Do you think make up is "lying"?

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.

  • I don't think it is lying but it does change you a bit - I personally prefer the light or no makeup which gives a more natural look.

  • Not necessarily. Some people just wants to look good or presentable no matter what regardless whether or not they are already good looking without make up

  • It's a complete lie.

    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.

    • Before someone complains, the difference is men expect and accept the lie, whereas women complain about the lie.

  • Like a hair color, high heels, a padded bra etc all can deceive.

  • Depends on the amount. Is it subtle and just giving a bit more attention to one or two good traits of your face? Then no.

    Is it full on masking rather than just a bit, yes.

    Make up just enhances what you already have.

  • No. I think a girl should do whatever makes her feel pretty.

    I don't have the best jawline (it's ok, but...), so I grow facial hair to just improve it a bit. To me, facial hair is like makeup. It's a little something extra to make you feel better.

    But girls don't have facial hair (usually...), so makeup it is :)

  • 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.

  • No I do not.
    Makeup is meant to enhance a womans natural beauty. The average woman does not have a the skill of a makeup artist to go from average to very beautiful.

    Makeup does not make you look like a different woman.

  • 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

  • Too much can be deceitful. But I think enough just slightly enhance features is fine. It's just too bad that women need to depend on makeup to convince them they're beautiful.

    • I was actually thinking of Jenna Marbles when I wrote this post. She looks completely different without make up, still pretty though

    • Lol she was my first thought too. She looks great with makeup, not so much without though but at least she has a great body and sense of humor to compensate

  • 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
