A dream about applying lipstick often hints at a desire to stand out or be noticed. But the dream can be more nuanced than just that.

It can also suggest you're ready to express your thoughts and feelings more openly. Seeing someone else wearing lipstick in a dream can indicate that you're perceiving this person as confident or bold. It may also suggest that you're drawn to their charisma and expressive nature. In Both of these dreams, lipstick in dreams is often tied to communication, self-expression, and the impression we make on others.

Lipstick can be a rich and colorful dream concept to really clarify with certainty. To know for sure, I'd have to understand the dreamer's past and current mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of applying lipstick may reflect an unconscious yearning to enhance one's persona, a Freudian notion of the 'mask' we present to the world.

This can be a multi-faceted dream symbol though — It suggests an internal dialogue about self-image and the desire to influence others' perceptions. Witnessing someone else wearing lipstick in a dream, by contrast, could symbolize the projection of our own suppressed characteristics onto that person, a concept known as 'shadow' in Jungian psychology. It may also indicate a latent attraction or envy towards the confidence and allure they embody. Thus, lipstick in dreams can symbolize the interplay between our conscious self-image and unconscious desires or fears.0

Dreaming of applying lipstick signifies your spiritual need to communicate your inner truth and express your authentic self. It's a call from your soul to embrace your uniqueness and let your voice be heard. Witnessing someone else wearing lipstick in your dream, by contrast, is a spiritual reflection of your admiration for their courage to express themselves. It's a divine nudge, urging you to learn from their boldness and apply it in your own life. In both cases, lipstick in dreams symbolizes the spiritual journey of self-expression and the courage to be true to oneself.
