Reblog on Tumblr [link] . You may download and post on other sites as long as you credit me (Alexandra Dal), link back to my deviantART or Tumblr (my watermark doesn't count) and do not alter it.

You feeling me, ladies?

P.S. Nobody cares if you don't/rarely wear makeup. Good for you. Typical comment: "I only use 100% organic, natural beeswax on my lips to protect from wind burn and chapping. I collect the wax from the bee colony on my farm and sell it on Etsy. I squeeze some ripe berries and rub the juice on my cheeks for a nice, natural-looking flush and I'm good to go! I don't need makeup to feel good about myself! I have nothing to hide!"

Edit: Sheesh, people. My two cents on the makeup debate on Reddit and other sites: [link] Also, she's frowning because she's being insulted. Duh.

I know that if a person always wears makeup, all the time, then they will look a bit weird without it. Same goes if you never wear makeup and one day suddenly decide to put on a full face of it.

I thought she was frowning because she just got up. It's the same squinty "leave me alone, puny mortal" look I give people when I wake up. =)

how do i express that tumblr and feminism has ruined the term "trigger word" for anyone trying to use it seriously... or that i could care less about what someone who refuses to take legal loopy pills and then wonder why i think they're fucking irritating for being so damn mopy...
regardless though, the whole thing about men wearing makeup being kinda gay, i still stand by, regardless of strikes against my account

Ew, you are gross.
By the way, trigger words send abuse and trauma victims into panic attacks and such. Way to be an asshole to those victims.

My wife pretty much never wears makeup because we can't afford it  so I didn't realize for a long time how much people think women need makeup! Laci Green (sp?) on youtube made me realize that it is hard to be a woman in that respect (already knew it was hard for other reasons) but yea.. what I'm trying to say is women should not be made to feel like they NEED makeup to go out.. I mean there should always be a choice to but it seems that allot of women feel that they can't just go somewhere with no makeup on.
It is probably a little easier for my wife to go without makeup because her lips are very full and red so it already looks like she is wearing lipstick and people think she is lying when she says she isn't wearing any.. but that is beside the point.

Wow. There's always a group of people putting others down. Geeze guys.:/ some people are super thin because the pressure they feel from society and some are just built to be skinny. Some people are just built bigger too. And who gives a shit what men want?! Be what you want whatever that is. Stop putting other people down! You guys are ridiculous.

While I personally don't usually wear any makeup (except for special events) I respect those who do. It honestly depends on the person; some are more suited for makeup, some are not. The point is, I don't it matters. You can have your preferences, but you shouldn't think any less of those that go against them. 
To some, makeup lets them express their creativity, and makes them feel confident.
To some, makeup feels fake and awkward; they feel like they can't do anything without ruining it, and that its constricting.
I think its okay to do what you want, as long as YOU are comfortable with it, and you are not being pressured into anything.

people just think everybody could and SHOULD (?) comment on what women do/wear/say/...

If somebody is thin, they say they should gain weight.
if they are 'fat' they should lose weight.

You act as if it's a fine line.
Men don't actually like ultra thin women, anyway. Evolutionarily, it's unattractive. 
Thin women don't produce babies, and the lineage does not continue.

I don't believe I said anything about that men like/want thin women.
I know that a lot of men don't want the uberthin women,

But sadly the media will always say that something else is better then what you have.
it's very sad that this even exist

I don't wear make up AHAHAHAHA I TOLD YOU ANYWAY

 

but seriously, when I was like, 11 or something? IDK, when I was at that age where I wanted to be MORE LIKE MOM, I wanted to wear some makeup, and she said,

"No, you don't, trust me. Makeup is a slavedriver. Once you start wearing it, if you oversleep or for any reason just don't wear makeup for one day, every one you run into will go 'well what happened to you!?' the longer you can stay off of the GOD AWFUL MAKEUP, the better."

 

However, I do get the opposite problem. Let's say on one particular day I just feel like changing it up a little--so I wear nice, blended eyeshadow or some shit I learned how to do on youtube, people will go WOW HOW PRETTY!!! I know that doesn't sound like it would be obnoxious, but it is. I'd rather that no one ever notice what I look like.

To top it all off, Make up ruins your skin. That's why some girls wear even more make up to cover it all up and then that ruins it even more!
If you stay off the make up and wear it only for special occasions, like your granny's birthday, people would be more impressed and it would make a difference once.
I heard of other friends of mine that they aren't sure about marriage because their boyfriend(husband) would see them without make up in the mornings! 
Kids start doing these things too young :I

Well I would like to say that like some males, there are mostly a group of girls that are like that... And just like guys, there are a few girls who don't act like that. I'm sorry to hear that you had that experience but there are a lot of girls that aren't superficial.


Anyways, I was just curious because the comment seemed out of the norm. :0

So true :P I especially hate how lots of guys preach that they prefer all-natural girls to make-up-toting barbies, but if you don't plaster your face in pounds of gunk and goo, they won't even acknowledge your existence. A few weeks later, you see the same guys going out with girls with make-up so thick it's like a Venetian mask XD
