I feel like some people have really harsh views on makeup and totally bash people who tend to wear heavier makeup. (Or even in some cases, any makeup at all.) But honestly, if it doesn't effect you in any way and makes the other person happy... why be so mean about it?
The photo isn't mine or of me, but it's just an example.
Also makeup can damage your skin, but not to the extreme some of you are describing it. If you actually use makeup correctly & take care of your skin, you're fine.

1. Excessive makeup looks trashy, slutty, trampish, etc. Many people really detest that look on anyone.
2. Heavy makeup suggests the possibility that someone has difficulty accepting themselves as they really are, and that is a sign which portends potentially even greater problems.
3. Excessive make-up sometimes has the effect of misleading people about how you really look. Some of us place a big value on truth-in-advertising.6

It's probably jealousy. Many girls are very competitive against other girls and do not like it if they feel threatened or intimidated by another girl (if they feel she is more attractive than they are). I've also seen a lot of bitter men who seem to despise makeup, and I think that is probably because they didn't stop to realize that a girl will look different without it, so they feel like they were tricked. Either that or they're mad because women have an easy way to cover blemishes and make their faces more attractive, but it isn't as socially acceptable for men to wear makeup, so they pretty much have to make do with the cards they were dealt.3
