I read an article that in a study of 100 men and 100 women what men considered natural was actually what most women consider medium makeup. It showed pictures I wish I could remember the link. It was basically mascara, eyeliner on the top lash, lip liner with lip moisturizer, tinted moisturizer, concealer, and blush.
Most women could throw that together and make it look fairly natural, using only a little of each.
men considered wearing makeup to be fake eyelashes, lipstick, eyeshadow, foundation, the works and women considered it heavy makeup.
basically if you wear makeup right, a guy won't notice it, and that's what they want.

In theory, guys would like girls who look that hot naturally. That's better, right?
So guys say 'I don't like makeup'. They are thinking 'I'd like a girl who is naturally a '10' over a girl who is artificially (and temporarily) a '10'.
But as a girl, that doesn't matter. The question is, 'do I want to be a 7 without makeup or a 9 with (or whatever, you get the idea).
Where a little makeup, put it on right.
Girls are just as bad by the way. They like guys who don't spend too much time in the gym, but if they just naturally have a perfect body, that would be great.
Less is more.
And when it comes to make up, too many girls think more is better.
I think it's necessary for guys to say they HATE makeup, because then a girl will still put make up on, but she won't use a shovel.
I don't like women who have to wear make up often; I feel like she relies too much on others' approval. Only for special occasions is it okay.
I don't hate. It's nice to enhance ur natural beauty once in awhile
Every time I kiss a woman with a ton of makeup, tastes terrible! YUCK! Makeup makes a woman look like she's on the warpath to battle. It hides her true looks and most women just have no idea how much is good enough. When it comes to makeup, less is better. Unfortunately, we men cannot control how much a woman puts on her face so often we have to overlook that and try to interact with women anyway. Men are normally not so shallow about it, makeup can be taken off.
I don't hate makeup. I truly think that makeup is there to enhance a woman's look. Makeup actually does wonders on some women (just as like wearing the right style of clothesfor a man or woman), but I personally prefer no make up at times.
Tastefully done make up makes girls very attractive.
When guys say they hate make up, they are talking about too much make up.
Good make up should enhance beauty and should not scream too loud.
i have a black suit in the cleaners right now just from where a girl hugged me and my shoulder has makeup all over it. I got a grey suit that needs to go before I wear it again for the same reason. it gets on my shirt and all over when we hug or cuddle. and when I lick your face in the club like rick james, it taste horrible!
I prefer it when girls wear little to no make-up. But all guys are different. Don't make generalizations that everyone's the same.
I have hated makeup since before I could talk. I have MCS and that alone is a really hard thing to talk about face to face. To explain this with as few words as possible : I simply am disgusted by perfumes lotions sprays and all makeup, to the point of puking.
This has made my life a lonely one for most of my life. That plus that I'm super shy and low self esteem. The fact that women seem to "can't live without makeup / perfume" and the ridicule that comes if I try to explain MCS and me, basically made me believe that I'll never have love. Its sad that society accepts homosexuality in public display but laugh at a guy who says he can't stand makeup and perfume. The smell alone will get me to leave a room or a seating in a restaurant.
Simply put: society brainwashes girls at little age to believe that you HAVE TO look like this and use that and smell like this, in order yo attract the male sex or just to fit in the society.
Hate make up any girl looks better without it
Because it makes you look disgusting.
because after a one night stand you look very different in the morning
MY hat is off to you Question Asker...when you started this I felt animosity towards u...but you have changed my mind..i think you picked the best answer..and I feel like you asked me and THEN you listened! Have gained my respect! You have a Friend here...
Best Answer in one hour? This is a joke...I don't say one thing and do another and I resent the hell out of being accused of it. Also I never said that I wouldn't accept ANY makeup...I think that mascara looks nice..don't mind eyeliner...can even tolerate eyeshadow...I don't mind lipstick...but just let me rail about foundation and/or bronzer or whatever else you use a trowel to smear all over your face and I get all kinds of stupid sh** for response:
1) I don't know what I am talking about
2) we wear it all the time and you don't even know
3) You think you don't want us too wear it but you really do
4) if we don't wear it you won't hit on us
5) I don't wear it for u..I wear it for me
6) I feel naked with out it
7) all the other girls wear it
8) it's good for my skin
That stupid crap you smear all over your face should be totally banned: obnoxious, environmentally unsound, hazardous to our health, public eyesore, waste of resources, waste of time, waste of
money, and makes me want to throw up
Not all guys are the same. I know what natural and 'natural makeup' look like.
Ever heard of the term "painted ladies?" Prostitutes used to wear makeup, and it was associated with them for a long time.
Makeup is a sign of low self-esteem.
I was with my ex for two years, and in that time she wore makeup 3 times. Yes, I know this. Yes, I thought she was gorgeous.
What Girls Said 5
the thing is men can't tell whether it is natural makeup or natural face (bare face), if they can tell it means the girl has put on a lot of make up which isn't good.
as a lady, i don't like make up too and never understand why many would want to spend so much money on it? minimal is fine but too much is really unnecessary
Guys don't hate make-up, it's just politically correct to encourage the "natural" state rather than being "fake."
Most men have no clue what a chick without make-up looks like
they have unrealistic standards of women. they think you should wake up looking gorgeous and think you're "fake" for having to apply beauty aids to reach the standard of beauty that will attract men to you. basically ignore guys' opinions on makeup because they don't know what they're talking about anyway. they will see a girl with natural makeup on and think she has no makeup on. they'll say they hate too much makeup but ogle a girl with a face full of it. makes a lot of sense, huh? yeah so just ignore them and do what makes you look good.
