    That really depends on the woman. I personally think lots of makeup is a bad idea. I have seen some women who wear so much they look like clowns and I am not exaggerating when I say that. Still, it is up to each individual woman as to what she would like to do.

    I guess it depends on what her goal is; what she is trying to accomplish, look pretty, sexy, like a clown, or just slutty. 

    It also would depend on how ugly she is and how much work is needed to get her to look better.  (Just joking here)

    Seriously, I personally don't like seeing a lot of make up.  I think women have a much different opinion of themselves than what the rest of the world is seeing.  I have witnessed many beautiful women, that wouldn't have needed any makeup degrade their looks by covering their face with too much makeup or the wrong color combinations. 

    The bottom line is, less is more attractive to me.  I like seeing the beauty of the lady.  One more point is if it is someone that I am going to be kissing, I really would rather kiss her skin before having a mouth full of chemicals.  Sorry but women have been fooled into believing that putting all the different makeups on that they will be more stunning.  Someone lied to you.  Show your true beauty, it is much more attractive.

    A woman looks great ... only to those who cherish her.

    Makeup should enhance one's beauty ... it can be light or heavy, depending upon what the ones who love you ... like.

    Turning into 'something' you are not ... is not Makeup ... its a joke.

    I think makeup is necessry for women. We all know that all women are crazy about beuty. Makeup can enhance one's beauty in a wonderful way. However, there is no need to try some exaggerated makeup in our daily life.

    No makeup! It's a spiral of undermined confidence.

    Spending time each day minutely searching for what's "wrong" with our face, and trying to cover it up just feeds the feeling that you can't go out without it! All done closer than anybody else will ever examine your face, often with a magnifying mirror.

    Instead, try spending 10 minutes a day thinking about all your positive qualities. Then leave the makeup industry in the gutter where it belongs :-)

    I agree with arksys - I prefer no makeup, natural beauty is best. A little makeup is okay (hide the blemishes and whatnot) but women who pile the makeup on layer after layer is a definate turn off. You gotta wonder what they're HIDING under all that stuff.

    I try to wear as little and natural (yet fun) make-up as possible. I like the feeling of having my skin breathe through cosmetics.

    To achieve my everyday look, I try to have a clean and hydrated facial skin. I then put on tinted moisturizer, cream blush, brown liquid eyeliner, lip gloss that is two shades darker than my natural lip color, and clear mascara.

    It depends what they are trying to achieve. Makeup can really change a woman's face for good or for bad. No wonder there is a such a huge makeup industry with a million and one consultants to chose from.

    should wear just enough makeup.

    not too much
    nor too little.
    just right amount of makeup.

    I hate photoshopped faces!

    I personally think that this depends on the occasion. I guess if someone's going to a dark, night theme party, then lots of makeup would actually work (at least for me). A little makeup when going to a morning event. Light makeup works best when prepared the right way. Well, I don't wear any makeup when I got to the grocery.
