    I don't wear makeup, mostly because I don't think I do a good job putting it on.

    Is it considered insecure to want to see how a woman really looks?
    That's what bothers me. I want to see the real thing, instead of some fake image.
    I'm marginally less bothered by crazy colorful hair, as oppose to "natural" hair dye, because it's obviously not an attempt to pass for something real. The same goes for most other forms of cosmetics. It's more artistic than, say, and attempt to make people think you are someone you're not.

    That being said; I just don't like lipstick altogether.

    You feel that way too? I was wondering why that bothered me.

    After writing down the post a bit, I think in general the reason I don't like makeup is that the colors and contrast produce a similar reaction as if, say, the person was sick and a bit green or blue. Lips that are a bit too red or magenta, tanned skin, cheeks that are reddish all the time, eyes with too much contrast, etc. are showing colors that I don't regularly see on people, they all look a bit off, so the part of my brain processing appearance is repelled by the way makeup looks.

    Some makeup, such as tans (Real tans do this as well), and eye stuff, also make a person's skin look a lot thicker and more leathery, almost as if it is a plastic coating, which is off putting as well. (People who naturally are colored brown don't have this appearance to them as someone who is suntanned to a shade of brown, I'm not completely sure why.)

    It always baffles me when guys say they don't like makeup on women. Looking like a clown is one thing, but when properly applied most men like makeup on women. The best applications are the ones you can't even tell that they have it on. I hardly believe that people find acne scars or other blemishes attractive.

    If I had the resources, I'd gladly spend an hour being gloriously primped before I go out. If I could, I'd walk about everyday as if I were going to a Hollywood premiere. I just like getting dressed up.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I find trust, honesty, and reliability attractive. I don't want someone that's only attractive because they waste hours and tons of money trying to artificially alter themselves for a limited time. I'd rather have someone that's honest and comfortable with not looking very special...
    Also, this perfect makeup application you speak of is very rare. Most people with makeup on look like people with makeup on. To make matters worse, I could rub my hand all over their faces and watch their image smear.
    Am I the only one bothered by that?
    No, acne scars are not pretty, but I think a lot of people actually look rather nice when they are natural.

    Here is a picture of me when I was about 14. Too bad thinner eyebrows weren't in style at that time.

    Oh yeah and I also David Bowie. He looks amazing for an old geezer!:

    I don't think wearing makeup prevents anyone from having these traits. Unless you view wearing makeup as being dishonest?

    I think most women who wear makeup are comfortable with their looks. Just because a woman wears makeup doesn't mean she's insecure or hiding something. Makeup can also enhance what's already there. And as Pinkpiranha and Jen already pointed out, makeup is art form and the canvas is the human body. Just because you think it's a waste doesn't mean it is.

    It's nice when done right, but I other wise couldn't care less. Besides, don't women get all prettied up for other women, not men?
