Why Men Shouldn’t Be Talking About How Much Makeup a Woman Wears

Earlier this month, a twitter account called @GoogleFacts tweeted out a study conducted having to do with men and their preferences when it comes to women wearing makeup. For some reason, whoever conducted the study thought that it was a good idea to get these opinions from men, who said that they would rather see a girl wear less makeup that have her entire face covered. Except the twitter account did not include any sort of proof to this study, no link to read more information on the study, and basically just included two back to back photos of one model – Miranda Kerr.
Like of course she looks gorgeous either way, so it’s unclear exactly what sort of point the twitter account and whoever is behind it was trying to make.
What I’d like to know is where men get off with having this opinion? Do they really think that a woman wearing makeup is all about what men want? Do they really think that women put all of that work into getting their makeup perfect on a regular basis just to impress a man, or the male population in general?
After this particular tweet was posted, it didn’t take very long for people to start giving very stern opinions about this “study” that was conducted. There were even quite a bit of responses that included pictures or drawn cartoons, like the one above. Basically the above picture is a woman giving the response of “you consume too much oxygen” when a man tells her that she would look better if she wore less makeup. Other responses included a woman saying “if men prefer less makeup, then they should wear less makeup”, meaning that men shouldn’t wear makeup if they don’t want to, but it has nothing to do with how much makeup a girl should wear. To be honest, most women think that it’s none of their business.
Here’s the truth about this whole “too much makeup” thing, for all of you clueless men out there who might be interested in learning a thing or two about it. The majority of women do not schedule in a good 20-30 minutes or more every morning to put on makeup just to please all of the men that they are going to be in contact with. Though there are certain women who do wear a lot of makeup in the hopes that it will get the attention of a certain man – or a man in general for some – the majority of women don’t even think of men when they’re applying their perfect winged eyeliner and flawless foundation techniques.
The problem is that many men have been seeing these “before and after” pictures of beauty gurus and women who won’t look very pretty to begin with, but once they’re done doing their makeup they become basically completely transformed. Men assume that women are trying to lie to them, and that once you chip away all of that makeup on a girls face they will look like a completely different person. Men say that “this is why we have trust issues, ladies” and things of that nature, as if saying that will make women stop wearing makeup.
The bottom line is that for most women, they wear makeup becuase it makes them feel good about themselves. They like the feeling of knowing that they look good, or they just love the look of a great pallet of makeup and how many combinations of colors they can use to apply on their faces. The possibilities are really endless in the art of makeup application, and that’s what a lot of women love about it. They like looking good, fierce, better than other girls whose makeup might not look as good. It’s not about the male gender at all, and that’s really what men need to understand.
