    No makeup

    http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beaut...-it-up-446538/

    I saw this article posted on another board, and was rather surprised (though I guess I shouldn't have been) and how many guys felt that most women look horrible without makeup. I think I would like to see more women go without makeup. Plenty of ladies of Foo have proven that it isn't a requirement to be beautiful, and I doubt those guys would feel that way if they weren't so used to seeing women plastered with it constantly in the media and real life. What do you think?

    it's like the exact opposite of tabloids.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    The guys who ***** the loudest about women without makeup never seem to be cover model material themselves, I've noticed. Some of them even think it's a compliment to tell me I'd be "hot" if I "did that girl stuff, you know, with the makeup and stuff" and one told me I was "aging gracefully." I WAS TWENTY EIGHT!!!! And he was the one with the receding hairline, too.

    (Seriously, dude, you want me to spend an hour and $90 worth of assorted gunk on my hair, face, nails, etc, and you can't be bothered to (a) take a damn shower, (b) wear a shirt that does not have any holes or food stains, or (c) talk to me as though I'm an intelligent adult? You sure do have a high opinion of whatever you've got in your pants if you think I'm going to overlook all of that; and trust me, yours is not as great as you think it is even if you knew how to use the damn thing. ).

    ((What? I'm talking about the bike multi-tool in his pocket ))

    Hmm. This rant brought to you by a combination of final exam stress, a lack of chocolate, and a distinct need for a really good, hard...

    Several studies have shown that men do unconsciously prefer women with makeup. So maybe you guys do consciously prefer no makeup, but there is that little animal part of you that responds to makeup that mimics the changes that happens to a woman's face and body when she is ovulating (e.g. bigger eyes, rosier cheeks, fuller lips, etc.).

    edit: also remember, there is good makeup and BAD HORRIBLE makeup. Most of the guys who I know who say they prefer "no makeup" actually prefer women with the subtle kind of makeup that enhances features rather than hides them. When the same women go without makeup, they say they look "tired" or "stressed."

    personally I can't stand the feeling of having something, other than oil, on my skin, even bug repellant and sun block lotion.

    The whole "erase face, spackle, fill, repaint" school of makeup is most common around here. It's kind of freaky, especially on the eighteen year olds. They all look like clones.

    However, rant notwithstanding, I will admit that I have resorted to a bit of undereye cover-up lately, just so people (mainly my female friends) don't freak out and assume I'm half dead of exhaustion, or that The Boy is beating me. (Final exam season + very pale skin = not much sleep and instant black eyes). It will be better once I've had some bike time and some sun.

    But I will still bite anyone who tells me I "should" wear makeup!

    Oh I certainly don't mind subtle, well-done makeup. And I doubt most men like that plastered-on, overly fake looking makeup we see so much in the media. But our society has told women that their imperfections need to be covered up in order to be attractive enough. That's the part I don't like. I also wonder if some womens' skin would look really nice without makeup...if they hadn't worn a lot of makeup all their lives. Surely going makeup-less would be better for the complexion.

    I prefer none as well, but the line is definitely crossed when you can tell that makeup is in play. (Not even touching the point when the makeup could be peeled off as one continuous mask...)

    With that beard I can only imagine how much trouble you have applying foundation and not have it look over the top.

    You eyes look very natural though.

    Makeup is an art form. If done right it looks good. Otherwise, if done badly can look really, really bad. Really bad examples of this that come to mind are Tammy Bakker in the 1980s.

    Look at any picture of a woman in makeup from the 70s, 80s, or the 90s, or even an individual's makeup preference over the years, and tell me that getting makeup permanently tattooed on is a good idea.

    ^^Damn it man! You could have put a warning before that pic. I'm trying to fill my head with good images before I go completely blind. That ^ monstrosity just wiped out a years worth of Playboy!

    And I prefer no make-up or the natural look. No garish, demented clown jobs for me. An example would be Mimi from the Drew Carey show.

    Make up or not?












    I prefer not to wear anything. I feel fake when I wear it and have found that I feel better about myself when I let me shine through. I don't understand the need to hide who we are.

    I dislike women that use makeup excessively, but it can make a beautiful woman even more so when done right.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces
