Dreaming about makeup symbolizes that you are looking good and maintained. You look your best in front of others. In particular, makeup means that you are confident about your appearance and do not worry about being judged or criticized by others when they see you.
So, if you dream about makeup, it is good to know that you are looking good on the outside and may want to look your best in front of others. Maybe, this dream means that you have confidence in your appearance.
But another aspect of this dream is that you are trying to cover up your imperfections. You try to cover up your defects, flaws, and weaknesses with makeup. It is a way for you to feel better about yourself and gain confidence in front of others.
Below we will go through some common makeup dreams, as well as their meaning and interpretation.
If you dream that you have a makeup bag, it represents that there will be some improvement in your life or personality. You need to follow up on this idea or possibility.
If there is a makeup bag or purse in your dream, then it may mean that you have issues with self-image. You feel that you need to improve or upgrade yourself in order to impress others. There is something that you want, but it can only be attained through “makeup.”
Dream about makeup bags also interprets that you are developing yourself as being self-reliant. You are developing more confidence in yourself, and you don’t have to rely on others for help anymore.
Makeup kit in your dream also suggests that you are proactively planning for your success. Dreams of a makeup kit could also mean that you want to look your best when you take a major step in life, or it could simply indicate that you need to improve on some part of yourself. There’s always room for improvement as far as dreams are concerned.
Dreaming about blush makeup suggests that you will soon be surprised by some news about a person you are close with. The color of the blush makeup indicates the nature of how you will feel when you find out about the surprise news.
A pink blush suggests that you will be happy when you hear the news, while a red blush means that you will be disappointed to learn of the news.
To blush in your dream means you will feel guilty about a mistake that might have been made or, to put it simply, “You will be red with shame because of something you did.” If someone blushes in your dream, it means they are guilty of something, and he/she is ashamed about what they are hiding.
If in your dream someone else was holding the makeup brush, the meaning may not have anything to do with fashion at all. This dream might mean that others are pressuring you into doing something you never wanted to do or forced upon you by peers who now think they know what is best for you and your life.
If there was no one else holding the brush for you, the dream might be telling you that you will do something on your own without any help from someone else. This may show doubts about how well you will succeed in reaching your goal, or it could show that you are already preparing for the future through research, studying, and other activities.
Dream with someone else holding the makeup bush but not applying it on you suggests that you are feeling that someone is trying to control your actions in life. You may feel like you need a break from the pressure of being treated as somebody else’s property or just not being able to do something the way you want it, and this dream shows that this is what you really think, but no one listens.
Putting on makeup like mascara or fake eyelashes means that you are not yourself in the presence of a particular person. You may be afraid of how he or she will react, but this dream tells you to do just what comes naturally because you must believe in yourself and your decisions.
But if the mascara washes away between the dream and the day, it is a sign to you that your efforts are unsuccessful. You do not want to lose what matters most to you, and if you are losing this person or maybe even yourself in the process of trying to be something that you really aren’t, then perhaps the makeup should stay off for now.
If you dream of putting on a foundation, it is a sign that you are trying to hide something from others. You might be worried about what other people think of your life or even yourself. Knowing whether the makeup washes off during your dream will indicate if you can overcome these insecurities or not.
Your beauty will shine through the outer layers of the foundation you are using. Dreaming of makeup can be a positive thing if you have a need to improve your appearance. It might signal that you want to look more attractive and that you are ready to face life with confidence, but it could also indicate that you are hiding from the world.
If you are buying makeup in your dream, you may be trying to improve your life by making it look more attractive. You might be feeling that you are lacking something and want to change this about yourself or perhaps find a way of living better.
This is not uncommon if you have gone through a breakup
If you see someone else buying makeup in your dream, this can reflect thoughts you have about a person in your life. You might be trying to improve them or make them more attractive, so even though you are not buying makeup, you are thinking in these terms.
Dream about applying full makeup reflects that you want to make a great impression. You might be trying to impress someone special or feel better about yourself. If you think that makeup hides something, you should focus on what it covers up in your life.
If you are applying makeup for a special occasion or a party, then it suggests that you are trying to make a great impression.
Applying makeup just for fun indicates that you might be getting caught up in superficial things or material pleasures. It is time to maintain your balance and remember those things that are more important in life.
Dreaming of removing your makeup means you need to stop hiding things and be more honest with your feelings. Are you facing some issues in your life that you are trying to avoid? Or maybe, you are struggling with a decision or problem and need to make a change soon. This dream is also a sign of insecurity in romantic relationships or friendships.
But if you see someone else removing makeup off of you in your dreams, then it means that someone is trying to show the real you. In this case, it might be you, or it can be your parents, friends, or even lover who is trying to get closer with your inner self and see who you are by hiding behind all those makeups, clothes, etc.
Stealing makeup from someone else means that you are stealing someone’s power, energy, or someone’s idea to make use of it for your benefit. You can be using it in a good way, but it’s still not right, and the dream is trying to show that.
Others stealing makeup from you means that someone else is trying to steal your ideas, creativity, or plans from you. You need to watch out for these people and be careful of what they are doing and thinking as they can put themselves and you as well at risk if they continue with their ways.
Doing makeup for someone else means that you are giving the other person a new opportunity to present themselves and their personality to others. This can be a compliment because it shows that you understand them well and consider them as important members of your life.

If you see a whole makeup store in your dream, then it signifies that you are more than ready to take on a new adventure.

But it can also interpret that you are feeling silly around others and you are trying too hard to make a good impression of yourself. It is also possible that you feel as if your life is not going the way it was supposed to, and you need something or someone to change this situation around so that you can become happy once again.
