    Across all cultures, across all centuries, we've painted our bodies, marked our faces with 1)ochre and ashes, 2)mascara and 3)rouge.

Woman1: Psychologically speaking, make up is extremely important. It is part of 4)pageantry. It's fun to make yourself up.

Woman2: And yes, I think it is a bit of a secret weapon. Giving yourself more confidence or making love to oneself. Great. Yeah!

Man 1: Makeup1 is the connection to that other version of self.

     In every age make up has taken on deep significance. Ancient Egyptian rulers, Celtic warriors2 fighting the Romans, England's Queen Elizabeth I, or an early twentieth century woman forcing her wayinto a male working world. For each, cosmetics4 played a vital role.

Woman 3: I said here's my face. Here's who I am, and appreciate it, enjoy it.

     Now science and marketing5 have combined to 5)weave cosmetics products tightly into millions of lives, and world wide many more are added to the fold each year.

Woman 4: We like to think of ourselves as the Coca-Cola or the McDonalds of beauty.

     The history of cosmetics is 6)con-troversial. Very often the lines drawn6 have been social battle lines.  The painted face has been variously 7)reviled on religious, moral, or political grounds according to the temper of the times.

Woman 5: Mothers took their daughters into 8)juvenile court to prevent them from wearing make up.

Judge:Shall incur8 the 9)penalty of the law in force against 10)witchcraft.

Woman 6:  It's 11)alienated women from their bodies.

     Across the years some women have been literally9 dying to be beautiful. Cosmetic3 12)ingredients once included 13)arsenic and lead, and some say the dangers remain.

Man 2: The whole witches 14)brew of thisindustry, this 15)reckless industry.

     Others as strongly defend the safety of cosmetics and their right to use them.

Woman 7: I'm me and I'm a woman and I feel strong, but I also enjoy makeup.

Man 3: I use cosmetics, my wife does, and we use them on our small baby. I wouldn't do that if I didn't think they were safe.

     And these never have been issues for women alone.

Woman 8: There's no question that men are just as 16)vain as women.

Woman 9: We are looking for their husbands, they're looking for everybody.

     For much of the past and in many cultures, men have worn make up quite openly. Cosmetics companies are hoping to persuade them to do it again.

Woman 10: There's no question that they are grooming10 men to be 17)predisposition to wear cosmetics again.

Man 4: We ain't going to go 18)meekly into the future looking older and older.

     For both men and women the quest for beauty is an essential part of our humanity. While 19)cynics say what cosmeticians sell us is hope in a jar.

妆海沉浮

 

   跨越不同的民族,历经不同的年代,我们一直在身体上、脸上用赭石、灰、睫毛膏和胭脂涂涂画画。

1:从心理角度上来说,化妆尤其重要。那是美的一部分。装扮自己是很有乐趣的事情。

2:是的,我想那是一件秘密武器。给自己带来更多信心,更爱自己。太棒了。是的!

1:化妆关联着其他版本的自我。

   在不同年代,化妆都有很深的影响力。从古埃及统治者、与罗马人作战的凯尔特战士,到英国伊丽莎白女王一世,和二十世纪早期闯入男性主导社会的事业女性。化妆品在每一代人当中都扮演了重要的角色。

3:我说,这是我的脸。这是我的模样,请欣赏、喜爱吧。

   现在,科学与营销学结合起来,让化妆品与无数人紧密联系在一起,每年在全球还有更多的人增加进来。

4:我们喜欢把自己想成是化妆界的可口可乐和麦当劳。

   化妆品的历史有颇多争议。妆容画的线通常也画出了社会争端。随着时代变化,脸部化妆分别遭受过宗教、道德和政治方面的痛斥。

5:母亲带上女儿们到少年法庭去,要求阻止她们化妆。

法官:使用妖术的要按法例判罚。

6:它使妇女对自己的身体感到陌生。

   许多年来,有些妇女爱美爱至着魔地步。以往的化妆品中含有砒霜和铅,有的人认为,危险至今仍有存在。

2:这完全是女巫制造的、不计后果的害人事业。

   一些人则奋力声明化妆品是安全无害的,人们有权利使用它。

7:我就是我,我是个女人,我性格坚强,但我也喜欢化妆。

3:我用化妆品,我太太用,我们给我们的小宝宝也用。如果我认为化妆品不安全就不会这么做了。

   化妆从不是女人专享的权利。

8:毫无疑问,男人和女人同样虚荣。

9:我们找丈夫,他们找其他东西。

   在过去许多时候,在许多民族中,男性都很公开地化过妆。如今化妆品公司正希望能说服他们重操此行。

10:男性无疑是仪表不凡的,天生不可放弃化妆。

4:我们不能随着时间流逝而任由自己的模样越来越老。

   无论男女,对美的追求是人的本性体现。不过愤世嫉俗者也说,化妆品商人卖给我们的是希望之瓶。
