The school contends that the move to ban makeup and temporarily remove mirrors in the bathrooms was an effort to encourage the girls to focus on their studies and conform to the institution's "discreet" makeup policy.

The students have fought back by saying that "too little makeup can be just as bad as none at all." They also cited that wearing makeup gives them the confidence they need to be able to focus on their schoolwork in the first place.
