I've been improving a lot my makeup skills and learnt how to contour really well, do complicated eye makeup, apply fake lashes, nice matte lips... And I feel amazing and really confident. Thing is, people often judge a lot people with this kind of makeup, because it's "fake". Why is it so wrong though? What's the harm?
Here's an example of this "fake" look:

If that is what you are happy looking like there is nothing wrong with it. In fact if it boosts your confidence so much it has advantages. The downside comes from relying on it and not being comfortable with how you really look. It is also a pretty massive turn off for a lot of guys.1

I, personally, feel like it's more of a 'going out' look. But I don't think you can call it fake because everyone knows that your make up is to make you look/ feel a little different, or show a different side to your personality. It's obviously not what you look like without make up- but that's the point. It's not fake at all.1
