Does makeup give women an unfair advantage in dating?

Does makeup give women an unfair advantage in dating?

Think about it. Plain looking girls become hot. That means there's more attractive women than attractive men. Thus, the average woman's standards get higher.

  • To an extent, yes. It's easy to pull a "natural" makeup look that appears flawless and minor, yet really involves a TON of makeup. I've done it myself, and the difference is astounding.

    Also, for the women claiming that only idiots think women with dark lips and eyes and all the makeup look natural, I'm pretty sure that's not how most men think. It's reasonable to be shocked when you get used to a person wearing makeup, and then they take it off to show something completely different. And again, yes, makeup can really have transformative abilities depending on how you wear it (some girls I know don't change a lot, others look like different people entirely). It all depends on the person, though frankly, part of why I don't wear makeup is because I want to love and accept (and thus be loved and accepted) for what I really look like, my natural beauty, as opposed to coloring on myself with chemicals and wasting a ridiculous amount of time on something I'm going to wash off in a few hours.

  • A little but I don’t think that most women transform into something that different. I’m not a big fan of makeup but I wear it because I feel like I look tired/unprofessional without it. Weekends are usually makeup free.

  • Yeah. It's obviously an advantage. I'm not sure why so many people are pretending it isn't. You can literally make your face look more appealing. The contrast is like a guy could pretend to have a college education, or pretend to have a house. It's something that increases value with minimal effort with instant effect. I'm totally for makeup. I prefer women do wear makeup. But it's obviously an advantage. I don't care that it's an advantage. But it is clearly one.

    Guys technically "can" wear makeup. It's true it's not against the law. But it is against social law. And, it is not a "masculine" thing to do. So even were a guy to wear makeup to enhance his features, the fact that he feels he needs to resort to that would make others look down on him, male or female. It is simply not feasible for males to wear makeup. I'm surprised we need to point that out.

    But if we want to say social pressure means nothing, then okay, then social pressure means nothing for women who feel like they "have" to wear makeup. No. Clearly you do not, if we use that same reasoning. It is not against the law for you to not wear makeup. I'm sure those same women will use social pressure as an excuse later for why it's unfair that women are expected to wear makeup. You can't have both ways, lol.

    Anyway, end of the day, it doesn't matter what advantages others have. The only thing that really matters is to improve yourself in what ways you can and grow as a person. There's a lot of things that simply "are". And the only thing you can do with those is accept them and find a way to adapt.

  • Not at all.
    If anything, the advantage goes toward men: Men don't have to spend hours (and money) putting on makeup to go out to spend time with women and men don't have to deal with society judging men on whether or not they wear make-up.

    Even if say a woman spends just 10 minutes a day putting on makeup.
    In one week, that's 70 minutes. That's more than 1 hour a week. If we're generous and round it up to 1 hour a week, that means women spend 4 hours a month just on applying makeup. If we extrapolate that to one year - women spend 48 hours a year putting on makeup. That's 2 days in a year women spend putting on makeup. In a decade, women spend 20 days putting on makeup. In half a century, women would spend 100 days putting on makeup, that's nearly a third of a year.

    I'd gladly take the "disadvantage" of being able to show up barefaced to work, on a date, or anywhere without people questioning why I didn't put in any effort into my appearance.

    • I think the two men who downvoted have never seen a women without makeup before.

    • ChronicThinker
      Nobody thinks that makeup is what actual women look like, at least most men don't. But the fact is that you can't tell what a woman looks like without makeup if she's wearing makeup (duh!).

      Imagine living in a society where ALL men wore masks of handsomeness, wore fake expensive clothes, and had padded muscle suits on. In this world, you meet a really nice guy, you have a few dates, he invites you over... and then it turns out he lives on minimal wage, is ugly as sin, and has the body of a geriatric.
      Would you feel it fair if we said "well, you knew what you signed up for! You KNEW that wasn't his face!"

