    I think make-up is too overused nowadays by women. I personally rarely put make-up on. Given, I'm still young and probably don't need it yet, I think it's better to show the world the real you. I hate all the time people spend on putting on their make-up and preparing themselves to face the world everyday.

    I too, grew up in a household of mostly women who spends at least an hour every morning getting their makeup on and hair done. I think it's a waste of time. I don't think I should have to make myself up to be considered attractive. People should like me the way I am and if they don't, it's their loss since I've already found my perfect guy who does love me for who I am - with or without makeup.

    I do put makeup on when it's a special event (party, wedding, etc.) but even then, it's very mimimal and very natural, just enough to highlight what I do have.

    Personally, I think makeup should only be used on special occasions since it's not really good for our skin anyways. People should be confident enough to not wear makeup! Anyways, that's my two cents.
    Sorry for any typos, spelling or grammer errors but I'm a bit preoccupied planning my wedding.
    Or if you want to read more about me and help me gain more insight to your world (I do need more experiences in life), feel free to skim through my blog.

    Make-up is an art medium like pencils or watercolor. I happen to like it.

    some of us are actually nice enough to taste test our perfume!

    (actually- I was curious if it tasted as good as it smelled- and it was pretty close! )

    Cooking vanilla. A trick used by ladies back in the day when they couldn't get/afford perfume. Tastes good too.

    But it only counts if you have your own style, not the style that the TV wants you to have.

    Agreed!

    These are the only ones I have online at my gallery. Not great for make-up, really, but I haven't got any of those of me and Jenny posted.

    To be honest my answer w/in this poll took me a little bit longer than I expected. I was stuck on (paraphrased) "just a little to highlight the features", and "well applied". In the end I ended up voting for the latter, and I'm still not entirely sure that I picked the right choice. Many of the women I'm attracted to (at least physically, but often based on more than that) tend to be ESFJ, who are I guess the leaders of the make-up zealous fans (somewhat meant for satire ;-D).

    With that said I can respect the fact that so many women put so much time into looking presentable and the like, but it does get a little extraneous sometimes. As a whole, women do put too much credence into looking like something they're not I suppose, and that's obviously not something to be advocated.

    The thread starter had asked what males' main problems are with this, and to be honest, I think it's a feeling of shame with one's self. Men don't have to do nearly as much as women seem to think they need to, and maybe men will be more conscious of what they do or say in regards to their women so as not to invoke any fury emotionally, as maybe they feel their women have no interest in them physically, and thusly what's underneath is their last card left (not to say that judging someone based on their persona [relationship wise] is a bad thing). Even I think I'm sort of talking out of my ass right now to be frank, lol..., but, I am somewhat of a pseudo-grunge zealot , and I suppose if I had some sort of beauty queen for a girlfriend I'd be constantly paranoid regarding our relationship; I'd be constantly feeling like she was going to break up with me. Obviously make-up can't really induce these sorts of feelings on its own but if it would enhance a woman's image that greatly I do think it would play some sort of component involved w/ this theory.
