Society should build a girl's confidence... Not makeup...
mariefata

Pro

yeah but our society has lead us to believe that a girl looks prettier with make-up with commercials and advertisements to make us believe that.

Con

I think you just supported me... Now consider this: Think of all the money a girls could save if she did not purchase any makeup over the course of her life!
mariefata

Pro

yeah saving money would be a benefit, but think of how many jobs that women in Ulta, and people in the makeup stands would lose. they would be out of a job too.

Reasons for voting decision: In harmony with ThomasJefferson, I am inclined to say that this battle was the stuff of DDO legend; songs shall be sung, of how juliecolthorp fiercely thrust a verbal lance of "I think that girls are prettier without makeup," and mariefata valiantly parried with a shield of "I think girls should wear make-up because it is a confidence booster." Hard fought is understatement in reference to this debate. Seldom could it be said that two debaters had fought such a meaningful and thorough debate. Con, by my standards, triumphed at long last, for her argument was just a little better, and Pro did slip, and injure himself with his own blade ("yeah but our society has lead us to believe that a girl looks prettier with make-up with commercials and advertisements to make us believe that").

Reasons for voting decision: Both sides delved into complex and intricate arguments while weighing the social costs and benefits of make-up. For example, girls can save money no buying make-up. And, make-up makes girls look nice. It was a hard fought battle, but the scales ultimately tipped in favor of Pro for having presented a wonderful and detailed critique of the socioeconomic implications of girl's wearing make-up.

Reasons for voting decision: I think PRO wins because if we're concerned about society, the extra jobs help out, if we're concerned about the individual, make-up is a more level playing field (it makes ugly chicks and pretty chicks just as pretty... allegedly).. so win to PRO on the arguments
