Guys, do you prefer girls with make-up or none?

I hear some say they like when a girl shows her flaws and some say they l like girls who do wear make up. I want to know who prefers what.

  • I honestly prefer girls without makeup especially if I'm dating them or are going to be. Like I dont mind makeup on special occasions but for every day things I dont look like it. The way I see it is I'm dating YOU not Maybelline. And if I need makeup to think your attractive or if you think I do then that's a problem.

      Well maybe it's because people respond better to it. Some people say others think they're tired or sick looking without it on. Or how sales representatives at stores ignore them more when they're not wearing any.

      I feel like the superficial people are more friendly when I have it on but I wouldn't want to associate with anyone who's only going to be my friend when I look good. Reminds me of high school -__-

      that's true. maybe its just me then but I could never date a girl who wore makeup 24/7 even when we were alone together. its not that its not the real her or anything like that its the fact that I feel insulted if its assumed she needs to wear makeup for me to think she is attractive. I feel like its calling me shallow. so for me at least I prefer as little makeup ad possible unless its a special occasion.

  • I like girls who look their best.

    For most I'd say that can call for a minor amount of cosmetic enhancements, at least according to my preference (I've mostly lived in very urban and fashionable areas, I might have gotten used to women who dress up fancy and make themselves up).

    However, there are times I see a girl without make-up. Just the other day I saw one of my female acquaintances after she got all sweaty and worked out outside with no make-up, and I was surprised how pretty she looked in spite of it with her shirt soaked in sweat and no make-up whatsoever from what I could tell. Yet she's an exceptionally attractive girl in her late 20s with or without make-up. But maybe seeing her without any (I usually see her with a bit of make-up) made me so fascinated with how pretty her face looked in spite of it.

    So girls to me who look amazing without make-up are quite beautiful. There's no possible way for them to look anything but gorgeous. Yet it's only a small minority of women who have that kind of effect on me without make-up. For most, I feel like they look their best with a small amount.

      With the girl I'm talking about, her skin complexion is completely clear and smooth. There isn't a single blemish on her face. She doesn't have very thick eyelashes but the balance of her facial features works well without so much contrast in the eye area. Her nose is delicate, her lip color doesn't contrast so much with the rest of her face which is narrow. It's the type of face that looks quite stunning to me even without any prominent features attracting.

      For her I'd say I preferred seeing her without make-up just because she doesn't need any whatsoever to have one of the prettiest faces I see around. Yet it's a very rare breed of girl where I'd say that I prefer her without any make-up whatsoever. For most I prefer a small amount.

  • Whatever the hell she wants to do

  • i love a girl who is attractive and is confident not wearing makeup at all. i am totally fine if a girl chooses to apply a moderate amount of makeup to accentuate a few features.

    i just don't like when makeup is caked on to the point that you almost feel the person is wearing a mask

  • Maybe an unpopular opinion, but i'm going to say relatively little. Too much is gross, I generally don't mind none. But I think everyone can agree makeup does some crazy shit when used right.

  • None or very little if they can pull it off. Most women are insecure about how they look ( can't really blame them with the way media portray woman these day) so they will wear make-up.

    I give major point to the one that can pull off the no-make up look though. Take some real confident. (Also no need to wait 5 hours for her to "get ready" when we go somewhere)

  • I prefer that nice balanced look. You know, a little makeup for an elegant evening out but there's no reason to go around the house with a full face of makeup for no reason. :P

  • I like to see the "without", but if we're going somewhere I make it a point to look nice, so I would expect her to as well. If, to her, that means make up... so be it.

  • You don't need all that make up to look good , just be yourself or even go with minimal make up if you want.

  • Both, girls look cute when they got dark circles and acne scars, and girls also look cute when they got a black smoked out eyeshadow and heavy contouring/highlighting. I personally wear makeup a bit on the heavier/gothicish side, but I just like girls overall.
