Cosmetics are used to cover up your natural appearance. Dreams that focus on not being able to find what you use to produce your 'everyday face' can be symbolic of a need to move in a more natural or authentic direction. If you dream of accentuating certain features with heavy makeup - consider the part of the face that is being highlighted. Eyeliner can be a message about clarity of vision or the need to focus, while lipstick can be highlighting communication. Dreams of blush or rouge can signify the need to allow your natural feelings to come to the surface. Dreams that focus on cosmetics are usually exploring the disparity of one's external appearance and the life of the real person below the Persona. See also Clothing and Makeup.
