I wear makeup most of the time when I go out. Not foundation or concealer, because I suck at applying it right. But mainly eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick/gloss. I just like variety. Honestly, I don't care whether someone thinks I'm pretty or not, I just think of makeup as a coordinating accessory. Just like some people choose to get piercings or tattoos to look unique, I choose to do makeup to look unique. :

First of all I think makeup doesn't make you a fake person; it's meant to enhance your inherent beauty. So wearing makeup does not necessarily make you a fake person okay? :)

Unless we're talking of costume or stage makeup, it doesn't have to turn you into a whole different person.

As for me, I wear a little makeup to look presentable enough and not too pale in front of patients. I love to put on other people's makeup, and I am proud of my skills xD

I REFUSE to buy or use makeup! I don't need that stuff! (I mean, that would cut into my ANIME funds! BLASPHEMY!!! ...I'm half serious. ) In all seriousness, I don't like the feel of makeup and don't like to have the stuff near me. I think the only people that need makeup are actors and those that need to cover up injuries. (When I was in school, MANY EONS AGO, a classmate got some kind of head injury and used makeup to cover up the injury while she was in school. You could still see it, but it wasn't so scary looking. In that case, makeup was a good thing.) I especially hate lipstick cause I end up eating it (and it doesn't even taste good!) which is very bad because you could be ingesting some very nasty stuff.

Anyway, the short answer for me is "No, I avoid makeup."

Personally, I don't care for the style of makeup that the tribal men use; however, my opinion doesn't matter, because I'm not the target audience. Sure, I'm a woman, but I don't live there, and I wouldn't be considered "attractive" by their standards.
There really is no wrong when it comes to beauty. There's a reason why the phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" exists, because groups of people rarely ever agree.
Makeup is just one version of "fake beauty." Other things, like a man trimming his beard and a woman shaving her legs also gives an artificial impression. It's not just about looking pretty, either. You should do some research. I'm not skilled enough with words to explain it all to you. I will say this, though: Humans heavily rely on visual cues, and makeup is only one way to either enhance or create them.

Girls are lucky they have make-up to make themselves look pretty(unless ur a cake face or somethin), for guys if ur ugly ur screwed!!!


Not really. Men can wear make-up just as easily as we do, though it may often involve purchasing so-called women's products. Alot of male celebrities wear makeup, the practice of male cosmetics appears throughout history, and it's still common practice in some parts of the world. For example, the men of the Wodaabe/Bororo tribes of Niger, Cameron, Central African Republic, and Nigeria wear elaborate makeup, feathers, and other adornments to impress marriageable women.


Ok well tribes i guess ur right but ummm make-up is Fake Beauty,do any of those tribal men look attractive to u??? all i know is make-up is suppose to make u look prettier and those tribal people have different reasons for it....No homo but ummm people like Zac Efron, Johnny Depp, Russell Brand use it too and they look attractive for their age sooo ummm are we both right and wrong or are women always right???

I wear make up on special days. Usually it's just a bit of makeup to enhance my eyes. Most of the time though, I just can't be arsed.
Putting it on = OK! Taking it off and making sure every bit of it is gone = Ugh.

^yoooo girl freckles are mad cute
i would love to have freckles!!

For me, I wear makeup pretty much anytime I go out. It takes only 1-2 minutes to apply and I usually fill out my eyebrows and wear some blush.
I wear makeup because it makes me feel more confident

Every time I go out in public, Until I'm done getting my face LASERed I wear foundation/concealer on about half my face because I don't want to be the incredible bearded lady.

While I'm at it I'll usually also add a little lip stick and gloss, maybe some bronzer and blush to do a bit of contouring. My efforts at eye make usually end up as a 'Who beat you up?' disaster so I tend to keep it simple, a bit of mascara on the lashes maybe a cautious stroke of eyeliner.

Call it fake or whatever if you like. Brag at under twenty about how you don't need it, all you like (just you wait a few decades and then brag, I dare you) . I'm not you and you're not me, Make up makes the face I see in the mirror.. something pretty.
