    A question to all men.

    Do you like women in a full on make up or without it (or in a light make up).Do you like them being natural or otherwise with cosmetics.Ladies,you may answer too.

    Natural is better.  The more makeup they have the more maintenance they require. 

    A more natural woman looks good practically anytime.  Women with a lot of makeup either need it or have self esteem problems.

    A little makeup is alright.  The key is moderation and having confidence in yourself and not in what others think beauty is.

    Don't mind a bit of makeup, but a lot of it makes 'em look like clowns in my eyes. Plus I always I wonder how girls think they improve with that uh layer of errr stuff over their faces.

    I much prefer the natural look. Women who wear too much make-up don't seem to like the 'look' of their own skin. Piling on the make-up deprives their skin of exposure to air and sunlight which keeps the skin healthy - so once committed to wearing heavy make-up they have to keep it for the rest of their lives as their skin deteriorates.

    There are occasions when heavy make-up is - I think - appropriate: such as club nights, when the girls are out on the town - dancing under strobe-lights etc. It 's a continuation of the 'dressing-up' they did as little girls. Now that they are big girls is no reason to change this behaviour.

    I appreciate natural beauty because I love great things that are real.

    And i think male  should like natural beauty, because it won't easily change.

    makeup is ok as long as it isn't caked on. my wife rarely wears any unless we are doing something special and i love that about her.

    As a man I prefer women with no make-up!!
    Just good hygiene and combed hair with well exposed face is far more honest and sincere to me.

    The human face is a great communication tool, it would be nice to keep disguises off. Personally, I feel anyone who appreciates make-up is actually comfortable with an illusion. I am feel far more secure in seeing the truth what ever it may be.

    Make-up wastes a great deal of time and money. It has become an socially accepted obsession.

    Thanks for this good question!

    The ideal amount of makeup is just enough so the man does not suspect it is being used.  Don't exceed that limit.

    I prefer  the  fresh clean  natural look of beauty as god  gave  it. A very small amount of  make up is ok as long as its not over done.

    Some one  once said  to me  "Why didn't you marry  a more  beautiful woman.?" I said,  There  is no one  better than her!

    I prefer the natural look.  A little bit of makeup is fine, but when it is overdone it looks fake.  Real beauty is always preferred.

    I believe its up to the woman to decide if they want to look a curtain way for themselves and not for a man. I for one don't mind, they can go with or without. Physical attraction shouldn't be the "I Do" and or attention grabber but a respectable personality. That's where a woman can get my attention.

    I prefer natural, with perhaps just a TINY amount of accentuation. I especially dislike kissing lipstick. Give me natural lips every time. Stay away from the paint.

    Natural all the way! Makeup should be used to accent beauty, not hide it! I love my wife because she is a real woman, not some fake thing with paint on.

    It depends on the woman (the face). But I prefer my wife without make up. She's gorgeous in her own natural beauty.

    Natural look of a woman without make up is more attractive  than with make up. When we happen to see a woman  with her full  make up, we try to recognize her and when we are sure of her identity, we  feel that her look  stands for  a cosmetic value only  which  wipes out with a mere stress or exposure. But the natural look of a woman does not conceal her actual identity irrespective of  stress or exposure.

    i also would prefer a natural look of a lady instead of make-up but sometimes a lady to whom i like is in makeup it would be awesome.

    without make up a woman may be beautiful but with make up she lookes better than previous one.It depends on the condition because you can't hangout  every time with makeup.I will go with light make up because natural beauty is not the good looking face only ; it is good heart, good nature , good feelings and good thoughts.

    BE A GOOD WOMAN FIRST ........  smile

    Very little make up. A little eyeliner and that colored stuff on the eyelids is Pretty. Other than that when a woman needs a chisel and hammer to remove her makeup at night, she has gone to far. Also, it's suspicious to me that the woman is either stuck up, self loathing, or just going to be bitchy when her face is fake with make up.

