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?
Taylor Swift for example:
with obvious makeup: link link
with natural makeup: link link
with no makeup at all: link link
Which do you think she looks best in?
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?

Argh. She's gorgeous.
So I don't think she's that good an example lol.
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.
That's my opinion. :)2
