  • Well it depends. It could be a really ugly person, or a pretty person wearing the makeup. It could be a person that wears so damn much makeup that he/she looks like a clown, like on The Drew Carey Show. Some people wear makeup to express who they are, like goths & emos.
  • "think makeup"? never heard of that
  • I looked about the same with or without it, except I got approached by rather scary men sometimes if I wore it. So I go without it now.
  • No, I think a little to enhance what you have is good. Plus, I think if you look nice when you go out, people generally treat you better.
  • I personally don't wear it, I think I would look stupid with make up on. It does suit some people though, if they know how to apply it. I think the trick is to keep it subtle. You don't want to end up looking like an air hostess or one of those women that work in 'Boots'.
  • It depends on what you are trying to achieve. Make-up does make a difference to ones appearance and if that is what you are after, it is not a waste of time. I think its a bad idea to wear make-up more often than not wearing make-up.
  • I think it's your decision if you want to wear it and you dont mind spending the time then no but if you dont then yes
  • No.I rather enjoy wearing makeup.It's part of my femininity.Worn correctly,it can enhance a woman's features.
  • No, if I didn't wear makeup, people would mistake me for Don Knotts! Really, though, there are good qualities and bad for me. At times I wish it didn't take so long and then I don't wear it. However, if I need to go to work or spruce up I'm glad it's there. Dependant on what you wish to obtain, it's really up to the wearer themselves whether or not it's a waste of time.
  • it depends.. some times it's quite fun, but in the mornings i'd rather use my time sleeping. Usally wake up 3-5 minuts before i have to leave for school, so don't have much time. But i think make up for some people, even though they lock beautiful without, feel better about them self while wearing make up. people with low selfestem have a tendence to get a bit more outgoing and feel a little bit better about them self.
  • It is on my wife -- she doesn't understand that you can't improve on perfection.
  • It depends on the day. If I'm going to spend the majority of the day laying on the couch watching tv, it would be a waste of my time. I'm perfectly comfortable with myself in my pajamas all day. If I were actually going out in public or trying to make a good impression I would want to wear makeup as a way to show good hygiene and effort.
  • If a slick of lipstick and some mascara makes you feel a bit better about yourself then I would argue its time well spent. Its also nice to put on a bit of glitz for a special occasion. Getting done up for a night out can sometimes be as much fun as the night out itself- and there's nothing wrong with that. A lot of people think trainspotting or fishing are a waste of time too - but if someone enjoys it, who are we to judge? Although if you're spending hours in the mirror trying to perfect your foundation, too scared to go out and wash your car without a full face of cosmetics, then you have a bit of a problem.
  • Personlly, I like wearing make-up so I don't think of it as a waste of time. I wouldn't dream of going on a night out without any on and I would hate to go to work without make-up on, it would make me feel like I'd forgotten to put my pants on.
  • i think its not a waste of time,but im not one of these people who cant leave the house without it. i like to put it on if im going out anywhere for a meal etc or at work but if i was just going shopping or nowhere special id be happy to not wear it
  • Yes. Confidence is a person's best makeup. I don't wear makeup, unless you count clear lip gloss.
  • Only if it does not accomplish what you want it to for your own purposes.
  • I use make up to enhance my beauty; so I definately don't see it as a waste of time, I benefit from it. If I'm just popping to the shops or picking something up, that's when I consider make up to be a waste of time, though. Also, if I have to spend more than 5 mins applying make up, I'd definately consider it a waste of time!
  • No, It makes you beautiful and more self confident about your self!
  • That depends entirely on what you are trying to achieve with it.
  • I rarely wear it in my personal life, professionaly I might spend up to an hour in the makeup chair on a performance night. If they're 'aging' me it might take longer. Its pretty amazing what those makeup artists can do!
  • Not if someone genuinely enjoys buying it, putting it on, experimenting with it, etc. I love trying new blush and eyeshadow colors.
  • I think it depends. I personally wear makeup as naturally as I can, but still enough. I work in a highly professional environment (dressy business) and it 'completes' the look. If I'm going out at night/weekends then I'd put on a bit more. But hey, on Saturdays laying around the house half the day? Not much. :)
  • i think you should do whatever you want and feel comfortable with, if it makes you happy you're not wasting time
  • absolutley not. It makes me feel pretty (despite wheather or not you think agree or not) and I think it makes us women look prettier as well as FEEL pretty
  • No, I think make up can be very enchanting. Not necessary, but sometimes very appreciated. I feel like a cad for saying it, but I think thin black outlines around a woman's eye's can be very.....
  • Yeah, kinda. People look better without chemicals all over their face.
  • no i think make up is a little fun, it can make you feel like you are hiding the way you feel and also make you feel like a princess, my partner hides my make up he doesnt like it unless we are going out somewhere fancy, but i love it and hate to leave the house without it
  • Make-up is a waste of time, i know i really dont like girls that look fake, at my school all of the less wealthy and worse looking girls wear a ton of make-up and it just makes them look worse than they already are. but there are great girls that dont wear much if any makeup and i prefer them because it looks better and less fake
  • suck up
  • I like the natural look, however a little make-up is o.k.
