and recovery of energy.

Taking up a weapon reveals hostility or fear that you may be repressing during waking hours. Turn to look upon the object of your actions. Sometimes just facing your true feelings is enough to begin the healing process.
Guns are violent, but impersonal. These reveal a source of anger or anxiety that you would prefer to keep at arm’s length. How healthy this distance is for you, however, is questionable, or your dreams would not reveal it.
A catapult indicates the ability to circumnavigate an obstacle by ingenious thought and assertive action.

• 2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare [are] not fleshly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds
Arrow, Axe, Bow, Dagger, Dart, Shield, Spear, Sword.... The Way of Dreams and Visions
If you dream of using a weapon against someone, do you harbor hidden anger and aggression that you have not expressed in waking life? If you do not know the person you are attacking, your weapon and victim may be symbolic representations of aspects of yourself you do not like or find hard to deal with. You may have inner conflicts that need to be resolved, or ‘killed off’.
If so, what does your unknown victim look like, and how does he, she or it react to the threat? All this may provide you with important clues.
If you have a weapon used against you in a dream this may suggest that you have done something to upset people around you or it may be that you feel you have become the victim of circumstances.
If you are shot in the dream, this may be referring to internalized aggression, past hurt or a fear of being hurt.
According to Freud, almost every weapon is a phallic symbol and many dream researchers still subscribe to this view.
If a man dreams he is attacking a woman with a weapon or hunting a woman, it may reveal an equivocal attitude towards women. A woman who dreams of being attacked may be expressing sexual insecurity or a fear of men. Weapons or firearms that malfunction in dreams or fail to work may indicate a sense of powerlessness to handle challenges in daily life. They may also suggest anxiety about sexual performance or an inability to express ideas confidently to other people.
If a work tool or other object is used as an offensive weapon, this suggests a skill or authority that has turned against you, as might happen if a teacher was taking advantage of a pupil. The atmosphere of the dream will provide the best clue for analysis, but ancient dream oracles suggest that this dream generally means you have enemies who pretend to be friends. In other words, ‘watch your back’.... The Element Encyclopedia
