I prefer natural to make up. In fact, I've seen some who so overdo their make-up, it's actually repulsive.

For a lot of people, makeup is a form of expression. Not to cover anything up, but to create something new. Then you have those people like me who have foundation on because their skin is so sun sensative.

I never wore make-up until I was in my 40s and was told by a supervisor at work that "all
the other women are uncomfortable because you don't wear make-up ... we think you should
conform and wear make-up!"

I was dumbfounded ... wow ... eventually, I caved and wore make-up while I had that job ...
which was about 10 years ... then went back to my "no make-up" stance ... I HAVE make-up
and CAN wear it, for example, when going to have my picture taken! as in the "mother of the
bride" photos ... my class reunion photos ...

people frequently ask me how my skin has remained so nice ... shrug ... I don't pour garbage
onto it daily???

I prefer the no make up, But some times its nice when a woman dresses up and uses some make up just to add some color. But when its soo thick that it looks like a clown mask its a huge turn off. Also when a woman uses alot of make up they don't want you to kiss them so it won't ruin it. I also noticed that when a woman don't use alot of make up her skin is much nicer. The more make up they wear the more they have to use it to cover up the skin blemishes.

Fairoaks,Its one thing to see them on the screen with make up. Its totaly diffrent to see them in person. Sometime when you see them in person you can't even recognize them. Using a little make up is one thing to use it when you can actualy see the lines where the make up starts and end at the neck line or by the ears is just wrong. There is what I would call tastefull and then there is gross... But then I do know guys that want that sorten look where the women would need to use heavy fundation and lots of make up.

God does not make ugly people. The fact that people are trying to change the way God made them look is where I'm going. God is perfection. We are children of God. So we were made fearfully and perfect. People do not need make up to be beautiful, god is beautiful and we are children of God so we as well are beautiful

I need a pair of those rose-colored glasses!

RE: #35 - Big difference between needing it and overdoing it.
