I personally love makeup (you would go CRAZY if you knew how much $ I spend on good quality makeup) with that being said understand this..
1. Not everyone can do it properly 2 . No, its not because Im insecure, but because I love to see my full potential reached (by my hand) 3. Its just supposed to accentuate what you have and I LOVE that! (I dont have acne or scars but I do have some dark circles, and I love morphing into a beautiful butterfly) 4. Makeup is Art 4 me!
that shit isn't easy my ex girlfriend once asked me to do half of her make up whilst she did the other half so i could literally watch what she was doing and copy her and i still couldnt do it as well full credit to the ladies
Only type of "make up" I actually like on a girl is either for cosplay or if its war paint
Literally could not care any less. Well positioned dirt on your face is the least impressive thing in the world to me. But with that being said I respect that people enjoy doing this. And I respect that they do this for personal reasons and try to do it well. It's not my face so I try my best not to judge and if it makes you feel more confident with life then great. And that's why I keep my mouth shut and tell women they look beautiful when they do this even when I don't agree. But you asked for my honest opinion so here it is. I'd never force others to hold my opinions but if I could create an ideal world every makeup store would be replaced with fresh foods and water.
