The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:

Physical Physical
You are covering up your true identity, putting on a false face for the public due to shame. You’re putting your best face forward. If others are wearing masks, a situation is not as it seems, you have trouble identifying people’s true nature, or you struggle with lies, deceit, or jealousy. Putting on makeup reflects concern about appearance and social presentation.
Emotional Emotional
You lack confidence in yourself. You’re trying to please others. Difficulty applying makeup suggests anxiety about an important social event. Smeared makeup shows failed attempts at presentation.
Spiritual Spiritual
The reality you’re dealing with is symbolic of another, deeper reality. You’re experimenting with playing new roles. Removing makeup shows a need to see yourself more clearly. (see face)

All transformations are invested with something at once of profound mystery and of the shameful, since anything that is so modified as to become ‘something else’ while still remaining the thing that it was, must inevitably be productive of ambiguity and equivocation. Therefore, metamorphoses must be hidden from view—and hence the need for the mask. Secrecy tends towards transfiguration: it helps what-one-is to become what-one-would-like-to-be; and this is what constitutes its magic character, present in both the Greek theatrical mask and in the religious masks of Africa or Oceania. The mask is equivalent to the chrysalis.

The mask, simply as a face, comes to express the solar and energetic aspects of the life-process.

    To dream that you disguise yourself with a mask reveals that you do not feel comfortable with your personality. Consequently, you hide behind an artificial element to become successful. Although the mask may protect you from others, this attitude leaves your true self on a lower plane. You must ask yourself why you put it on.

    It is necessary to gather your courage to be who you really are.

    A mask covers the true face and presents a particular version of one’s persona to the world. This is a symbol for the way in which human beings never quite reveal all of who they are, but there are masks that are presented to the world. This occurs in degrees of authenticity, and a mask in a dream indicates a stronger separation between what is being presented and the true identity that is hidden below.

    Consider the mask itself from the dream; if you know what it looks like, you will have a better idea of what you are trying to portray at the time of the dream. If the mask is being removed, you are stepping into a more genuine version of your self-expression.
