• Its, There face

    People should be able to do something without being judged. It's not fair there getting judged because there doing something they like to do or they have fun doing. To some people make is like a toy they do for fun not because they don't like there self. To all the people that do to be pretty everybody has there beauty weather it's inside or out.

  • Teen Girls Can Be Insecure - Especially When They Have Acne!

    Teenage girls in schools everywhere can be very insecure, It comes naturally with all the changes and hormones. And when you have zits, It can become very uncomfortable to be seen with then in public. Now you might say, "if girls are being bullied for their spots, That's a different problem! " but it's not about the bullies, And the mean comments, It's a girl's own internal anxiety about her face and her skin. If makeup improves her confidence, Then there's no reason why she should have that taken from her! It's a (good) school's job to nurture their students as well as teach them. Makeup doesn't hurt anyone, And can help a girl feel more comfortable in her own skin.

  • And if school is for education, Why humiliate or suspend a student for wearing makeup?

    Makeup is some form of way someone expresses themselves, It doesn't matter if may it be a man or a woman, Wearing makeup is a right because it expresses opinion. Or if you say that you think that it bothers their studies, Why suspend a student for wearing makeup? That's the point of school, Education, Why is the school so torn up on having so much rules restricting the students if the only damn point of school is morals and education? And if it "draws male gaze" then shouldn't schools should teach male students that school is for education not to get into someone's pants? Jesus Christ, It's their face who gives YOU the right to tell them want to do with THEIR faces.

  • They deserve a personal choice

    When some kids decide they need to really be different they go makeup. For some this is helpful and I'm one of them. Makeup can show a form of artistry or personality but either way makeup makes teens happy. So many people get bullied when they don't have cosmetics on but when they do they feel strong about themselves and that's why I think teens should be able to wear makeup

  • I agree girls should be able to

    Girls should be able to wear as much makeup to a minimum maybe foundation eyebrow and mascara if it makes them feel better LET THEM. Here not disrupting theirs or anyone’s learning time infact the more teacher pull children out of lessons about it the more the teachers are to blame if anything.

  • Yes all students should be allowed to wear makeup regardless on their gender.

    Makeup is a way to express yourself. Make up is fun and versatile. Every when I wake up and get ready for school I look forward to putting on my favorite dramatic winged eyeliner. I mean school dress codes are dumb enough. Personaly makes me feel confident and feminine. If you feel good wearing makeup, Wear It! 😀

  • Yes because it's their face

    Many people think it would be distracting or something along those lines when the fact of the matter is that the teachers are there for legitimately only one reason which is to TEACH and how is something on someone's face that THEY have chosen(exercising their freedom and free right) to put on THEIR(their face not anyone else's BUT their OWN) face hindering their education or the ability to take in the INFORMATION that is SUPPOSED provided by teachers who should be more worried about students' education and not worried what's on THEIR face

  • It's her face.

    Not my face-- HER face.
    Why are we demonizing make-up? Is it considered a sign of maturity? But don't we want mature people? Doesn't having freedom allow you to put whatever you want on your face, And if you get pimples, Then its your fault for not washing it off?
    Again-- Her face. Not mine.

  • So many reasons

    This should go without saying.
    -if a girl choses to wear makeup, That's her choice nobody is forcing her either which way and she should have control over her own face
    -the ability to have complete control over the way you look is very empowering.
    -doing makeup in the morning can have a very similar effect to yoga or meditation, Putting you in a better state of mind at the beginning of the day making it easier to focus in class
    -freedom of expression
    -lifts self esteem/ helps you learn to love and accept your natural face
    -promotes individuality

  • It feels empowering and doesn’t affect anything.

    People who say “it’s a distraction” or “it’ll lower the self esteem of the other girls” or like “people will make fun of her”.
    1. How is it distracting, It’s just powder and other products on his/her face. It only becomes distracting when you bring it up.
    2. It won’t lower the self esteem of others. If they don’t like it they can look away, Or even wear makeup as well.
    3. People are always gonna find reasons to hate.

  • You go to school to Learn! Not to have a fashion show!

    Who cares if your ugly, Who are they to judge. You should be proud of yourself for who you are. After your finish your education and start earning money live your life. Do whatever you want. But now go to school and learn!
    What is there to cover up about yourself? Be free!

  • Lying is immoral

    Despite what Cartesian nonsense people believe these days, The way you treat your body actually matters. And therefore, You should not be dishonest with your body by making it look how it does not naturally look. This also evokes lust in others who may not want to lust, And therefore it is violating their quest for virtue. The charitable thing to do would be to respect the dignity of others by presenting your true self to them so that there is not a barrier between you two or a deception or manipulation and to guide them in virtue, Not lead them astray in vice. Not to mention, It’s vain and prideful.

