The makeup and skincare industry have always been prepared exclusively for women. It is curious for many of us to consider why so many women feel the overwhelming need and compulsion to alter their appearances. There are many reasons women want to wear makeup and here are the top 10 reasons why.


10)  Media Influence
No one can deny that there is an increase in realty and make over shows, in addition to media coverage, that is exposing women to more beauty products today than ever before. The markets involved in buying and selling beauty products are worth billions of US dollars. Even children under 10 years of age are tuning into shows that are geared to provide information about makeup, no wonder they want to emulate this behavior. It is difficult to say what the exact age is when girls begin to use beauty products but studies have found that the age has dropped.

Those who are curious to know why women want to wear makeup should note that makeup is not a recent invention. The history of wearing makeup goes back centuries, making the love affair between women and makeup as old as history. It has been found that women have been putting on makeup in some form since ancient times in various types of powders, paints and other elements, both natural as well as artificial to enhance their beauty.

For example, the ancient Egyptian women used to wear eye paint and ancient women in Greece used red iron to beautify their lips. Japanese women adorned their faces with powder made from rice and the European women wore powders made from chalk on their faces. It is no surprise to us that modern day women are also fascinated with the practice that dates back in history. The use of cosmetics has changed over the centuries with the main difference being the concealment options of todayís makeup.

8)  Cover Something Up
It's just a nature in women to appear as alluring as possible at all times, even in front of their husbands. They sometimes feel insecure and unattractive when they have dark circles under their eyes or marks that show up easily after a night of little sleep. Naturally, these spots will probably disappear once they arenít so tired but they apply specific makeup to hide them right away. Women also use makeup to lighten their face and camouflage other spots, like pimples, some scars and uneven coloring.

7)  Social Acceptance
Every single individual deserves to feel good about their body and appearance. But the sad fact, particularly for women, is that they are often judged by their outward appearance. Developing self esteem by accepting and loving oneís own body as well as appearance is crucial to feel happy about yourself. A great personality can outweigh a pretty face and everyone is beautiful in some way. However, increased peer pressure and concerns with what prospective romantic partners may think of them can make women, especially teens, use various types of cosmetics.

Many women and young girls simply dress up as well as wear makeup to get compliments from other women rather than men. Social acceptance, pressure and the nature in women to want to attract others, play a vital role in the use of makeup.

6)  Photo Manipulation
Advertising companies, models and stylists are always looking for perfection in any photo or video advertisement they create. This is in any newspaper, magazine, billboard or commercial that you see today. How many of us know that our favorite models probably don't have perfect skin? Yet we just want to compare ourselves to the images of those models and try to achieve the skin of the images we see using makeup. The advances in technology have enabled professional photographers and stylists to apply perfect lighting, photo retouching, as well as other tricky, innovative techniques in making our appearances look like perfection.

5)  Bonding Experience
Wearing or experimenting with makeup for most is considered a female activity and feminine experience. Having makeup knowledge can help women bond when they share application tips, products and other related things with their friends, sisters, as well as female co-workers. Many have seen how a mother is teaching her daughter the techniques of good makeup application. This bonding experience is long lasting and inspires memories within the mother as well as her daughter.

4)  Escape Age
Many women wear makeup to look younger and some young girls to look elder than their actual age. A woman may choose to wear makeup to make her face appear more youthful and give her a "glow". She may gather makeup products and use them to hide early aging signs, such as:  wrinkles, sagging skin spots, blemishes and lines. Some teenagers or young ladies may use makeup to make their appearance more mature than they really are in order to look older.

3)  Look More Unnatural/Change Personality
Wearing makeup can be extremely hilarious on occasions for some women entertaining both themselves and others. They do not want to look like who they are really but they want to look like a role model or someone they idol. So,  they put on makeup to look unnatural or change their entire persona. Without makeup they are simply the regular people who like a mini series on television, puppies on the street and reality shows. With makeup they can be any celebrity they want to portray,  at least they can try to be, and it is fun.

2)  Boosts Confidence
Some women wear makeup to boost their confidence and the amount of makeup that a woman wears to feel confident may vary. Studies have found that when women wear makeup they have the impression of being more intelligent, trustworthy, competent and confident than when they do not. However, the studies have not shown there is proof that women without makeup can be naturally confident and have self esteem.

A woman who looks beautiful without makeup is certainly proud of herself and her appearance. When she decides to wear makeup, she will certainly give off a stronger and more commanding vibe. Of course, a woman can be confident without makeup but wearing it simply enhances her natural self esteem and serves as a booster to her confidence.
