In the 1700s, Britain prohibited lipstick because it fooled males.

red lips, lipstick, makeup

The English parliament was so outraged by lipstick, of all things, that they attempted to outlaw it in 1650, citing the compulsion of painting, wearing black patches, and women's immodest attire. That endeavor was a failure. However, Britain did effectively outlaw lipstick in 1770. According to the legislature, women were duping men into marriage by using lipstick and other cosmetics. Parliament successfully linked lipstick to witchcraft and promised to annul any marriages caused by lipstick. Let's be real. You wouldn't have to apply lipstick as frequently if it were a type of witchcraft.