  • It wouldn't be good for the future

    I am a boy Korean, And in Korea, Every elementary school wears make up, Too. They want to hide there complex with the make up, But it wouldn't be good for their future. Most of the students don't have money to buy a famous and popular, Safe brand's makeup, So they buy is at the stationary store. Every stationary stores at Korea has lots of variety of make up, And they are cheap so the students love it. Every make ups are under 10 dollar, And it will never be good for their face. They will be millions of chemistry products inside, And will harm the face at the future.

  • Education Comes First

    You came to school to learn not to make yourselves beautiful. You are already Beautiful in he inside. Beauty doesn't matter but what is inside your heart lies the true beauty and perfection. No one hates you because you don't look beautiful instead we accept you if you are a kind heartened person and never forget that.

  • Teach kids about beauty

    Yada Yada beauty comes from the heart, yeah I bet all y'all are done with this cliche sentiment. But wouldn't it actually be an ideal environment if students were bare-faced? Think about it, students will learn to appreciate those around them even if they're full of acne and find out that- news flash- beauty has ZERO correlation with a person's values. Also, no more social hierarchies( Hint: Beauty=Fame). What's so bad about this? Now, students should be focusing on their education, friendships and experiences, not how their classmates would look at them once they've achieved ultra-fleek eyebrows. Anyway, no one said they couldn't do makeup at home¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • Firearms and cosmetics

    If one gets trained to wear makeup the other should get to carry a loaded weapon or a tazer or a hand grenade. With the proper training of course.
    Maybe they should be allowed to openly sell drugs in the hallways.
    The mainstream media is constantly promoting pedophilia teachers as heros.
    Why not all these things and more?

    All the arguments for makeup can be equally argued for all the outlandish topics that happen, and shouldn't, in schools.

  • They shouldn't wear it.

    I am from Germany so sorry for the grammar.

    Okay, so I think they shouldn't because of its just a waste of money, your parents work hard so you having something to eat and live in, and you want all of that hard work go, for you just to feel 'confident'? I mean you may look like a Victoria's Secret Model with all of that on your face, but when you take it off you still who you are before you woke up at 4/5am and stared into a mirror for like 1 and half hours applying it. I am 15 years old and I don't even want to try it on because no one is bothered how I look even if I don't have the slimmest body and perfect face and skin. You do not have to seek approval from others you are human if you are associated with a group of friends that expect you to follow every Instagram trend. They are not even your friends, 'friends' are the people that support you, whatever you choose to do in life they will always be there. And if you still not on my side because you think if you stop wearing it you will get bullied and that how it leads to depression and anorexia, it's not.
    Why people get depression or anorexia of getting bullied:
    -THEY CARE ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK. (ik it not that simple to change your mindset)
    If you get one of those two, it's mostly your fault, you care about what people think, you may come to conclusions too soon. Those people will not be in your future, you will do better than them in life ;)
    (What is more important to you, opinions of few popular girls/boy that you will have to cope for few years or your dreamed career and future that you are working so hard on?)

  • Self-confidence? Or Stupidity?

    As a student who still studies, I see many girls waking up at least 4 in the morning just to fix their hair and makeup. I don't see the point in wearing makeup every single day to school when you are going to remove it when you get back home, then reapply it the next day. If you had to be honest, for those who wear makeup, how many have complained that they don't have any money left because they just bought the new "luxury makeup product". Or perhaps those who spend money on makeup, who's money are you actually using? Is it your parents or your own? If students weren't wearing makeup in the first place then maybe there won't even be this insecure feeling because then everyone would be the same. When we are born we are given the honour to have a natural beauty complex, but washing this away with harmful chemicals that are smothered across our face isn't good for us or even to industries. How can any child focus in lessons if all they're doing is checking if their fake eyelashes are still sticking on? Or if their lipstick isn't smothered anywhere?

  • School is not a fashion show!

    I personally believe that there is no reason that girls should be allowed to wear makeup. School is about learning and is not a fashion show. If girls are being bullied because of how they look the school should deal with that problem separately . There is no excuse to bully someone.

  • People should defiantly be able to wear makeup (male or female)

    I honestly am baffled by the way people have a viewpoint on makeup. Some girls and boys don't wear makeup because they don't feel confident and they want to attract guys. Some people wear it because they love makeup. I (personally) don't go full out with makeup. I just put on a light BB cream and sometimes I wear mascara (I'm in 7th grade). I wear makeup because I like the look of it. I don't wear makeup because I "hate" myself. Thankfully in my school it's not against the rules to wear makeup. Honestly, if it was I would wear makeup anyway. It is my face, I am allowed to do what I want with it. Can come to school with blue eyeshadow and yellow lipstick if I wanted to. It's MY face.
