I saw this well known blogger wirte a post expressing his opinion on makeup and how he thinks women should be banned from using it because its false adveritsment.
He used these photos ^^ to back up his claims of it being "false advertistment" and in his words women who wear makeup are leading men on and setting them up for disappointment when they see the "real deal"
How do you feel about this? Do you think makeup is false advertisment?
This irritates me. I am a girl who very rarely wears makeup, only on really special occasions, but that does not mean I am against makeup. And I do like to stick up for the girls who do wear it, BECAUSE WE DON'T WEAR IT FOR MEN! Girls wear makeup because THEY want to. They don't wear it to impress guys, they wear makeup for their own satisfaction, for their own happiness. Maybe they just wanted to look different. Maybe they just wanted to try and spice up their look. They do not wear makeup to purposely lead men on, they wear it for themselves. Plus, makeup doesn't fully change their look. Yeah, it can definitely enhance features, but it doesn't change what you fully look like underneath. Men need to stop complaining about women who love to wear makeup, because they claim it 'leads them on,' because they weren't wearing the makeup for the dude in the first place, they were wearing it because THEY wanted to.
Its not false advertisement because you don't buy or own women, we are not objects. Any man who runs when he sees his girl without makeup doens't deserve her. You have to be stupid to think girls actually naturally look the way they do when they have makeup on. Thats like saying pictures on dating sites should be "banned" because they're hardly ever accurate, but no, because we're not in a dystopian society
It isn't false advertisement just because guys can't understand that girls look different without makeup. Also, no one has the right to remove a woman's basic rights to present herself however they want because they see them as objects to be advertised.
I feel that attempting to ban something so harmless is silly, pointless, and intrusive. No one's getting killed, trafficked through a sex industry or anything crazy like that. -_- I only think that makeup is false advertisement if the woman is so insecure that she legitimately tells a guy that "she woke up like that" ;P or actually tries to claim that her eyelids naturally sparkle with smoky shimmer.
Yes it is a false advertisement. But at the same time, if women didn't have that pressure to loo gorgeous all the time and were not expected to look like top models, then they would probably not wear so much makeup.
DON'T touch my make up!!! It's false advertisement only if you wear a ton and on a daily basis. I'm confident with the way I look without make up but I still prefer wearing it, it makes me feel better.
I don't think that is ever gonna happen but personally wouldn't really care much as I only use make up when I get booked for a job anyways. I wouldn't go so far and call it "false advertisement" either because, let's face it, the average woman isn't exactly your MAC makeup artist. All makeup I usually notice most women on the streets wear is a bit of mascara & lipstick (maybe also some eyeliner) and that little makeup sure as he'll isn't gonna magically transform you into a different person.
When I wear makeup, it is for myself. If I want to not wear makeup it is for myself. If I want red red lips it is for myself. If I want green eyeshadow, guess who it is for? Me! I am not a walking advertisement for sex, so whoever thinks that women are just here to please ya can shove it. :)
Make-up makes people feel good about themselves, why should something like that ever be banned? I love wearing make-up, it makes me feel beautiful and sexy, and it's not false advertisement at all! Natural beauty is just as great, sometimes we just like to wear make-up because it's fun!
No. Because I love makeup. Applying it in the morning is actually very therapeutic and fun for me. You shouldn't judge people who choose to live differently than you. Is makeup really that big of a deal? There are so many other issues in this world and you're choosing to bitch about makeup?
if i didn't wear makeup people would think I'm a zombie! one time i went out of the house, without make up on, and i had people coming up to me like "omg are you ok? you look really ill" or "are you ok? you look sad" etc etc i was like NO THIS IS MY NORMAL FACE! AND THIS IS WHY I WEAR MAKEUP, DANG IT! flibber me, i hope the magic stuff doesn't get banned
i don't see how wearing makeup should be illegal or considered false advertising since it's not like women sit in the mirror thinking how should i advertise myself.
it's actually rather sexist to presume that women are wearing makeup to advertise to men alone. well sexist or just selfish. for example my wife wears makeup more often when she goes out with friends to parties or gatherings simply because she wants to feel attractive
In some way that is true, but not entirely. Plastic surgery is more of what you are talking about. I use makeup to cover up my body tattoos and to highlight my face when I perform on stage. I would just let them be and make the best decision to date a girl and her personality anyways...
No, but I do think there should be a compulsory school subject for how to apply it.
We have enough stupid laws as it is. If someone wants to put makeup on or paint their face or anything it's their choice whether it makes them look better or worse. Don't pay attention to that idiot's blog, any idiot can write a blog And it's beside the point but those girls don't look good with makeup anyway
