    Why are some men now falling for the hype and suffering from the same vanity?

      With this I just did; however, why don't you make a question of it and put it up on HPs

    I assume it's because (they) think they look better with it on than without it. :-)

      So they are not sure that they will look better with it. They just do it because they were made to think they look better with it?

      I also believe wearing make-up is seen by many little girls as a "passage to womanhood" as well. The same goes for wearing high heels, nail polish, lipstick, and pierced earrings. Pre-teen and teenage girls view these things as being an adult woman.

      And she better pretends to be something else she's not?

    Because we don't want to scare most people away. Have you seen some women with their make-up? It's extremely frightening. Just a little goes a long way. More is always too much.

      So women, during the non-make up era were scaring other people then? I agree with you though - unprofessionally done and too much of it makes women really look frightening!

      When has there ever been a non-make up era? Even Egyptians with the pyramids wore make up and gave great care about their body scents.

    They must think it makes them look better.  Personally, I have never been big on makeup.  A little bit is fine, but too much just makes a woman look like a painted up clown!  Let people see you, not a painted face! smile

      Do they really look better with it? I think, they don't look better. They just look 'different'.

      I agree....I have heard that most guys prefer a lady without makeup! Ladies did you hear that? ;-) All that makeup may be turning him away, not attracting him to you! Just sayin'........

      Ah, because if women wear make-up to attract men's attention then isn't it deceitful-masking your real look? Not a good idea, is it?

    To look prettier!  Gosh if I went out 'makeup free' during the day I would feel very pale and sickly looking.

      You lnly look pale because of the layers of warpaint covering the skin on a daily basis, so it can't weather naturally.  You can't beat the bloom of nature.

    I can only answer for myself and I choose to wear makeup because I like it!  It's like art- the face is the canvas and makeup provides the color palette.  Even the ancient Egyptians used the mineral kohl to line their eyes and enhance their looks.  I believe to each his/her own.  If a person doesn't like makeup then they shouldn't feel pressured to wear it, and if  a person does like it they shouldn't be criticized for wearing it.

    To feel better about themselves and for others to feel better about them smile
