Oh yes, if make up can transform women like that, then a little transformation on men could only help matters. The make up seems to move the cheek highlights up a bit, cover up any marks like freckles, make the eyes sparkle and, generally speaking, take a number of years off women. Why shouldn't men take a few years off so women appreciate them a bit more too?
why are all of you so interested in making yourselves into what you are not?
makeup is a lie. Sometimes very pretty, and I have no objection to using it on occasion, but seriously, to suggest that it's somehow wrong for a woman not to use it is just plain crazy.
Don't they though!
And women? Before you answer that, let me clarify why I think men improve with age - it's because they become a little more subdued (testosterone relaxes a bit), have read a few books, and have discovered conversation topics outside of the field of sports - even learned some manners to go along with that sense of humour. Women ... improve with age too - and I'm sure someone can say why.
<snipped for no particular reason except>
It all depends on what kind of person the woman is. If she is interested in developing herself as a personality, she will improve. If she is comfortable just with living quietly under her husband's protection, she will not. I have seen both instances.
The reason made up women appeal to men goes back to basic instincts. Clear bright skin, bright shiny eyes mean healthy. A man is subconciously taking this all in. Women pick men who are rugged and virile looking. It has to do with reproducing the strongest possible offspring.
We may think we choose using our intellect but we'd be fooling ourselves. Instinct and self preservation are too strong.,
make-up is a very useful thing, in the sense that it simplifies impressing your image of yourself onto others. After all, our appearance is the first thing about us that people see and evaluate, so it has to be up to the standards of a certain social situation you are in, and it has to be up to the standards of the people you want/need to impress. Make-up is a very useful tool in this case. Helps you to create the image you need.
I love my freckles, and I refuse to try to fill in and pretend my laugh lines don't exist.
