The meaning of Makeup in dream | Dream interpretation
Dreams in which you are applying makeup indicate that you do not feel comfortable with your personality and, therefore, you need to change your ways in order to become successful. Putting on mask can be useful to protect yourself from others, but this attitude often hides your true personality.
If the makeup is very exaggerated (garish and artificial colors), the dream also indicates that you try to draw attention ostentatiously, and may be living beyond your means. (See MASK)
1. Escape from reality.
3. Exercising imagination.
A dream of using or buying makeup is a very fortunate omen. Good luck is coming your way.

Vision: Seeing makeup: don’t try to make something negative look better than it is or hush it up. Also, don’t be impressed by appearances—they are deceptive. Seeing people wearing makeup: beware of false friends.
If you are wearing makeup: you want people to think you are better than you really arc, but you are only deceiving yourself. See Powder, Wig.
Depth Psychology: The best motto always is to live the “unvarnished truth.” Do you want to hide something? Are you easily deceived by what people “seem” to be, by people whose intentions are not honest? These are questions that only you can answer. See Mask.
Makeup in a dream can imply a cover-up to conceal one’s inner self, indicating discomfort about revealing oneself to the world.
At the opposite extreme, the dreamer may feel that putting on makeup is putting on one’s best face, presenting oneself in all one’s glory and accomplishments.
Makeup is associated with the public persona and creating the illusion of more beauty than you actually possess. There is an element of inauthenticity being expressed through this as a dream image and a desire to present a face to the world that may conceal the truth beneath the surface. What is happening with the makeup within the context of the dream should enhance your interpretation. Putting on makeup is to cover up something true with a false presentation. Taking makeup off is to desire a more authentic way of being seen in the world.
Symbolic of making yourself beautiful or self-improvement, 2 Kings 9:30
Applying makeup in your dreams may comment that it is time to “make up” with a friend or partner after an argument. It may also express a woman’s concerns about looking beautiful.
