- yes i do
- no i don't
- kind of
- i'm a guy
I think it depends. If someone uses a thick layer of makeup in the whole face then yes, I guess it can be deceptive. But not common makeup like mascara or a bit of rouge.
Those pictures you put on - hell yes it is.
But what normal people put on - isn't.
(Piling on makeup so that people won't know what you really look like without it - that's deception. I wouldn't recognize any of those women if I only knew them with makeup on and saw them somewhere in town without it...)
It is only deceptive if the person is applying layers of make up.
I wear basic foundation and I still look like myself.
I don't understand why a lot of people say p*rn stars or celebs are gorgeous.
When really half of them without make up look like wet dogs like the ones shown above.
Make-up is not deceptive. What you've done is taken images that have make-up & photoshop & a completely different type of camera lens and compared them and photoshop is outright deceptive with the lens on the camera making a huge difference in how things look.
Well ya they are. But you know you say you want girls to be honest, yet you're so harsh to judge a girls looks. So you can't really blame us for using make up.
It's a two way street
And honestly I think in this day and age, if you see a celebrity at any kind of even or really any hot girl online and you don't realize she is wearing loads of make up and is photoshopped, you're just an idiot
There are different types of make up obviously. I think lipstick and mascara and stuff enchance certain features and usually make little difference.
Contouring and highlighting on the other hand can make a huge difference
But well once again, you can't blame us for doing it if most guys go for the heavy make up option 99% of times
The first picture shown was done by an incredibly talented makeup artist from the middle of no where. They also didn't just use the makeup you see at your local CVS, we're talking thousand dollar products, and hours upon hours spent on that lady! No normal woman has that kind of time! People who do change drastically with makeup like that can also afford all kinds of plastic surgery and stuff. Therefore the only people who change this drastically are either celeberties (who can also do a lot more than makeup), and one time subjects being used for a makeup artist's portfolio... Even your beauty guru co-worker doesn't look that different with makeup. And when people truly will look different with out makeup, you'll be able to tell, their makeup will look cakey/crusty, it will be obvious how heavily it was applied. Makeup is good, a little mascara and eyeliner can make a woman more confident and feel empowered, makeup also has a rich history and has deep roots in different cultures. You also have to consoder when some of these before and after poctures are taken... maybe that girl was having a really bad slump, she hasn't brushed her hair, showered, and she woke up two minutes ago, and the photo was taken in horrible lighting. I look a lot different when I first wake up compared to an hour later, I'm still groggy and my face is swollen. And if you're going to get upset about how decieving it is maybe we shouldn't blame the women for wearing it, but the people who make them feel as if they should wear it.
Absolutely not. If you think any of that makeup is natural the only deception occurring is your own stupidity. If some dipshit thinks my eyelids are naturally green I'm concerned for his mental health. Its a million dollar industry present in every grocery store across America, but somehow men are shocked to find out the average woman partakes in it?
By that same logic, clothing is deceptive because it alters the appearance. Tell me, are you terrified when people change clothes?
It's so annoying when guys do this. I wear makeup because I don't like the way I look without it. I've had acne since 5th grade, I wasn't allowed to wear makeup until 9th grade; so I went 4 long years feeling absolutely hideous. Guys would say things like "you could be pretty but you have acne so...", little kids would ask "why do you have little bumps on your face?". So I didn't feel pretty, I would cry about it a lot. I wouldn't leave my house, I would starve myself, I wouldn't take pictures, would do things that covered up my face In every way imaginable.
And then I found makeup. For 8 hours a day I didn't have to wonder if everyone was staring at me or my makeup. People would give me compliments. I felt... pretty. I took pictures again, I left my house again.
