Make-up has been used as a sign/symbol for thousands of years because of the symbolism attributed to colour. Make-up has undergone so many significant cultural changes throughout the ages and often appears to reflect the society’s contemporary outlook. Today, it acts as a mirror or social barometer of the society and its values. We are here to take a closer look at those barometers. In this episode of The Looking Glass Malvika Khajuria and Seema Hari discuss the riddle that make-up had burdened them with and how they navigate beauty norms in a society that is always measuring us by a shade card of fair and lovely.