    Absolutely the natural look - I can understand why women wear some make-up, but there's nothing worse than when a woman cakes it on (and interestingly enough, it's often women that don't need to - they're just insecure).

    The purpose of makeup - at least from my perspective, I suppose I'm no expert - is to act as a sort of 'polish,' to simply accentuate your best assets and perhaps minimize your worst. It's certainly not to act as a mask, so that when your partner wakes up beside you in the morning, they can barely recognize you.

    Generally I don't care much for make up on a woman. It is a mask, an attempt to present a package they are not. I don't mind when we are gong out to something fancy and she wants to look nice, but it really isn't about what men want but more a spirit of competition among women.

    Men appreciate beauty sure, but we don't care so much about looks as much about being willing partners with a real personality, in the dark everyone pretty much looks the same. A woman's allure and beauty is not just in what she looks like but how she presents herself as a person. If this were not the case there would be a lot more single women out there than there are now.

    a little bit of make up is ok sometimes but ultimately I prefer natural everything when it boils down to it!

    Too many women are paranoid though and think they need make up when they do not. True beauty is when you can look great and feel great with out the need of make up.

    I really despise lipstick, it's horrible and only a few women can pull it off, even if they pull it off, and it looks good, I am still not too fond of it.

    Natural beauty any day!

    I have never really cared to wear makeup myself.  I tend to be allergic to makeup.  I think I look better without.  When I try to wear makeup, I feel like I am not being meā€¦fake.

    Makeup should help enhance beauty, even out skin tone, or high light features.  Some tend to go overboard with the application, which can make a person unattractive.  That person may even be hiding behind the makeup.

    Natural look is the best.  I have seen some women with almost three layers of makeup it looks bad.  Just imagine how insecure they feel about their own appearance to go through that much effort in hiding it.

    I like light-to-natural. Or, as long as it doesn't look too much, as it seem to be wearing a mask and almost unrecognizable.

    My beloved always told me he liked me with a minimum of makeup and plenty of smiles, which suits me well. I know what helps and suits me, so I wear bits of eye makeup, dabs of cheek and lip color. But a thick, heavy, unnatural look does not help or fit my preferences.

    If I only would choose one makeup item, it will be a bit of help for straggly eyebrows.   I had lovely thick brows when young but the fad was to pluck them.  They didn't all grow back, which might be a caution for girls now following all the fads when it comes to actually altering one's natural looks with piercings, tattoos, cosmetic surgery, etc!  One keeps living and outgrows some stuff which, unfortunately, doesn't follow one's lead.  Knowing what would really benefit you is a matter of giving it thought, not just following fads or whims.  You're beautiful as you are, you know.  The best "makeup" is good skin care & health habits, a lovely expression, bright eyes and smile and genuine interest in others. And those will never desert you as you grow throughout life.

    It's amazing to see that nearly every answer so far prefers very little or no make up at all. Great question.

    I personally prefer no make up at all. My wife only wears make up on special occasions when she wants a slightly different look.

    Women seem to mostly wear make up as a confidence booster. But I think it's a slippery slope. Because all that time spent closely examining your face specifically looking for imperfections to cover up, just undermines confidence in the first place!

    Please dont take anything im,about to say disrespectful to women because i do talk and am friends with all women but like anyone have preference over who i date. It sounds like a preference question anyways.

    If a woman "requires" a lot of make up, not only is that disgusting, but it makes you wonder what she has to hide. I seen women who now have to wear a lot of make up because of what the make up did to their faces from wearing too much in the first place from a young age.

    No make-up can be pretty but also pretty plain. It doesnt take up any real time for a women to put on some lip gloss and maybe just a tad of whatever it is they use to even out skin tone. Foundation? (The word just seems to make sense, Lol)

    A bit of makeup is ideal always to me. You're not overdone, or fake, or gonna scare the daylights outta me one day when i see you without it one day. Using it in the right place, for the right occasions, to compliment your attire, and give you a little sparkle... well there's nothing wrong with that!
