What I’m saying is not germane to the topic, but sort of. Okay, not really.
In the 1980s I got my esthetician license and bought all sorts of skin-care machines from Germany (Deutsche-Nemectron). I spent a bundle. I got rid of the whole fraudulent lot after I determined that all these machines did virtually nothing. However, because of having a license, I received all sorts of beauty magazines.
The “before and after” photos of women is the subject here. The women without make-up and “hair jobs” … and then the “after” with the “do” and make-up. In EVERY case, the women without make-up looked more attractive than the Halloween version. For me, make-up is mostly scary. I would wager than most men find “natural women” more attractive.
Women are gorgeous … and “they don’t need NUTTIN’!” So far, in my very long life, I have never heard a guy say, “Oh I really love that girl because she has terrific eyelashes!” (And, yes, I know you all do this for yourselves … and that’s perfectly fine. Just saying.)
