vs. Hello sisters, today I wanted to talk about the topic of makeup. Everybody has there own opinion on what scriptures say about makeup and whether it's wrong or right to wear. I don't believe in any of the Bible verses I've read does it say wearing makeup is a "sin" so to speak, I believe what Jeremiah 4:30 is saying is that vanity is a sin, not necessarily that makeup in it's self is a sin. However I personally don't wear makeup here's way: I believe God didn't make any mistakes as He was crafting us together, so why then would I need to paint of something as though God didn't do it right. I don't think wearing makeup is a "sin", I think we don't need it. I do think however that if women wear it caked on heavy eye makeup or harsh lip colors that it is going against what 1 Timothy 2:9-10 says about adoring yourself in with modesty and self control. If you were to look up the definition of modesty this is what you would find.
the quality of being modest; freedom from vanity, boastfulness,etc.
regard for decency of behavior, speech, dress, etc.
I think this perfectly describes what the Bible wants all women to do when it comes to being modest. So do I think it's a sin to wear makeup, no. Do I think in excessive use it goes against the Bible, yes! Do I think God intended for women to paint over His work of art, no.
1 Timothy 2:9-10
Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.
And you, O desolate one, what do you mean that you dress in scarlet, that you adorn yourself with ornaments of gold, that you enlarge your eyes with paint? In vain you beautify yourself. Your lovers despise you; they seek your life.
God bless sisters!