  • No,It make's you beautiful.
  • Not if the person wearing it enjoys it.
  • The right make-up on a woman is beautiful. It shows she cares about her appearance and she can walk with confidence knowing she looks her best. It also attracts the opposite sex which is also her goal. If the guy didn't like make-up, he wouldn't be attracted.
  • Yes and no. It is if you're making a late night run to pick up a gallon of milk. The rest of the time no. I won't leave the house without it and I enjoy experimenting with different looks.
  • Absolutley not, I love putting make up on just because it makes me feel feminine. Also I don't think I could go anywhere with out it!
  • yes and no. i think a woman should wear it (lightly) whenever the occasion calls for it.i think woman shouldnt worry as much as they do about their looks unless the situation calls for it like church,work,anything that your appearance will be looked upon.but as far as just being at home or going to the store,then i say no,let your natural beauty shine.
  • No, It makes me feel pretty and feminine.
  • Hell no and I think some people should wear more of it then they do. But on the other hand some people need to tone it down also. Sorry
  • Only the very young ,very beautiful or very conceited think they do not need any help at all
  • I think so. I don't see the point of it...
  • funny. I also was going to say absolutely not. Some of us NEED it, and some of you would be glad we wear it if you saw us w/out it. I won't open the door w /out it.
  • Aye Some people Including Some Men need make-up.. So no its not a waste of time...Though some can be charged with abusing make-up by using way to much...Nobody wants to hug a person with an overload on there face. Just so I can get all over our clothes
  • Some women really know how to transform themselves into the most extraordinary beauties with makeup, and I sure love the results they get. So, NO it's not a waste of time. The only negative comment I have is the smell of heavy makeup can be over powering, but 9 times out of 10 it's an old lady who is reeking of it. This is from my experiences and observations here in Tokyo.
  • not if it makes the one wearing it feel better
  • Yes and money...i only wear it when we have our yearly family Christmas picture taken
  • my husband would say yes but at times i like to wear it, for fun.
  • yes. i know some women enjoy it and some need it to feel better about themselves, and i completely respect them for that, but for me its just a waste of time, money, effort and i havent devloped whatever gene makes you good at putting makeup on without looking like a clown!!
  • Make-up Rocks! It lets me know who to approch, how their feeling(mood), it lets me know style, intrests and personallity. So no its not a waste of time, it makes finding women on the same page as me easier.
  • Absolutely not. I feel prettier when I wear make up. I feel more prepared for my day because having my hair done and make up give me confidence.
  • I think it depends on what you look like and too much of a good thing could be bad. dont give clowns competition.
  • I don't think it's a waste of time if the woman is not comfortable without it... I would rather not spend time applying makeup myself, unless I'm going out somewhere special.
  • I depends on the woman. I don't wear any make up but maybe some day I will.
  • Some women need it.
  • It is not needed for me to feel better about her, but if she needs it to feel better then I am ok with it. She is pretty enough for me as it is.
  • I believe that it is a complete waste of time.I am a male and women that wear make-up a afraid of thier looks.I usually date women that wear no make-up at all,and they are radiently beautiful.I understand that guano is used in make-up.Guano is another name for bat shit.Look it up and you will find out it is true,and not a made up story by myself.I have heard about guano from at least ten different people i my life.I am not sure I am spelling it right though.Men don't wear make-up why should societ expect that of women.I quess the cosmetic companies with thier billions are happy.
  • I think it depends on when you put it on honestly. For school waking up early just to put make up on is a waste of time. Its just school who cares. But if your going out with friends, or to a party, then no because it might allow you to have more fun because you'll feel self confident and wont have to worry about looking bad.
  • yes, I think you should just go as what you look like, In my opinion, people are beautiful just the way they look, although some people truly are ugly no matter what they do...
  • If applied correctly it can look very nice, but most people go overboard with it and would be better looking without it. I personally don't bother wearing make-up ever. I don't own any at all.
  • yes but only when im late for class.
  • wel no, but to guys probley, i reall ydont think they give a flyen fuck, but i think they would if they seen what our celeberties would look like without make-up!
  • I don't think it's a waste of time. I think everyone has natural beauty in them, but I know I feel so much better about myself when I have some make up on. I feel more feminine I guess.
  • yes. i have never had the patience to spend 30 minutes in front of the mirror.
  • Heck no! I could't live without my make-up! I'm very girlie-I love to do friends/co-workers hair and make-up, and so on!
  • It is hard for females to feel beautiful these days with all of the celebrities flaunting their flawless bodies, flawless skin, etc. I definitely do not think that makeup is a waste of time. Anything that is going to make you feel beatiful or better about yourself is definitely a positive if you ask me. If you do not like makeup, do not wear it. It is a decision that a woman needs to make for herself.
