This artwork is an exploration of the daily beauty ritual in teenage girls. In the capitalist patriarchal system, cosmetics and other products aiming at improving physical appearance are sold to girl at an increasingly lower age. This insidious and subtle process is not without danger. I question the means used by the cosmetics and fashion industry to "hook" minor girls, and transform them into loyal customers from the youngest age. What effect does this system have on young girls' mental health and identity? Where do we draw the line between reason and excess, between beauty and mutilation, between care and violence?
