Um, I personally don't mind people with minimum necessary make-up. But for those who wear it excessively, they just look ridiculous. And it makes me wonder why they do that. Is it to hide some scars? Are they not confident with the way they look without it?

I've never bothered to put on any make up, not even lip-gloss just because I feel extremely uncomfortable. And I'm not exactly someone people would goggle at and call beautiful, but I'm very confident with the way I look because I look at myself in the mirror and I smile, I like how I look.

Another thing.
I've seen so many Asian women go crazy with make-up, to make their eyes look bigger for most of the time. It's silly, in my opinion.

If it's to make their face to not look greasy, glossy at some areas, or some other things I don't see a problem with it if it's their way to boost their confidence a bit.

Hmm.. This is why I feel like makeup is viewed negatively by some people in society.

Some people feel like they're being fooled by makeup and they don't like it. at all. They want everything they physically see to be true and when they find out it's not.. they feel betrayed. Sort of like magic tricks. You enjoyed the "magic" but something inside you was slightly let down by the fact that it was just slight of hand, video editing, or photoshop.

I also feel like those who are REALLY against makeup might have a mild superiority complex. Like.. "ugh.. I don't need to rely on makeup to feel good about myself.. why do other people wear it? It's stupid." If they see someone they feel is better than themselves... they try to find some tiny fault to exploit to put themselves back on top. In this case, it's makeup. By not wearing makeup, you feel superior.

I don't think your opinion should matter too much in what the person wearing it wants to do with themselves. Makeup shouldn't be such a big deal. If you don't like it there's several billion other people you could go mingle with. But to each their own. This is just my two cents.

Hmm, theoretically that should be the case : people who are against makeup because they know they're already pretty so they don't need it.

But in reality, I think you'll see more out there that those who don't wear makeup are uggos (maybe coz they think they're too far gone, they can't be saved so why bother?), and while there are many other uggos who wear makeup too, you almost never spot the naturally beautiful that don't (prolly having been born that way, they grow up used to grooming and pampering and take pride in the maintenance of their assets).

Um. Did you just miss my point? I don't understand your response.
What exactly are you responding to..?

O.o Confusion is super effective.

Maybe it's just something new with the kids because I have never, ever heard anything negative about people wearing make up outside of a few religious sects. I've have heard criticism about wearing too much make up or wearing it at too early of an age (JonBenet Ramsey) but never for just wearing make up.

I don't really get it either.

Seems like a stupid thing to get upset about.
