It is a billion dollar waste of money industry. Marketing works, so most women will always want to fall for it. I am not a fan of a ton of makeup and all that mess. Just wake up shower and get on with the day for goodness sake. Women wonder why they have so much trouble aging as well as men. DUH, how can your skin be happy with all those chemicals on it all the time? Goodness, scrub that crap off!

The women in Hustler, Playboy, and porn wear the most makeup of all. Those overmade up lips and eyes are ridiculous. When men start actually putting their actions behind their words, maybe women will pay attention and wear less makeup.

But Julia's point is that grooming isn't necessarily "natural", either. It's not natural for a woman to go to a salon to have all of her body hair ripped out with wax. It's not natural to go to a gym to run in place and pick up and put down heavy objects. It's not natural to smear chemicals all over her skin and hair to make them smoother and softer. It's not natural to smell like flowers or musk or vanilla. Some of you guys who want a natural woman would probably be appalled by an actual natural woman.

There is a girl ive been on a few dates with but she wears too much makeup. She looks much better without all that on. I want to tell her that is why I am not seeing her more or will not entertain her as a possible gf. But I cant not tell her that obviously.

When will men realize some women don't care what they prefer?

If you don't want to date the girl because she wears a wee bit too much make up then don't date her.
Pretty shallow reason in my opinion but it is your life, your choice so carry on.

Just remember you could have passed up the love of your life over a bit too much makeup.

Women do not have MORE trouble aging than men.
How one ages is mainly genetics

PS ~~ If you don't want to wear "crap" otherwise known as makeup then don't but do not "tell" a woman not to.
It is not your decision, your choice, your body nor your face.

Men can only recommend or inform women that they look better without all that makeup.

What women do with that knowledge if up to them.

Women can only tell men they are self-centered idiots for thinking the world revolves around them and their preferences.

What men do with that knowledge is up to them.

I don't think it would be safe to say that.

Nearly all men prefer this. Talk to a few dozen, it's widely known.

The only people who haven't seem to have caught on are some segments of the female population. Of course the fashion/"beauty" industry (how many tens of billions a year?) has a vested monetary interest in promoting the use of makeup...

Makeup, to me, just screams "trashy!"

I understand *some* very, very, very subtle use of it, but caking it on is just gaudy.
