Yes. Not shaving is just a logical extension of the whole arguments upthread! Very good point.

Yes! Going completely natural with unshaven legs and armpits is a logical extension of so many arguments upthread. We could all never cut our hair too! Or pluck our eyebrows! Or file our fingernails! We'd save so much time, and we'd be totally natural.

I knew a woman who looked very elegant in her office attire and makeup, with hair done up. Her husband was convinced he was married to a great beauty. She said he'd never seen her without her makeup. She'd always get up in the morning before him, and would apply her makeup right away and do her hair. I saw her once without her makeup and her hair down, and I'm not exaggerating, it was frightening, a real shock! A completely different person.

Stop thinking it's all about you.
Because women do care what others think of their looks that's why they're putting on the makeup. Last I check I don't see any women staring at themselves in the mirror all day long.

Yes, makeup is a form of self expression and a disguise.

Not at all. I've worn makeup almost daily since I was in high school. I'm almost fifty, and people still mistake me for being in my late thirties on a regular basis.

Earlier I speculated that Texas is a strong state for makeup sales. I did a search on per capita cosmetics sales and sure enough I found an article about the extremely high makeup sales in Dallas. The article said Dallas beats New York and Los Angeles in per capita sales hands down. I am surprised about L.A because I would expect it to be a good makeup market (and it probably is, just not compared to Dallas). The article also said that Dallas is fascinated with exterior beauty. Sounds like my kind of town as I'm a fan of women with the artificial look.

No one in the world will agree with me but I love to see women apply makeup while they are driving. It looks so sexy and feminine. It makes me proud to be an American too. In Saudi Arabia women can't drive or wear makeup. So when a woman puts on makeup behind the wheel she looks so liberated and independent..She's Ms Anti-Saudi Arabia. I know I know...you all hate this because it's dangerous not to pay attention to the road. Yes it is but it's not as bad as texting and driving.

Where'd you get that from? Saudi women DO wear make up--and plenty of it.

Because some women NEED make up. And I mean need as in to so they can go from hideous to ugly.

Guys don't have that luxury. Women get to see us in all of our hideous glory.

Who are these people who have others asking them if they're "okay" or "sick"? I wear, if anything, only the occasional concealer to cover a particularly red zit. I'm in my 30s, and I've never worn makeup other than concealer every once in a while. I can't imagine anyone, family or otherwise, asking me if I was unwell because I was unmade up, and I'd be very cold to anyone who attempted to be so unnecessarily personal as to ask about my appearance.

I bet even natural-born (non-internet) trolls are embarrassed by this post.
