Oh really? Yes, an ugly women with a personality is better than a beautiful woman with a personality.
You would be right if it was enough for someone to just have a personality.
That is absurd seeing as everyone has 'a personality'.
Everyone's personality is different, and what brings you to like them depends on whether their specific personality is to your liking.
Same with looks really, which is why you can't just use a false dichotomy when it comes to things which are this subjective.
E.g. You may know someone who is absolutely gorgeous and has a great personality, and someone who is not so good looking, but with a great personality too. However, their personalities would not be the same. Your deciding factor would then be based on which one you prefer (assuming you value personality more than physical beauty).
I rarely wear make-up. When I do it is very obvious because I love bright colours and having fun with it. But most of the time I'm too lazy. I have no delusions that I look 'perfect' enough to not wear make-up. I know I always look weird. It just takes time and it always manages to get everywhere. I'm not anti-feminist. I just don't think having a vagina = must wear make-up.
Most of the time i just can't be arsed to wear make-up.... but i think make-up can look really cool, or be used to enhance natural features. What i don't like is when people wear so much of it, you can't actually see their face :P
I think that just like girls wear fashionable clothes to enhance their features, they wear makeup to enhance their facial features and I think it is a good thing. It is another way of showing that a girl cares about how she looks. To me I associate a girl that doesnt wear makeup as being someone that doesn't care about themselves and it usually goes with the hoody trainers type of girl. From my experience boys don't usually go for that.
I don't see anything wrong with makeup, yeah it isn't natural but it isn't anything bad. Everyone seems to think that a girl who wears makeup must be so insecure or lacks confidence, but don't think that actually, maybe the makeup helps her to have more confidence. I don't wear makeup very much except on some special occasions because it irritates my face but to be honest, I'm not bothered about going outside without makeup like some girls are.
Nobody is betraying anyone by not wearing makeup, makeup has nothing to do with how good a feminist is, so I can't really take this writer very seriously at all to be honest.

There are other, much more important ways to look after yourself that don't involve spending time applying make up in the morning when you could be having a nice lie-in.
Also I think a LOT of teenage girls wear hoodies and trainers, and also wear make-up..!
