I recently came across a particularly good example of how women trick with makeup. Have a look at this (fair use assumed):
Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that the two pictures are too similar to be natural. Thus, the picture on the left has most likely been created with “makeup removal” software that simply makes some educated guesses. Whether the picture on the left is real or not is not irrelevant, because the important takeaway is that the picture on the right is not real in any case. It shows a real person. Yet, with that heavy layer of makeup, you are not facing reality.
Imagine what would happen if makeup was outlawed! Of course, feminists would be up in arms. They are not really against the objectification of women, knowing full well that it would be a lot more difficult to extract resources from men if they were facing supposed natural beauty. Makeup is a matter of (economic) life and death for most women. Many women have only their looks to get by. Sure, some end up in cushy diversity roles in industry, but the vast majority are employed in menial jobs which they would like to quit sooner rather than later. Escaping that kind of life is a lot more difficult without a thick layer of makeup.
