Very often I hear or read things that say : “10 makeup trends guys hate” or just generally saying that guys prefer girls with no makeup. I am a little bit sick of hearing things like this so I decided to speak out myself and tell my perspective on this topic.
To wear makeup or not is only your choice. Do what makes you happy and feel better about yourself as long as it doesn’t harm anyone. That is the most important thing to remember. No one should tell you different.
These articles and guys often say that makeup is like false advertising. I disagree, because we didn’t choose what our faces will look like, but it is our choice to make them how we would like, so makeup is even less of a lie than wearing no makeup (no offense to someone who doesn’t wear makeup, I applaud to you and really respect and admire).
And the long discussed thing about wearing it only for other people. In my case, I can easily deny it. I like putting it on. Even if I don’t do much, that is what usually gets me out of bed, because every morning I am that excited. If I don’t feel like it, I won’t even bother. I often try different makeup looks, even if I know I won’t be leaving my house that day.
One thing that I do find to be great, is having one makeup free day a week. You can let your skin breathe and also train yourself to accept yourself with all your flaws.
What are your thoughts on the topic? Do you ever feel pressured to wear makeup?
