What makes girls wear so much of make-up ?
I have seen extremely pretty girls wearing make-up when they look so good without any make-up ? Why is it ?
What is their reasoning behind that ?

I think it has partly to do with what they are fed in TV and magazines. I know some of the girls, I see and talk to that wear a lot of makeup, read Cosmo, or Vogue, those kinds of magazines. Those magazines pretty much make people think that what they see there is normal. And if you are normal you will conform into looking like the people in the magazine or tv. It also depends on the social group you are in. I rarely see my friends, so I usually just go with only mascara, I could care less if someone doesn't like how I look that day when I go to college. If they don't they can turn away. I may not be the most beautiful, but I am not going to spend 2 hours in the morning getting ready to impress someone who doesn't like me anyway, or is only going to like me for my appearance.
Some peoples friends are highly critical, and you feel bad when you are around them. Now I wouldn't be friends with people like that long, but sometimes it takes a while to get out of a situation like that. Perhaps it's peer pressure. Some girls nit pick other people because of their 'flaws' and say that a girl should wear makeup. Or they tell the girl they have to wear makeup, or it's expected because everyone else in the group does. Who knows.
I stopped reading those girlie magazines a long time ago :P They do take a toll on your self-esteem and are usually a waste of money anyway, because half of it's ads. And the magazine costs 10 bucks!0