So no I'm not trying to trick you when I wear makeup, I'm trying to make myself happy and feel good. And if you really loved or liked someone you wouldn't care about how they look physically. Look at that woman, he's wearing red lipstick and eyeliner, it's obvious she's wearing makeup. Sofia vergara is an actress that always wear makeup. So no one is "tricking" you they're doing something that makes them feel good about themselves, and your just too lazy to notice or ask. So if you don't want to date girls with makeup fine, but don't pretend like its equal to rape
I don't think it's deceptive, unless you're one of those girls who end up looking like completely different people. It's pretty well-known that women wear makeup and it shouldn't come as a shock to find out that a girl doesn't have huge eyelashes, built in eyeliner, clear and even skin, and gold eyelids. I've always told people that they should do what they have to do to feel comfortable, and for some people that includes applying makeup. You say we're deceiving men, but how are we supposed to walk around without makeup all the time in a world that has such high expectations of what women should look like. I saw a little picture on tumblr that said something like
Boys: Girls don't need makeup to be beautiful, they should just embrace their natural beauty.
*girl goes natural*
Boys: You don't look so great, are you coming down with a cold?
Lmao, it made me laugh, but it's really true. I stopped wearing makeup for a couple weeks and my grandma thought I was depressed and giving up on life haha
noo what do you mean? Of course I was born with winged eyeliner and purple eyelids!
honestly if it's eye makeup you are stupid for thinking that's natural, face makeup I can see being a bit deceiving but I don't even know how to use foundation so congrats to the women who are actually good at it you are all very skillful.
If you think a woman is being deceptive about who they are because they are wearing makeup, then it shows that you are only focusing on her outward appearance, and looks aren't everything. If it's a one night stand sort of thing, then so what? You're never going to see her again, and she looks attractive on that night, who cares.
I have a question called.. have you seen this video... check it out...
I do think that make up can be deceiving only when they put so much they look like someone new...
but if its like just to give them self a little of color then no
ps. you have Sofia vergada in your line... I think she is beautiful with no make up.. that lady is over 50 years old...
it isn't deceptive, but it is meant to 'enhance' a girls looks. I feel its the same way as getting a new haircut or when a boy gels his hair. It's using products to enhance appearance. In the end you are still the same person underneath and it kind of only bothers people who like the opposite sex for their aesthetics and nothing else. :)
Asker: I love how all your arguments about make-up involve the girl trying to "deceive the guy" And all your comparisons for the argument involve actual deception from the guy/and, or illegal. Anyhow, the point is I wear makeup for myself because I feel more awake, I like that everyday I get to be creative and come up with some new looks plus being in sales it's actually in my job description. I'm not trying to get a man, and damn sure not someone as narrow minded like you who's only concern is that you land a natural 8 or above. Quite honestly I think you need to stop looking at the girls with makeup as the problem and figure out why you feel so entitled to hook up with such naturally beautiful women? What happens when you find that perfect 10 woman on the outside but she's a 3 on the inside? What then?
Smh I find this argument to be dumb. Everyone knows make up changes what a person looks like--there's no deception there, attempted or otherwise. I'll be the first person to say I look way uglier without make up. Unless a woman is trying to claim her face is "natural" when she's covered in make up, there's no deception going on, only fun with paint.
Hi There! First let me just say that the first makeover photo that you posted is AMAZING! Kudos to that MUA!! LOL Now to your question: Yes, makeup can be deceptive. If you are using it to hide or conceal features about yourself then yes. However, in most instances, makeup is used to highlight or enhance your best features. The woman pictured above has beautiful blue eyes that were being washed out by blotchy skin and an ungroomed eyebrow. See the difference after? what you're seeing is a trick of the eye, contouring achieved through the use of cosmetics. In essence, she is still the same person, just "enhanced". Makeup is deceptive when used to hide permanent scars, marks, acne, etc. which are things that can be corrected through properly taking care of the skin through diet, dermatology and by letting the skin "breathe". Have you ever noticed that many makeup artists have very beautiful natural skin? even though they may wear a "full face" everyday? it all comes down to proper skin care. You should never want to be dependent on makeup to feel beautiful or confident. A good facial cleanser, moisturizer, toner and sun screen should do the trick,,,, in addition to plenty of water, vitamins, fruits & veggies. xo
The examples you provided are not just make up. They're digitsllg enhanced and altered. So don't go by that. If you're taking foundation, concealer, blush, mascara, eyeliner, shadow, lip liner, lipstick, under eye lightener, then yeah that can be a little deceptive. A little mascara and bronzer is just enhancing.
