    I never understood why women wear it since it hides their beauty. Many women I asked said because it makes them look pretty but it doesn't.

    Whenever I see women with makeup and nail polish; I honestly get confused(deer in the headlights) by who/what I am looking at. It's like I'm looking at a doll and have an aversion to them.

    Whenever I see women without make up and nail polish; my subconscious primal urges kick in and I'm naturally sociable.

    Any ideas why women wear makeup when it's counteractive?

    Is it possible that women wear make up for the way it makes them feel and not the way it makes you feel?

    I honestly feel like it's the advertising that gets into their heads saying that it will make them look beautiful. I hate make up. The only time I ever wear it is for halloween or when I'm dressing up as a clown ( I do actually do this, it's not a stab to make people upset )

    I used to work with a female who would come in in the mornings with baggy eyes, often hungover and within a few moments transform herself into clear eyed, perky female with tighter looking skin than she came in with. To her, it was to make herself presentable (it was a public job).

    Generally though, I think makeup is worn for the purpose of attraction through a kind of deception, however slight.

    Life holds a multitude of mysteries for me that I know will never be resolved. On the theme of this thread why plunging necklines and exposures of thighs? Why high heeled shoes? Why huge dangly suspensions from ears?

    On a different theme a great mystery is why the apparently obligatory sex scenes on film and TV? I either avoid such programmes altogether or look away when a relatively minor “juicy” bit occurs.
    A rare piece of wisdom expressed in a Yorkshire pub: Sex should be a private thing between two people. It should not be treated as a spectator sport.
