Hi girls and boys, I adore make up and think its just brilliant, so why do so many women hate it and think it horrible, i have so much of it and enjoy wearing it its not a horrible feeling to wear it like some women think. I feel beautiful with it on.. i am lucky that i can get away with not wearing it so i have been told but i think women look nicer with it...I understand the time factor for most that they dont have the time to apply it but it all depends what you wear as long as i have light eyeliner on (which takes less then a minute), i am happy........i cant understand the negetive in make up as for most it just enhances your own beauty......for me its a god send...Let me know what you think good or bad i am very open minded of other people's views thats you men too...thanks....x

I know what you are talking about! I love makeup and it's a personal preference. I don't hate the concept of looking "natural" but I hate it when some girls are like, "oh you wear makeup? I would much rather to go natural." God, it just sounds so much like an insult! I think everyone's personal preferences should be well-respected.

I just plain old don't really like it. I do think that liquid make-up feels horrible. I tried it before, but it felt like I had on a mask. A lot of women look like they have on a mask, I think, because they wear too much makeup. I think I look fine without it. And then there is just the thought of it. My Mom is a natural blonde, with light-blonde eyelashes and eyebrows. When I was growing up, she wouldn't go anywhere without makeup on. I've known lot of women like that. Me, I just am going anyway. I would hate to feel like I had to be made up to go out. That's one of the stupidest things women have done to themselves. That and bras, but that's another story! lol

I really don't understand how anyone can really HATE a product unless it has hurt them in some way, but I know what you mean, there are women that truly HATE makeup and are like, against it's production. I think alot of that might be extreemist feminists that think that makeup somehow degrads women. I think that is ridiculous but everyone has the right to thier opinion. I don't think women that don't have time really hate makeup, I think what they have is thier lack of time when they see someone who did have the time. Alot of people don't have enough time for anyhting these days. I personally love makeup. To me the most important makeup item is concealer. I don't often wear alot of eye makeup but I always use concealer and powder and bluch to make my skin look nice. I alao like eyebrow liner, but I don't use it all the time, mostly jsut when I have made a mistake plucking and am trying to grow some back.

i guess because simple and natural look is the in thing nowadays. besides some women like myself can be allergic to cosmetics. and some just look good even without it. make-up is good if applied properly. besides too much of everything is never good.

I used to be one of those women that hated make-up. What changed me ? My job. I just got a job as a teacher and considering the fact that i don't have a very mature face make-up was my only solution . Now i think i can say i am an expert with make-up. I can make-up myself in less than 3 min.

i think that some women hate make up is because either they are pro animals or they are pretty enough that they don't need artificial things to make them more prettier or they have a pretty bad experience with make up or they are allergic to make up. sure there are tons of reasons out there why some women hate to wear make up. if i were a woman, i would frankly tell you my opinion, but since i am a guy, i can only think of the possibilities why some women don't like to wear make up. well, there it is, i gave my voice to the masses and to you. i hope that that atleast give you an idea why some women hate to wear make up.
