Body Art

I have a neighbor that I lust after.
She's married, kids, two cars and a dog normal suburban type lady that I find very attractive.
All things being equal, I'd date her in a minute.

This attraction wasn't an instant thing, tho; it built up a bit at a time. First thing I noticed was her dark hair and eyes, and her chest. (yup, I'm male, no doubt)

I'm used to seeing her doing around the house stuff, like working her flowers, raking the lawn, getting the kids off to school... In other words, not dressed up to go out. That's the person that I lust after, ya see, the wife/mother/homeowner, dressed to suit her own ego/needs for whatever project she has going on at home. And in that context I've developed a great fondness for her and an almost painful desire (sometimes) to just comfort her when she feels down or whelmed or irritated... And, of course, there's the more lusty desires, too.

One day I walked into her place of business to do something I don't remember. What I remember is not recognising her at first because she was made up and dressed to be out in public. She has a nice complexion that tends toward tan to go with the dark hair and eyes, but that day she looked whitewashed and painted. Her face didn't match the color of her neck or chest or arms, and her clothes were dressy and nice but not flattering to her figure.

This brought home to me the fact that I really don't like the social convention of make-up and dressy clothes. It's a convention that I can afford to flaunt due to my own profession; my work clothes are also the clothes that I choose to wear for other things. So I look at people daily and I begin to wonder how their public "face" really reflects their ego. That is, given their druthers, how would they dress and act? Would they paint themselves and spray on their jeans? Or would they be generally clean but in more loose fitting clothes and no makeup?
Does the habit of wearing makeup become an expression of ego, even if one would rather not wear any at all?
It seems kind of odd to me to spread various types of stuff on oneself; almost like intentionally getting filthy in order to be acceptable in public. Frankly, I don't really want to kiss makeup. It feels and tastes nasty to begin with, and it almost always includes some form of perfume that makes my nose tickle and my throat hurt. (I have a real problem going down the soap aisle at the market)
Tattoos are both better and worse. On the one hand, they're permanent art on the body, a truer reflection of ego, I think, because of their permanence. On the other, a tattoo by definition and design doesn't look like a natural part of the skin, regardless how fetching the image itself.

Perhaps I'm just being snobbish or arrogant, but the heavy, pancake make-up that's so common in the south just doesn't do anything but puzzle me.

And I still prefer my neighbor in her at-home natural state to the made-up, go out in public state.
And looking at women out in public is not nearly so much fun knowing that, at least to me, they will look different, and probably better, without all the clown paint.

Your mileage may vary, of course....

Normally I wear no makeup. Once in a great while, depending on my mood, I will wear some to work, or to go out.

I don't wear makeup either....and very seldom wear perfume anymore. I'm just "ME".
