    I used to have this idyllic notion of: by applying makeup to oneself, it essentially covers up one's true beauty synthetically. Cute. Heh. I voted for natural, but have an inclination towards the natural/makeup if applied correctly. I honestly, for the longest time, could not notice makeup for the life of me (context: my girlfriend). Whether she applied it on or didn't, the details were rather minute to me. By the way, I wouldn't recommend saying that. She and I talked about it afterwards and I learned two things:

    She likes the natural mineral stuff and I found out that she likes to feel/look nice. How could I argue with that? I've become more perceptive to whether she applies some or not overtime, but either way, it boils down to this:

    I think makeup can be aesthetically beautiful and I appreciate that as artistic expression.

    That said, it matters not to me if a woman wears it or not. It is part of her self-expression, and I am more interested in accepting that as it is than judging her for something she is not.

    I voted Plain Jane because that choice reflects some aspect of my values.

    My sweetie does not wear makeup, and I am happy that is so. I think she is lovely as she is, and yea, I may be biased. I value the experience of her natural being. Between us, it speaks to lack of artifice and greater intimacy, even if does not mean this for anyone else.

    I like being able to touch and kiss her face without concern but for the touching and kissing. That also means that I feel, smell, and taste her as she is, and that is joyous pleasure to me. Makeup would take away from that.


    cheers,
    Ian

    I knew someone who wore lots of make-up, and I used to enjoy smearing it and messing it all up in the process of... well, y'know, in the process. And I thought she kinda looked even hotter like that... haha...

    No. It gave me a laugh and vaguely turned me on.

    I've always said that if I ever win the lottery I will throw out my makeup. I only wear the bare minimium (mascara and lipstick) required to get by in the workplace. For more on the origins of my perspective, read "The Beauty Myth" by Naomi Wolf.

    The best moments in life is when a man thinks a woman is not wearing makeup and is " naturally beautiful", when in reality, she has strategically applied a ton on. It's called "No-Makeup Makeup".
