    Apathy, withdrawal, "turning off" feelings, excessive formality, "rationality/objectivity/detachment," explanation/re-framing, friendliness/accommodation, and distraction/overworking. I think to some degree I use self hatred as a defense.

    Humor, apathy, and reservation.

    I maintain a healthy swarm of pubic lice, but allow them to congregate atop my head and dangle from my stache and eyebrows.

    I use that impractical armor from female RPG games.
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    I don’t wear armor. I just have a shit ton of HP and regen.
    “ Rise up and raise the iron roof off
    Now, Rise up and riot 'til the bomb drops
    Now, Rise up the time is right to sound off, so
    Rise with me, rise with me, rise with me (RISE UP!)”

There are also behavioral tactics we employ, on an often subconscious level, that make us feel safe and secure. This, too, is armor - which you can't see until interacting. The aloof coworker everyone calls a bitch. The neighbor across the hall who can't do more than small talk. So, what's your armor?
    Your question is ambiguous. You mentioned hair and makeup shielding one from a threat, so I'm imagining how to get dolled-up for an unwanted date:

    Recently I've been realizing that abused children kind of overdevelop some kind of defense mechanism that continues to be prominent in their adulthood. Mine was tuning everything out and being a space case, and I still struggle not to be a space case to an abnormal extent today. My brother's was the opposite, paying close attention to everything and doing whatever he was told, and today he is more aware than average and feels like he needs to be in work environments where he's told what to do. Another person I know probably used being distant and withdrawn, and today is naturally more distant than average. Different people may use different things, but point being, in abused kids it seems there's always this overdeveloped defense mechanism or "armor" they later struggle to even tone down. It's not always a good thing that they developed it, sometimes it's something that's advantageous and sometimes it's not.
