    I know this girl who sometimes wears tons of black make up around her eyes. I never look at her for long enough to check where exactly the black stuff is, but I think it's sort of on her eyelids and under the eyes, probably with blacker eyelashes as well.

    I dont understand why she does it. She is fairly good looking anyway, adding the make up makes her less attractive, IMO.

    Any girls want to shed some light on what this black stuff is?

    I think the logic is, some make up looks good, so surely lots of make up looks better? A grave mistake obviously.

    That and to plaster over a spotty face.

    To some girls I know, walking out of their house without make-up is like walking outsie with no clothes.

    1) You are generalising. Not all girls wear make up, not all girls who do wear make up wear masses of it.

    2) Girls don't necessarily wear make up for men. I wear make up because it makes me look and feel better.

    OP, have you seen a girl without make up before?
    Seconded. OP, you can't say you think girls are 'really attractive' without make up when what you most likely think is no make up is actually just well applied, subtle make up.

    I wear make up for myself - because I think I look better and it makes me feel more confident. Not for guys, or anyone else.

    We don't all wear loads of makeup, and I could not care less how much makeup I have compared to someone else - I've lived my whole life with less and could happily go on as such.

    wow

    If a girl is ugly she should just accept her lot in life and move on. Plastering themselves with cheap make up from Superdrug will not convert men into genuinely thinking they are attractive.

    When I think of such women in make up I think of prostitutes.

    Yeah thanks, it certainly looks like liquid liner. Why would a girl suddenly choose to wear it one day in a week? I know everyone is different, but what could be a reason? Moodswing? Hiding a blemish? Most of the week she has just clean eyes, the liquid liner makes HER look slightly off-putting, as I think she may use slightly more than you do.

    Influence from celebrities- I know the fake tan thing comes from celeb influence.
    Insecurities- I am sooo much more confident and am happy to lose myself in conversation and not want to check my appearance every 5 minutes if I know I have makeup on.
    Fashion- about a year ago, everyone I knew wore heavy black eyeliner as well as most singers that we admired.

    Also, to the men who say they prefer women without makeup, its not that you prefer women without makeup, you just prefer the natural look where the makeup isnt obvious. My best friend (male) cannot tell if I am wearing makeup or not because I work hard to get that polished, blemish free, slight blushing look that some people do have naturally but the rest of us have to work at!

    Hmm I'm not sure, I use it when I don't want to look as plain as I normally do or an outfit that would look better with heavier eye make up like a grungier/rocky type outfit. I love heavy eye make up though =]

    Tbh Id consider myself to be a more attractive than the average girl without make up but put me next to a girl with make up and I dont stand a chance. Its just the world is today, more people wear make up and the more people feel the need to wear make up.

    I read a figure the other day aswell that said women who wear make up are 40% more likely to get a raise.

    It's from the film Almost Famous. If you like that quote, I'm sure you would like that film so I advise that you see it as soon as possible :yes:

    But yeah, bad skin maybe? or the fact that a lot of guys prefer girls with make up, even though some don't.
