many male models do often apply foundation and such when not on the job as I am sure many actors do as well. I know a few makes that wear foundation and concealer to hide acne scars, or uneven skin tone. If done correctly you'll never even notice it's there.
#29 I don't wear make up. All I do is curl my eyelashes and keep my face clean and wear Chapstick and usually people can't even tell that I don't wear it. Guys usually freak out when I tell them I don't and talk about how awesome it is that I go without. So it does still happen, just not very often. When girls wear so much on a daily basis, then they look weird without it and they never look dressed up for big things like school dances and such.
You can completely change the way you look with makeup, but the point of makeup is to highlight the good features you already have and downplay the flaws. If you look like a different person without your day time makeup on then you are doing something wrong. To the men, there are brands of makeup specifically marketed to dudes. However, don't underestimate the ladies it's not always about looks.
116, not every girl has great skin but piling on make up can clog pores and make it worse! I had a friend who used to put loads of concealer on her zits and they would take forever to go away, so make up can definitely be counter productive with the clear skin thing. Not always, but it can be. I am happy that I have mostly clear skin though!
This is why I find make up so deceiving. It's so powerful that drag queens get mistaken for actual women.
Well now you know who to avoid. You don't want someone that rude, or someone who is only going to be interested in your looks.
"If you can't handle me at my worst, you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe was a girl who was marketed and portrayed as a sex icon. She was not a slut. And even if she did have lots of sex, who the fuck cares? Why is it still so taboo for people to have active sex lives? Marilyn Monroe was a girl who was sexually assaulted by the man she was in love with, and was made to look like a sex object by the media. How she died and whether she had more sex than the average girl likes to reveal should have no impact on whether what she said is repeated by insecure girls everywhere. Even if she didn't say that particular quote.
Wow. You must usually wear an awful lot of makeup in order to prompt such remarks...
It's crazy how much make up girls in my school wear. I chose not to wear a lot, just a concealer and foundation. My boyfriend prefers it that way. I feel like a lot of make up should be used for special occasions, so what happened to OP doesn't happen often. Just my two cents though
I don't necessarily think that it's overrated, but I do think that quite a few girls use waaay too much of it. People aren't supposed to be able to tell when you're wearing makeup. I usually just use eyeliner, mascara, and lipgloss unless I have something special going on. I personally don't see the need to wake up 30 minutes earlier just so I can get my makeup done, and I doubt I ever will.
I've never been a make-up wearer. I like sleeping too much. I wore some to prom, homecoming, the occasional eyeliner & mascara for photos so my eyes show up, and my wedding. I avoid the sun & wash my face regularly so, even in my thirties, I don't need concealer or foundation.
@95, but there's a point where it's just too much. You shouldn't look like a completely different person without makeup. Makeup is meant to enhance what you have. People shouldn't be staring at you in shock over how different you look sans artificial beauty. Some girls use makeup as a crutch, and they really shouldn't. We need to be able to feel confident without make too.
I think that makeup has been used to the point that I seems necessary or your "not pretty" with isn't true and that is what is sad. makeup should be used to compliment ones face and be used for times like special occasions. on a regular occurrence I suppose a small amount is okay just have to keep in mind that even without that makeup doesn't make a girl any less pretty...
Am I the only one here that actually thinks that girls generally look more attractive with only a little make-up or barely any at all? I know some girls that can look attractive with make-up, but not necessarily any more attractive than they are normally; they just look different. Conversely, there are some girls that simply wear too much, but by that I don't mean they look completely different, I mean they look like clowns. I don't mean to sound offensive in any way :/ , but I find it sad when I notice a girl that has a reputation around school for being attractive, and somehow presumably out of a self-conscious desire to maintain that reputation, they begin putting on ridiculous amounts of make-up, to the point where it's not even attractive anymore. Anyways, I'm just surprised that I'm not finding any comments that agree with my feeling that girls look prettier when they look natural; whether that means applying only a little make-up and avoiding stuff like eyeliner, or just not putting any make-up at all.
