I think subtle make up may look more attractive than no make up, but I can't be sure. I am certain however that if she's wearing enough make up that I can tell she's wearing it, then it's too much and she'll look less attractive because of it.
Those eyelashes just look silly. The amount of make up most girls wear certainly makes them look worse in my view. Perhaps a small amount would be an improvement, but not the amount girls typically wear.
That first photo is rigged. People have eyelashes even without makeup. Also her eyebrows are unnaturally too high up. Totally to skew people into thinking that makeup is "necessary", even though it isn't.
NO makeup! It just adds artificiality to a woman's natural beautiful appearance. It really takes away from a woman's beauty. The more natural a woman is, the more attractive she is. She is at her peak of perfection just the way she was made. No more no less! No makeup, tweezed eye brows, shaved hair, tattoos, jewelry or dyed hair. It's would be sort of like dabbing on a little a little color on the Mona Lisa to spruce her up. Can you imagine?
For online, TV, movie and finally for non reality make up is important but for me (reality) it is not big deal because after getting into a relation ship we have to see all not only beutyful did but also the bitter side.
Obviously the ones with makeup look better, because that's what makeup does. However, I do think that the pictures used are biased, as plenty of people can look very attractive even without makeup.
But in terms of what I prefer in the real world, I personally don't wear much makeup, though I do use some amount on occasion to cover flaws or just look a little better, or sometimes just for fun. For other people, my personal preference in terms of appearance is probably a little bit of makeup, but not a whole lot. Though a lot of makeup can look nice too sometimes, especially the particularly artsy or creative looks. But in general, I don't care either way whether people wear makeup or not. If they want to wear makeup, cool. If they don't, also cool.
I would think that would be a case-by-case thing, considering women as individuals do not all look the same without makeup on. Some women look ill without it, some look plainer, some look perfectly fine. So just to say "no make up or makeup" is rather vague.
In general the guys I know prefer at most light, barely noticeable makeup. Of course a girl that looks great without any of it would be "ideal" but most people don't go around expecting ideal.
I don't wear makeup and look decent. TBH, girls who look like the non-makeup photos only look like that because they wear makeup. Skin doesn't look like that unless you wear makeup all the time because your skin doesn't get sun. If you never wear makeup, you might have acne but your face won't look dead. I never wear makeup and I have acne but my skin never looks dead.
Without makeup you look more natural. The first barbie picture her without makeup that's not a true picture just because you don't wear makeup doesn't mean your ugly. That's how makeup industries make money by telling you you don't look good with makeup... but trust me keeping good skin will erase the need for makeup
Personally I hardly ever wear makeup on everyday\casual basis, I wear it for special events or going to a nice restaurant or something. But when I do wear it I wear eye makeup only and some lip gloss. That's it but I support wearing moderate makeup for people that want to. Just dont cake your face cuz then when you sweat your face will melt XD plus if you don't wear heavy makeup all the time guys will be used to seeing you with little or no makeup and then you dont have the problem of when you dont wear any people think you're sick or not okay XP
Honestly makeup can be used to enhance features. A lot of people just think its to hide blemishes and whatnot, but personally I don't have acne or anything so I only use some mascara & eyeliner which really bring out my eyes! & lipstick sometimes too :) I think there's definitely a point where girls load on wayyyy too much makeup & it looks bad.
When a girl really isn't wearing makeup, she will get "Are you sick?" "You look horrible.." "What is with your face?"
It's very hypocritical really. They blast out how girls with no makeup are the prettiest, but continues to go after the one wearing most. The au natural girl can't get their attention, because she can't compete with those girls with makeup, unless she is born unnaturally pretty with amazing features - which almost never is the case.
