That use of makeup by women serving in the military is even being discussed is ridiculous. They not only should not wear makeup, they should not be allowed to wear makeup. Women in the military should dress exactly the same as the men, live exactly the same (in the same facilities with the men), cut their hair exactly the same, etc. These things are important to morale, unit cohesion, field hygiene, etc. (i.e., important to combat effectiveness) and should not be compromised in order to suit the aesthetic sensibilities of women. Period.
