In a recent discussion with some friends of mine, someone said that women are the uglier sex, appearance wise. They meant that men don't usually wear makeup, so they can't do much to change the way they look. So if you see a guy who is super hot, then you know he's naturally that hot. But with women, it's different. The majority of women use makeup, and they use it to enhance or completely change their features. Usually when the makeup comes off, the girl looks a bit different, maybe not as hot as before.
I pretty much agree with this statement when it comes to me. I don't really wear makeup, unless I'm going out in the evening, and when I do put it on, I think I look quite different :o

I don't think it's about the gender, but the expectations society puts on certain genders. I think those expectations go back to primal things where the man is the provider and the female attracts the mate and has physical traits that suggest optimal childbirth and care.
For guys, it's acceptable to have imperfections in your face and stubble because you can still have "rugged good looks"...in fact I bet if a guy worries too much about his face and overall appearance he'd be labeled as a nancy boy/metrosexual. All these stuff I hear about how "manly" it is to have a bushy beard and not having a strict skin care regimen basically encourages you to not care about your appearance so much.
For girls, it seems you can't pull off any cellulite or discoloration in the face without people taking note. Most of the lowest blows you can deal to a girl involve insulting her appearance or weight, and they always take offense. What's really sad? I saw an ad for teeth whitening with some woman narrator saying: "He's the father of your children, your husband, your soulmate...but first, he has to say hello"...so if you don't have white enough teeth he's not going to want you?Those kind of messages infiltrate the female mind even in a minor subconscious way.7
