Why are some men now falling for the hype and suffering from the same vanity?
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.
"Lipstick, powder and a little bit of paint make a girl look what she jolly well ain't."
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!
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.
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
