If people were just satisfied with who they are, we wouldn't be dealing with people with no self confidence and people that make it look like that's the only thing that'll get people to notice them.

Because some assholes feel like their entitled to tell women what they are supposed to look like. Telling other people they shouldn't wear make-up is just as bad as telling them to wear it! I'm going to wear and not wear make-up how I want whenever the fuck I please. You don't get to decide what goes on my body. Ladies, it's your face. Rock it however you want to and don't listen to anyone who tries to tell you otherwise.

Tattoos are an art expression, but many are used to represent gangs and criminal activities (for instance, a tear underneath an eye could mean they have killed somebody and a four leaf clover could mean they were/are in a prison gang called the Aryan Brotherhood). Tattoos and make up were and are still used in warrior cultures too. People are afraid of people who fight. That's just the nature of the beast. It's always been like that.

Make-up is fine as long as it doesn't hide the natural features and makes even the original skin complexion appear a different shade. Personally, I do like a bit of make-up on other people (especially eye make-up), but when I try it on myself, I feel like I don't even know my reflection in the mirror.

Because tattoos don't make anyone ugly less ugly.

But makeup? Lord, most chicks literally turn into monsters after they rinse their face.... XS




Wait wait, NOT sexist insult, I repeat : NOT sexist insult. I like makeup. Makeup = good, monsters = bad. Always wear makeup, girlzzzz....

^ Can't tell if trolling or ridiculous.

Either way.. I think most of societies issues with make up are not the with the make up themselves but the projected idea behind it. To cover up who you are, rather than use it to accentuate your already beautiful features. I enjoy a little bit of make up, personally, but some women looks fantastic with a great deal of it or little of it. So long as there is a happy medium and you don't end up looking like a 'different person' after it's off... (unless its worn for that kind of occasion) I fail to see the 'big deal'.

I dated a girl who refused to go outside without makeup. I like makeup and it's nice to see people trying to look their best, but if they can't go outside without it, there's a problem. But in the end that's more self confidence than anything.

Make-up done wrong is viewed negatively, at least for me.

You've seen her monster face in private, right...?
Eyes half the size, lips concave, no eyebrows - they all look the same....

If someone really wants to wear make-up, then go on and wear it. If not, then don't. We all have certain insecurities, so if that's why someone wears make-up (not always the case, but just if), then they're trying to feel more secure. Big deal. I do plenty of things to feel more secure about myself, big whoop.
