    I am not exactly sure what you mean by "natural", Jaydawg. But, I would want my darling to be clean shaven with only a touch of makeup - tastefully applied. I do not want to kiss a circus clown and I do not like to see women melting on hot summer days.

    I also find women who dress modestly, to be more attractive than those who show off a lot of skin.

      Also no guy enjoys having lipstick transferred on his own lips, face, or clothes! lol!

      Indeed...you are right about that. Reminds me of one of my favorite martial arts movies "Big Trouble in Little China", when Kurt Russel gets a big lip lock from a woman, whom he saved, only to get her lipstick transfered to his own lips...very funny!

    It depends on the man and what the woman looks like without makeup.  Walking around with really bad acne or skin that looks like the moon without makeup will not turn on too many guys. Men that dislike women for wearing makeup usually mean they dislike (overly made up)  women. (blue/green eye shadow, thick eyelashes a mile long, purple lipstick, glitter sprinkled on their faces, makeup so thick they look like they're about to be buried...etc  For many men that type of look reminds them of prostitutes or Vegas show girls. More often than not a "touch" of makeup will (enhance) a woman's looks. - One man's opinion! :-)

      In my younger years I remember kissing a young woman who tasted like Maybeline. From that day on...I disliked the taste of cosmetics.

    I like no make up for the most part,  I used to be attracted to a woman who wore make up every once in a while.  I dated an African American woman almost twenty years ago that wore her makeup very well.  The bad thing about it was that the first time I saw her without her weave and her make up on I did not recognize her at all. I kept asking her if the girl I was dating was home even after she told me several times who she was.I realize that make up can make women feel better about themselves and improve or change their appearance, but when their appearance is totally changed, it makes be think that they are not being them selves wth me, almost to the point where I think they may have something to hide.   I tend to not trust women who wear makeup and often wonder where they are gong and who they are with when they put on thier makeup and go somewhere without me.  Most women that I have dated that wore heavy make up were not monogamous during our relationship.

      I know what you mean. I sometimes think that women who wear too much makeup are either hiding something, want to be hidden, or are too self-conscious. For some, it is almost like wearing a mask.

    Yes. I love women without makeup.

    I always believe in natural. Makeup actually harms your skin in a way though they make you look beautiful.

      I just read recently that women should throw out their makeup every six months or so, because of bacteria build up...YUCK!!!

    That really would totally depend on the woman.

    i can't speak for men in general but for my own tastes, i don't like make-up on women any more then a bit. my wife rarely wears any and that is one of the things that attracted me to her. why she is attracted to me is something i will always wonder about.

      This is now the 4th time that I find myself agreeing with my polar opposite. :0)

    As far as I can tell, many men prefer to make love to the fantacy but marry reality.

      I will not marry again until my fantasy becomes my reality. :0)

      That's a good move; you'll probably not divorce again.

    I'll probably get in trouble for this ...

    When I was younger, I thought women used makeup to hide blemishes, zits, uneven skin tone etc. I'd think: "She's wearing a LOT of makeup. She must have a LOT to hide."

    And then I got married, and my wife schooled me. "I am accenting my BEST features. Duh."

    She does do a nice job on her eyes. Though I don't think she needs to, they do look sexier when she's done painting, I mean, "accenting" them.

    I am so glad, however, that she does not try to hide her freckles because freckles are sexy.

    It depends on the man. I always preferred a natural look and wore relatively subtle make-up but I remember one guy I went out with telling me later that he was disappointed on our first date because I hadn't worn much make-up, so it looked to him as if I hadn't made an effort.   I wondered if I should try to "glam" myself up a bit more but somehow it just wasn't me. Some years later, I bumped into him with his girlfriend of the time, and she had hair peroxided to within a millimetre of its life and make-up any circus clown would have been proud of.  Apparently that was his idea of sexy smile

    I am a woman who hates makeup and would never wear it for any man.
    It is not a feminist thing, just a strong preference and love for my general health.Besides, the one time i tried when i was younger, i ended up with a reaction i will never forget.
    If a guy cannot love me for me and wants me to change my appearance then he really is not worth it.
    As an African, i am also lucky because in general our features are more defined and accentuating our best features is not really necessary.
    I guess it depends with people and as long as a woman is not looking like a clown, it is okay.

    I am most interested in a woman who is properly dressed rather than make up and this means wearing a nylon slip or petticoat, preferably a shiny white one with lace.
