    Thanks for the agreement about Orthodox. I am not sure what the distinction between 'Ultra' Orthodox and Orthodox is but at any rate I would like to assure you that your fears are unfounded. First, there is absolutely no prohibition in Jewish law against women wearing lipstick, makeup, etc. Second, even those few areas where the Bible talks about a death penalty such as breaking Shabbos, the Rabbis of today all agree that there is no Halachic authority to enforce a death penalty. That could only be done by the full Sandehdrin when it was operative in Temple times and that kind of authority will only be established again when the Messiah comes. Third, even in those times when the Sanhedrin did have the authority to pass the death penalty, the actual use of the death penalty was extremely rare and subject to many restrictions. There was one court that used the death penalty 3 times in 70 years and it was criticized as being a 'bloody' court.