      Of course you knew he was wearing a mask, and maybe a bodysuit, and maybe fake expensive clothes. But it could have been that he was handsome under the mask, he could have had a realtively good body, and he could have been relatively successful. The thing with makeup is you can't extrapolate the girl's actual looks from what she looks like in makeup.

  • An ugly girl in makeup is still not as pretty as a naturally pretty girl with or without makeup. Heavier makeup and prosthetics may be a bit unfair online, but they stand out pretty badly in person. Most men dislike heavy makeup.

    If anything, plastic surgery is the only unfair thing in beauty these days. When you can even change your bone structure... you're messing with natural selection right there.

    In either case, both men and women are able to use these things.

    • @gothgirl997 You assume that attractiveness is a bell curve model. In fact, there is no reason to believe that. An ugly lady who will screw anyone and has 8 kids will have more say in the gene pool than a 10 who has 1 kid or no kids. The same can be said in reverse. 10's could outnumber 5's by 100 to 1. Attractiveness is only really universally measured in symmetry and general health.

      As for makeup changing the point scale... It's a bit true. Most men agree I'm a 7-8. In makeup and heels most men agree I'm an 8-10. It definitely alters how many men are attracted to you in that moment to some degree.

      Girls can get men with money and height as well. A lot of men love that I am tall. Some men have a short girl fetish. Most men love money.

      Were you assuming those men only got women due to being tall and well dressed? All I hear is healthy and takes care of how he looks. Makeup is in the same category I would say.

    • @TripleAce Okay, a darkly lit bar or club makes it a definitely advantage. Especially with all the drunk people around. Brings to mind the term "coyote Ugly" ha ha ha. It definitely would give her an edge in one night stands.

      I don't know that I would say these women expect a higher quality of man. I see plenty of women put on makeup to go out, then they end up with a pig.

  • Yes it does. A lot of women think they're above most guys, when without makeup they look like shit. That's why I encourage guys to use whatever means they can to make themselves more attractive. Girls do.

    • "Makeup is so freaking obvious. It doesn’t make anyone look better unless they had bumps or pimples."
      Bullshit.
      I know plenty of 5/10 girl who looked like a complete bombshell after just putting on a bit of white foundation, some red lipstick, and eyeliner. Red lipstick in general can propell an average looking, 5/10 girl to an 8/10 REALLY easily. Well, at least for white and Asian women. I don't know what color works best for black women.

      "Guys think it’s hot but then want to call it deceiving when the girl takes it all off. "
      YES. THAT IS THE BASIC IDEA BEHIND DECEPTION. That you are tricked into getting with someone who is less attractive in reality than she appears with makeup.
      Imagine buying a car that looks like a Ferrari, paying as much for it as for a Ferrari, and then finding out it is a 40 year old Lada from the inside. Are you, the buyer, the one at fault here?

    • "You should know that no ones eyebrows are THAT perfect"
      How should we know?
      1) You can barely see women WITHOUT makeup at all, so the standards are all over the place.
      2) Why couldn't someone's eyebrows be perfect?
      3) Who the fuck cares about eyebrows? Haven't you heard this classic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JS7NRRCvmKM

    • Watch the first girl closely, after she's taking off the makeup her eyes move farther apart. Those are two different girls. This is fake.

  • Not really. If you look at it from that angle, women are really only painting themselves into a corner, because at some point the makeup will have to come off anyway. If looks really matter that much to you, go for girls who wear no makeup or natural looking makeup.

  • I don't think it's about the make up at all. I think it's the fact that using make up shows a sign of effort. Using make up (wether minimal or overdone) shows that a girl cares about her appearance to make the effort. My ex preferred me natural faced but always appreciated the extra effort for date nights etc.

  • Im sure guys can tell if a girl is wearing TONS of make up, so hopefully they would realise that she would probably look different without it.

    • Wait, so it's OK if she wears a lot because then it's not an advantage... but if she wears only a little, and it isn't obvious, but it still enhances her look, it's NOT an unfair advantage?
      Wut?

