Which Is Better Heavy Or Light Make-up?

i think when one makes her make-up light she looks prettier than when the make- up is heavy cos most pretty ladies i have seen they just wear make-up lightly &they look even prettier.but those onheavy make up even look worse than being without make-up.

this is my own view

what`s yours

i think it depends on the occasion, in the day time, its nice to have a fresh look , hence natural makeup is a nice option but on special occassions, parties or weddings one can highlight facial features such as dramatic eyes. The problem with a lot of nigerian women is that they just dont know how to wear makeup. There is a difference between looking like a masquarade and looking glamourous. you can still wear heavy makeup and not look like a clown, u just have to have the right techniques and have a good sense of style,, if u watch emericas next top model and look at tyra banks make up, it can vary between heavy makeup and the light simple look but notice that it looks good, im sick of all those raz makeup that some ppl do with thick lip liners, odd lipsticks, too much blush and bad eye shadow and eyeliner application. Of course u will look like a masquarade if you dont know how to wear make up properly, what do u expect!

u know my BM asked yesterday why i'm not wearing make-up, and actually i make up, but i really like looking natural b/casue people admire my innocent look. light make up is good for dark skin, a light eye pen and glocy lipstik will match any outfit.

Ok we all know that light make up is the best. Even if u've got blemishes, concealer can always do that. the only reason people use heavy make up is because they're tryna cover summin up. like dark spots, birth mark etc but for things like that , just go to the aid of concealer. it'd be like itz not even there, and then u can apply ur light make up. I've got dark spots ( a bit) and thats what i use. concealer. it doesn't make me any uglier when i wash off my makeup. 1 thing i hate is when u c this really gorgeous girl out there, without make up. she starts to think shez on top of the world. one of ma gurls once said to me ' i aint never c u without make up when going out' and when she came to ma house, she was like ' u're wearing make up in the house?' and am like 'no' cuz i aint wearing any. My point is, not everyone loves wearing make up, we just got diff reasons y we wear them. Oh and please, noone can tell me they've never worn make up since they were born, cuz trust me, even lip gloss is make up. It make u look pretty and u weren't born with it. definition of make up if u ask me. so please shall we not rub it in people's face that they wear heavy make up?

I love make-up! It has to be light though. . .we have all seen ladies that look like clowns with the amount of make-up they have on, and it's not cute. Even some of these Nollywood stars are guilty, and you know who they are lol.

[color=#990000][/color]I think your make up should suit where you are going. light make up for work, you can add some spice to it if you are going for a party like match your eyeshadow to your top, head gear or something, and the heavier make up can come at night for clubbing and other events.

if ur gonna wear foundation or powder, do it to make it look natural. Light makeup looks more subtle and the colour wont look wierd especially with black skin.

If u feel too Unclad then u can always dramatise with eye make up.
