I always hear guys on here saying they prefer girls that don't wear any makeup because makeup is "high maintenance" and "fake". I always thought most guys really don't know what they're talking about because they don't truly know what the average woman looks like without any makeup on at all. I know they probably don't like unnaturally fake looking makeup, but no foundation, eye shadow, liner, concealer at all? Really?
I'm not picking on her at all, I think she is very beautiful, she was just an easy example to use since she is one of the few celebs we've seen without makeup.
Also try to imagine no makeup on the average non-celebrity girl. Do you guys STILL think makeup is fake and girls look better without any on? Or are you just saying that you prefer a natural look and not as if it's caked on or badly applied with unflattering colors?
Even in those makeupless pictures, it's obvious the lightning and hair are perfect. Not to mention that she already has nice features.
There is nothing wrong with a girl taking care of herself.
I think what guys mean is they hate obvious orange tans, tons of mascara and apparent lipgloss with glitter. Using only concealer, some eyeliner, natural tinted lipstick and a bit of mascara makes you look pretty and natural at the same time - it just brings out your face more and hides some blemishes you might have.
You can also go out with no make-up at all if you look that great, but most of us do need a little help and it works wonders. ^^
Using bolder make-up is a good move at parties or certain social gatherings, but is overboard for daily use.
Oh come on, the first "no make up" picture is enhanced with photoshop. Otherwise, the best out of those is the first natural one and the second nomakeup one. :P
Look. Make-up can be useful to cover up minimal skin perfections, so you won't have zits lying around on your head - if I knew what people use for that, maybe I'd use that too. But eye shadow and eye liners? Whenever I see a girl wearing those.. A while ago, I used to believe they are sluts. No kidding. Now I actually see the picture, and I realize that they are all just afraid of what they truly look like, and need this to enhance their confidence and self-esteem, to make themselves believe that they are pretty that way. Because people (like their mother, relatives, friends etc.) told them they were pretty ONLY when they were wearing makeup.
Whenever I see someone wearing too much makeup... I feel sad, because I know it's all just to hide their own self-loathe.
Oh, and a general rule. No girl EVER looks better with eye liner and eye shadow if she wasn't ridiculously pretty in the first place. True fact. It can either "look just as good as before" or "ruin the look". It cannot make it better. I have never seen anyone who looked better with makeup than without.
I think a lot of people HIDE behind makeup, trying to cover up what they're unhappy with, rather than trying to enhance their natural beauty. With the T. Swift examples, I'll still maintain she looks best without makeup, if any then the natural look, but never the obvious...I mean...come on, who's she got to impress?
The thing is, when you love someone, when you truly love someone, they look different. Their beauty is enhanced more than makeup could ever provide. Makeup becomes obsolete. When I wake up next to someone I want to be able to recognize that person as the individual I love, not one who feels a need to hide behind some manufactured sticks. Besides, less is more.
I don't give a hoot when the pictures are all different. Show me a series all in one day from no makeup up to full battle armor LOL
heres the thing. when I wake up in the morning, and roll over for a hug and a kiss...there is no makeup. give me natural beauty any day, but remember...part of that beauty comes from inside, and has nothing to do with what you see in a picture.
