Make-up or natural look? The debate continues

Lotions and beauty products play important roles for ladies trying to enhance their beauty. Eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and powder are all things that many women never forget to throw into their purses.

“It is my habit to wear make-up,” said Leng Sakana, 23.

“When I go out, I always wear make-up or apply lotion because it can lift my beauty and make me look more beautiful.”

She added that in this modern day, beautifying oneself is simply being done to look prettier.

“It is normal for every lady to have make-up when they hang out or go to work, but it is not necessarily heavy make-up.”

She believed that adorning herself with make-up helps her gain confidence and admiration from others when she goes out. For Sakana, beautifying includes lotion and cream in addition to make-up. With lotion, she obtains the three S’s: softness, smoothness, and good smell.

Despite some girls’ obsession with make-up, some men say they prefer the natural look.

“I do not really like it,” said Mean, 24, a man who loves natural beauty.

“I think nothing is better than looking natural. If I kiss, I would kiss a girl without make-up or lotion.”

He added that make-up, lotion and facial cream seem to cover the real skin, so he does not like them.

Cream, make-up, and lotion become the ladies’ friends when they help improve their beauty. It can help improve their confidence and attractiveness, and many men like it. However, for some men and women, the natural look is still best.
