If a woman is due to go to the mikvah on yom tov, is there any heter to remove/add makeup on yom tov? This is a very serious question because if a woman doesn't wear any makeup an entire yom tov, it looks suspicious among family and friends and she will be embarrassed because its obvious shes going to the mikvah. Is there any solution?
Please help. Thank you

Orach Chaim 1:114 and Orach Chaim 5:27 rules that one is permitted to use powdered makeup that is not long lasting on Shabbos and Yom Tov.
To the best of my knowledge this is the only Heter I am aware of.
