#55/108 on True Love list? She’ll go easy on the make up.

You’re more attractive than your make up.

We want to kiss our loved one—not chemicals.

Saw this great feature on NY Daily News.

Who’s to say you need make up? Sure, these are stars—but stars are the ones who wear the most make up, so if they’re looking good without, that’s gotta tell us something.

So go au naturel (on your face, at least), or wear a bit less—and maybe you’ll be even more kissable! “Flaws” are okay—in fact, they’re you—and you is who your loved one wants to smooch.

A little makeup can be nice, special, fun—just go easy, and go truly organic (the skin is sensitive, absorbent stuff, and unlike food—where your body is set up to process out most toxins—our skin can’t filter out nasty chemicals. And nasty chemicals have been shown to be related to the dramatic increase in cancer over the last 75 years).

Bonus: via Reddit, “Porn Stars without Make Up.” Best comment: “As a man, I’m beginning to think wearing make up will get me more chicks.”

    I look at the mountains and they are beautiful. I look at the ocean and it is beautiful. I look at the ocean and it is beautiful. I look at a woman and she is beautiful. Makeup is beautiful – it's own right and in it's own way – it is painting the canvas, gilding the lily, making what is into something else. Let's call it what it is. Meaningless. It is fashion. And it changes from generation to generation, even year to year – else what would keep Maybelline in business. It is not worth talking about. My husband likes what he calls "the porn star look" when we go to bed" – so be it. I put on eye shadow and thick lipstick and eyelashes. Who cares but he and I? It's all play. There is absolutely nothing between a 5-year-old girl putting on make up and a 50 year old woman. It's using the body and the face as a coloring book to evoke images and – yes, even feelings (as in my husband's case). It has nothing to do with how we feel about our "real" selves unless we make it into that. In fact, coming from a woman who has been through at least a dozen entirely different makes up changes over her lifetime, it has nothin' to do with nothin' – it's just what it says it is — make up.
