some women with darker skin wear lots of makeup to appear like they have lighter skin which I find odd because that means they are not comfortable with their own skin color.

I see make-up as something a person only uses when they are trying to hide their "flaws." I used to wear make-up when I was in middle school, because I thought it would make me more attractive. After I graduated from middle school, I started seeing it as being superficial and that I shouldn't need to hide who I am behind layers of make-up. Now I don't wear make-up at all, apart from the occasional lip gloss, and feel much better about myself.

"So what are you are thoughts?" What do you mean by that?

In all seriousness though, I prefer little to no make up on a woman for the most part. I like natural beauty. I can understand why someone wouldn't like it at all though I mean it's kind of like lying if it's used improperly.

Right? If women looked our best while 100% natural, then many fabulous things wouldn't exist, including:
1) heels
2) makeup of any kind
3) bras, corsets, and bustiers
4) Adobe Photoshop

I recognize that Photoshop is the only one of the above that wasn't specifically created to make men look better, since it was clearly created for the purpose of pasting friends' faces onto dirty porn. However, the inescapable truth is that stilettos are hot, makeup only hurts when it's done wrong, bras are a requirement for anyone bigger than an A cup (men included), and Photoshop is the only thing that makes internet dating viable.

Don't get me wrong; my favorite way to see a real woman is totally free of, makeup, shoes, and clothes of any kind - while rolling around in my bed. But it comes after a selection process that takes into account all three and can only be bypassed with massive amounts of alcohol.


I don't always wear heels, it's actually pretty rare and if I do it's for myself and no one else. I also don't see the need for make-up, apart from the occasional lipgloss/lipbalm. Some women might need to wear a bra, because it supports their breasts so they don't feel sore from hanging there if they happen to be naturally big. I actually like going out without a bra on because it feels so much better, but there are times when I think it is appropriate like at work or school. I don't like what Photoshop is being used for, creating these unnatural looking women.

All of this stuff plays off of another forum topic about women being hard on themselves for how they look and it is pretty much attributed to how society is making us feel. Women need to be strong and break away from that, because it is incredibly damaging. It wasn't until I got older that I realized I looked fine the way I am and that's when I really started to love myself for me.

Why does this sound so poetic?

Okay but in all seriousness, I like it when girls go all natural. I will admit make-up really does do wonders. Nothing beats a plain, ole' naked face though!!!

The problem I have with make-up is the cost-benefit analysis. Makeup usually takes a girl maybe 30 minutes to an hour daily to get themselves to look 'pretty.' Personally I think that's a lot of wasted time, it's just too much pre-occupation with personal looks when the time can be better spent doing something meaningful/useful. As a guy, I appreciate a practical approach to self-presentation, that doesn't involve wasting lots of time just to look good. Some girls might say they only wear makeup if they're going out --- which I think is worse, because that makes it sound like you're only doing it to present yourself a certain way to other people (or else you'd do it everyday, even when people aren't looking), which comes across as spending too much time worrying about what other people think about your looks.

Personally, I think a lot of girls look better without makeup. It comes across more down-to-earth and less like they spend inordinate amounts of time doting on their faces (assuming basic hygiene/cleanliness, of course). Besides, everyone knows that a bunch of colored creams on your face doesn't hold a candle to having a down-to-earth personality and being an intelligent conversationalist.

I think girls are most attractive when they're comfortable, or at least look comfortable. So, no makeup, pajamas, t-shirt, a summer dress, loose ponytail or just hair down. For some reason seeing a girl in skin tight clothes, makeup, and a tight ponytail just bugs me.

I personally don't like it, but I don't care at all if people wear it. For me, it's just a different kind of mask, just like plastic surgery, or tattoos to some extent. It isn't for me, and a girl without make up will always be prettier than one with, because it's just a mask.

So, to simplify that, I don't like it or understand it, but if people want to wear it, do it and love it.

IMHO I prefer to see the natural beauty of women but have no problem with makeup except when over done, which I guess is a matter of opinion. Hate tattoos, total turn off.

Make-up is for performers, clowns & whores.....Just kidding. I don't have any tats or wear make-up, my ears are pierced (once) only because I was bored (in middle school), not that I really wanted them. I don't have any problem with anyone decorating their bodies, but It does bother the hell out of me when people pluck out all their eyebrows, then draw it back on to get that perpetually surprised look.

I don't mind girls wearing make-up. It just gets silly when they have more make-up on than a clown.

Lucky you. I remember being young, fresh-faced and perky also. I still often run around in flip flops and a swimsuit, feel great without makeup, and have never photoshopped myself for any reason. But that doesn't mean that women look our best 100% natural. Really, if that were true, you wouldn't be wearing a bra to school because they wouldn't exist, and neither would lip gloss or heels.

Only Girls can understand girls.
We wear make-up because it actually makes us feel confident and it actually enhances the beauty that we already have. Isn't it?
It's just that sometimes some girls go way overboard putting it on.
But I'm more on a natural look. Just powder, blush and lip balm and I'm ready to go.
