Haven't read the thread yet, but...

No... Really. Have you seen "Glamor Photography Studio" photographs of some people's S/O's on their desks?

Some people really do look better without makeup.

Some people look good in complex Victorian lingerie, some do better wearing nothing but a button and a bow. If you figure out your place in that spectrum then you'll probably look a lot nicer.

/ dammit, if you're happy, you're already going to *own* anyone.

I think there's pressure for girls to look a certain way, to meet a standard.

Why do girls wear make up and perfume? Because they're ugly and they smell bad.
 
2013-03-08 01:11:08 AM  
I've never particularly cared whether girls wear makeup or not.
It's not like I don't see the difference, and no doubt it can look nice, but at the same time it doesn't actually alter the things that I find attractive about them.

The way I look at it, if you can't tell whether a girl is hot whether she is wearing makeup or not, you're in for a lot of coyote ugly moments.

How is not altering your looks at all "trying to meet her standard"?  I'd just call it looking like yourself.

I hate to break it to them, but boys at that age, probably not looking at the girl's face all that much.


Had a girl in my senior year of HS who would sometimes come to school in a skintight catsuit with no bra, no panties. It was good, my friends, so very good.

I prefer women who don't wear makeup.  My wife hasn't worn makeup since her sister made her up in their teens.

I, on the other hand...

I find it a bit funny to see that "operation beautiful" still focuses on external imagery, requiring compliance to the mass ideal of en vogue beauty...

She decided on a standard that she's pressuring other people to meet. If you like wearing makeup and someone pressures you not to, you're altering your looks to meet someone else's standard.

Who knows, maybe she naturally has a great complexion and it pisses her off that other girls can look like they do too with a little makeup. Maybe she found out someone she doesn't like has rosacea or something and wants to expose the truth about that biatch for all to see.

This is Texas.

If EVER there were a case better than Texas for "ok, this is not good, looking like my failed real-estate mom" or a televangelist's wife...

If you're pretty with it... Go for it. If it's forced, then don't. It might make for a better-looking world.

Girls don't put on makeup and clothes to impress boys.

SuperNinjaToad: AirForceVet: I'm cool with the girls not wearing make-up. They really should show their natural beauty as they're only so young for so short a time.

/Oh, we're talking about high school girls?
//My bad, I thought they were in elementary grades.

I didn't know HS girls wear makeup to school. I would hazard a guess only a small percentage does that anyway. When I was in HS most girls don't wear makeup albeit that was over 20 yrs ago but I doubt the typical HS girl today has change that much since then.


As a highschool girl in that timeframe, I regret to inform you that in fact the majority of your female classmates were caking that shiat by the pound, and then getting themselves high on AquaNet in the girls' bathroom.

Do the womens still do "Big Hair" in Texas?
Like Polly "Kiss my grits" Holliday big hair?

I used to get sent to Waco, TX for business. I went willingly because I wanted to bang the Receptionist's hair.

Really. I just wanted to fark that mountain of hair spray. That was 25 years ago. I doubt she aged well.  Sleep tight with THAT running around your head.

Yogimus: akuma976: Some Crafty ALL the girls gonna sneak some foundation or something on just to stick it to the other girls


Ugh. Flashback to high-school: conservative (i.e. "plain") upbringing, and all the popular girls said "Yeah, we just rolled out of bed with perfect skin, straight hair and lovely lashes." And I BELIEVED them, and I HONESTLY couldn't figure out why I was the only ugly duckling of the world. Had never heard of natural makeup, didn't understand what hairdryers accomplished, had NO CLUE that well-fitting clothes made bodies look better. The Horror. Sure, one well-placed close friendship could have been enough to enlighten me, but I was a social pariah because of the hair/clothes/face thing.

I was twenty-six before I discovered what work goes into beauty, but by then was getting laid often enough that I didn't see the point in adopting the art. Even now I'm sure better clothes would help me get more respect at work, but I feel like a drag queen wearing them. So halfway happy ending. MY man doesn't seem to mind, and it saves us from clutter in the bathroom.

Truth: that's exactly what my finacee refers to it, granted the one picture her family has of her in a dress was a kindergarten picture and she has the universal "I'm ready to kill someone" face in it.

Hoopy Frood: She decided on a standard that she's pressuring other people to meet.


Lol, whatever.  You could argue that from some sort of technical semantic standpoint I suppose, but I think that really just misses the entire point.  Suggesting a voluntary no-makeup clause for ONE DAY is hardly some onerous new standard for girls to meet.  The gesture isn't about setting a new standard, it is about teaching people exactly what the current one entails and what its effects are.


Hoopy Frood: Who knows, maybe she naturally has a great complexion and it pisses her off that other girls can look like they do too with a little makeup.


... or maybe she hates wasting an hour every morning slathering on expensive makeup and thought it might be a nice gesture to drop the act for a day and show guys what girls look like underneath all the work they go through before school?  I think it's a nice idea as ineffectual well-intentioned teenage ideas go, and with luck a few guys will learn a little bit about the intersection between their expectations and the lives of real girls..

Actually, redheads usually need all the makeup they can stand, since the majority of them are either strange looking, or average and forgettable.

FTFA "I just really began to see how I don't need makeup to be beautiful," said Madeline Milby, 17, vice president of the student congress and a senior at PSHS, which is in the Dallas suburbs. "There's so much more to me. It's your personality, your passion and what's inside your heart.

But not your physical appearance, it seems, unless you trowel on the make up.

As someone who loves makeup and spends a crap ton of money on makeup, I regularly go without makeup.

I like giving my face a chance to breathe. And even when I do wear makeup the majority of it goes on my eyes. The only time I ever wear foundation is for pictures (ie family portraits, standing up in a wedding etc) otherwise it is tinted moisturizer mixed with a little illuminator.

Even with my heaviest hand I cannot match the amount of makeup I see some high school aged girls wearing. I have tried (I didn't go out that way) to over use bronzer, tried to give myself that stupid foundation line along the jaw, layered mascara and eyeliner and it did not come close to what they do to themselves. I have no idea what they are doing or who lied and told them that was acceptable.

/it takes me a loooong time to get ready
//I find doing my makeup relaxing

I have never worn more make-up in my life, nor spent so much time getting ready, than I did in my high school years. As a senior, switching into an all-girls school, it was a relief because no one more much make up if any at all and we could boycott shaving our legs and no one cared. Every boyfriend I've had preferred me without make up and I think the real key to make up is to enhance but not change. I like to even out my skin tone with a tinted moisturizer with SPF. Simple is better.

They are also "unique" and "collectable" to fetishists.  It is a marketable attribute. Just keep in shape, and buy a sexy green or black dress when you turn 21, and go to a doctor's convention in vegas.

My wife rarely wears it, but when she does, it's usually with semiformal clothing, so in my mind the two kind of go together.

As a matter of fact, one of the lines I first used on her was that she looked great without makeup.  That and we spoke of books and reading, which she apparently had not talked about with many other dating prospects.

High school in the South? More like 100% (at least when I was in high school) In the morning, the bathrooms were packed usually with girls who weren't allowed to wear makeup to school-putting on makeup. The girls who were allowed would be in there too-putting on more.
