I have never been tempted to dye my nair nor to wear make-up since the Lord saved me. After reading this post, I thought of how some person somewhere said that even an old barn looks better with a new coat of paint. This was obviously to give women permission to put on the make-up. When you phrased your response in light of living things and dead things, I had an a-ha moment. Make-up (and hair dye) is for the dead.
