I don't really like girls who wear makeup. (mascara, eye shadow, foundation, gloss)

Every girl is facing an enormous amount of expectations coming her way (boys too, I'm sure, but I don't know a boy's situation good enough). There's always somebody at the ready to point out flaws etc, whether it be friends, others, magazines, tv, commercials etc. Every girl is dealing with this issue in her own way. There is no quick fix to be found, and at some point, a girl, let's say her name is Susanna, finds out that being a "snob" beats being a slob every time, whether she like it or not. She discovers that people are nicer when a her appearance is nice, and her manners are good, and secretly she's giving credit to her mama who taught her on how to be a lady. She's grateful for learning how put on her make up properly, dress modestly and nice and that she was given a raising in a christian home...and...well, I don't know what it is like in other parts of this world, but I take pride in my faith, appearance and manners, including make up...and I don't think Jesus will mind.

BUT, in this personal discovery I noticed that I am a minority. Most guys like the girls on the right more than the ones on the left.
.
Wow, yeah, you belong to the minority. But reading your message here made me see that you are a deep person who sees through physical appearance, unlike many guys now, who only see physical beauty.

I used to not wear a lot of makeup. I still don't wear " a lot" of makeup; however, I've been experimenting with eye shadows more. :) But I do think there should be a balance. I don't have a perfect skin, so I do wear makeup to go to work or when I go out (unless I'm just running short errands or things like that). Nothing too fancy, but I at least cover some imperfections. I think there's nothing wrong with it, and it's mostly a cultural thing. I don't consider tribal face paint attractive, but hey, some people do in other places in the world!
I think it only becomes problematic when you can't bear to even be at home without wearing any makeup. Nothing wrong with feeling pretty, but just as with anything else, it can become an idol.

The less makeup you wear, the more real you is exposed.
Beauty is not from without, but from within.

The superficial worry about outward appearance that they might be accepted, only to find the inside may be rotten to the core. It is what is inside the car that makes it go places, not how it looks.

But to make the claim "I really don't like girls with makeup" excludes about 95% of the women on this planet. Really, it's unrealistic to find that naturally beautiful goddess who has perfect skin and never wears makeup and is comfortable in her own skin. That kind of woman doesn't exist until she is much older and holds her identity as her own, and if she is younger then she is 1 in a billion. Sad, but true.
95% of all young women on this planet don't feel comfortable in their own skin?? That's extreme. Well, if make-up fixes up that statistic, then feel free...

Wearing make up is not a big deal. Ladies wear make up for the purpose of enhancing their beauty and sometimes to hide their imperfections. I have nothing against it since i wear make up on daily basis for work. :)

I never wear makeup, but I get why some women wear it. I have a lot of skin flaws, and it probably wouldn't hurt to blend it in a little better, but I just don't really care.

Personally, I like the no makeup look best too. I think mascara and eye makeup makes women look more mean... it can emphasizes a catty glare at another woman, lol.

But yeah, It's all about preferences. Some men like women to wear makeup, some men like a little, and some men don't like any, and some just don't care why they find a woman attractive, they just like what they like. Thankfully there are all types of women out there. Someone for everyone, and all that. :)
And lucky for me, my BF prefers the no makeup look too.

:D

Interesting you should use the word "catty" in that post. Someone was referring to a woman modeling a certain kind of ring and I thought the mascara around her eyes made her look like a startled puma. :rolleyes:

Depends on what the makeup means to the woman. If she just wants to enhance her beauty, fine. If she's highly materialistic, no.

The same sign can mean something different. It's all about context.

So yeah I wasn't a fan of make-up untill I was in high school.. due to not looking like a high schooler I tried make-up to look older. Now that I am older I still pretty much look the same almost...but what's more important is my personality then looks that's what makes me older then what people see :)

One of my favorite bible teachers has a saying..."if your barn needs painting? Paint it! If it needs two coats? Give it two coats.

At least your make-up wasn´t needed to get your driver license. Ha! ha!

Why do you like (now) to work with old people? Just curious. :confused:

Wearing makeup to enhance beauty and hide imperfections is one thing but some women can get carried away. Yikes!

Based on the OP and some of the other posts, I have a question. Is there a time when it's inappropriate NOT to wear makeup? Like having some sort of super huge scar or a nasty zit or....something?

I can't imagine.


But as I was discussing with someone else about this, my biggest conclusion was. When a woman closes her eyes and imagines herself, her face, her image unto herself, in her mind's eye etc: Is she wearing makeup?

Therefore does she need makeup to complete the internalized concept of who she is?


I am friends with a beautiful young woman who I dated a few years ago. she struggled with her idea of herself, because she had a scar on her face, and surgeries to repair it. However, it was only in the last 3 years ish, that she began to sort of own it, instead of hiding it or concealing it from others.


So, getting back to what you said, in a previous post Steph, I think there is a maturity and a self awareness and confidence that will either eventually form or not. :)
