While those before makeup pictures are quite terrifying..
I wonder if they would look better if they never wore makeup?
Make up has its place. It can correct (hide) an issue such as roseacea or birthmarks. My cousin was born with a strawberry birthmark on her face
and had years of treatments to have it removed. With makeup, you can't see it anymore. That does tremendous things to a person's confidence and self
esteem and I refuse to vilify makeup for doing that.
The only convincing pro-makeup argument I thought I'd never hear. A very good point made cheddar!
As for hair coloring, I find myself very attracted to girls with extravagant colors in their hair.
On the flip side, it absolutely disgusts me when I see blonde with dark roots.
My favorite line at the bar is "You have such beautiful blonde hair, why do you die your roots dark?" They don't know if they should laugh or slap me.
Graying hair isn't something I really notice in women. Probably because most of them are dyeing.
Hair loss is a problem. Is it innate to the human species or is it an effect of modern technology/fluoride/radiation exposure/who knows what else? I
know the only thing about myself that I feel truly self conscious about is my receding hairline & it's not even that bad yet, I've known guys with way
worse, sometimes they shave their heads sometimes they don't. Plugs & hair growth treatments are expensive, but if I could afford it I'd probably do
something about it.
As for physicality & things like dad bod shaming, I personally feel much better about myself & am generally happier when I'm more in shape than not.
Again, modern society & our slavery to money promotes white collar work & sedentary lifestyles. Your body can be changed naturally with excercise, &
for the better. Maybe we should be shaking dad bod culture & what it represents. You can't naturally
change being ugly, & with your earlier
quoted argument in mind, makeup has been corrupted & continued to empower judgment rather than acceptance.
