i think the color is a bit too strong, don't you? it should probably go with a lighter pink. 07:35, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Rose Red[edit]

Rose Red is not a cosmetic company. It is the name of the character in Snow White & the Seven Dwarves.

Make-up artist[edit]

Should Make-up artist have a link in related topics? --Christopherlin (talk) 04:57, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Picture getting too big[edit]

OK, so it is. We need to convert this to one of those navboxes with the picture in the corner. Daniel Case (talk) 16:47, 7 June 2008 (UTC)


I changed it from Contemporary Western cosmetics and plastic surgery to simply Cosmetics.

Contemporary is hard to define and there's nothing exclusively Western about the items in the navbox. These products are used internationally.

I don't see anything about plastic surgery in the navbox. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:03, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Skin dyeing[edit]

Currently we seem to have nothing on skin modification and/or dyeing besides skin whitening, sunless tanning, and blackface. There seems to be a slow-moving fight about whether the blackface article is about any use of cosmetics to darken skin (in which case it really should go here) or just about the US racist stagecraft tradition (in which case it really shouldn't).

A better solution would be to eventually have something for all variations of skin modification: whitening, darkening, yellowing (as when missionaries tried to avoid trouble with xenophobes in China), as well as the more bizarre tints like the Britons going blue. (Today, in the west we'd associate skin dyed red with demons and skin dyed green with reptiles but there have doubtless been other uses and meanings of the same practice.)

In any case, the topic deserves a broader landing page and treatment than articles almost exclusively dealing with socio-political history of racist caricature and psychology and marketing of racism-induced self-loathing. — LlywelynII 05:56, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
