I mean no disrespect when I say this, so all of you feminists out there, don't light the torches just yet, hear me out.
From my experience, I look at make up in my opinion as a way to try "heightened" one's looks. Why? Most women look much more beautiful with their natural face. I couldn't date someone who only appeared attractive with make up on. It doesn't really help, but yet society/ media advertise this like its coke cola. If that's the case, why don't men need it, but women do? Doesn't that sound sexist to you?
I really want to hear more of the ladies input, But dudes drop your personal opinion as well. Ladies, why do you wear make up? Do you feel pressured? Don't feel comfortable with your face?

A form of expression, sometimes their face is literally their canvas. I do not mean that in a bad way. Make-up can be a hobby/job/art.
Maybe they want to enhance certain things to show that side of their personality, perhaps if they like to be cute, they'll put on some blush and make their eyes appear bigger.
Another reason might be low self esteem - in this case, it doesn't really help if you think about it.
Some might just want to look a little better! Or if they wear concealer, perhaps show people what they usually look like!
I don't wear make-up because I can't be stuffed. I do feel pressure to wear make-up on certain occassions like fancy dinners, weddings... but tbh I don't think I would.
I'm sure my face could look a whole lot better with make-up but I don't think it's necessary and I kind of want people to know what I look like, flaws and all. :P2
