Since most girls require makeup, do you think there are actually more good looking guys since they are all natural?

Have you guys seen girls with no make up, look up models and then look at how they look with no makeup. Terrible right, now look at guys who are considerd goodlooking who have not got plastic surgery, can you honestly tell me that there are actually more good looking girls then guys?

  • Note that "good looking" is a subjective descriptor. Also note that, since the majority of (western) women can and do erase their flaws/highlight their good points via IRL Photoshop, ie cosmetics, the "norm" for women is much higher than is true. Guys don't literally cover their flaws, therefore most men's natural appearance, baggy eyes, acne scars, and all, is society's expectation of what an average man looks like (and therefore what a mate finds acceptable). You can see this fluidity again in comparing what "stereotypically effeminate" gay men consider a "good looking guy" vs. what straight women do.

    TL;DR: mass perception = expectations = societal standards.

    • To directly answer ur question: yes, I think there are more "ugly" women than men. A woman who has very dark, sunken undereye circles is more noticeable than a man who does because, compared to her peers, she's the exception to the rule. But, if you stripped away preconceived notions, I don't believe women are less attractive on a whole than men because the true denominator of beauty are symmetry and proportionality.

  • Girls don't "require" makeup. Don't use models as representations for regular people. There are as many average looking men as there are average looking women.

  • Um, they don't "require" it. lol
    I don't honestly think the scale is too tipped.

    You can't just compare models to average people.
    There are naturally good looking guys *and* girls, y'know

  • I think we're just socialised to think women only look good with make-up. Beauty's a very cultural thing; think about cultures where for example women are the most beautiful if they pierce and stretch their lips.
