There have been numerous discussions as to why women apply makeup. A lot of men think that women apply makeup to impress them, but here’s a newsflash: They really don’t! Many people might even think that women apply makeup because they’re not confident enough to face the world. That’s not quite a fair assumption to make either. Maybe she’s just anxious to face the world with an acne-ridden face and uses makeup to boost her confidence so that she can go out there and enjoy herself without any other concerns. And this only happens because a lot of people have this annoying habit of coming up to you and pointing out the acne on your face or your puffy eyes. Believe it or not, she already knows when you’re pointing out the obvious and you’re not really helping by doing so.

Ladies, we’d only like to say this to you! Apply makeup whenever you want, wherever you want and do not let the world be a judge to any of it.

For many women, makeup is a confidence booster. Many of you might not be used to leaving the house without putting on any makeup. In fact, there are many women who don’t want anyone to even see them until they have put on some makeup. This could be termed as a bit of an extreme obsession though. While a lot of women do accept that makeup helps them feel more confident, even minimal makeup is good enough for many others. Hence, the amount of makeup required to boost confidence varies greatly from woman to woman.

Makeup cannot really change the absolute appearance of your face or transform you into some other person completely. It can only perhaps be used for enhancing your features at the most. If you have dreamy eyes, you can make them appear even more beautiful by focusing most of your makeup on just your eyes.

Makeup is a form of art and just like many other such forms, it is also a lot of fun. You can try out different looks using makeup, transform yourself into a completely new person or even just look pretty much different from the previous day. With patience and practice, you can easily learn this art and if something does go wrong in the process, you always have the option to just wash the makeup off of your face and start again.
