I don't wear makeup, it's just not my thing. I think a lot of women have been brainwashed into thinking that they need makeup to look pretty, and that they constantly need to look nice and dolled up for men.

I don't like it when women put chemical crap on their faces, actually I find it disgusting. I like to see women the way nature made them. If a women only looks good because of make-up, it will sooner or later show anyway. But really, a man has to be pretty stupid not to be able to tell if someone is pretty or not, regardless of the make-up.

The thing is, she wasn't unattractive, she was cute, but since she always
had dramatic makeup on (deep red lipstick, black eyeliner) her natural face did not look very good looking without it.

I had this other friend who was also like that, except she took it further.
I'm not sure what she used, but she would make her chest about 2 sizes bigger. I always wondered what it was like for guys she was dating. You think she's a c, find out she's an a.

I don't wear makeup but I always wondered about women who wear makeup all the time, especially dramatic makeup.
Do they wear makeup everywhere? Do they know how different they look without it? The remarks guys make about them without it?

Some of these women aren't bad looking, so why wear so much of it?
Yes, agree. What you start with in the "Maintenance" department looks kind of bad if you don't keep it up. That's why I just use the lightest touch, mascara, some glossy lipcolor, tinted moisturizer, that's it for most places. Dramatic makeup really isn't appropriate for any place except something that's after 5pm

The thing is, is that once you start wearing makeup, you look "dead" without it to yourself and to those who are use to seeing you wear it. I didn't start wearing makeup until I was about 28 years old. I wear only eyeliner and blush. I had a look that didn't need it...but I did it anyway. Once I started using it, if I didn't wear it I just didn't look right to myself. If I were not to wear makeup and a stranger saw me, I'm sure I would look okay because he/she never saw the makeup wearing me. But today, I will not go ANYWHERE without my make up.

A person can be really nice looking but that makeup will make nice looking absolutely knock out. I've seen some homely people look very, very nice after makeup...so it can be really good for some people who need a little more confidence.

When I was young I wore makeup to work everyday. I wore it whenever I left the house. When I wanted to take off from work I would cough, say I was sick, and not wear makeup. NOBODY questioned me because I looked so "bad". LOL. Now I'm over 50 and rarely wear makeup, ever. It's ironic that when I was younger and supposedly looking my best, I covered it all up. Now I let it all hang out.

Default wearing makeup

I'm in my mid 40s now. I never knew how to apply makeup and the times that I did it, I way overdid it.I wound up looking like a cheap hooker. My skin is very pale and I have always had dark circles under my eyes. On top of that I have bad skin. I also have eczema on my hands, so applying makeup was always torture on the occassions that I did it.
I was lucky on the jobs that I had in the past. It was'nt an issue, but right now I am unemployed.When I do go to look for a job, I will have to try to look my best.I am sure that not wearing it will affect my employment in the future.
I do not like wearing it, and wish I never had to. It is also expensive, and I do not think the chemicals in there can be beneficial healthwise. The companiees that make it a re probably buying the stuff from China. Something else to think about when slapping all that **** on, that is absorbing into your system.

I put on a full face every day. If I have to go somewhere and I haven't yet put on my eye makeup, I wear sunglasses. I feel naked and undone without it. I have been putting on a full face of makeup since I was 15 and I never plan on going totally natural. I feel better about myself when I'm wearing it.
I think everyone looks better with makeup on. Check out pics of celebs bare-faced and you'll see what I mean.
