To dream that you are applying makeup suggests that you are trying to cover up or conceal an aspect of yourself.
Alternatively, it indicates that you are putting on your best face forward.
You are trying to enhance your self-image and increase your sense of self-confidence. The dream may also be a metaphor that you need to “make up” with someone. It is time to forgive and forget.
To dream that you are wearing too much makeup indicates that you are putting too much emphasis on beauty and outside appearances rather than what is inside.
