Many Women do it because they enjoy it. I do it because I like it. It makes no difference to men since Im at the age of invisibility except to my dear husband. What you prefer is of absolutely no concern except to those you deem worthy of dating

When it comes to jewelry it's for the sake of other women.

When it comes to makeup it's for the sake of men.

My husband is like you, OP, but I dont think you can speak for most straight men.

I wear lip color every day but usually nothing else. Sometimes I wear foundation and blush and powder and a little eye makeup, for fun, and if he says anything at all it will be a slightly disappointed I thought you dont wear makeup. Of course, I am blessed with good even skin, dark lashes and brows, and look young for my age.

Many women wear a full face daily to try to cover up acne or other scars, or a blotchy complexion.

If your real question is about those ladies who wear obvious and very heavy eye makeup, I think they do it for themselves. I almost never like how it looks either, and it seems like a big waste of time. But if its fun for them...

Obviously it's your opinion...but I would have to disagree. I love me some jewelry. I like "nice" stuff, and I like costume jewelry, and have a great fondness for vintage costume jewelry. I don't like what I like, and wear what I like to please other women, I wear it to please myself. If other women think what I'm wearing is cool or unusual...well...they're right. lol But I do it for me.


And like someone (nearly all the ladies?) said "We don't really care what some men think about make up. If my husband suddenly decided I should stop wearing make up...we'd have a problem. He met me and was attracted to me with makeup on, and it's part of who I am.


I know a guy...he's a good, decent man, who always says he likes a more natural look on women. It is his preference. That's cool. I suppose his wife wears little to no make up. Weird...I've met her a few times, and honestly...I have not noticed if she does or doesn't wear makeup...at any rate, she looks fine. LOL


Anyway...when he says these things, it's not like I'm thinking "Oh darn! I guess I have to change who I am to make myself attractive to him. And, I don't think that's what he's implying when he says he likes a more natural look.


It's JUST stating his preferences...and that's fine.

There's nothing wrong with women who do that.. They just want to look their best. And the women who you think look great without makeup are still probably wearing it.. it just looks very natural. Most women do look better with at least a little bit of makeup..that's the truth.

I don't want my future wife to waste time and money on her appearance.

Like I said, I don't like butch women either. But couldn't long hair, and maybe a modest skirt or dress sometimes be enough femininity?

Makeup must just be big business and their marketing. Or maybe women wear makeup to get attention from other women.
Let the women do as they like, If some women wanna glam up and go all out, great for them, if other don't great for them.

I personally like some middle version of the two. When I see heavily dolled up women I think expensive and time consuming.

As per the thread title, there's a bit of a difference between using makeup and a curling iron and plastic surgery. \_(ツ)_/
