 **Ok I seem to have offended or upset some people.

Please note I have never said "I don't need make up to keep a man" I do wear make-up for special occasion.

I don't think women who wear make-up are insecure and or jealous.

I am not trying to discourage anyone from wearing makeup

I am not saying yourDH/SO doesn't love you if he likes you in makeup

 I am not hating on anyone for wear make-up.

I know there are many men that like for their woman to wear make and the is great. Do what makes you and you man happy.

However for a woman who does enjoy wearing make-up to tell a woman that doesn't wear make-up that her man will cheat or leave her if she doesn't wear makeup is wrong and that was my point. That is what the other post said.

IT equated not wearing make-up to being a slob and that is what I don't agree with. If this post offended you I am sorry.

Now you can continue to the post:

seriously...make-up does not always equal attractive. and not wearing make-up doesn't make you a slob...I mean really

Can it help if it is done right? yup

Does everyone know how to do it  right? nope

I don't wear make-up on a regular basis. I don't feel I need to. I have decent skin. I don't feel like I need to add anything to my face on a regular basis. But I certainly take care of myself.

When we are going out or having people over yes I put on black mascara, black eyeliner and lip gloss, usually clear.

I just think it is weird that some women feel like make-up is such a necessity to keep a man...

**I have nothing against ladies that do wear make-up. It is fine to wear make-up and I am sure you husband thinks you are beautiful with or without it. But I don't think it is a true statement that if a married woman doesn't wear make-up her husband will chear, or find her less attractive.

Not taking care of youself and not wearing make-up are two very different things.

I have very sensitive skin. I am actually very allergic to clinique makeup. So I will usually only do mascara. I have had compliments on how healthy my skin is.

I don't wear make up and DH prefers me without it. I only wear it for special occasions and that is the minimal amount possible. I hate the way it feels, it makes me break out and DH won't snuggle close to me because it gets on him and he hates it.

My skin is so much healthier since I stopped.

 They are just insecure. I only wear make up when we go out or when I have to get dressed up.

My DH tells me he likes me better without makeup, he says it is more natural.
