Most Helpful Girl
In 2006, Cosmo did a study on men's opinions on makeup. They were presented with three pictures of the same model.
One with minimal makeup: concealer and mascara.
Another one with slightly heavier makeup: foundation, concealer, light blush, mascara, lip gloss.
A third one with full makeup: foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, lip gloss.
It's important to note that none of these girls looked overly made up but they did look different in every photo.
85% of men preferred the third photo. When asked if they thought the girl was wearing makeup in the latter photo, they answered that she was wearing either minimal or none. Furthermore, when asked what makeup they thought she had on, they answered lip gloss and sometimes eyeliner.
Men love makeup. They largely prefer it. They just don't like heavy makeup. And they don't know that they like makeup.4
