I decided to go for this one given the context (an article in a Funeral Director's magazine) i.e. the funeral/deceased part is implied. Thanks to everyone for their help.

funeral esthetics (or "aesthetics")


Explanation:
Here is a citation:

http://heavenlydoor.com/main/news/con_25.cfm

“THE CASKET:

It is important to remember that the casket is the last material gift the survivor can give the body which once was a beloved person. It can add greatly to the esthetics of the funeral setting and to the repose of the body.”

Explanation:
per ora non mi viene niente.
il Webster dice che 'esthetics" e' la fisolofia che si occupa del bello, e niente altro.
La persona che si occupa di cosmetica e'
beautician/cosmetician n 1: someone who sells or applies cosmetics 2: someone who works in a beauty parlor

E' chiaro che in italiano la radice greca viene utilizzata per "esaltare" questa professione, per rendere il riferimento ai morti meno trasparente...

saluti a tutti

p.s. Per farvi divertire, ricordo il primo romanzo da me tradotto in cui l'autore prendeva in giro queste pratiche dicendo "al funerale di mia nonna, mio padre portava un completo verde scuro, mia madre un vestito nero, e mia nonna tanto cerone e una bara di pino bianco..."
