Most Helpful Opinions
I grew up in the hippy 1970s. I love women without makeup. However, in the modern day, when I say this out in the open, women tend to look at me as if I am mentally ill.31
Yes, but I have mixed opinions. Makeup can be used as a form of art, its also used as creative expression. I think it takes a lot of skill to do good makeup, and I think it can also be really beautiful so I respect it. I personally only wear mascara, lip gloss, and shape my brows. I like being natural, I think natural beauty is very hard to come by these days. This is not to shame women who rely on makeup, or wear it often. But it really does change the way a person can look. We should be valued for our natural selves, nothing more. Of course getting all glammed up is nice once in a while but I do agree makeup can be taken a bit too far.40
I don't wear makeup, but what I do wear is often chosen with regard for how it will make me look.
I like cool color shirts because they look better with my skin. Most warm color shirts make me look washed out.
I wear pants that are wider down the leg rather than thinner down the leg, because they make my waist look slimmer.
We live in a time where women wearing makeup is the standard, and not wearing makeup is the exception. So is it really surprising that women wear makeup in a way that enhances their appearance, since they are likely going to be wearing it either way? You may as well make the most of what you have.0
What Girls & Guys Said
You have it backwards. A lot o women can carefully improve their looks by exaggerating the exiting features of their faces. That is all well and good. Beauty is linked to prestige, success, confidence. It would be hard to demand that women give that up.
Most women who use makeup look fine without it. This modern esthetic of artificial perfection and high contrast (pale skin, black hair for example) is getting more prevalent, sure. and it is basically a lie as it doesn't truly exist in nature. But it is nowhere near the actual face change as portrayed in the video.
Then there are wax figurines. Those always look awful, because they knock the very life out their face and the no longer look like a human with embellishments, but instead they are lifeless walking paintings. That's pretty bad and someone should politely let them know that this really doesn't work.
However, most women who look good with a little bit of makeup look just as good when they come without it that one day when they overslept. I have yet to see an example of an unattractive woman who wears makeup. Usually these types just accept their fates and focus on something else, or even give up completely. The video doesn't represent reality where I live.
I personally prefer completely unpainted natural faces with minimal changes to hair etc, but then I am a medieval enthusiast and have a completely different set of esthetic standards from most men. My friends do like high contrast versions of their favorite women. But it doesn't mean the woman is suddenly jumping 3 levels up in sexual market, becoming someone else in the process. That simply doesn't happen.0
mmm yes and no. this is obv an extreme used for an art form. i think you are mostly looking at girls on the internet (that's not meant to be judgement) where the foundation/countour/brows all blend seamlessly into a natural look bc of filters/camera quality. in real life, if a girl is really 'ugly' then it will shine through.
no girl does this level of makeup normally. the most dramatic makeup a girl might do is lashes/alternative eyeliner/contour, which you'd have to be some mega-breed incel to think that's 'natural'. most of the guys who date girls who wear loads of eyeliner are in it for the unnatural look, like guys who are really into piercings or dyed hair. so no, I don't think girls are fooling people into thinking they are pretty. girls who are pretty normally are also pretty with makeup on, we are not doing it to 'trick guys', we are doing it to feel confident/have fun.
i think you might be thinking about filters. this sort of makeup in the video above looks really cakey and awkward in real life (her skin would be all blotchy and her face tape would be visible).0
not really? i didn't really understand what you're tryna mean here but I don't wear makeup and if you don't find me interesting the way I am, then you may just go find someone else and id not change myself for someone else to find me attractive that's just weird
and i do agree there's women out there who do makeup to feel good or look cute for themselves to be satisfied and that's totally okay and its up to them because if they want it for them they can, you have no say in it
people are just beautiful in their own way in my opinion maybe you're just not attracted to them but there might be some other guy who defo is10
On the sexual marketplace men are judged on their provisioning capability; money, resources, reputation while women are judged on their youth, fertility, reproductivity capability. Notice here that only one of the two parameters is negatively subject to time. Meaning, given a man does the work and doesn't make big mistakes his value will increase with time, whereas a woman's will decrease, because her value on the sexual market place (SMV) is mostly her own body. Now make up can be thought of the same as wearing fake luxury good, which increases perception of value.0
Media often tells people (mostly women but also Men) that if your not good looking that yu aren't desirable. Tho reling on make up is a double edged sword since one day your make up has to come off and you have to show your partner your real face and many don't like being lied to. So don't be too harsh on them.1
This was a chinese trend to troll shallow people or to show that being natural is ok so far i know. No average woman can do such make up. Many western women who I see do "kim kardashian" make up in my experience which look unnatractive to me
I personally dont wear make up because i can't do it and it is expensive lol.217
You realize that this is a makeup trend we’re most of the time the put a bunch of stuff to make them look extremely ugly so that the before and after looks amazing? 🤨
I rarely wear make up but I know what your saying! Its funny30
some girls, i rarely do wear it -im a tomboy, i like being average.12
That's not even true and you can't speak for every girl. Every girl is beautiful with or without make up. I think its pretty rude to even say such a thing.12
It's not fair that women like men's natural appearance with the flaws- sparse eyebrows, fine lines and wrinkles, eye bags, uneven skin tone (and the list goes on) while you don't like if a woman doesn't have golden eyelids and bright red lips 😒40
That middle pic is doctored. Makeup wouldn’t change your teeth and nobody has teeth that bad.20
Wow that’s very impressive, meanwhile I still look pretty crap even with make up on lol40
make up is great... either your envous of women... or some other problem0
This is why I don't like make-up on women, I'd rather they let their natural beauty shine through.0
Most women aren't using prosthetics as part of their makeup look so don't be so cynical2
No, I don't think so. If a woman wears some make up it does improve their looks to some extent.0
Some of them probably do that. in my opinion women look better w/o makeup. I rarely makeup0
Only Satanists paint their faces!0
That was gross to watch and no not all of us are crazy to do these things.22
I get your point and they are equal to men when they don't ruin their skin with make up. But I think your issue is you dislike women's attitude don't match what is under the make up. But I disagree. Edison was a dumb ass. Kicked out of school and his mom lied to him and told him he got kicked out because he was a genius. Ford didn't go to school. Carnegie the 5th richest man ever didn't either. A good self image is needed in life but you may still have a point if you say they lack self confidence when they take the make up off so therefore they don't have real confidence. So maybe you're right. Go I would never tell someone to act like they are worthless. The issue is girls treat people bad or walk through dudes when in fact they don't deserve better due to their real attitude under the make up bandaid.