    • She was talking about the difference between wearing a lot of makeup and just a decent amount of it. She meant that wearing a lot of makeup changes your appearance drastically compared to a decent amount of makeup

    • @Naruto_Uzumaki Yes, but the question wasn't whether your appearance changes drastically, but whether it's improved. Even a small amount of makeup can drastically improve your looks, while not changing your fundamental facial structure and looks. So in fact small amounts of makeup, AKA "natural" makeup, is MORE unfair than industrial amounts of powder on your face that's blatantly obvious.

  • That girl isn’t attractive in whether picture. Makeup doesn’t help everyone. If you look like a totally different person without then yeah it could be very deceiving. However, hopefully you don’t expect all women to look like they do when wearing makeup.

  • Most people going on a date, and mainly on a first date, are trying to look their best. So, while girls put make up on, do their fingernails and hair, guys will also try to fine tune their looks also,

    The big awakening will undoubtedly occur if there is more to the fist date in a public place and that will be the case for both parties.

    So, yes makeup may give a woman a certain advantage but she will also have to realize that she will not always be able to hide her cosmetic disadvantages behind a mask. The same applies for a guy. He will not always be able to flex his muscles to contain his little growing pot.

    Either you accept the way that nature made you and be happy to be healthy or then you don't and try to hide the small flaws which nobody really cares if they really love you.

  • To an inexperienced male, yeah it's going to fool him.

    To an old fart like me, I look at makeup the same way I look at her bra, and shirt. The push up bra makes em less saggy, it's covered up... I can get an idea of what's under there, but... you'll never know for sure until you see it.

    Makeup is a painted on mask, clowns do it, warriors do it, performers do it, people do it for Halloween, and a lot of women do it daily because they feel the masked them will attract the attention the real them might not... other's literally do it out of self-esteem issues (the makeup gives them confidence).

    But yeah like I was saying to the untrained eye, you'll get fooled. Add distracting music, darken the room, add some bright flaring lights flashing all over, and add plenty of alcohol (I'm talking about a club here), and you might just not notice that she's actually a pizza face (zits), because it's all covered up under her 'foundation or concealer,' or whatever they call that shit.

    All I know is it smells like grounded up rocks mixed with thick oils... can't be good for their skin.

    If we pay attention we can see if a woman wears a lot of makeup. For me, a ton of makeup is a turn off. A small amount, and more natural look is more of my preference.

  • No. Why? Because guys chase girls "on the curve." In other words, they go for the best-looking girl that they can get. So... If all girls use makeup (not true, but to simplify the equation) then they ALL move up equally. There is no actual advantage except perhaps to the lesbians, because they can now attract a "prettier" girl than they would have before makeup.

    Think of it this way:

    Suppose I give everyone in a locked room a $1 coin to buy a Coke from a Coke machine (we'll assume everyone drinks Coke) and each can costs $1. Everyone gets one can, right?

    Now suppose I give everyone in the room a $5 bill, but I raise the price of a Coke to $5... everyone still only gets one can. There is no real change.

    I wish I could put a drawing here, but imagine two "Bell graphs"

    Normally the boys' graph and the girls' graphs (of attractiveness) would overlap. If you "push" the girls' graph to the right, it LOOKS like the most attractive guys end up with less attractive girls, but in actuality, they simply go after "more attractive looking" girls, and each guy "down the line" (of attractiveness) does the same, until everyone ends up with exactly the same person that they would have before BECAUSE the sex ratio (boy/girls) is almost exactly 1:1.

  • Isn't she still wearing makeup in the 2nd photo.

    And if you mean advantage in terms of being able to be effective in attracting men? Arguably yes. But for women who don't wear make-up, it can put them at an even further disadvantage than the average man, due to the Beauty standards we tend to chase.

