    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.

    Oh, we're always all right. You remember that. We happen to other people.

    And I see fire, hollowing souls
    And I see fire, blood in the breeze
    And I hope that you'll remember me...

    I don’t wear armor. I just have a shit ton of HP and regen.

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 Another person I know probably used being distant and withdrawn, and today is naturally more distant than average.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.
    When life gives you flames, forge a sword and purify yourself like gold.
