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.
21d I see a lot of you are saying that wearing makeup means you're insecure. Furthermore, that if you're insecure you just should be happy with yourself and stop using makeup. However, girls are portrayed in media to always have flawless faces... you can't just tell someone to love their self when there's so much telling them not to. 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.
If a girl needs make up to be happy then she isn't a girl worth being with to me. It tells me she feels better, more confident, with an artificial look than her own skin, therefore, insecure about her looks.
Don't get me wrong. I have no problem with girls that wear makeup. It is an art just like drawing, painting, or photography, and some girls really get into it. While I love a girl that doesn't wear make up, it doesn't bother me if they do as long as it isn't excessive and obsessive.
Make-up damages your face, it's proven to damage skin, and the more you use it, the worse it is. How happy is it going to make you when you prematurely wrinkle? Well don't worry, those make-up companies will be happy to sell you anti-wrinkle cream for the next 40 years. Why do you think all these women complain that they start wrinkling up by age 29 while the average man keeps his looks into his 40's or 50's? Because men don't wear make-up. The more you use it, the more you'll need it and yet the less it'll help EVERY YEAR.
Reading the opinions below... It seems like such a touchy subject for girls. Non the less I know some girls prefer no make. Some love putting it on because they think it's fun. Some do it just to bring out the beauty inside. And some on rare occasions overdue it like older women that draw on their own eyebrows. Makeup is just materials applied to the face to enhance features of the face. girls waste money on makeup, clothes and shoes. Guys waste money on video games, cars/trucks and building muscles (which isn't cheap if you go the gym and protein shake route). It really doesn't freaking matter as long as the person that is putting the makeup on themselves is happy. As long as the guy lifting weights is happy with the end results. 9_9
Ok well maybe this will seem a little mean but maybe at least some ladies who have made bad decisions when they've been drunk will understand.
Nobody wants to go to bed with a 9 and wake up with a 5.
I don't necessarily agree that makeup is bad but that's the big reason. The other reason I can think of is that it inflates girls egos and makes them think they're better than men who they're really equal to. There's some truth in that but it doesn't apply to all women.
Regardless, I don't completely agree or disagree with these people so don't think I'm spouting my own personal feelings here.
I'm not opposed, but I do find it can be deceptive. I just don't see it as necessary, I'd find an average looking girl with no make-up much more attractive than a girl that looks gorgeous with her face drawn on like Mr. Potato head.
I personally hate makeup because it ruins the natural attractiveness of people. In all cases, it's lipstick on a pig. In the sense that lipstick makes you look like a pig with lipstick, regardless of whether you're a pig or not. Makes sense?
Also I dislike that wearing makeup reinforces the idea that you only look "pretty" if you're full caked. As if without paint, people were incapable of being attractive. Hmph. I would say this belief is detrimental.
I don't like when women use make-up to completely change how they look, like sometimes a girl does not look like how they do with make-up.
But do I don't like make-up on women? No of course not, it is completely fine and some girls look at it as art. But if it completely changes your look (you kinda have to be caked though) then I don't like that.
Because your happiness is based on a lie to yourself and everyone around you. If you're not comfortable and happy as yourself then you're not going to truly be happy by wearing a mask and pretending that the world is one big happy place. You can't fool yourself and you're not fooling anyone else. We all know you're an insecure sack of crap, and its not our job to make your life great, that shit's on you.
In my opinion, less is more more or less. If you NEED make up then I take that as a red flag you're not happy with yourself. Fake-up is a tell... I'd question what else are you hiding? Is that a push up bra also? How high are those heels? Seems like somebody is happy with herself...
My Bitch ex ( trust me it's valid) didn't wear it and she got bullied for it and she didn't want to give in even after school So she hasn't let it go and moved on even tho she would love it. My current girlfriend does but can't do anything without it because she has anxiety stuff I really feel sorry for her and hope she can learn soon she went to the corner shop without some so she is getting much better. Hope this helps
Without make up I can kiss my girl to check or other places, I like natural girls but this doesn't mean I am against make up. Actully I don't care at all, but if I can have my say I prefer no makeup because you also see the girl as it is don't get lied by makeup, also kissing etc is way better touching.
cause if some girls wear makeup and look good wearing it and the guys like it then all the other guys will demand the girls use make up so not using it seems easier to them they are simply jealous nothing more nothing less.
