1. Make-up is such a total waste of time.
...and so are those video games you play, the sports you watch, the hours you spend on social media, those games you play on your phone, and so on and so on. Look, we could be doing meth right now, but instead we're standing in front of a mirror one eye half closed, trying desperately to get our eyeliner to look like twins instead of distant cousins...there is clearly far worse we could be doing with our time. Every body "wastes" time of whatever hobby or passion they love doing; you've chosen your poison, and this is ours! Can we live already?!?
2. I prefer the natural look
Okay, good for you, prefer all you like in your own world but what does that have to do with us? We didn't think by the looks of our big ass suitcase worth of every brand of make-up we can afford, that it was in any way unclear that we prefer to wear make-up and that's not going to change.
3. I prefer the good old days, where girls didn't wear make-up.
What good old days are those? Cosmetics are mentioned in the Old Testament—2 Kings 9:30 where Jezebel painted her eyelids—approximately 840 BC—and the book of Esther describes various beauty treatments as well. The use of make-up is also well documented in ancient Egypt and Greece.
4. Girls only wear make-up for guys
Look at the ego on you thinking our world literally only ever revolves around you. Sure, we do wear make-up when we're off on a date or going to the club, but we also wear make-up to go to school, to go to work, to visit with our girlfriends, to go to funerals, to hang out with our family, to walk the dog, to go to Starbucks...all because we just like it, and we think it makes us look and feel good. If you happen to notice, than you do because you have eyes in your head, but trust us, from what we know, make-up or not, you're going to notice a pretty woman so don't blame us for that! Obvious Side Note: if you're a guy who "prefers" a natural look, then shouldn't that indicate to you that we are certainly not wearing it to attract you...you know because you ONLY prefer girls who are natural...
5. Make-up is so unhealthy for you
Really kind of hard to take you seriously when we can see that string of cheese from last nights pizza hanging off your chin and you haven't been to the doctor or the gym in who knows how long. If you take care of your make-up kits and brushes, engage in a routine cleansing of your face before/after make-up, and/or buy more of the organic brands, make-up is no more or less unhealthy than the dozes of other things people are or aren't doing to their bodies (except meth. Meth is always unhealthy).
6. You're trying to fool people by wearing make-up
Wait a minute, let me try and understand this. You, being an intelligent man or woman capable of higher level thinking, thought our sparkly eyeshadows, or black lined eyes, our bright lips, our gold glows, and our eyelashes out to there...were natural? This is what got you shook? This?!? Newflash, if you picked up someone at a club or you went on a date, the majority of women are wearing something that is not natural to them. I mean, what's next, we fooled you as to our natural smell by wearing deodorant or we lied about our lack of body hair, by shaving? I don't see you complaining about those things!
7. You wear make-up because you're totally insecure
Yes wanting to hide one or two blemishes or covering up a scar is being "totally" insecure. I'm 1000% certain you don't grasp what "totally insecure" actually means because one's face is such a tiny percentage of ones whole entire body. Are you totally insecure for working out at the gym every single day or are you just doing it to help you look good and feel good about yourself. Alrighty then.
8. Look at (insert female celebrity), she's so beautiful and natural
Haaaaaaaa! So you ARE attracted to make-up looks!!! Every time so and so celeb is on a red carpet, on a magazine cover, on a runway, shows up at some club at 2am, is out walking the dog, they are wearing make-up. They have whole teams of experts that spend 2 hours literally trying to make them "look natural." And if they fail at the task or heaven forbid the celebrity actually looks human, right behind them are whole teams of photoshoppers who sit there as their job, and remove ingrown hairs, straighten teeth, remove wrinkles, stretch marks, and blemishes, re-color their skin, digitally add more make-up, make their hair look fuller, put their body on the body of someone else, all before their picture hits the stands. So when you're telling someone to look like this or that celebrity, you're telling them to not only wear make-up in order to look good, but to be someone they cannot ever hope to physically be or look like because it was created on a computer.
9. You look so different without make-up
FACE PALM. What would be the point of applying make-up, if after we were done, there was no actual discernible difference from what we looked like before? We'll wait...
10. You don't see guys wearing make-up to cover up their faces
I mean, did you want to wear make-up because nothing is stopping you. If you want to turn this into some sort of unfairness rant, we will personally drive you to the nearest make-up counter and even out the playing field. There are in fact many men who wear make-up. And before you go off into some stereotype about how they "must" be gay, every newscast you've ever seen with male anchors and every movie and television show with any males on it, has men wearing make-up and you think nothing of it...why...because there are whole teams of make-up artists who make it their job to remove under eye circles, freckles, diminish wrinkles and redness in their faces, and take out greasy shine so they are camera ready with the aid of make-up. In essence, they "look natural," wearing make-up.
