The first time Samantha Field was allowed to wear makeup was at a wedding in her ultra-conservative Christian community two weeks after her 16th birthday.
The bride was a friend around her age from the nearby Faith Independent Baptist Church in Niceville, a sunny northwest Florida town billed as “the nicest little city in the South.” It was a humid fall day in 2003, and Field wore a dress she picked out for $10 from the Waterfront Rescue Mission.