  • Hey man sumtimes it will boost a girls confidence. jus don't look like a freakin circus clown....lol its like skin a guy why do u wear cologne.
  • On a daily basis? Yes. But I do think that make-up is worth it when there is a special occasion. When you want to dress up and add a little color to your already natural, beautiful face.
  • Yes. Well, unless you're going to be on camera in a television studio, and then you need makeup or you'll look like a pale green glowstick (if you're light-skinned) or moldy roast beef (if you're dark-skinned).
  • It helps my self confidence. I know I look good either way, but it makes me feel better about myself. I also have horrid self-esteem.. so it's good to practice doing things to myself that make me feel good about myself.
  • No, I don't think so. I generally don't wear much of make-up but I enjoy wearing lipstick. It brightens my face, makes me feel good and brightens even the most dullest of my days. Makes me feel feminine and I love that feeling it gives me
  • I definitely feel that makeup is a waste of time! You are who you are be natural--also makeups have a tendency of causing other skin problems over a period of time-
  • i dont think so, Because i use it. I used to think so. All my friends tell me i look the same, but once you use it 1 time.. your hooked, You think it makes you look better. And u usually look the same But have you noticed on shows like what not to wear, People who need alot of help even after their hair is cut and then the make-up helps, The person they marry is going to get a very very big suprise. No?
  • this is from a womans perspective. Makeup is a waste of time if you do not have enough time to put it on. But if you have all of the time in the world you know, maybe a few swabs of foundation a little bit of lipstick etc. you know what I mean
  • i sure do....i love it when the face is fresh with a good soak in cold water
  • If a person is comfortable with the look it brings about and they want to enhance their natural features, I don't then think it is a waster of their time to use it.
  • I think that if a person enjoys applying it and likes to enhance their beauty, then it is not a waste of time.
  • Yes... Because we must learn to appreciate, not to change what we already have. My opinion is, make-up is wasting..
  • ABSOLUTELY NOT!
  • no way. maybe if all women made an agreement to stop wearing it.
  • no, its whatever your personal preference is... unless you wear it like really thick and it looks like halloween makeup
  • It's not a waste of time if it makes the person feel good about themselves. That said, a lot of the way some people do their makeup could be considered a waste of time...
  • No. Absolutely not. I believe everyone woman and some men need a little makeup. A woman looks 'dead' without it. It can boost your self-esteem, give you a little pick-me-up and conceal those nasty flaws. It's like magic.
  • No way make-up is great ! I think some people can over do it but a little bit can make a big difference
  • I think some people NEED makeup.. Personally I try not to go anywhere without my face on..
  • Yes, especially when the person who is using the make-up looks like she applied it using a paint gun.
  • Some people look good with make-up, and some do not. So it is sort of a waste of time.
  • Anything that makes you feel better about yourself is worth the time
  • Of course not, how could I live without my mascara! :P
  • it doesn't take that much time to put on make up and it's worth it if you look and feel better, especially if you have a professional image and your make up adds to that
  • As a guy, yes with exception. I don't use it myself ( unless you consider a camo stick make-up) and prefer women to show-off their natural beauty, not something artificial. The exceptions are if it makes a women feel good to wear it (then she can dress up as Mickey Mouse if she likes), or if it's being used to cut glare for the camera (film, TV). Otherwise it's a waste of time and money (in my opinion).
  • I think make up is gay. Some girls are naturally gorgeous...and then they go and kill it with make-up. uhhhhh its annoying. Girls please if your already hot....no make-up!
  • No. Some people need filler for the cracks in thier face.
  • for the most part it is. A little bit here and there for certain occasions is fine, but normally woman should leave it alone and let their natural beauty rule the day.
  • I think it is a waste of time and money
  • I dont wear any make-up! I want a guy to like me the way I really am. I dont want to look good because some cosmetic industry have done a good job. I think for a girl to be naturally beautiful is the thing a guy likes the most!
  • Not at all.
  • Honesty, I think it's a waste of time for me. I have a very smooth complexion, very few blemishes (but that's because I'm still a teenager) and naturally nice hair and nails. I don't think I wear makeup, nail polish or any cosmetics. Personally, I think women are most beautiful when they are natural. But, my boyfriend thinks that makeup is important for all women. I still get a bit frustrated with him when he lectures me about makeup. He thinks makeup is apart of growing up and that all women should wear it. Sure, jobs can tell you how to look or else you can get fired but when I'm on my own time, It's my own business.
  • No way, I feel uncomfortable without it.. It's just nicer to know that when someone looks at you face, all(or most) of your flaws are covered up. It makes me more confident
  • I most certainly do not. It enhances and...erm...hides - completely necessary when you operate on three hours of sleep on weekends.
  • I think it makes a woman more attractive
