It's all problematic from the very core. You're essentially grabbing some artificial whackery, mostly involving paint, smothering it all over your eyes, eyelashes, skin, face, mouth, everything on your head; and assume that you have become more attractive to look at than how you were the way you were meant to look by nature.
Technically this implies numerous things, for one thing most of these products accumulate in the skin and make you wrinkle much quicker and are completely unhealthy.
Afterwards, it teaches women that their most important value is their physical appearance. It also teaches them that the only way to be liked is if they hide what they look like with paint. Implying that without it, they are hideous and ugly.
It also encourages men to appreciate women only if they wear makeup. Considering people who actually like themselves and the way they look tend to abandon makeup because it's a hassle, usually makeup acts as an indicator for desperation, and can lead more deceptive men to try and get laid with the woman, and never call them back afterwards - so it even increases the likelihood of one be emotionally abused.
It even tells you that you must be FLAWLESS. Not even the slightest bit of error on your skin is permissible, otherwise you'll be ridiculed for your acne, or your scar you got when you were 7, or just that you don't look like a "slut".
Basically, it's one of those many aspects of culture that I just hate, and I wish someone would realize it's stupid and counterproductive. It's similar to how women are essentially forced through peer pressure to shave their legs, except this takes even more extra effort, and even ruins their skin because of all the paint and artificial stuff you use.
And it doesn't even look good. In fact, I hate it. On everyone. Always. What says you?
- I hate makeup so much my rage could function as a second Sun for the solar system, and it causes self-esteem issues
- Actually, makeup is so sexy that I love it more than my actual girlfriend, if she didn't wear it all the time I'd break up with her, and I wear it so men would finally realize I'm desperately trying to fetch at least one in my bedroom
- Honestly, makeup is a part of culture and we should embrace how we teach our children that painting your face is the only value known to a woman and they're hideous otherwise
- I see makeup as an artistic expression of my soul, and I honestly didn't see it the way you portray it here ever
- Makeup is a waste of time but other than that I don't really care about it to begin with and have no problem with it either way
Those who wear it to attract guys should pick Vote B.
Those who appreciate it as a part of culture (I don't understand you at all) should pick Vote C.
Those who hate makeup from the bottom of their souls should pick Vote A.

Unfortunately majority of women do wear make up. It's not going to change either. This is just one of those things that is the reality. Whether a girl wears some eyeliner or some this or that... it's still make up. Thumbs up to the girls who make themselves feel better by saying they *only* wear something though. Make up is make up. Either way, you are doing something that wasn't there to begin with. But back to the question, I wear make up cause it makes me feel happy, feminine and confident. I'm perfectly happy and thankful with the way I was made naturally but these days the sheer truth is that so many girls wear make up and guys pretty much always look at the girls who are beautifully make-upped and have made a effort. Most guys around here won't look twice at a bare faced Sally. But this is not the only reason I wear make up. I also wear make up for me and to show the world that I'm not lazy and make a effort with my appearance. People do all sorts of things to make themselves better... whether it's whitening their teeth, working out, getting waxed or shaving, getting a new hair cut etc etc etc. Most people are going to take advantage of something that can better them in some way or give them a boost of confidence. Also I'd like lastly inform you that good make up is not going to make a woman age any different. Many foundations for example have SPF in it and some foundations even treat acne while covering your blemishes. That's all from my side :)

I like variety. Sometimes none, sometimes light and sometimes lots.
