List RulesVote up the most jaw-dropping makeup comments.

Other than drag queens and the odd guy that just gets makeup, men don't know a whole lot about the industry or the reasons why women choose to use cosmetics. They don't really understand how much work goes into applying makeup but they sure feel entitled enough to comment on it. Sometimes they assume that it's chivalrous to tell a woman that she doesn't "need makeup" or that they prefer a "natural look" when actually, they come off as pretty oblivious and condescending. Sometimes men are just unrepentant pr*cks about women's appearances, overall but hey, sometimes other women are too.  

The women have stormed Reddit to air their grievances, though! That's right - they're describing the rudest things people have said about their makeup and some of the comments are so egregious that you'll have to laugh to keep from attacking the screen in anger.

    What A Jerk Stranger

    From a Facebook commenter:

    "'You know you don't even look good with all that makeup on and it's just going to give you acne, not like you don't already have it anyways...' A random stranger at the mall..."

    Is this incredibly rude?

    Makeup Isn't All About Attracting Attention

    From a Facebook commenter:

    "'You look like a hooker.' (I was 14 and wearing winged eyeliner and mascara.)

    'You shouldn’t wear so much makeup, guys think you're slutty when you do.'

    'You look so stupid with all that makeup, why are you looking for attention?'"

    Is this incredibly rude?

    Dark Lipstick Isn't "Ladylike" Apparently

    From killjoytrash:  

    "I've had someone tell me that my dark lipstick was "unladylike and unbecoming" of me. Like?? I don't wear this sh*t to be ladylike, I wear it because I frick fracking like it." 

    Is this incredibly rude?

    "You Need Jesus"

    From F*ck_Weyland_Yutani:  

    "I have to assume that my black lipstick played a large role in a woman leaving a note on my car which read "You need Jesus in your life <3." It was not appreciated." 

    Is this incredibly rude?
