I may be a lot off topic with this post, boats and all.
See, for me, beauty IS power. It is feminine power. Masculine power has a different form, but in both cases, it is power that people are attracted to. Think of the power of fire and the power of water. Water has a long term type of effect- the Grand Canyon was carved out of rock by water! Fire has short term effect, it's influence is quickly observed and evident. Water seeks balance.... always seeking an equal level, a merging oneness. Fire seeks a contrast, between light and darkness- the flame and the black carbonized materials it has touched. The beauty of the changing colors in the ocean, or the reflective quality of bodies of water, may seem diffused and gentle, but their movements can still have a profound effect upon land, and life forms. Tides and tidal waves can be formidable forces. They are still necessary for life to exist and survive. If you look at emotions like aggressivity, and explosive force, they have a power that is like fire. (masculine) Emotions like love, grace, forgiveness, they have a power like water. (feminine) It is a mistake to under estimate the less obvious, yet just as strong, power of water- don't forget, water can put out a fire too.
I was defending women who have difficulty perceiving their inner power without some sort of physical/material aid. I don't need to be one of them to understand and defend them. I have already answered all these questions indepth.
There is power in subtility, in love, in compassion, in grace, in balance, in equality, in understanding, in empathy, in integration. Those are the feminine force that can be just as persuasive and influencial in the world as all the conflict, opposition, hostility and aggressivity. If it weren't so.... we would so many men be afraid of it ?

All you keep saying is that makeup makes you feel more powerful.
When I ask how is makeup making you fell more powerful? You just keep saying the same things over and over and that in now way has to do with guys. I mean face it, your just making stuff up because you did not have a real answer.
She may be quite aware that there is so much more importance to a person than appearance- but those who feel jealous and low in her presence start from there, as if it is of vital importance. It seems to be a key to all other successes, and they will create their reality- if they feel unattractive, then their confidence and courage in other endeavors is weak.
Try to find ways to help those women gain some confidence in their appearance, so that they can move beyond it and into other explorations of their capabilities.
with the intent to look into the mirror and see beauty, to feel an exterior manifestation of her internal beauty? To feel that the balanced, loving, colorful, open, luminous, sensual, joyful emotions within her are exteriorized, for her own experience? To be able to move within a vehicle that is letting all those positive emotions come to life
Sometimes make up aids a women to let go of all those internal positive feelings, and those enable her to feel more powerful.... power is the sensation of your inner qualities and emotions flowing freely from the source within, and outwards through your body. Once you get that flowing, then you might not need makeup so much anymore.
The woman who suddenly feels more beautiful will have a different way of behaving then, and make different choices.
I have yet to see any prof of this magical traited femininity you seem to claim that you and all females posses.
Is it the monarch programing, or is it simply the princess syndrome, does anybody even know anymore? Ah people and there unconscious habits
