Why should I? And you are dead wrong about all men want woman with no makeup. My husband loves my red lipstick.

Insecure? Hardly.

I agree, it's insecurity. Most men I know find women who wear allot of makeup a turnoff. A confident, secure woman attracts a confident, secure man. Looking like trash will get you .. trash.

I hate kissing women with lipstick on. I like natural.

Ooh...ooh...I'll answer.

Cuz some of us don't want to...that's why.

Why do men think that everything a woman does or doesn't do has to revolve around what they (men) like/don't like?

Some women simply don't give the sweat off of a rat's a** what men think about how we run our lives. I know that's a foreign concept for some to grasp, but it's true.

Tbh, you would not want to see lots of women "natural" no bashing or hate intended, but not all of us look fresh and pretty without our makeup on. I don't wear so much makeup, just eyeliner and mascara and a balm or lipgloss, but I can understand that women can feel really insecure without it. I think makeup can just perk up a tired face or make you feel prettier and enhance features. I know some people really cake it on, their choice, but I don't know how many would be willing to put their bare face on display. At least some effort is given by most women to at least appear somewhat presentable. If I leave home without eyeliner or mascara I really don't mind, but I know some would feel insecure. I don't really see a problem with it honestly. It comes off lol.

Here's a fun fact.... the women you think look great with no makeup? They're likely wearing a ton of it, it just looks natural. In fact, many are wearing MORE makeup than the women who make it look obvious.

I'm not much for a lot of makeup. Mascara, maybe eyeliner, sometimes eye shadow, and lip gloss is good. There are many times it's just mascara and lip gloss.

Popular culture has brainwashed us to believe that somehow a woman isn't pretty without a face full of chemical goop. When I was young (and insecure) I believed this tripe. Not any more. I look at young women and I think... "God, she looks awful. I wish she would wash that junk off her face".

If a man is attracted to a woman's appearance, and let's not fool ourselves into thinking that isn't how men are attracted, then that's fine. But once you get to know someone and learn to appreciate them for who they are, appearances become so unimportant. Some of the most beautiful women in the world are unhappy, empty and lonely - regardless of how much makeup they have on.

I don't wear make-up. I haven't since I was around 17. I would rather not wear it, and while it is a bad habit, my hands are on my face a lot. I can't even imagine what my make-up would look like at the end of the day.

Also, when I have anything that is like a foundation on, it makes my face feel sweaty and oily and I truly don't like the feeling..
