Personally I rarely wear makeup. I've never really cared for it and most of it irritates my skin. <shrug> Some people like wearing it, others don't.

Why did you listen to your husband? Makeup is NOT for whores. It's for anyone that wants to wear it. Why are you so angry? There's something else going on with you and it has nothing to do with wearing makeup.

I feel prettier with makeup, jewelry, hair done, and nicely made clothing than I feel with bed head, splotchy-skinned face, and a sweatsuit. Does my husband appreciate the effort I put into looking my best? Yes. Is it a cultural thing? Certainly. But ultimately I do it for me. Makeup (and all the rest) is fun and artistic.
I Love your comment! I feel exactly the same way! I think we choose to wear makeup rather than feel the "need" to wear it. The only thing I need to do for myself, is to lose some weight. I used to be so skinny. When I was 17 I only weighed 73 pounds. I blame gaining weight on me buying a car lol. I used to walk a lot out of neccessity. My car made me lazy lol.

Default Great question ...

Isn't the point of make-up to make you look better than you naturally are?

Isn't this done on some level to overly represent your natural features to attract a mate/partner/husband?

If you are OK with your partner seeing you without make-up and feel comfortable with it, why do you feel the need to showoff to strangers that have less importance in your life in a fake and sexually improved facade?

Is a pure and natural look unacceptable to women because they don't feel their looks acceptable for public consumption? What is the goal of make-up in day to day life?
I have always really liked make up and go threw cycles of wearing more of less. I had discussion with another man about this. His question was well why would a married or taken woman care about her appearance that much. I found it so interesting that this single man thought this. Use of make-up means different things to different people. Some people like to drama it can add to this fashion statement. So people do it to enhance their features. I also know many men that hate getting make-up all over the clothes if women they are with is wearing foundation (Not all, but MANY do). I think people who say wearing make-up does not enhance your features are likely not putting it on correctly and check out some youtube videos for ideas.

Personally I wear make-up for the fun of it. I probably worse more then I was younger just to be a bit more rebellious. Now it is just for fun. I am with someone who says that he does not see why I need to wear make-up. I think he is more concerned about his white shirts then my fashion sense lol. Do I and would I leave my house without make-up, yes. If my house is on fire I am not going to kick around to find my mascara ! I know women in their 90s that still wear make-up and none of them have expressed any interest in meeting a new husband. For some people it is just a habit and a way they try to express themselve. If you HAVE to wear makeup to feel good about yourself that is a whole different problem.
