    I've always wondered the motivation behind girls suggesting this...There were girls in high school who were suggesting doing this as well...so it seems to start after puberty when the girls start seeing males as sexual objects...

    Is it some kind of fetish or some act of domination to feel good\powerful? Or an attempt to make the male look less intimidating\threatening?

    It feels some kind of a power play to me...

    Long story short, NO!

    Wont be long before men join us on this front, I feel

    Hell, they already steal all my skincare products. I think most of the objections they have to wearing make up is a) it takes skill to do it in a way that looks natural, and b) they have this preconceived notion that make up means electric purple eyeshadow and ruby red lips, or something.

    Most don't seem even aware of the fact that when they say they prefer a girl *without* make up, they actually mean 'natural looking' or 'nude' make up. Make up is awesome wrt hiding bags, rashes, discolouration, accentuating your natural features in non-visible ways, and generally looking fresher and more put together. Any news caster, male or female, for instance *is* wearing a bunch of make up for this very reason. You don't want to know how often I point out to my bf that the male news caster, or show host is wearing a slightly pink lip gloss, which then of course freaks him out....

    But yeah...it does take practice to get it right, to the point where people just believe that you look this awesome naturally

    Yeah, I like women with light-makeup...That accentuates eyes in particular...Heavy makeup feels fake to me somehow...

    Ohhh when properly done, it can be awesome for dramatic effect or for like a mysterious, glamorous, fairy tale look - but again, that require a certain mastery - and the right attitude/setting to pull it off

    The easiest thing to do with make up, is go for the pretty pretty colours, and apply them without knowledge of how to get the best effects. It's also the easiest way to get guys to go 'ewwww, girls with make up look so fake'

    For instance:


    This person could probably benefit from some tips on how to get your eyeliner to cooperate, how to coordinate colours and how to play with light and shadows - not to mention a lipliner that matches their lipstick and eyebrow liner matched to the colour of their actual brows.


    Next, keeping in mind your setting/audience is...rather important:



    Done extremely well, but clearly meant for the cat walk or for performance where you need to overdo your make up in order for it to make an impact while on stage. Replicating this for every day wear....not a good idea



    Thought this would be interesting to post here to give an idea of the impact make up can make


    Also:



    Heavy make up, using natural/neutral tones, which most guys seem to prefer - though a bit heavy on the blush, perhaps


    vs





    Dramatic eye catchers, done extremely well. Perfect for an evening look

    I like the last one better (though it's still heavy for my taste)...Her eye lashes are already thick, they don't need additional thickening by mascara IMO...

    Ok, what you're seeing and probably remarking on are in actuality false lashes, which give that feathered, over the top, voluminous effect - that, along with voluminizing mascara. If you do a smokey eye without mascara, it looks actually rather creepy as mascara is your basis for definition, and your lashes are the only thing that add a vertical dimension to the complete ensemble. Removing that would give all horizontal lines, ageing you significantly and giving a kind of scary effect.