Of course it's deceptive, people cover blemishes and skin problems with it. They create bigger lip and longer lashes with it. They create the illusion of a more feminine or more mature face with it. If it wasn't deceptive people wouldn't be using it because that's it's whole goal: to make you look better.
yes, because not wearing any makeup at all shows the most truth. therefore there's gotta be some deception. i dont wear makeup (though i tried it a few times) because it ruins my skin, and pulls out my eyelashes :/
I look good with or without makeup. I don't see makeup as a deception but a tool to enhance ones beauty. My friends, family and exes have all said you don't need to wear makeup that I am already beautiful without it but I enjoy making up my face. Its apart of me taking care of me.
I feel a little makeup should be no problem at all. For example, all i usually wear is eyeliner and chap stick. Sometimes for a more important event i will put a bit more on, never a full face of makeup. I think a lot of makeup is not nessecary. Especially if you are in a relationship you should feel comfortable around your guy with nothing on, that is important in a relationship. Besides, every girl looks better without makeup, because it is the fact that it's your face
Ok i can see if you use little makeup. When i say little i mean a little eyeliner and mascarra maybe a light brush of eyeshadow. Anything more than that is plastic looking. If she looks to perfect she probably is. Come on you can't tell me that a girl has a pond of makeup on. If they do they look porclin or fake. I don't know maybe that is just me
Every time I see a woman with makeup all I can think of is:
"What other lies is she telling me? Is she secretly a queen in commoner clothes? Does she have a bank account in the Caymans? Will I live up to the standards of her overbearing father?"
And then I have to go sit down and chew some gum before I pass out.
I agree. I personally wear bb cream that's it.. No lies. But Some chicks cake that "war paint" on so much. But is it insecurity? Or just that majority of celebrities wear a lot as well. Guess a lot of girls follow fashion trends too. So if no make up was "in style" would they do it? Probably not.. lol
Unless you date a girl who wears drag makeup 24/7 ad refuses you to let her see you without it then no. Makeup is mean to enhance beauty. The women you posted are models and actresses. Chances are you won't be with a normal girl who look red carpet or photo shoot ready. Also being honest in a relationship and some damn makeup are literally not even close in comparison. I ask would hope that men aren't so dense they would assume makeup is somehow natural.
If a guy doesn't realize that the girl he likes doesn't actually have gold eyelids and naturally black skin around her eyes then that is his problem.
Women wear make up because that's the way we are raised. If we aren't good looking enough then no boy will like you.
And FYI, those sample picture have horrible lighting, no one would look good in than light. Plus the first girl after make up is completely airbrushed in Photoshop. Boys are fucking idiots.
As soon as society stops putting such a strong emphasis on a girl's appearace, then maybe we can stop wearing it without fearing being called ugly.
Make up is deceptive 😪😪 in my opinion and I feel make up shouldn't be an everyday thing. If I have a boyfriend I want him to love me for me ( my normal everyday face with out make up)
So on the day I put on make up he's going to appreciate me more
But if he keeps seeing you with make up on, and the day you decide not to put on make up then I don't know that's your problem, it might seem so weird to him
I feel make up just improves what you already have, it doesn't deceive but I know some girls wear way too much and they look completely different which I guess you could count as deceptive, but I think most girls use enough to enhance their face, not change it.
I think in a sense it's deceptive if it's used to enhance beyond how you actually look.
I don't wear makeup. When I do I apparently look younger (I thought it made you look more mature?)... but even so I'm not good enough at it to change my looks like that haha.
I think. most womem are beaitiful anyway with or without makeup but it does make them a little sexier when they get all dolled up besides i think women like looking hot for their man and really i thimk the personality is the hottest thing on a girl because she might have a slammin body but its nothing if she stuck up.
