Why do women look so ugly without makeup on?

they look absolutely gorgeous when they're wearing it, but without it they just look ugly and plain. like without it, they just don't look pretty enough to have as a girlfriend. its like the only thing they're good for is having a one night stand with when they're looking their best, but not an ongoing relationship. why do they look so ugly without makeup, and where did the idea ever come from that women are supposed to be visually-appealing to men?

    • i don't appreciate you making light of this. it really is a problem. i grew up thinking women were supposed to look hot and now i become disillusioned. do you think that's a joke?

    • why do i care? maybe because i wish women were prettier?

    • much of a*

    • because i'd like a girlfriend who looks drop dead gorgeous pretty all the time, like when she wakes up in the morning, as opposed to only when she's wearing makeup, like the girls on this planet. that's why

  • thats so not true. an enormous generalisation. so many women look gorgeous without makeup on. for the ones who dont possess as much natural beauty, i mean what else do u want them to do? at least we try to impress... and then to know that this is what some men r thinking is appalling.
    where did the idea come from? well the answer is in ur question. we have to be visually appealing to be seen as more than being 'good for having a one night stand'... u seem annoyed by the mere fact that some women aren't as beautiful with makeup on.

    "[Without makeup] It's like the only thing they're good for is having a one night stand"
    "[Without makeup, they don't look good enough for] an ongoing relationship."

    "Where did the idea ever come from that women are supposed to be visually-appealing to men?"

    Because of men like you.

    • what the hell are you talking about? i sure as hell didn't start that idea. i'm wondering where it came from

    • I didn't say you started it
      I said it's because of men like you.
      men like you since ancient times had started it, and you're apart of keeping it well and alive today.
      now get some rest, love. you've got a big day of rejecting good girls tomorrow.

  • The most ironic thing is that I've had BFs tell me how great I look in the morning and with very little makeup on- those are the times I feel the most disgusting! If someone breaks up with you because of how you look, then they are shallow and good riddens. if the person is continually disheveled looking or doesn't keep themselves up, then that's different. But washing your face at night or not wearing makeup at the beach are normal, everyday things! Oh, and I can say that most of my BF's looked like crap in the mornings and some were not in the greatest shape, but that would have never been a deal breaker. It is obvious from your question that you are very young..

  • Your brain only got used to registering one thing as beauty and it rejects everything else.
    That's how some dudes in Japan can no longer be attracted to real-life women, because they've been watching so much anime that the only beauty their brain registers is the beauty of a 2D girl.

    This is not female failure, it's your abnormality. I'm sorry. =(

    • lol i find it funny that you think only guys in japan watch anime

    • Can't you see my avatar? I know more about the anime fandom than most of anime fandom. =D

  • Probably because the products we have to wear to deem is as 'looking good' to society also cause us to break out get spots, clogged pores, acne scarring etc. by the way have you came out of the closet yet? because it sounds like you think men are attractive looking but not females a lot of guys think girls look better without or with less makeup. JS...

    • nah, i'm not gay. i do think women are doable when they're dressed up and looking their best. but other than that... not so much.

    • what do you think of jessica alba and michelle keegan with no makeup on? ... see not all girls are 'mongs' with out it.

  • I definitely think you should put more thought into how you phrase your questions next time. The blunt way in which you have phrased this question is hurtful. It's very shallow of you to stereotype every girl as being extremely ugly. Not only women but also young girls struggling with self-identity, self-esteem, and confidence read what is posted on this website, and one carelessly untactful post could lead to a young girl hating herself or even harming herself. Please consider this when you post in the future.
    I pity you. Hopefully someday you will find a girl who you think looks beautiful regardless of what is on her face.
    As for your question, I think that's a personal preference. A lot of guys could care less if a girl is wearing makeup; they would still think that she is beautiful. Maybe you prefer a girl with makeup on because you usually see them with makeup on, and that girls without makeup look less nice than they did before? Makeup is a source of confidence for many girls because it blurs the imperfections that they don't want people to see them as. I find that when I wear makeup people are more likely to see me for who I am on the inside rather than the outside (they won't judge me on a "bad" appearance and decide to treat me badly because of that), but also that people are more likely to be nice to me just because I'm good looking. When I don't wear makeup I feel more comfortable because I know that people are interacting with me solely because they aren't judgmental people. I hope that I have clarified this topic for you a bit.

  • Guys like you make woman insecure and ugly without it. Sure some choose to wear a certain amount but when we don't wear any we are ugly and if we don't do it right when on we're ugly. I do agree that some woman put too much on and then look eww without it but not all. You sir sound like a douche.

  • I think most people who know how to apply makeup properly look -much- better with it on. Makeup is supposed to serve that function, so of course, we're going to look worse without it.

  • Some of them are natural. i dont wear make-up often i prefer to be real and i have light make-up sometimes but i have another question: you what, think that men look too attractive as you are and as they look like? answer is no, but girls dont seek only appearance in men, you guess? try to find beauty in opposite sex, it is exactly what women do, in other ways, why we would like you? do you think you have to many to be liked?

  • Lol, thanks. So I guess I should take my photo down since I'm not wearing any make-up and I look like a troll? At least I now have it confirmed. Anyways, there are girls who look good without it, I've seen some in real life. Make-up is used to cover some imperfections girls feel insecure about or to just have fun with "art" or to satisfy shallow guys like you. I'd rather be single my whole life than with a guy who thinks i'm ugly whenever I wear no make-up.

    • it made sense before but fine. the reasons why you and many others believe in your statement is due to out high expectations. expected values that has been fabricated by media of all shapes and forms but also the girls themselves; THIS is due to the visual comparison of the girl with make up (often caked) and her natural beauty. perhaps because you were presented the former at an earlier date the girl had created a high expectation which she is incapable to keep due to her "enhancer" being a temporary state and sold in a bottled there are also other reasons too that some may find offensive

    • it could also perhaps be that your subconscious have also fabricated this thing of beauty to create your perfect woman

  • Plain does not=ugly. Plain=plain.

    • When a woman looks like this naturally:
      cs406716.vk.me/v406716366/50e3/C9k34T-3nfw.jpg
      She usually becomes a model.
      Though, if you see when they first start out without makeup compared to later in thier careers without makeup they are unrecognizable. Makeup actually ruins your looks for the most part.
      In the book of Enoch, it states makeup was learned from fallen angels.

    • Besides, not all cultures treat makeup the same. For example, even natives wear it different:
      Here is a Brazilian Native American just wearing scribbles on her face.