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.
1) It's a "Lie". When you go out in public, meet people, socialize or you're with your boyfriend, they don't see the real you. So, you "Surprise" Them if they see you without makeup. 2) People believe you may have a heavy reliance on makeup instead of just being proud of who you are without it. 3) It offends people, or mainly women, because it greatly amplifies the so-called standard of beauty to something unrealistic. 4) Some women look like clowns and it can be distracting or over exaggerated. 5) It's way too time consuming 6) Some people don't support makeup becuase of animal testing. I think I once heard that makeup or mascara came from bat poop or something. 7) Damages your skin overtime.
The only people who hate makeup (at least from what I gather on this site) are people who see those side-by-side dramatic comparisons or assume that if you wear makeup you're an automatic cake face.
They are the dudes who think that girls in natural makeup are what girls really look like without makeup. I've reversed image searched dudes who posted "pretty natural girls" only to find that the pictures they put up, the girls had makeup on. It's the same with hair colour, they say they like natural, then post a picture of a woman with dyed and high lighted hair. Lol.
I've never experienced people having an issue with make up IRL. It seems to be an internet issue for me. There's a false perception that just because you wear makeup, you must look like a different person without it. Now as someone who wears makeup almost daily, I do not comprehend how much make up a girl has to put on to look completely different. Maybe it's cause I don't do all that contour stuff but for me, I see no huge difference and neither has any guy I've ever been with. My boyfriend actually loves the fact that I make a effort with my appearance and to him makeup is no big deal. He loves me with or without. Makeup can only do so much.
I know that I bash it because I'm a hater. I'm natural. I've never worn make up in my life 1) because I can't, my skin is far too sensitive and 2) because I have no idea how to apply it. I tend to hate on girls who wear make up for two main reasons: 1) I'm jealous and 2) cuz of the negative traits associated with girls who wear make up (I. e they are usually mean, fake, High maintainance, etc). Sometimes I get jealous of girls who wear makeup, not cuz they are prettier than me, but because guys tend to choose them over natural girls. This is where my "hate" comes in because I don't know why a guy would choose artificial beauty over something real, especially if you don't know what that girl looks like under all that make up. as for the negative associations, most of the girls I know who wear makeup are usually very mean. They think they are better and prettier than other girls and it makes me angry because you could wipe away their "beauty" with a wet kleenex. So when I see a girl wearing makeup, I kinda assume that she's probably a bitch cuz unfortunately most girls who wear make up are.
I don't get it, I'm not surgically removing or adding bits to my face, so, I don't see how amateur contour is evil deception? And in the end, most women aren't doing there everyday face to attract a man anyways, so, ladies, who da fudge cares what hater guys think. There are make up less women for them and guys for you.
I think people don't understand that the average woman probably doesn't even do anything more than a simple one or two colors on the lid and lip product. So, if a person is being deceived by that, I don't think that person should be mating anyway XD
Makeup is a social status indicator. The less you can tell a woman is wearing the more "natural" and therefor effortless she appears. And as we all know by now women are expected to be gorgeous but never allowed to show the effort that goes into that process.
So if a woman wears what appears to be "too much" makeup or the "wrong" type of makeup we can see her effort or lack of effort, depending on your viewpoint, and look down on her for it.
I'm not all for it, but nor am I completely against it. If women feel more comfortable wearing no make - up make- up or full face o' slap then its their choice. Because Im a bit of a home bird due to lack of funds, I don't really get out much. So most of the time I'm a no make - up plain Jane and I don't care if guys don't find me attractive because of it. I only put make -up on when I can be bothered. I never go for full face o'slap unless I'm going out on special occasions. I want that wow factor. There are some products I hate using, so I exclude fake lashes, fake tan, fake nails or concealer. It sounds a bit cliché but guys will see my imperfect complexion. It may be a turn off for them, but any guy that tells a woman that she should always wear her make-up caked on isn't worth a shit.
I wear makeup most of the time. I'm a Beauty Therapist so I'm always trying new products and experimenting with makeup.
