Okay, so I am known to be VERY girly and diva like. I love makeup, shopping, hanging out with the guys, doing my hair, nails, etc. Typical girly things. I don’t have low self esteem where’s though , I don’t think I look pretty with out makeup. I just LOVE make up. For me it’s my fun time, it relaxes me, I enjoy doing it, etc. Now I know you girls especially always hear form men “you don’t need make up you’re beautiful without it” okay yes men, most of us know that. BUT it just gets annoying when they always mention it. For example like they’re not use to wearing makeup so they don’t really understand. Make up was created to enhance your beauty. That’s what I mainly use it for and also because I am just in love with doing make up. Which is why I am thinking about becoming a makeup artist. Also with like hair extensions like who the f-ck cares ? what is the big deal ? Some men make such a big fuss about girls wearing hair extensions or weaves. Like I don’t know about most girls but how I look reflects on how I feel about myself. I wear makeup because its fun doing it, I like wearing hair extensions because there are way more hair styles I can do , I like dressing pretty because I feel pretty. Make sense? I just don’t get why most people just can’t get that. I also wanted to add I am not hating on the females that go all natural , that’s cool if that’s your thing, totally not judging. But for the girls like me who love wearing makeup doesn’t mean we’re insecure , we just love it and I think most people just assume we wear makeup to cover up ugliness? (some girls do lol but not all) I don’t know , I guess I just never seemed what the big deal was. I get that guys like girls to be all natural but it’s like my god we have to do everything to please you what about what we like, why can’t you guys just accept some women like makeup way more than other women?
You go girl! Seems like you have very valid reasons for liking what you like, and no one else can tell you not to like it! I myself am very much the opposite - I don't use any make-up at all, I just never have had the patience for it - but I wouldn't force my dislike of it onto someone who clearly likes it! And that's awesome that you wanna be a makeup artist - for fashion? or theater or movies or something?
I think you are absolutely right! There's no reason why you shouldn't be allowed to like being girly!
Personally, I don't ever wear make up, but that's because my dad forbid it to enter the house growing up and I don't know how make up works.... But if you like something, feel free to like it! Just be respectful of other people's opinions and if you feel someone has a problem with you, talk to them about it calmly, but directly, and try harder to understand how they feel, than you try to get your point across.
I get what you mean! Usually I don't use that much make up (I'm too lazy), but when I go to a party or something I like to put some make up and all other girly stuff. And I do it because it makes ME feel prettier and more confident! So yeah, it feels bad if a guy says "you look pretty but you wouldn't even need any make up". Cause I'm not doing it for getting attention from guys but to make me feel better about myself. Although I think girls should be careful with make up, cause too much of it just doesn't look natural anymore. But I'm saying, don't care about what others say, just do like you feel! If you feel better with make up and nails done and hair extensions, that is just fine :)
All of us are allowed to be as feminine or masculine as we feel inclined to be. People shouldn't try to make you ashamed of that, because in doing that, they imply that masculinity is inherently better. In short, it's a little sexist. For people who say it's gross, or that natural is hotter, try to understand that they don't want people to do things out of insecurity, or feel required to wear it, but remind them that you don't do it to impress others, you do it as a hobby, a way to relax, and a way to develop your skills and express yourself, much like someone would choose to play an instrument or research an interesting topic.
The problem you're experiencing is that your group of male friends are too critical of your makeup and beauty habits. That behavior is not typical of all men. It may be time to get some fresh blood in the friend pool.
thanks women who don't ware makeup for not being critical and thanks for thinking outside of the box and understanding my point of youand for you men that posted comments on here... if that's how you really feel about women that wear makeup then good for you , I guess it's just not you're type and that's fine (: but there was no need to be rude and say that some women should go to the circus I mean I get that way too much is a little much but hey, if she's rocking it can't hate :)
I dont see nothing wrong about having makeup. Everyone has right to do what they want, and as much they want, if they like to do so. Personally i dont care if women has makeup or not, since i only care about person.
But yes i like to watch beautifull womens, sometimes when i am having bab day, and gorgeus women passes me at streets i get happy in instant reason ? = there is beautifull things everywhere, one of them are womens. And i do hope you can reach your dream and be makeup artist someday.yours - jereman
Since i am a guy, i personally wanna say, we don't like girls at all who gives tonnes and tonnes of makeup on their faces. It grosses us out, no matter how much we say, 'aww, gal ur such a baby doll..bla, bla and shitteries' we don't like it at all. From the inside, we feel like saying, 'Y don't ya go to a circus, clown?'
Give makeup, its fine by us. But not that much, in every f*cking date, hangouts or even parties. And its good to be a fashion designer, makeup artist! :) May Allah, bless you :). Follow your dreams, there will be people trying to bring you down, just ignore!
