I actually look decent without makeup because I have very nice skin, but I wear it mostly because I like to accentuate my eyes. I've been told they're "intense," and I think makeup plays a part in that. Plus I'm a little vain. Not gonna lie.

I appreciate beauty without makeup. If she is ugly, makeup makes her look worse.
Yup. Women who wear makeup are sluts. Just like women with big boobs. And women with big butts. All hos. Why do they even leave the house. Everyone knows what they are after.

But WOW - 25 pounds for you...I will sure be glad when I get to that point. That's a big accomplishment. I want to lose about 15 more pounds total. Being tall is a real advantage though when you're packing a few pounds - LOL. At least, with the 18 pounds gone, I don't look like a fat girl anymore. Just a slightly fluffy girl.

What - you don't like to "feel good?" Here, I've got something for you then:



Let me know how that works for you.

Why is it when baby girls are born everyone see's their natural beauty and you we're so cute without it.Now when you are adult's why do you have to cover it all up? God loves you for your natural beauty.So why can't friends,family,etc.do the same? that's why you are born without it.The devil always covers up natural beauty because he hate's what God has created (All natural)so the devil does his best to cover everything up.Well it is still a freedom of choice for everyone.In the end it will only matter what God has to say about what was covered and not covered.

Ha, puffy! I'm sure you look great!

It's funny, because even though I've gained nearly 90 lbs in the past few years (some medical, some lazy) I've only gone up 3 pants sizes. I guess I just gain it very evenly... but I'm at the awkward point where my current pants are just a little loose, but if I went down a size they'd be too tight. So, I'm just gonna have to look a bit sloppy for a few more weeks

Not only that, but my hair will be pulled back out of my face as well, and I'm likely to be wearing an old, ratty T shirt. About the same getup that I wear when I am...

Raking leaves/doing yard work -I'm a very hard worker when it comes to yard work, and we live in Texas where you're likely to work up a sweat even at THIS time of year working in the yard (it's 72 degrees here today). So, if I plan on doing yard work, I try to start early in the morning, and I don't put on makeup till after I'm done. Dripping mascara is unattractive.

Playing with little kids - If I've already gotten dressed that day, I've got makeup on. I have six granddaughters under the age of 10. I am already training them on the importance of immaculate nails on fingers AND toes, and on the importance of impeccable grooming!

Watching a movie with my husband - I'm assuming this would be in the evenings. Since I get dressed and put my makeup on in the morning, I've got that covered.

Seems to me like it's not MAKEUP that bothers you as much as it is the idea of a woman putting herself together to be attractive to people other than only her husband.
This is what I was going to say. Its very obvious the OP issue is not with women wearing make-up but the fact that he's insecure and fearful of being with a woman who puts effort into her appearence because she will attract male attention that he doesn't feel he can compete with.

Stop. I am a Christian, but I think you are over doing this. Nowhere does God say that wearing makeup is a sin or wearing makeup is 'covering' his good creation. And don't try to bring up Jezebel either.

I understand as Christians that it is our job to preach the goodness of the Lord, but don't make up stuff either.
