    Few women actually wear makeup ALL THE TIME.

    Various cosmetics when applied correctly can enhance versus coverup.

    Most individuals who use excessive cosmetics have personal self-esteem issues which has nothing to do with the cosmetics.

    Heels aren't the same thing as wearing a hidden lift in a man's shoe because we're not pretending we're taller, it's pretty obvious we're just wearing shoes.

    So cutting hair is the same as buying new boobs ?

    People think they look good with cosmetics but they only think this because that's what society tells them is "beautiful".
    I tried researching about this, I read one article where a women went a year without make up but admits that she puts lipstick on during that year so no, she didn't really go a year without makeup.



    So I present these questions, male or female can answer.

    1. You don't really look like that so why pretend?
    2. Is there any women out there who specifically "don't at all" wear makeup?
    3. Is this something that should have died out years ago?
    4. What do you think about why they/you do it?
    5. Would you be OK knowing I wore a wig if I were bald, had a pair of socks stuffed in my pants for obvious reasons, shoe-lifts to make me appear taller than I really do? (Hypothetical but serious questions, I can't picture a woman dating a man with any of these choices)

    Ok, first off, 'women' is plural meaning more than one and 'woman' means singular, only one. 'Woman' is the correct form of the word. Women, ladies, always look better when wearing makeup. Alot of men look better too.

    There are studies showing that women have naturally less stimulating facial features than men, similar to how one gender of a certain animal species can be much more colorful and visually stimulating than the other.

    How about hairspray or wax? How about deodorant? Perfume/Cologne? These are all things we apply to ourselves to alter our natural state to improve the impression we make on other people. Personally I like a woman that looks pretty without makeup and uses it sparingly, heavy makeup is a turnoff. That is just my personal preference though, I am not going to judge a woman based on her decision on how much makeup she likes to wear. It also isn't like lieing because it is totally obvious that she is using makeup to change her image. (but padded/push up bras can be a huge let down when they come off)

    I used to wear makeup a lot as a teenager but even then I never participated in what I like to call the "raccoon eye" trend. I was pretty sparing mostly just trying to cover my excessive acne and using some color on my eyes. Now that I'm a mother of two young toddlers I hardly ever get out of the house so I only wear the make up when going on a "grownup" outing, as in just with my husband. I see no point in using it on a daily basis. He knows what i look like and has no complaints and I'm not interested in impressing anyone else. But when it's just him and I going out on our yearly date night I like to look good for him and for myself. Even then it's still mostly a small amount of concealer to cover the acne as I'm very self-conscious about it, and a slightly tinted lip chap as my lips get very dry and start peeling which is painful if I don't moisturize. For the other 364 days of the year I'm makeup free to attempt to keep my skin healthy.

    well for one, wearing clothes is hygenic and needed in cold weather to keep warm etc. As for nice vs ugly clothes, that does kind of fit in with the OP but I didnt want to get into that as everyone wears clothes and it has its realistic uses. Whereas makeup is almost all women and men actors and the sprinkled regular male like the one who posted here
    You seem to have some pretty serious issues. Why does it automatically make a man shallow to enjoy the appearance of a woman with make-up? And, to be fair, the kind of make-up presented in those photos and what it seems like you're referring to is quite dramatic and ridiculous and not at all necessarily what a woman wearing make-up would look like.

    Something a little more like this -

    She looks good either way, but the make-up is subtle yet adds that extra bit of sexiness in there.

    You might want to see someone about your insecurities, though, and maybe just enjoy life or something.

    They wear make up because they are stupid and insecure. They want to whore themselves out too. This is truth because I've seen girls with and without makeup. With makeup they look lustier and without they are cuter. Yep.

    I have a feeling we can all see who the insecure one is.

    Even in nature, illusion is an important factor in many species' survival. Butterflies have spots that look like eyes to scare off predators. Certain flies have evolved to look like bees. A puffer fish bloats itself with air to appear way bigger than it really is.

    Makeup is similar in that it may be an illusion, but it can serve a purpose. To me, the point is not whether we were born with makeup or not, but that if you are judging by nature, illusion is not inherently wrong.

    That's right, women should just bend to your will.

    Women must just love you.

    EDIT: I also love how makeup = whore.

    Does it even matter? If people don't like women who wear makeup, they should stop hanging out with women who wear makeup.

    I'm sorry, but exactly what business is it of yours whether or not a woman wears makeup? It's not your face, it has absolutely no bearing on your life or happiness, why does any woman need to justify her choices or what she does with her face and body to you? The slut shaming in here is just disgusting.

    I mean, women choosing to wear makeup couldn't possibly have anything to do with the systematic, misogynistic shaming by men (and even other women) of a woman's appearance. Honestly it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. Don't wear any makeup? You're an ugly dog, go hide at home. Wear obvious makeup? You're a whore, you deserve to be treated like a worthless slut. The only 'right' answer is obviously to be naturally, flawlessly and conventionally pretty. Which is ridiculous, no one in the world looks naturally, flawlessly and conventionally pretty without heavy photoshop and subtle makeup. Everyone has zits, freckles, blemishes, sun damage, something.

    And the idea that a woman wearing makeup is a "lie" because she is covering up her "real appearance"? More bullshit shaming. It isn't a lie any more than any other effort made by anyone else (male or female) when getting ready for the day, and it's ridiculous to think you have the right to make fun of it. Do you ever shave? You're lying about your natural facial hair, and I have the right to pick on your naked baby face. Ever dyed your hair? You're lying about your color, and I have the right to make fun of you for going gray. Put on deodorant? Lying about your natural smell, and I can make fun of you for having the gall to cover up your usual stink. Ever put on clothes? Uh oh, you're hiding a fat roll, or a scar, or a tattoo, or a third nipple, and I can now shame you for having anything less than a perfect Adonis-like physique under that lie you call a t-shirt.

    Oh did that sound silly and hurtful? Try being a woman for ten minutes.

    Both sexes tend to try to do things to make themselves more sexually attractive to the other. It's just that men care almost exclusively about looks while women care partially about looks and partially about ability as a provider.

    Actually, women don't really wear make up for men. They wear it for other women. Women are a peculiar creature and they are very jealous of other women. They think of going out as competition with other women in who's prettier.
    Seriously, the men are like 10-15% reason why women wear make up.

    That said, everybody likes to look good, some people are not bothered by that, though. Us men, well, we usually resort to muscles. We don't typically wear make up so we go to the gym and buff our muscles so we don't look petty and in so doing look better.

    The classiest make up is the one that makes you look as if you aren't wearing any.

    There seems to be this nasty undercurrent running through this thread, though I can't quite put my finger on it. Stuff like calling women whores for wearing makeup and whatnot.
