Men; I Don't Care if You Don't Like My Makeup!

Men; I Don't Care if You Don't Like My Makeup!

In most recent times, I have seen plenty of gag questions and articles referencing the opinion of men about women wearing makeup. How much is too much? What colors? What about when the makeup comes off? Too fake, too bland etc bla bla bla.

Since I turned 22, I have been wearing full makeup everyday. Foundation, powder, contour, highlight, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, eyebrows, lipstick... yep I do a full face everyday. And guess what? It hasn't stopped guys from asking me out... It hasn't stopped me from living a full life and having my fair share of boyfriends. And when I woke up in the morning and they saw me without makeup, my relationships didn't end.

Personally, aside from making me feel better and look more awake, makeup is a form of art and self expression. I can showcase my ability to accentuate my facial features, and combine a series of products/color to vibrantly look "put together".

With this being said, I don't care if others disagree with makeup, or consider it too much. If a man sees what he considers a "hot" woman, he isn't exactly concentrating on the amount of eyeliner or eyeshadow she is wearing. Unfortunately, it is often the men that say that they like natural women, that end up with girls that look like made up dolls.

So yeah, men/women whoever believes they are a judge... some of us love the full face, and really don't need your commentary on whats right and not right. There are no rules. Focus on you.

  • I honestly dont know why women wear makeup if not for men or others?
    Like if you were to be in a room by yourself without anyone ever looking at you, would you really wake up early to pretty yourself up for yourself every single day?

    Lol I know I wouldn't. Hell, I probably wouldn't even wear pants.

      Personally I've played with makeup sooo many times even if I was just staying at home the entire day. If I was in a room all by myself, I probably wouldn't put on makeup every single day (I don't even really do that now). But I would still keep doing it regularly because makeup is fun.

    • I wear it to impress myself and others, and if you read the article you will see what I am saying. I never denied that. What I am trying to convey is that guys complaining about makeup, or saying they dont like it, or judging is something that I don't care about. If a guy doesn't want to talk to me or ask me out because I wear tons of makeup, I don't care. I am still gonna wear it and enjoy it.
      Read the article.

    • This is an opinion based website, they just list their preferences when it comes to makeup and women they like.

      No guy is going to go up to you in real life and tell you he doesn't like your makeup. If he didn't like it then he just wouldn't be attracted to you and not even give it a second thought. I read your article... it's just pointless.

  • Whoa whoa whoa, loose those t*ties there girl. You sound as if you re offended and acting like a dog that someone trespassed his yards fence or something. You say you see a lot of Q here about makeup etc. Those are GIRLS asking truthful guy opinions and not just GUYS that got up this morning and said: "lets flame those makeup clown bitches". You mentioned "you go full makeup every single morning and that hasn't stopped guys from hitting on you" Well. Grats? Have a cookie. Jk. You failed to mention that IN EVERY SINGLE makeup Q, every guy says "natural/light makeup over no makeup over clowns/heavy". There is a major difference between a nice makeup and a haloween costume. If you're really good at painting your face with all this concrete and still dont look like freddy cruger, then bravo as your skills are on point. What we DONT like is girls, pretty or ugly, that look stupid with all this makeup. And lets face it, most look stupid or like a pair of shiny lubed red light bulbs. Anyways. Dont be absolete. And grats again on your makeup skills. Teach others please.
    Btw: if you're so proud of your makeup-guy-trapping skills why go anon? ;)

    • I did find it a little strange that the article is about not caring what men think about girls wearing makeup --saying that not all our actions are based on pleasing men-- yet she used guys asking her out as proof her makeup is good.

      Don't get me wrong, I love the point of this article, just found that tidbit a but counter-logic

    • @TiredGirl123 i also saw that counterlogic that why i took the time to write such a long reply. "I dont care if you men dont like our makeup because i do it for myself and not you and to prove im right I've slept with many men and they didn't care about my makeup while banging me." Logic 0%.

    • yeah good comeback

  • And we don't care if you don't care if we like your makeup. :)

    Seriously, make up is like frosting on the cake - it's what makes it look appetizing.
    The 'stick is a little dark, but otherwise a big thumbs-up.

    Just don't squander your youth - it's your primary draw right now. By thirty you'll be starting downhill and having to compete with the girls your age now. And all the good guys got snapped up. It gets increasingly difficult to find a satisfactory mate.

    "Look, I'm so insecure that when people say they don't like something on me I start feeling inadequate, but since I'm not emotionally mature enough to *gasp* accept the idea that there are things on me that people might find inadequate I'm just going to tell them how wrong their opinion is and how I totally don't care about it. Oh boy that makes me feel much better already!"

  • You sound quite bitter... chill, no one is telling you to not wear full makeup, we're simply expressing our opinions.
    You say you put on makeup because it's a form of self expression, well expressing your opinions is also a form of self expression, so I think us men can, and should say it out loud if we prefer girls with little to no makeup.

    You do you, we'll do us... though please, don't compare makeup with are. I get it, modern paintings look like crap and people think everything is art, but saying makeup is art... yeah no.

  • Thing is, you're not getting it. Us guys don't DISLIKE the use of makeup in women. If anything, we're actually FLATTERING the fact that we really do like it when you're a-la-natural. As in, you don't really need any of that to look gorgeous. It's a compliment. You're free to keep doing it, and even more so if you actually like IT (rather than the benefits of).

      "Well girls who aren't interested in guys purely because they wear (a wig instead of makeup) something to make themselves feel good (and look better), don't deserve the guys in the first place if they're that shallow"

      I edited it to reflect guys who shave their head and wear a toupe or ig of some sort.

