I almost died the other day. My Best friend for ten years went to the spa with me. She got A facial stripped her makeup off. I never thought it looked like she wore too much... And I feel bad for this but she is really ugly without it. I was shocked because she usually looks so stunning. Guys your thoughts on This? I mean what would her boyfriend say if he saw her like that? Or will her personality be enough for him to look past that?

I think this is an issue a lot of people are thinking about now. With thousands of makeup tutorials on youtube, and a sephora in every mall, it seems like half of the people we see are actually sporting the fake "hot" version of themselves.
Guys always say they prefer the natural look. But what they mean is they don't want to notice any makeup on the girl. However, I've seen it a million times, both on this site and in real life, they of course inevitably are attracted to girls who are wearing plenty of "natural" looking makeup.
When we put on well-matched and blended concealer, foundation, translucent powder, and contour, plus thin tasteful liner, mascara, blush, and lipgloss, it looks "natural". Sure, lots of girls wear colorful eyeshadow, clumpy mascara, winged liner, and heavy bronzer, not to mention unblended badly matched base, but then they are branded as wearing "too much" makeup. Hear me out: they are often not actually wearing any MORE makeup than the "hot" girl. They're just not putting in on in a way that *looks* natural.
So basically, my point is that this kind of thing is VERY common. People most often do NOT look the same without their makeup, no matter how natural their makeup looks. In fact, it can be even more shocking to see the toned down makeup off, because they look like a totally different person.
If you always saw your friend without makeup, you would be used to her looking that way. The reason it shocked you so much and looked extra ugly was because you're used to seeing her made up.
I have heard guys tell me they do get disappointed when a girl they thought was hot takes off her "natural" makeup and they realize she's not. I also know that a lot of guys know and expect that girls wear makeup and they don't notice or care about it that much as long as the makeup itself isn't ugly or obvious.
So, basically, a lot of women wear makeup because they don't like the way they look. There's nothing wrong with making yourself look better, but it's better to do it as a result of self confidence rather than as a lack of it.
Probably how her boyfriend reacts to her depends on what kind of person he is. I've heard of married women who seldom if ever let their husband see them without makeup. If someone ends up wearing makeup the majority of the time, that sort of become more the "real" them than the real them... It's all about what you're used to.1
