    1. I think people should try to look presentable but not try too hard on facial makeup or any other kind because sometimes people won’t judge you on looks but personality .

    2. No.

    3. ???

      I think people should stay the way they are because if people use makeup it will ruin their face

    I agree with Tamanna because you should not judge yourself in any way because that will make you think you don’t look beautiful and then all your thoughts will be a negative perspective. You should always believe in yourself and you should always love the way you are.

      Good point.
      Does everybody think make-up affects how beauty looks?

        I think makeup does affect how beauty looks, it may look nice, but beauty lies what’s underneath it not whats on top of it.

          Tamanna,
          Good point.

          Why do we think so many people spend so much time on make up?

    No I believe inner beauty counts the most. Makeup is just used highlight the body’s features. I agree with Halimah, you should always love who you are and makeup doesn’t show that, it just masks the inner you!

      I agree with Taybah, your body is precious, its a gift from God, say if i borrow a doll from a friend, it was perfect at first but when i returned it it was all ripped apart with hideous marks all over it.. the friend i borrowed it from wouldnt be pleased would they.. same with out body when we put make up on, it starts to ruin us and hide what we were once before, God made us perfect at first, we wouldnt want to return looking ruined and with marks all over what we were when we were first born.. we should come back looking as good as we were before we put make up on ourselves.

      God made us beautiful and warned us and we dont listen? God expects you to look presentable so we should be proud of what we are.. Do you have a problem with someones skin colour? Then you have a problem with God.. do t ruin yourself people c;

        Adiba,

        You make a compelling statement.

        I’m interesting to know if others agree with you or have a different viewpoint.

    1. Beauty doesn’t matter in life, what matters is being a good person and having a good personality.

    2.It means nothing but they’re probably trying to give you a compliment. You should believe them because their statement cannot be proved right or wrong. You therefore might as well assume it is meant in a nice way because if it isn’t then screw that person – you don’t need negative people in your life.

    3. Not really because men and women are completely different people their beauty is different for example women use makeup while men use clothing style.

    what’s on top of it(on top of the face, which would be makeup):

    what’s underneath it:

    some people may hear makeup bc they might feel like people are judging their appearance???

    I think that beauty is something you should not cover because you are beautiful just the way you are and you don’t need to change just because of a problem or something related to you. It’s okay if you like makeup, but the real person is underneath it. and people look beautiful without makeup anyway
