I know a few guys who say make up is "lying". they say that sometimes a girl looks like a completely different (more attractive) person with it so when they take it off, they are suprised and they feel they lied about their looks to attract them. What do you think?
I'm not a fan of the contouring that some / a lot of women do. You're legitimately changing how your face is perceived when you do that, which makes me think that you have some SERIOUS self esteem issues. THAT level of makeup IS lying in my book.
That being said, I'm not totally against makeup. I just like it in smaller amounts. My picture on here, for instance - I'm wearing some eyeliner and mascara. But you really can't tell, at all. Because I don't cake it on.
But the men who get offended because a woman is wearing eyeliner and mascara and some eye-shadow and calls it being "deceitful" are the men who need to get a grip on reality. If they can't figure out that women aren't born with eyeliner drawn on, then they need therapy more than they need relations with a lady.
Women always talk about men being fake and using their gift of gab to manipulate a woman into giving up their body, but they never seem to understand that dying their hair/colour contacts/dress choices/hairstyle choices/make up are the exact same thing. You're lying about what you really look like to attract a guy; you're manipulating him with your appearance to get what you want out of him.
To me, make-up is not lying, it is just changing certain features. Guys can't say that a girl is lying to them by wearing make-up, because the girl is not intentionally saying to herself "Oh, I want to lie to some guys today, so I am going to wear make-up."
Make-up does make girls look different sometimes, depending on how you wear it, but that is one of the reasons why some girls buy it. What is the point in buying make-up, if it doesn't at least make you look a little bit different? Guys can't be blaming girls for lying to them just because they are wearing make-up, that is just wrong.
it's not lying unless it's way overdone (which doesn't look pretty anyways if you ask me) - anything other than that I think it's simply enhancing natural beauty, and it's not my fault if a guy is stupid enough to believe my eyelids are naturally golden..
I don't think it's lying it's just not outing yourself out there. Whenever someone asks me I wear makeup I say yes because I'm just not confident enough to go without it. And if someone asks and you don't want to answer that's fine because your just not readytonout yourself out there. It's the same as not answering a personal question.
To an extent. If you weary a tinted foundation and some mascara and lightly fill eyebrows that's not fake, that's enhancing. But if a girl does the whol "highlight and contour" and spends an 30 min. On her makeup daily that is a lie
It doesn't necessarily have to be "lying" just covering a few acne scars or blemishes but in some cases some women look like a whole new person with makeup. Makeup does improve looks but remember no am out of makeup can hide an ugly personality
I enjoy wearing makeup. I don't see how I'm lying to guys by putting dark blue powder on my eyelids. I can't control how certain guys feel but I'm not gonna let the opinions of some stop me from doing what I love
