Considering the fact that only whores pack on their makeup for attention, does makeup (even a light coverage) usually make a girl look prettier from a guys perspective. And, in regards to my previous statement, do guys find girls with packed on makeup hot/sexy/older/experienced?
I'm still in high school so the current trends seem to swap and change constantly, although there is a major debate between us girls on the topic of makeup.
Well, since your in high school I would say most guys don't have a preferance. They are immature still which will be the case for most guys all their life because guys in general, aren't classy. I'm not trying to bash us guys but its the truth. There are only a small percentage of guys who have class (imyself being classy) and look for women who have true natural beauty. We wan a girl to look just as gorgous when they go out at night as when they wake up in the morning. I do not want a girl loading on the makeup and looking completely different without the makeup. So my advise, do not load it on! Classy good guys like very natural looking women who dress and look classy. THAT IS SEXY!
My opinion on the this topic (as this debate comes up often with girls around me as well) is that less is more. I know plenty of guys who love makeup, and plenty who absolutely hate it. As for looking like you don't care about your appearance, I'm a great example of disproving the "girls who don't wear a lot of makeup come off as 'they let themselves go'" theory. I sometimes wear makeup, but majority of the time do not. When I do, it's barely noticeable eyeliner and sometimes mascara. However, whether I wear makeup or not I am almost always well dressed and find the attention of guys regardless. It's whatever floats your own boat, just make sure you don't look like you put makeup on with a putty knife and maybe balance the makeup according to the outfit so you don't look like you don't care.
