Why do guys hate makeup?
Why do guys claim that they hate makeup, and wish girls looked beautiful naturally.. or make girls feel bad for wearing it but are totally attracted to girls who do wear makeup? Obviously it works because you fall for it. I've never known a girl who has gotten hit on while wearing no makeup (and don't say it's a confidence thing), but be honest, guys prefer makeup. Of course every girl wishes she looked pretty without makeup (I think I do) but guys treat me so much better in public and in my group of friends when I have more makeup on than when I don't.
I understand thinking a bunch of makeup melting off your face is disgusting, and looking like a p*rn star or completely different person is obviously not what I mean, but don't say you like girls who are natural and then go hitting on girls, who from a girl's perspective, are wearing a pretty considerable amount of makeup.

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.

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!
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.
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.
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
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.

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.
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
