Its really crazy what make up and surgery can do. I'm not against make-up in any given way, but if you cake up your face often, you'd be losing the real natural you and start to feel naked and ugly without it.
Nothing wrong with a little bit of mascara, a natural lip color,, or a bit of eyeliner. You can possibly go in with eyeshadow in a special occassion. If its to hide imperfection, I'm totally not against it. :)
To answer your question confidence can also make a person very attractive
Everyone has their own opinion on what ugly and pretty is. So if I were to think someone is ugly many other people might think that their good looking. Makeup doesn't always provide that benefit on the heavy users, sometimes makeup just makes a person looks worse.
A lot of celebrities look like the average person the street without slap. They look like u and I, but with make up all of that changes. The celebrities that I have seen that look good without make up, are Hayden pannetiere, Miranda Kerr, jessica alba and Natalie Portman.
Yes, obviously that's the purpose of make up i.e. to enhance & modify looks.
It can change looks for sure but not the personality of the person :)
But again, yes with enhanced looks a person sure gets more confident for sure :)
However, when it comes to close relationships one can't remain with make up forever and in such cases it happens that the partner may be put off once the make up comes off and the transformation is as drastic as depicted in the pics :)
