MEN: Do you like women to wear makeup or do you prefer the "natural look"?

WOMEN: Is wearing makeup important to you?

Put little bit of makeup, look natural with makeup sounds good. 8)
If I can see the powder mask from 100 miles away, that's kinda a turnoff, because I think "Oh my, what is she hiding behind that?". 8O That's a kinda obvious cheesy thing to say though.
But I mean it's acceptable to cheat a little with low-maintenence stuff.

I think it also depends on what you're looking for.
For hookup probably more makeup, for relationship less. I think if you're going for something long-term you don't want to be too imposterous.

I don't wear makeup.
Maybe I should start.
Look more 'girly'.

I don't wear makeup, my mom used to tell me that I'm a natural beauty without makeup. I don't feel like I need makeup if I put on makeup, I would put on lipstick or lipgloss.

I like plain Jane.

Makeup makes people look scary.

I like to wear a little makeup if i am going away. At home i usually don't. Usually a little eye shadow for the dark circles, maybe some mascara. Enough to look like i care, but nothing overwhelming for me or the people who have to look at me. I could get by without it and look ok, but it makes me feel more put together.

It depends.

A face full of makeup and a bathing suit looks odd.

No makeup and a formal gown also looks odd.

Most women look better without makeup, anyway; but most also seem insecure with presenting an honest appearance ...

(Story Time)

I was working at a phone center overseas, where students and tourists could purchase time to call home. I overheard one girl arguing with someone, and eventually her voice became loud enough for me to hear what she was saying.

"Mom! Please send all of my makeup! Yes, all of it! There's a cute boy over here, and I want him to see how I really look!"

:lol:

That's funny Mr. F!

Actually, I don't feel comfortable leaving the house without any makeup. However, one time (during the winter when I had my SAD going on and I really didn't give a darn what I looked like) I had a couple of "things" that really needed to get done ASAP so I just jumped out of bed and put my coat on not even bothering to look in the mirror and ran out the door. You know what happened? I got hit on at the car dealership twice! I think it had to be because I looked less threatening when I looked like crap and when I have makeup on I look more intimidating and unapproachable. I told my brother that I need to go out more looking ugly! The guys seemed to like the "a la natural" look - I wonder if they would also like the "a la natural" smell too!! :mrgreen:

You can tell when a Woman with a natural look is beautiful, but what horrors might makeup be hiding?
A little bit around the eyes and lipstick for special occasions, otherwise, natural is sexy.

I don't understand why women need tons of makeup or fake boobs, fake nails & more fake stuff.


More than once, I was hit on with no makeup on, men were attractive to me like bees to honey, but I was skinnier back then. They were other times where men were attractive to me, once I got hit on cuz he liked my legs. There were more times, but not for a very long time now. :(

I don't understand how most of the guys could be saying the natural look. How come then all of the models are ogled all the time - I'm sure the Victoria Secret models aren't "natural" in any sense of the word. :roll: It seems guys say they want one thing, but chase after another.

perhaps the people who have replied are precisely those that aren't spending their time chasing models or ogling them, as much as anyone else. i don't

When we "ogle" Victoria Secret models, we are not really looking at their face.

How about preferring "natural looking makeup"?

Lately I've been opting for a BB cream with a little powder to take the shine away, plus some simple tinted lip balm.
