Men, do you prefer women who wear makeup, or women who go for a natural look?
I love to wear makeup, but after years of doing it, I don't feel like I look like a clown and I receive a lot of compliments on my makeup. However, I have had many people tell me I wear too much?
What is your preference, makeup or no makeup?
This is just my preference, but I prefer either no makeup, or just a little to enhance the natural look (especially if going out someplace fancy). I think a woman who has worn a lot of makeup in the past may find that, in going more natural, the compliments will change. Instead of compliments on your makeup, you're likely to get compliments on how *you* look!
One exception: If going for an exotic look, such as putting your hair in a purple mohawk, makeup to match is expected!
My wife does not wear makeup and I love that about her. The only time she ever wears it is when she wants to "doll up". I think natural beauty vastly outweighs "fake" beauty. Not saying people who wear makeup are fake, but it can be a source to cover up bad characteristics, which is kind of lying about your looks. Makeup can also play the other way and accentuate great characteristics but use it in moderation. Natural beauty for the win.
I beg to differ. I wear baggy clothes every once in a while because they are comfy, not to cover up a bad body. I think I look decent without makeup, I just like myself more when I have it on.
Right. You do not wear the makeup because it is more comfortable, you wear it because it enhances your features. And I would never assume someone wearing baggy pants was trying to cover up their body... but that is just me.
Well, I think many people do assume that, especially when females do it. Most females wear form fitting clothing to ENHANCE their body shape, but I occasionally love to be lazy and wear clothes that are three sizes too big.
Yeah I guess it would be the expected assumption from most people. But that's where you should do what you want because you enjoy it. My wife wears baggy clothes all the time because she feels like being lazy. Doesn't make her less attractive at all.
Well, then you are among the respectable men. Some men want their wives/girlfriends to always be "dolled up" for them. I knew a guy that broke up with his girlfriend because of the way she looked in the morning when she first woke up. Very shallow.
I think one reason you men don't like makeup as much, is because you don't understand it. To you, it covers up a face, it takes a long time to put on and it's expensive. (I have been told all those things by previous boyfriends). Does that make sense? Could this be one of the reasons?
It all depends on the woman and the makeup. If she uses it sparingly to enhance her natural features there is nothing wrong with it. On the other hand if she is wearing a full on MASK or heavy caked on bright colored goo, that is not so good. Also skip the glitter! :-)
Really?!?! I LOVE glitter. I wear it pretty regularly. Not crazy kid glitter, but I do use it and have a lot of it.
There's a time for glitter and even costumes. Maybe Faerie Worlds? See Parks McCard's photos at http://parksmccants.hubpages.com/hub/Or … orlds-2012 /
A woman in her 30s, 40s and beyond really should let go of the "glitter days" unless it's for a costume. One man's opinion! :-)
Thankfully there is someone for everyone!
My wife is 52 and she used glitter nail polish last week - at a costume party, dressed as a college student. (She's a professor.)
That's awesome! Very cliche (college student wearing glitter nail polish). I love it.
Just a gentle touch of natural make up,not too scenty and gentle shades to enhance nice feature.But prefarably the natural look.Shaving hair from parts of the body is not necessarily that sexy. As natural as poss.
PS Seems you are naturally attractive,why ruin it with loads of paint and chemicals?
I don't use chemicals. I use BareMinerals, which is a mineral makeup. It looks more natural and is good for your skin. And I do it because I like it, and I feel good when I take the time to do my hair and put makeup on.
Personally i think a women looks good when she feels confident.
With or without makeup, She is still the same person.
Of course I assume we are not talking about extremes here. Because if it is an extreme case of one inch of makeup or the natural look. I vote for natural.
i would definitely prefer a no makeup woman.....after all when you meet someone right you have to accept them truly ......but it is the duty of both spouses to dress up nicely and appear attractive to their counterpart ..... maybe then makeup would be the suitable choice......but someone who does heavy makeup all the time....... my heart just doesnt feel it
I prefer a woman who goes with her natural look most of the time, but it doesn't bother me if she decides to wear makeup every now and then. I actually like it. So I like both, but I don't really care for the glitter.
I think this is a good way to look at it! Natural is best many times. I don't wear makeup a lot of the time on the days I workout because it's pointless. But on my 2 days off, I get dressed up
Definitely NO MAKEUP.
Because beauty lies in your sole.
I personally feel that every person is special, and if you are using makeup then you are hiding your specialty given by nature.
People(specially men) get amazed by seeing natural beauty but not the makeup one.
Do you find celebrities attractive? Ever seen a movie where you thought, "Wow that girl has a gorgeous face". Those women wear makeup. To enhance their natural beauty! I think that is key. Not overdoing it, just playing up your looks.
I never feel someone attractive unless she is really pretty. Makeup cannot change my mind, it can only confuse me(for short period of time). No matter how much you do makeup no one will say WOW if you are naturally not beautiful I bet you.........
I think beauty is just skin deepness....if u peel off the skin every one is same....So makeups are just to polish your skin
I'm partial to eyeliner. I don't have strong feelings towards any other kind of makeup, but I think eyeliner is really sexy. Having said that, my wife rarely wears makeup and I still think she's beautiful without it.
I can appreciate the aesthetics and artistry involved in an application of makeup, be it simple or exotic. I have applied make-up to another that was considered so striking, that they wore it for the rest of the day and apparently received many compliments thereupon.
I recall one experience of my own where I was involved in a theater production, and was out in the halls between acts still in make-up. Some people who knew me walked by, stopped dead, did a double take, and completely checked me out. Then they realized it was me, embarrassedly commented that the make up actually made me look good for once, and hurried away. I was not popular as a youth; book-worm recluse type designated as "weird".
I confess however, that I prefer no makeup. The reason is quite simple. Make up tastes bad, and masks the natural scent.
I would go for the second one. You are beautiful just the way you are. Little make up is fine... keep smiling:)
no makeup for me I like the natural women not the painted tart

Do men prefer women who are natural & don't wear much makeup or a madeup woman?
