  • don't worry girl about him checking other girls out because us men that are straight, (not gay), check out girls with out knowing it as another person said. Guys like me aren't scared of the makeup attracting other guys because when I am in a relationship and know the girl loves me I don't mind what she does because I tend to have trust in some one I know wants me so it comes down to the makeup makes girls look fake and some one they really aren't' and after a while the face starts to have rinkles and uneven skin composition meaning you are going to look ugly with out the make up, and it would start to be a horrific experience to wake up in the morning to a girl that looked hot last night because of the makeup but looks scary in the morning because the makeup is gone after a long night of sleep, so I personally don't like makeup but does not mean I am scared of other guys. So why don't you stick to the true you with pride and confidence instead of changing ur appearance and looking insecure. You also need to ask your guy why he doesn't like makeup because his perspective and mine may not be the same just because we are guys doesn't always mean its the same.

  • Ah the double edged sword. When he says he doesn't like you wearing makeup what he means is he doesn't like you wearing makeup for other guys. Basically the more you get dubbed up, the more you attract other guys. He wants to remove or reduce the competition. It doesn't mean he doesn't like it. All guys like it to some degree because it is attractive when done well.

    Do what makes you feel good and he should accept you for what you are.

    • TRUE. Watch the lifetime movie Lying to be Perfect. One of the woman loses weight and starts feeling good about herself, she wants to go do things that she didn't have the energy to do before and men approach her and buy her drinks. She wasn't skinny. She just started to take pride in herself. Her husband didn't like it and tried to get her to feel insecure like she was b4 it pushed her into having the guts to leave him.

  • my motto reguarding make up is :

    "if your wearing make up it means your ugly. but if you need make up its alreayd too late."

    obviously I don't mean that in a concrete literal sense and there are exceptions e.g skin condtition, or a bit of mascara (black eyelash stuff? but not too much!) ocasionally. but also its normal for boys to look at other girls. its natural and doesn't necicarily mean he wants some one else. I might have looked at other girls but every dirty dream I had was always my girlfriend.

  • Guys are going to look at a female. Lets face it, even gay men still love boobs! Doesn't mean they are going to get rid of their partner for a physical attribute a woman has. Just doesn't work like that. If you could think like a man for just one day you would understand why have an instinct to look at a woman who is easy on the eyes. He says he likes you without make up? That generally means that he likes you for who you are and that will never change in his eyes, even when you get old and wrinkled he will always be able to find beauty in you like the first day you held hands. Stop reading into human instinct so much, this is a rare type of man to get and you should hold on to him.

    • Guys always say they like natural women but they will break their necks to check us out when we are dolled up. In your case, it sounds like your guy doesn't want you to wear make-up possibly from his own insecurities, he doesn't want you to look attractive to other men. When he comments about you putting make-up on you can say something like, "I only have eyes for you." Explain to him that you enjoy wearing make-up, especially when your going out.

    • It is totally not like that! We are going to look at any attractive female whether she is wearing make up or not. Even if we really don't even want to look at her it is just an instinct. We can't help it. Any married woman will tell you this. If he loves you, then he loves you. Women read into stuff like this waaay too much and that's what starts problems.

  • yeah you look like sh*T . I suggest you stop wasting ur money on make up and buy a bag :) wear it.

    but make sure its an EARTH friendly BAg, because your face has caused enuff damage to mother earth and its inhabitants:)

    push up your bo*bs, guys love big bo*bs

  • sometimes some girls actually look better without make up (a more natural look)

  • Don't get all your makeup on to go out, keep it minimal. And as far as him checking out women wearing makeup, it's probably not their faces he's checking out anyway... Or it could be that he's averting his eyes to their faces so as to resist temptation. lol

  • It could be that he's afraid when you'll all dolled up, other guys are going to check you out and he doesn't like that. He could be very insecure

  • I think sometimes guys don't know what they want. My ex used to always tell me that he liked it better when I didn't wear make-up, but honestly? I wear make-up every day. Mascara and tinted moisturizer, with a little pressed powder. I just usually keep it minimal, you know? Pretty but subtle. When I get dressed up, I wear more make-up, which is much more noticable. That's when he thought I was wearing make-up. So maybe he just doesn't like you TOO made up.

  • he does not TOUCH them.. I think otis a GOOD thing.. he is CLOSE to you , & there for wants the REAL you. Like yo could look at a really cool picture, but you would not want your empty space to be filled with pictures all over the place- He wants to be close to you & make up gets in the way.

    You're good.

    :-)

  • Your answer lies in the part where you say "it makes me feel really bad". You shouldn't feel bad in a truly loving relationship.

    I think it could be a situation where he doesn't want you wearing makeup because he doesn't want others to look at you, but it could also be one where he likes you in particular looking natural. Can you ask him?

  • Men are simple creatures. If he says that he doesn't like you wearing make up that's exactly what he means. The question you should ask yourself is why doesn't he like it.

    You automatically thought that he meant that you don't look good while wearing it but perhaps he doesn't like it for other reasons.

    some men are possessive or territorial. He may not like other men looking at his girl.

    Don't be so negative.

  • It can be part of the whole madonna/whore complex where guys want to be with a woman they consider a "good" girl but they lust after women that look like (their idea, not mine) whores. I think it is a big sign of insecurity because if it was simply a preference for women who don't wear makeup, he wouldn't check out women that were wearing it. He wants you to look pure and simple so other men won't be checking you out the way he knows he would.
