How do you respond when someone says that makeup perpetuates the idea that people need to look prettier? Or that makeup makes people feel ugly or degrades them?
I try to liken it to wearing clothes that fit, choosing flattering hairstyles, clothes, and the like. Makeup is also more than purely about looking prettier for many; it can be an art form as well as a form of self-expression.
