Ok, this may seem frivolous
compared to most of my posts, but I just need to say it.
I don’t get “Shabbos Makeup.”
Aliza Hausman posted this recently and its been on my mind ever since. If I wear powder makeup normally, can I wear that on Shabbat? What makes this powder special? Why does it matter? Why is this powder different from all other powder?
I get wanting to find a way to wear makeup. I love to wear makeup when I want to look a bit prettier, and know many women who wear sheitels on Shabbat specifically because of the inability to wear makeup. But how does that create a need for a whole industry of halachically approved makeup? There are multiple websites which sell it, and every major frum website has insights about wearing makeup. Clearly its a thing, but it is beyond my comprehension.
Someone please enlighten me on this phenomena!