If your dating a girl that wears a whole bunch of make up. Just knows she looks different. Make up is cover up. Everyone looks different without make up. If you don't like make up date a girl that doesn't wear make up
Few people who use makeup put on as much as a celebrity does. Celebrities have professional artists work on their appearance, and even those professionals are at the upper end of their profession.
The majority of girls who put on makeup don't fundamentally change their appearance. I suppose you could say it's deceptive, but then again, so is washing the natural oils out of hair, or shaving beards. People even have a biological instinct of tightening their abdomens to appear more fit. Human beings have always tried to enhance themselves, and I don't think it's a destructive part of human nature.
it depends on how much people put on it's possible to put it on and still look like yourself. the girl in the first picture looks like a doll and i don't get how anyone finds that attractive. it looks terrible. less is always more when it comes to makeup. also your second pictures are of two diff people. i like wearing makeup but not to the point i look like a doll. the girls who do that are the ones who are idiots. the rest of us who wear little or none are better.
I think it depends. But girls don't always wear makeup to impress guys. It's to help them with their confidence. It really does make a difference in their self esteem levels. If that's what they like then let it be. But if they insist the look pretty much the same without makeup to try and win you then there's a problem. But guys should know that she'll look different without makeup. Not like a total transformation change but a fairly normal amount of change. If that makes sense.
My bf at the time saw me. Tons of times with no make up on Skype and pictures. But I love make up too I make it look natural I have acne scars and I prefer to cover them up. So to me it's not deceptive although he saw me completely make up free. I am not one of those people who never let their their significant other see them without make up.
Makeup is only deceptive if its used heavily on someone who never wears it. I hardly ever wear makeup but I do wear a BB cream with a hint of foundation and use a lip gloss. If I'm going on a night out I wear a slightly foundation so there isn't much difference to when I don't wear it at all.
If the person wears a lot if make up so much you can see how much powder she has on then yes but if it's only a little then no
It really depends on the person. If the makeup is used for a special occasion, church, or covering up a scar (I know someone who does this) then its okay. It really shouldn't be used as much at the gym, library, school, and certain other places. Using like a whole pound of it to the point if you are touched and is on someones hand, clothes, cheek, or other places, thats a bit too much.
If you use a normal amount of make-up, by that I mean powder and mascara, there's nothing deceptive about it. You just show that you don't want to look like you've completely "abandoned" yourself.
But if you spend hours painting your face and changing it into something else with tons of contouring and eye-shadows, it's kind of deceptive.
Guys, I'm sure you see a girl with too large amount of make-up, so in my opinion, it's you who takes the risk. :D
I think a little bit of makeup is totally okay for a girl. All i do is eyeliner and chap stick. I think if a girl wants to put a lot on for a special occasion it is fine. If a guy likes a girl they won't care about makeup anyways. But a full face of makeup around your partner all the time is defiantly not necessary and would bother me too.
I can only speak for myself. I don't feel it is deceptive when I wear it bc i dont wear it very often only a few times a year. I like my natural beauty, when I wear make up its only to give myself a boost in confidence. It makes me feel happy n gives me that pep in my step. When one wears it all the time it weakens that good feeling
I have a weird ability to stare past their makeup and see them for who they are. I know they're very insecure if they wear more makeup and moer secure if they wear less.
I don't wear much make up , I don't wear it ever day. Unless I have a class that does make up , then it well just be in the morning , sometimes it we just be nail polish
No. The people wearing it could be, but makeup itself?
Firstly, the images above couldn't be more photoshopped if they tried and secondly, I don't think it's deceptive, if a man is stupid enough to think my lips are bright red or my eye lids are are blue thaat's not my problem.
Not always, makeup should be for fun not addicyion actress are crazy they can't without it, girls should learn to take care of their brains before faces, but it doesn't harm to lokk elegant and cute, but just not so different!
It's perfectly okay to wear makeup whenever you feel like it. But the minute you start wearing it to mask yourself it becomes unhealthy and deceptive.
