1. Women Wear Makeup to Impress Men

There are a ton of reasons I wear makeup but those reasons do not include men. This is a common misconception when it comes to makeup and I know that I personally have been asked many times; "Who are you trying to impress?"... "Men don't like women who wear a lot of makeup"... "You don't have to wear makeup to impress me." I can remember one particular time a guy said the last one to me and I replied with "Well good news, I didn't wear it to impress you." I wear makeup because it's fun, it makes me feel good and I like how it enhances my features.

2. People Who Wear Makeup are Insecure

Even the most confident women in the world wear makeup! In fact, for many women, applying makeup can serve as a huge confidence booster. Makeup serves as an enhancement to things you like about yourself. It can play up your beautiful eyes or draw attention to your luscious lips. Most women who wear makeup know they are beautiful without it: they just choose to wear makeup because it’s really fun, they’re good at it, it accentuates the things they like about themselves or they simply like it.

3. Women Wear Makeup are Being Fake or Lying

It's not my fault you think my eyebrows are naturally filled, shaped and flawless all the time. It's not my fault you think my lips are naturally hot pink. And it's definitely not my fault if you think that my eyelids are naturally adorned with gold glitter. Everyone has their preference on just how much makeup they put on, but for the most part, those doing it well, you'd hardly notice. You would simply notice the beautiful features she has.

4. Wearing Makeup Is Bad For Your Skin

Okay, this one can be true. The key is in choosing makeup that is healthy for your skin. The secret that not all women know yet is that there are cosmetics that will even improve, heal and moisturize your skin. Quality makeup is important! Fortunately, it is available and also affordable.

5. Makeup Application Takes Too Much Time

Enhancing your features and looking put together can take as little as 5 minutes. To accentuate your beauty and look put together, all you need to do is the following 4 things:

  1. Fill in your eyebrows
  2. Apply Mascara or eye liner
  3. Put on some blush
  4. Put on some lipstick (or LipSense if you don't want to be bothered with reapplying throughout the day)
