That's exactly what it is! Same reason I believe men don't like blondes - they get too much attention and men are deeply insecure baby boys!

If they're a couple that shares resources, it's not just her issue.

The other remarks are just knee-jerk misandry. But if women want to fraud and then get treated poorly by top-tier men (as if a man who isn't "hot" or rich is an automatic dud), I can't stop that. Just speculating that the full face can make a woman feel like she's someone else and disconnect from a softer side of her personality.

WOW! You heard it here first, folks! Women who wear makeup refuse to form or maintain bonds! So if you want women who are into bonding, go for the makeup-free ones!

If the woman are naturally beautiful...going natural is fine. I have no problem with arm pit hair...real eye brows and a bit of normal female body fat...IF you are an insecure little female with a superficial mind...go ahead and pluck....shave - vomit....and get some silicone sack sewn into your chest... Woman are all beautiful...those that think they are not are simply on the dumb side.

A note to you make-up-less Colorado women: you're gross! I live in Denvoid and the slovenly, dirty & frizzy hair, dried-out-skin-hippy-look on 99% of women here is homely! It's frustrating to go out and be the only chick who put forth an effort to look my best. I do not relate to you women at all. Oh how I miss my fake b00bied, fully made-up, gorgeous friends in Vegas/LA. *sighs*
That's a shame about Colorado women. Surveys consistently show they are the least obese women in the U.S. What a waste to be thin and not make an attempt to look pretty. Then again it is a matter of taste. If someone wants to be around thin granolla looking women Colorado seems like it would be utopia.

Oooo-kayyyy. Fake is in. If you don't got it, buy it and flaunt it.

This is why I live in NorCal and NM. I like to keep it real. But...that's just me, I guess.

Okay...no more Mister Nice Guy. I can't stand dark eyed woman who dye their hair blonde trying to look more "white".....I can't stand woman who have a natural butt and jog morning noon and night in the hope of developing a boyish posterior that shallow semi-homo males might find attractive. Males who will never make good husbands and look at woman as objects....Why do women want to be as superficial as possible in order to attract superficial male? Most of today's young drone males are suffering from delayed development...and Most do not and can not see natural beauty in a natural female.....and some males are not worth attracting....so give it up girls......find a down to earth honest guy and live well and be happy....do something important like have a child.

Hmm, I'm not keen on kids, but I agree with the rest of that. I'm not militantly against beauty products, but the woman who clearly use a lot of them I dislike and I wish they'd change and be the type of woman that's hard to find these days, a woman whose appearance communicates both beauty and a good personality. Many of us men and some women make negative snap judgments about the unnatural look, and women who overdo it should hear the message, particularly the ones who actually aren't awful inside.

OK, your earlier posts seem to indicate that you don't like women to use makeup at all, and now you are saying that a little makeup is OK with you?

Some of your other posts are just unreal, as in not in my zone of reality at all.

With all due respect, women are not going to change to please you, OK? There seem to be plenty of women perfectly willing to be totally natural, as you put it. So please find some and cultivate them.

Leave the rest of us alone. We are adults and don't need guidance about our personal grooming.

All of this negativity makes me think there are people who feel that wearing makeup is wrong, and that those of use who wear are really bad people. Lighten up OK? I don't think most women care about your message, frankly.

First of all, I disagree that I said anything "unreal."

Anyway, this isn't about pleasing me personally, although I personally might benefit. Nor is it about attacking specific women, especially when the women of Fashion and Beauty probably are more skillful with beauty products (compared to makeup, a broader and, to me better, category) than the typical woman. She probably does need some guidance about appearance, as does the typical man.

To me, and probably the OP and other male thread participants and maybe a few female participants, this is about a philosophical-based movement back toward natural beauty. With less artifice, because yes some of us think that makeup usually is "wrong" (promoting superficiality and inauthenticity) and (at least me) that there's too much inequality (here re how much enhancement each sex is allowed), consumerism and unhealthy behavior (as in using toxins instead of exercising) plus a shortage in many places of attractive women who project attractive personalities (with mainly the wholly physically unattractive going natural) and ensuing relationship dissatisfaction for both men and women. A movement has to start somewhere. Last year I'd even thought of starting a thread encouraging women to cut back on the number of makeup/facial beauty products (not necessarily cut out, for that's unrealistic). Makeup use is, bluntly, mostly a herd thing. If enough women cut back, others would follow that lead.

But, to not be a cad, I personally would rather not try to regularly crusade about the issue here. Generally change can't be forced.
