    Default Women who wear makeup

    I'm a makeup artist and have recently wondered why some men really don't like their women to wear makeup. Is it because they are insecure and don't want other men to notice their SO? I am really trying to understand as my Husband loves it when I get dressed up, style my hair and do my makeup.

    Well, personally, I like make-up and have always seen it as a form of self-expression. I think your husband must have good taste (his wife is a very pretty lady, but don't tell her I said that ). He knows you don't overdo it and that you know how to use it to maximize your advantages. Men who outrightly detest make-up have never been a part of my sphere. I'm a punk so make-up happens, even on the men sometimes. HAHA!

    Is that a picture of you in your profile? If so then you are gorgeous and you did a fabulous job with your makeup and hair!

    That's me, aye-aye! I can brag to my mother now that a make-up artist liked my make-up and hair! Take that, mom!

    No.

    Well, I prefer less makeup on women, as it makes women look more natural, and less tacky. I think women should keep makeup to a minimum, only use it to bring out their features.

    I also suppose being vegetarian does not help me to like makeup, therefore it tends to remind me of not very pleasant things.

    Ya, I think that's what the aim should be too... although I suppose people still differ on how much is needed to draw things out.

    I think you look great, Jen -- you are going to have to teach me the difference between basic lipstick vs lip liner and how they should be used.

    Yes, give us some pointers, Jen.

    Jennifer -- Lip liner will make your make-up life so much easier. I hardly bother with lipstick anymore because liner stays put, doesn't bleed and wears longer.

    Thanks Jennifer and Pink The reason I am asking is that over the years I have had a several clients tell me to tone it down because their boyfriends or husbands hate the way they look with too much makeup on.

    Is it because they are insecure and don't want other men to notice their SO?
    No.. and since I'm a bit offended, I'll throw that one back... I'm not interested in anyone who is insecure enough to feel they need it.

    [/rarrrrwwwwww]

    (In all seriousness, I just prefer women who aren't concerned about things like this. The time and money spent seem generally wasteful, but I see the value for special events, and I suppose for various feature highlights.)

    So you can actually use lip-liner to color in the entire lip area, and not just outline?

    Lipstick really does smear alot.
