There is a somewhat outdated notion that still persists in modern society and drives me crazy: that makeup — specifically, women wearing it — is for the benefit of men. Somehow, even though we’re living in the year 2017, men still labor under the misguided belief that we wear our makeup for them, and that they are therefore justified in any criticism of said makeup.
Unfortunately for their sweet little selves, this is no longer the case.
Makeup has become a form of self-expression, and is truly an art unto itself. People watch online beauty tutorials purely for entertainment, since they’re so completely mesmerizing. Women (and men!) now wear makeup as a testament to their own makeup application skills, and not as an attempt to look “natural” or necessarily appeal to the opposite sex.
Despite all this, people (read: guys) still feel the need to pipe up where women’s makeup is concerned.
Women recently took to Whisper to share to most nauseating and infuriating comments men have ever made about their cosmetic choices — and the results may very well give you the insatiable urge to slap your computer screen.
