Dream symbol Lipstick


red strawberry mouth, seductive, deep red, femininity, eroticism

A red mouth, reminiscent of cherries, has always been considered a seductive image of femininity for men. Many poems and songs praise red lips and in different forms lipstick was used in ancient times and in ancient Egypt. It emphasizes the beautiful shape of the lips and is probably very sublime in its conspicuousness.

Thousands of years ago even men used it, it was quite common that not only the female but also the male sex painted their lips. Nowadays, lipstick is more associated with female eroticism, wickedness and also self-confidence.

This dream image can again reflect many different things and therefore be careful and rewind the dream again to let important aspects flow into the interpretation.

General dream interpretation

Lipstick as a dream object represents femininity and its power, especially when it appears in a woman's dream, it represents deepened newly gained self-confidence.

But also in men's dreams, the applied lipstick expresses an extremely good self-esteem and vanity . Further considered this self-confidence, an exaggerated extent can take and in this regard the lipstick clarifies HOCHMUT and STOLZ. The person concerned feels superior, looks down on others and thinks that no one can hold a candle to him.

If you watch someone in a dream as he paints lipstick on his mouth, this illustrates that in waking life a person in the professional field or in the private sphere, could become or already is a competitor.

In general, if you see someone using lipstick, you can assume that this is symbolic of facts kept secret. This lipstick serves as a mask and these people do not pretend to be like they are in reality, but are pretending something. Or the dreaming person himself wants to present himself better than he is or has difficulty in communicating clearly and is hiding something.

If one sees himself buying lipstick in a dream, it is generally interpreted as an auspicious sign. The more makeup is bought, the more it indicates good luck. If one sees a lipstick print on a napkin, this dream image serves as an advice to exercise more serenity in everyday life.

Lipstick colors

A red lipstick represents passion, a confident woman. A purple lipstick indicates that the person is shy, but that it will disappear after some time. A lipstick that is pink symbolizes the longing for love. A lipstick that is black represents hidden feminine aspects in the dreamer himself.

Psychological dream interpretation

If you dream of lipstick on your mouth, this indicates that you want to hide something. In partnership, harmony and peace is overshadowed by swallowed words, or in other words, there is a lack of honest communication with each other. If you see others in your dream making up their lips, the same interpretation applies psychologically.

The lipstick also represents love that is only pretended or feigned, as well as the possibility that this dream symbol also indicates fears. Distrust and jealousy of the partner and fear that the image you have of your partner is not true and that he is only pretending. Or you also suspect a painful-bitter truth behind the beautiful and smooth facade. You suspect unpleasant truths beneath the beautiful surface.

Moreover, lipstick in a dream reflects the symbol of sexuality and sensuality. For a woman, a dream of a red lipstick means that she is more devoted to her feminine and sensual parts. For both man and woman, this dream object augurs sexual desire.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Analyzed spiritually, the lipstick illustrates the desire for beauty, which is seen as the femininity of the ruling goddess. On the other hand, this dream object also warns against deception.
