This guy told me that when a girl is putting on fancy makeup, he thinks that "dark eyes" are really sexy but lipstick and blush and bright color makeup and that crap is "nasty". Since he didn't know how to describe makeup, it turns out he really means dark smokey eyes using a lot of black tones, but no bright lip color or obvious blush. (I personally think that eye look is a bit heavy for my taste, even if I am getting really glam)
So, is this true? In Cosmo, the poll results were kind of similar when they asked guys which look they liked best-they tended to like the smokey eyes, but nude lips and subtle cheeks.

NOT TO ME! I don't get that AT ALL! The dark smokey tones can be cool ON THE RIGHT PERSON, but I like the brighter pastels. I mean, I'm fine with any girl wearing as much or as little of whatever makeup she's comfortable with becasue I want her to be herself, but here's the best example I can cite of great makeup job... My friend's wife is tall with long black hair & Eyes, and naturally tanned skin, & looks a lot like Catherine Zeta Jones except for her eye shape. We went to a concert, & she had a dressy caual baby doll style (fitted just below the boobs, then coming down flowy) dress on, & it had like red or pink in it & the PRETTIEST pastel sky blue! She did her normal base from what I could tell, did some pink on the cheeks that matched the dress, & did her eye shadow in that SAME sky blue! It wasn't heavy... The make up was subtle & tastefully done, & I've seen this girl look like a model in a wrap around robe, but something about that blue over her eyes when I sat across from her, OMG I couldn't take my eyes off of her! I spent the night there, & I was SOOOO sad to see that dress in the laundry the next day. LOL I hoped she'd do it agaiin for church ...0
