Makeup or no Makeup.... that is a good question.


I just saw this on the news. A study on makeup and how women are perceived. I am curious, what do you all think about it?




The research reveals that when viewers saw a female face for 250 milliseconds, women who wore color cosmetics rated more highly in the categories of attractiveness, competence, likability and trustworthiness. However, when participants were allowed to look at the faces for a longer period of time, while the ratings for competence and attractiveness stayed the same, the ratings for likability and trustworthiness changed based on specific makeup looks.

A warm place with no memory.
I never judge a face before the 251st millisecond.

Besides, when the lights are down and you've got a pint of whskey in ya who gives a shit about makeup.

First lady Michelle Obama today flatly denied speculation that the president dyes his hair.
Michelle Obama Denies President Obama Dyes His Hair - ABC News

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama sported two different shades of hair as he hosted Chinese president Hu Jintao in Washington. Making remarks with Hu and other leaders that morning, the Commander-in-Chief, 49, sported the cropped, greying 'do familiar to the country; the President's hair has quickly turned grey since he took the Oval Office two years ago.

As a blond, I look pale and a bit sickly if I wear no makeup at all... Yet I cannot tolerate veranda and potions.... So, I stick to doing my eyes and lips. I find, too, that many people I encounter daily, especially hubby, prefers the madeup looks. Poofy hair is another thing... These seem to be signs of a woman 'taking care of herself' and yet the most moderate applications are most flattering.

I think of makeup in the way I think of making up... A little goes a long way and too much is clownish.

Interestingly, I did a straw poll on my BBM about this. I had two pics. One of which was me being a grown up, make up and shit. The other was a pic of me hanging out on the beach - no make up and hair more than a tad windswept. Both shots were face shots only.

I asked two questions of the guys:

A. Which pic do you like best?

B. How old would you say I am by both pics?

Every single guy said they liked the beach pic best.

Slightly more worryingly.... they put my age at between 16-18 in that pic. LMAO. Pedophiles! All my friends are pedophiles!! LMAO.

Make up, judiciously applied, tends to make most women look sexier.

You can deny that makeup effects you if you choose, and it may even be true FOR YOU, but thousands of years of women wearing makeup to help them snag that man, refutes your protests.

Yep... It even isn't illogical to consider tattoed makeup... That is my newest consideration. To do or not to do... :confused:
