Make-up on Shabbos

Posted by: Anonymous, LA, CA on Feb 21, 2005

Also--clear liquid roll on lip gloss and specialized shabbos make-up may be applied.
Shabbat
(pl: Shabbatot). Hebrew word meaning "rest." It is a Biblical commandment to sanctify and rest on Saturday, the seventh day of the week. This commemorates the fact that after creating the world in six days, G-d rested on the seventh.
