Jezebel "painted her face" ( 2 Kings 9:30 ); and the practice of painting the face and the eyes seems to have been common ( Jeremiah 4:30 ; Ezekiel 23:40 ). An allusion to this practice is found in the name of Job's daughter ( 42:14 ) Kerenhappuch (q.v.). Paintings in the modern sense of the word were unknown to the ancient Jews.