People will judge you no matter what you wear , what you look like, or how you behave. So you either control your own life or allow others to control it for you. I'd never feel intimated by other people's opinions.
Well it's because we as a new or devolving generation we have been brainwashed into if you don't look like this , you're altogether ugly which isn't true or that you're only pretty with make up. I mean what's better than the real authentic person? all people are doing is trying to do is to get you to accept how you look without filters or makeup. And maybe it could be because you're so beautiful without it, they wonder why. Me personally I only wear lipstick every now and then. Concealer, mascara, eyeshadow and etc I don't. So I'm not for or against it. But it's kinda all an allusion, do whatever makes you happy tho 💚
Fuck people who have something negative to say about girls who wear makeup. last time i checked you didn't need others approval to wear what you wanted. my thing is, why are you so worried about what I put on MY face? it doesn't affect you nor will it change my daily routine so bye.
I don't care if someone wears make up or not. I think with guys they worry if it's too much make up, and if you're hiding something. They don't care if you're already their girlfriend and you're getting dolled up. With other girls, it could just be jealousy.
With me, I have the opposite problem. I don't wear make up, and I am not attractive. I get so many people (always girls, guys have never commented) telling me that I need to wear make up to look better. I do what I can by being well groomed. I just won't want to wear a face full of make up everyday before I leave my place. I like getting dolled up for a night out, but that's as far as it goes. However, when I meet a guy for the first time I won't wear make up. I want him to see what he is getting because I know I am not pretty, and I don't want to hide under a mask only to have him disappointed later on. He knows what he is getting into.
well I agree that people shouldn't be mean but sometimes friends are just being friends when they say someone looks better w/o or with less. Its the same as if I have spinach in my teeth. maybe its embarrassing to hear but at the end of the day I'm glad they gave me the info.
I like makeup. Putting it on is very relaxing to me. I also kind of like the fact that people act a lot nicer to me when I wear makeup. I have bad skin and am very light blonde with normally invisible brows and eyelashes. A bit of foundation, some mascara and the lightest brow pencil available make a huge difference without me looking very unnatural.
It's intesting though to see how appearance really changes the way people treat you. If I dress nicely, brush my hair and wear a full face of 'natural makeup', people tend to flock around me and think Im nice, even when they're not looking to flirt. If I go bareface in a hoodie and shoes with holes in them, I just kind of get ignored and only my good friends treat me the same.
People don't like to mind their own business and they feel the need to always have something to say or someone to put down so they could feel significant. I don't wear makeup but I don't go around talking shit about girls or guys who do because I'm a good ass human being. That to some people is their cape, it's what makes them feel super and special. My hair is my cape. And for the low lives, their sour apple attitude is theirs.
I'm not into it but I tried to be one time because of peer pressure basically but it lasted one second and it was just mascara. I like to watch make up videos and I find it fascinating when girls create all these different looks especially with glitter. I don't bash people who wear makeup but just as some people do, there's also people who talk down on the ones who don't wear makeup. I feel like some people do wear it out of insecurity... mainly the full face every single day. There's no reason for it
My boyfriend doesn't like makeup at all. He prefers a real woman, as he says. No makeup, no weave, no fake nails, no fake lashes, no fake nothing. I don't think he ignores the fact that makeup can make someone feel beautiful. I believe that he just wants women and girls to be comfortable with themselves and to tell themselves "I'm beautiful" without any makeup or extra. And I agree with him.
I don't care what anyone says or thinks, I'm not letting anyone see me without makeup on. I don't even go check the mail without makeup. Putting my makeup on is part of my wake up routine, coffee, makeup and internet. That includes days when I don't have to be anywhere and don't plan on leaving the house. I put makeup on for myself, if you don't like it then don't hang out with me.
I think it's stupid. We don't go around telling people that they need to wear makeup. But maybe we should, if they have something to say than so should we. "Woow you look really dead today you definitely need some concealer to hide those dark circles"
Because not everyone finds it attractive and usually people who use their face like a coloring book don't have a lot of confidence in their natural beauty. The pictures above don't look bad, but some women go out looking like Barbie, but go to bed looking like a troll doll.
it's only an issue when it looks like a mask sitting atop your face otherwise, wear the makeup however you like but personally, once you reach my age it makes little difference whether you wear it or not
