They included safety reasons for airline workers, or being unable to see make-up properly for women working in the beauty sector.
Lol, yes because when you need glasses and work in the beauty sector it is so much easier to see when you are forced to remove them...
Add-on from someone who works for an airline: was legitimately told in all seriousness by the airline that being required to wear makeup was a safety issue. To paraphrase, “If the captain calls with worrying information about an emergency, then the blush and lipstick will keep you looking normal and calm if the blood runs out of your face, and eye makeup will draw the passengers’ attention to your eyes!” Whereupon I asked why men were expressly forbidden from wearing makeup in the same line of work, if it’s such an important safety issue, and the manager immediately changed the subject. The double standards are absurd in some industries.

I've started to see anime creators as the progressive liberals of their fairly conservative society, kind of like how hollywood tends to take progressive stances on stuff (not always, but you know what i mean). they project the world as they want it to be in the hopes of inspiring others, not projecting it exactly as it is.
i would say they are successful to that end. i've found pretty great inspiration in anime (in the better series at least). it makes you consider that the world could be better with the right amount of effort
