Zero makeup - How many guys/girls prefer it? Also, question?

I'm not talking about "it looks like she isn't wearing makeup." I mean *actually* not wearing any.

I don't wear makeup at all (except like 3-4 times a year at special events) and I get called beautiful a lot thank God. I'm really curious because not sure if I look better because I'm *not* wearing it or because I look on the level of girls who normally wear it. Are there girls who look best without it? Or maybe I'm thinking about this wrong and every girl has a look that suits her best (whether or not makeup is included) and I happen to look better as-is.

(It's a little depressing, to be honest, to have people say I look younger and/or not think that I look better when I attempt to dress up and actually wear makeup, just saying... feels like I shouldn't bother but I do like to dress up and add mascara etc. every so often. I don't know if it does anything though.)

  • When i don't wear makeup everyone first asks why i look different and when i tell them i have no makeup on they look suprised and say how could you look so beautiful without makeup, they say i got green eyes i don't need makeup but honestly i love putting makeup on it makes me feel pretty and feminine :)

    • Hahaha my friend had a similar reaction in the opposite scenario: "whoa are you wearing makeup? Weirrrrrd." And yeah that makes sense. :) I am a little unsure what to do bc apparently makeup doesn't really help and I'm like uh ok so what am I supposed to do to go all out if I want to go to a special event or something? And I have green eyes too!

  • I can apreciate both the "no make up look" and the "make up look". It depends on the situation, sometimes it might be nice to see her completely natural other times I think I could appreciate the added effort. That being said I don't like the "overdone clown "look. Less is more :)

    Persoanally i can aplreciate the effort and do think makeup can enhance a girls looks if used correctly. Id say a little eyeshadow, blush, tiny bit of lip stick can definitely highlight a girls natural features and enhance them to make her look more alluring or captivating.

    • I agree but I'm confused bc apparently I look best without makeup so am not sure how to go about looking better when I want to dress up lol. Thx!

    • Yeah, maybe try to watch some makeup tutorials or do some reading online. Or just stick with the natural look since it works for you.
      you must have really nice skin :)

    • I do, thank God - am really grateful bc I didn't have to deal with acne in addition to braces, glasses, and being a nerd. I would like to make my eyes stand out every so often... guess professional makeovers are useful and I wear it so rarely that I might as well get one of those haha. Thanks for the idea :)

  • Well if you ask me, I always prefer people to have no makeup on, especially because mascara is my ultimate arch nemesis (never liked it, don't like it, I think it messes with the way a person looks way too much). So I wouldn't be surprised if you look better without it, most people do under the age of 35. Even then, I've never seen eyeshadow look good, for example.

    • if her face is acne prone and u saw lots of acne would u still accept?

    • @kangy well I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't, I have acne sometimes although I tend to fix that by pushing the crap out of them, but as such I have some scars here and there every once in a while. Worst case scenario I'd just recommend her to go to the cosmetician, those people are legitimately paid for removing those in an efficient manner.

  • I prefer girls to wear a little bit of makeup. Some simple mascara or eyeliner. Nothing heavy or attention-grabbing please.

    • Ok thanks and what would you suggest I do since apparently I look best without makeup but still want to get dressed up every so often (which in my mind includes makeup)?

  • I'm comfortable whether a girl wears make-up or doesn't it makes no difference to me
    i would still love her the same

  • I had a question like this, that got a lot of answers - the poll on it answers your second question.

    For myself - I like wearing makeup - it's fun - but if I'm just lounging around the house, or quickly going to the shops I don't bother.

  • I don't wear makeup. I absolutely hate the dang thing. One of my best friends wears a lot of makeup and I wish she wouldn't. She's so beautiful without it and doesn't even realize it. I wish she would go without it.

    • Does it take away from how good she looks? That's such a strange concept to me given the media etc. - for me I suspect I look best without makeup but would like to know how else I'm supposed to really go all out when I want to go to a special event.

    • I think it makes her look beautiful too. She looks so different with it on and without it on. I think she looks best without it though because it's natural. It's the real her and that's what I want to see. I barely even wear it to professional events. I don't really see what different it makes to go natural vs. makeup.

  • If I'm not going anywhere and just in my area or to a mates house I won't wear any make up.. Work (foundation in my t zone, mascara and lip gloss) and that's it.

    • No makeup at all?

      If that's really you in your pic, you've got really good skin. You could pass for a 20 year old.

      Also just curious why do you change your profile pic so often. I'm not sure if I'm going crazy but I feel like every time I see your profile you have a different pic :/

    • @Bandit74 I would change again soon :PPPPP

    • Lol I'm just glad that I'm not crazy. I was starting to think I was imagining it.

      In my head I was like "there's no way she changes it that often!"

  • I prefer some, but not too much. My normal thing (when I'm not running out the door lol) is to put on a bit of powder, eyeliner, and chapstick. My lashes are already kinda long and dark, so no mascara. Sometimes people can't tell the difference, but I think the eyeliner does make my eyes stand out a little more at least. I like it. Makes me feel more polished and put-together, lol. I use more when I go out or have special occasions.

    About your second question, I don't know about best, but there are definitely girls who look great without it. It's just, usually when a girl has some well-done make-up on, she tends to look even prettier. I mean, that's the function of makeup - to enhance good features and hide flaws. She could still be beautiful without it, I just haven't really come across it being a negative looks-wise for anyone if applied right. Possibly for those guys who dislike make-up in general, it's a plus, though, since they prefer a completely natural face.

    • Guess I should have said "except concealer or foundation" (never quite got the difference)

    • Concealer is for small patches and foundation is an overall coverage.
