    Default What's your opinion on makeup?

    I don't think I have a type but I notice I'm only attracted to girls without makeup. Of course, anyone has the right to wear whatever they want, but I feel its popularity (around 5/6 of young women use makeup according to surveys) is at least partially due to industries preying on and exploiting self-image issues. I find makeup (and piercings including earrings, but that's for another thread) to be both a turn-off, and on some level one symptom of capitalist exploitation of women (and, increasingly, men). I wish people didn't wear it and I feel instead of hiding blemishes and enhancing beauty, it hides beauty and makes people look fake and unappealing.

    What do you think?

    I agree with you. I dislike makeup because it covers her face.

    I feel like users are often dependent on it, and balance temporary confidence on the rotten pillar of cosmetics. Then they get hooked. I often find the use of cosmetics to correlate with lower self esteem.

    I find that attractive women look more attractive without make-up. Wearing a small amount isn't a big deal though.

    For unattractive women, no amount of make-up can compensate.

    it should be used to highlight her strengths and cover up her weaknesses so to speak. Excessive make up is usually not attractive unless she an artist or gothic or something. So like most things in life it should be balanced and edge towards minimum.

    don't know if that made sense, only 7pm but super tired

    I don't know where you live but from my neck of the woods the women who usually don't wear makeup around here are "manly" feminists. I personally can not go outside without makeup. My eyelashes are light so it looks like I have very few lashes when I don't put my eye liner and mascara. My skin tone is uneven and my pores are huge that is why I apply powder. i don't over do it though. I have seen worst cases however of women with rosacea and other skin problems. Very few women were born with blessed angelic type skin.

    My current girlfriend is allergic to makeup, but most girls who don't wear it tend to be the innocent ones. I don't know any manly feminists, except feminists who are men, of course.

    Ultimately I imagine you believe you have these flaws, but they're only apparent to you. You need to believe you need makeup so the cosmetics industry can keep on turning.

    I think it's fine for the most part, but women should feel comfortable in their own skin as well and not depend on makeup. IMO a full face of makeup to go food shopping is ridiculous.

    I personally don't wear makeup on most days, but I don't look down upon women who do.

    Are you sure they are not wearing any makeup? Most guys I know think some girls don't wear makeup when in fact those girls are wearing some mascara,eye conciller and some powder. They don't "cake" it that is for sure however.
