    This said, I've had girlfriends that wore makeup all the time...and all of the above applied.

    I'm kind of offended! I wear makeup and none of the above apply to me! (except picky eater- I can't really help that since some foods will kill me! )

    I also wear makeup, although not every day and even less frequently "full face," and none of those apply to me either. But I know the kind of babe he's talking about.

    Camping is one of my favorite things- can't wait til the kids are old enough to carry a pack so we can do more than "unpack the van into a drive-up campsite" camping.

    I thought the starting post implied make up in an evident way; a similar question to women/girls would be on the line of "Do you like bodybuilders?" - of course fit guys would be liked, but the question is more specific.

    I interpreted the OP as an expression of puzzlement about these d00ds who will abide no makeup whatsoever. The poll invites discussion about the grey areas, which are also condemned by the "nothing whatever" faction.

    You are spot on there imo. When I was younger I was quite the club goer (lived on Miami Beach) and very theatrical at times (for me anyway ), but I have never been a slut or behaved in a slutty manner! I have always been a good girl, but I do like wearing makeup and making an effort where my appearance is concerned.

    I feel happier when I have taken time with myself (no masturbatory remarks here!). Getting up in the morning, taking a shower/washing my hair, blow drying my hair straight, putting contact lenses in and applying makeup makes me feel happy I feel more confident and uplifted. I also want to add that I can do all of that in under an hour (45mins).

    Does that make me a high maintenance person? To some I am sure it does. I wouldn't be happy married to a man that wasn't comfortable with my at times glamorous appearance so I suppose that is why I am not married to such a man.

    I love digging in the dirt and I love to sweat. Give me a high intensity workout where I can burn 800 in an hour any day and I'm there! I'm not much of a camper, although I am not opposed to the idea. I am never critical of outward appearances. Do what you like, like what you do.

    I do not care much about clothing. I am a comfort girl. I am happy wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt, but can on occasion get dressed up. On a normal day as a stay at home Mom with three kids I am lucky if I have the opportunity or energy (that includes taking a shower from time to time) to put forth much effort into how I look, but I am still happy with who I am and I do clean up pretty well.
    Time is a delicate mistress.

    If by makeup you mean just a little to cover the small defects, that's allright
    I'm not sure why people cannot understand there are more categories than "I'm a girl who toughs things out and dislike makeup" and "I like to wear makeup in itself and am a total priss."

    There's at least a third category of fairly scrappy girls who also like makeup. (And for these, context is everything.)

    Apparently the "makeup enjoyment" for this third category is not stemming from the same motivation as it does for the prissy, whiny girls who sometimes can't even handle walking too fast lest they start to sweat.

    It's okay. Just remember that when us males speak about girls that like to wear makeup, we're referring to the total priss category.

    FDG, have you read the thread? There are several guys in here whose comments have been about women who wear ANY makeup.

    I honestly doubt they'd recognize the light makeup you are thinking (and speaking) (and applying) about. Their comments seem to be related to finding psychological roots to applying make-up, which I believe to be utter bullshit.

    Agreed!

    (Some of the comments have seemed more well-meaning than others, though. I do agree especially with Magic Poriferan's remarks about having to put a mask on for The Man, but I don't think most makeup-wearing is about that.)