    I personally can't say much in terms of that because of the way I work, but I'm not for or against make-up because I don't use it, but who said I can't use it? If you want women to think you don't have acne, go ahead, wear makeup, nobody is stopping you. If you want to use makeup to blacken your eyebrows, go ahead. Nobody is stopping you. The only thing that's stopping you is the fact you want to attract people, yet accuse others of cheating / having an advantage based on their gender, when police won't show up if you cover your cold sores with foundation.

    Self image is one thing I can be concerned about personally, but overall, nobody should really care. If you see yourself as someone who doesn't need make-up, power to you. If you see someone with make-up as "having an advantage" then what's stopping you from doing the same?

  • Make-up can do wonders, yes. BUT... the problem is if you only see a girl with make-up on the first few dates and then see her without it and there's a big difference in her looks, it becomes awkward.

Most guys like makeup so I don't see why we should complain about it anyways. There's girls who go without, and it's not like you can't see her without until you're married. It's an advantage, yes. But it's not that big a deal.

  • I don't think so. But I look deeper than the skin. But if you are asking if men should be able to wear makeup I say why not. If your laying down some foundation should not be that bad. But I am not to sure about doing the colored eye lids. But that's just me. If you want to wear makeup then knock yourself out.

  • Luckily I can tell about a persons actual physical appearance as opposed to cosmetic ones.

    Such as their posture, aspect ratio, how they walk, facial features, arms etc.

    So it don't fool me ;-)

    A healthy fit body is a beautiful one

  • I guess so if you're talking about women being able to hide their imperfections with cover up whereas men have to be real.
    Otherwise I usually think some women look better without makeup.

  • yes nowadays it does these makeup artists are amazing they can take a woman that looks like nothing and make her look like Miss America and then when you get a home and you take the makeup off she looking crazy so yeah I think it's an unfair advantage more like false advertisement LOL

  • The polls look exactly how I thought they would. Also, yeah. I’ve seen some decent girls glow up with makeup. But most highly attractive or unattractive girls still look the same without it.

  • Easy way to tell if she's ugly underneath all of that bullshit.

    Look at her up close. Its like going from a 480p television across the room to 2k definition up close. You can see all of the marks, smudges, splotches, eyelash gunk, overdrawn lipstick etc. If you see too much of that shit on her face. Definitely ugly.

  • If that's the same chick in both pictures, I would say the makeup is an unfair DISadvantage because, sooner or later, home boy is going to figure out he didn't get what he paid for, and he's gonna be up there at the fuckin return line Q-U-I-C-K!

  • Yes but no...
    It is available to all women so it is even on that and what makes a woman appealing to a man is not really the same as what makes a man appealing to a woman in a general sense of that anyway so it is not really an advantage since me. Could use it but it just wouldn't give them much

  • That tends to be partially countered by how makeup can be a source of insecurity for girls.

    Think about it..
    How many "I can remove 90% of your 'beauty' with a towel" statements have you seen in your life?

  • Blue anons are the saviors of Humankind!

    Does makeup give women an unfair advantage in dating?

  • Too balanced the number, I expected more No, furthermore here are the girls who looks to be more rational.
    "You dont have to be faster that the lion, just faster that the other bree"
    It means I dont compete with her, I make it with the others guys on her enviroment, furthermore, it means that we are more visual and they know how to use it.

  • I have seen women with too much makeup, or they dont know how to use it right. So, if you use it correctly , then it does make you more attractive. I would say most women are a fright without it. It also depends if you have seen them with makeup, then without it will be negative.

  • It's not unfair but it is an advantage. Physical beauty is the first thing people notice. That includes clothes, hair, shoes, and how clean it all is. Of course, looks get you as far as the "hello," and then it's up to the person's personality to carry them through.

  • I use makeup. Therefore, no. Makeup gives a person an advantage/disadvantage (depending on who you ask). It's just that most men are too dumb to realize that a liquid concealer, some blush and a little mascara makes a man hot to.