      I understand where you are coming from but I don't think that girls actually think this when it's on the opposite side and a dude is wearing a wig, only when it's their makeup, which is kind of disheartening, but whatever =/

  • its more than just the physical appearance that bothers a lot of guys, rather its more of a confidence and insecurity issue which many of you dont want to hear. I'm trying my hardest not to sound mean I really am, but you think that you aren't enough to impress others as you stated? you wear it to impress people. you feel as if makeup is needed because you are missing something? you can't just impress people without makeup? you aren't even comfortable with yourself and you can see that as me being judgmental, but I am the same as the guys who judge you based off how much they like your makeup. you are the same, with how you pick and choose who you like. confidence is a great trait which impresses others easily.

  • Well... Back in 1987 did you heard the PTL scandal with Jim Bakker? The reporters and general public made fun of late Tammy Bakker who wore a thickest pan cake make up. When Tammy was always in tears. Her mascara ran down so messy. Later in New Orleans french quarter, I see a small poster in any souvenir shops of Tammy Bakker in tears saying that you look like a shit. A big joke.

    My mother, now gone. When her make up is off... I can see her freckles are on like her old childhood pictures which she hated. Marilyn Monroe had lot of freckles covered up too. Wearing too much make up if you plan to nap... Sofa, pillowcase, sheets, and clothing can smear on it and hard to come off.
    Other option to wear light make up. I have seen some women too pretty with it.

      Read the article.

    • Do you want to not give everyone the same response?

  • I don't wear makeup tbh. And the reason probably sounds really strange but I don't wear it because it would make me feel insecure in a way. I've never worn it before so if I did then I feel everyone would be like "why are you suddenly wearing it?"... If it wasn't for this then I'd wear it every day. I do like the edgy look though, like in the picture lol. But full face make up does usually tend to look fake to me unless done right. Most the time it does look more like you're a made up doll.

    Either way, everyone has preferences and they're not wrong for that or wrong for voicing them. They're not trying to force you to do anything, just giving their opinion and there is nothing wrong with that. You should do what you want to do at the end of the day. If you feel confident when you wear makeup then that's great. If you feel confident without it then that's great. If you like how it looks then that's great. But some people do want other peoples opinions, that's the whole point of this site and you shouldn't be offended if it's not what you want to hear.

  • I think this is a tough topic, I also love using Makeup, but not to that point that i have to hid my whole face structure, YES some women do it to look good for others, some just do it for other HIDDEN reasons, and most of us DO IT FOR MEN, whether we like it or not.

    I sometimes want to look good for my boyfriend, BUT, I won't look good for him if I change my face completely, contouring here and there, adding this and that, highlighting up and down, YES... but MODERATELY, I want people to KNOW me when i go outside, I LOVE MY FACE, but make up to me is just something that puts some EXTRA EXTRA to it.

    But honestly, everyone is free to put as much stuff on their face as they want to, nobody deserves to be judged on that, because we should respect each others reasons and each others nature of thinking.

    Have a nice one <3

    I enjoy that I think my boyfriend gets it. I know he prefers my natural face but when I feel like doing make up he notices it as art that i worked hard on and still appreciates and compliments it all the same.

  • I wore white eyeliner yesterday (not the full shebang, just the wing) and some guy pointed it out and was like "the fuck is that what have you done" lmao. I was like "this is eyeliner, eyeliner comes in many different colors. Usually people wear black but I felt like going for a white eyeliner today". He didn't really respond after that 😂 probably had expected me to run off to the bathroom, crying, to take it off.

  • I agree. If it wasn't because of my lazyness, I would wear full make up everyday too, but most of the times I just put some eyeliner.
    I think those guys who think women should look natural are not worth it. They have pretty simplistic ideas. It's not that men don't like me because of make up, it's that I don't like men who don't like make up.

  • Good for you. I also wear makeup everyday, however my boyfriend likes me more without makeup. I don't wear makeup for my boyfriend or other guys. I think I look more neat with my makeup and I even admit, I am insecure about my acne, blonde lashes and brows, but I also actually like to do my makeup. It's fun to discover products and new lipcolours (I really like lipstick).

Just do it and don't have in a care in the world what the rest might think. The people who love you, and whatever man will (or maybe you currently do have an S.

    • Wha? She's putting a great deal of time and effort trying to achieve a look for... someone.

    • @zagor it could be for herself. Self love is important. And yes, sometimes we do dress for someone else. The two can get intertwined. More than once I have worn a ridiculous outfit because I liked it but no one else did but I didn't care.

    • OK, I guess I can't relate. I usually dress just enough to be comfortable, without small children laughing at me.

  • I can't wear any foundation because it makes me break out. I kind of wish I could. So I go with the natural look most of the time. Better plain than pimply!

  • Thank you so much for writing this. You've put everything I feel into words. I've had a boyfriend who literally flat out told me I wore too much makeup when I only use a light eyeshadow, pencil eyeliner, and some mascara. Meanwhile there are girls at my school who he thinks are hot and they wear a full face of makeup every day! Not judging them, makeup is fun to wear and put on and I love it to the day I die and beyond but guys think about it too much instead of encouraging the girl they like to do what she loves and look the way she wants whether that's with or without makeup. Thanks again for writing this! ❤

I'm also an artist and think of doing makeup as a form of art, just on a different canvas. You said all the things that I keep trying to get across to some of my friends about makeup. Of course, I ask my boyfriend if he prefers me bare faced (of course he's seen me bare faced) and even though he says he likes it when I don''t wear a ton, I still do. He knows that when I ask him what he likes, I'm ask purely out of curiosity. Never because I intend to change for him, which is something he actually finds incredibly attractive about me! As long as you can go without feeling insecure and keep your head held high, then you are beautiful. It's so much more attractive to do what makes you feel like you!
