If you're a guy did you ever have a girlfriend or girl friends who used too much makeup and tried talking to them about it? How did it go?, girls how do I talk to my friend/best friend about her using too much makeup ? This is kind of a sensitive subject to talk about and could ruin the whole friendship, I've seen frnds lose each other because one frnd tried to help and the other girl claimed her frnd was jealous that's why she criticized her >.> !
I used to have a problem with this. I always put on a little and thought "wow that looks so good, just a little more will be amazing!" I appreciated when familiy told me it was too heavy and now I wear a lot less. Keep in mind she may be self concious about some percieved flaw (ie maybe she thinks she has bad skin etc) and wants to cover it, or maybe she just thinks more is better like I used to.
To be honest, you should be very careful how you go about this. Sometime when you guys are hanging out or getting ready, ask if you can do her makeup and give her a lighter look and then tell her how amazing she looks. I wouldn't just blurt out "you wear way too much makeup!" that could get awkward or she might get offended.
Whatever you tell her she probably wouldn't listen...Most that wear too much don't listen and think they look great.
Why would you tell her that? If it's not hurting anyone then leave her alone. Maybe she likes the way it looks. Maybe she likes to look glamorous and put lots of makeup on. Not everyone digs the natural look. If I was her, I'd get offended.
don't tell her. it's not really your business and she probably won't listen anyway.
