My mom wont let me wear make up. Im 17 and applying for colleges. Im smart, have good grades, but she says its unlady like. Whats up?

I'm 17, I have a 4.2 GPA, I'm applying for college, I'm not leaving for collage (my mom forbade me going away for college), my only friend is a girl in Finland, I have no boyfriend and my mom forbade me from dating until I'm 18. She is INCREDIBLY controlling. She even judges the kind of music I like and forbids me from listening to certain things too. y mom has many MANY other issues which I will not be getting into rn, but please keep that in mind. Just this past Halloween I did my own make up for a costume and I LOVED it. Now for the for the days after (mind you only 3 days) I'm experimenting with different looks, and I actually like how it's been turning out. I think I look pretty... which I often don't think about myself as often as I probably should. Now this isn't full face or anything crazy. This is paint, bc she doesn't want we to use eyeliner, and eyeshadow. She even BOUGHT me the eyeshadow kit. To explain what im wearing, it's blue eyeshadow, white paint as eyeliner with a small wing, and snowflakes on my cheeks. She face timed me earlier in the day and said I looked "cute and sparkly" and I was so happy. My mom is a very judgmental person so this meant a lot. Cut to her coming home, she is now saying that "we need to have a talk" about the make up and I look "un-lady like" and "thats not how girl behave". Now personally I think this is a load of sh! t and she need to stfu. But bc of how she is it's either, bow down to her royal highness and kiss her ass and obey her every command, or death. Im not being dramatic either. When she gets made she goes nuclear. Screaming, hitting, kicking, threats. Awful is an understatement. Now that I'm older im tired of her bs. I wanna know, should I stand my ground and tell her no, this makes me happy and I like it, or should I just cave like usual?
