Why do some guys say they prefer girls without make-up when they don’t even notice the girls that don’t wear any?
They like going for the hot, pretty ones when behind under all that make-up is just one of those girls that they don’t even mind looking at.
How do guys even know if girls aren't wearing make-up? Guys may think a girl isn't wearing make-up because it looks natural, but how do you know she's not one of those who you wouldn't even take a second glance at if she didn't have any?
I'm not trying to make it a big deal...I'm just really curious about it.
Guys do like girls that wear no makeup. However, there's a certain issue that goes along with it.
Girls who wear makeup are doing so to make themselves physically look better (at least, they think). Typically, girls who put that kind of effort into their looks also put in effort where it matters, like wearing clothes that fit well, proper diet and exercise, taking care of their skin, etc. Those things make her look good. Many girls who don't wear makeup (regularly) also don't take care of other things. Loose shirts and sweats, overweight, and bad skin are all not appealing to most.
However, if you get a girl who takes care of herself without wearing makeup, then she's golden. Girls like that get hit on all the time, assuming everything else about them is fine.
I actually do prefer when girls don't wear make up. None at all. My girl never wears it, and I was actually unsure whether or not she wore it for quite a long time. I couldn't tell the difference! I think my main issue is when girls take ridiculously long to get ready due to their make up obsession, or they use too much and look fake. A bit is okay, but I'm perfectly happy to see girls wearing none at all.
The ones that hide some skin flaws like foundation and are completely non-visible are neat. No problem with that.
However... I personally dislike anything that messes with the eyes. The eye conveys emotional states and creates the vibe of the person. Now if you artifically mess with that, it will just feel wrong in about 98% of the time.
So most people don't look better with makeup. Even if they feel like it.
And my axiom is: "only those look attractive with makeup who were exceptionally attractive without it".
By the way, they are approached because they seem more available.
And also the other reason below that said because it's a sign that they "take care of themselves".
It's not so much that guys prefer girls without make-up. The problem is that some (many?) girls overdo it to the point where they start looking rather fake or just plain silly. Make-up is okay as long as its presence is not (trivially) noticeable.
Well really now , I am one of the guys that say that prefer girls without makeup , its not that I don't like it , but being not perfect does not bother me for a girl , you are really making a big deal out of it , the way you talk about it , is like we tend to like good looking girls that without makeup look like beasts . :)
Most guys who say this mean they like girls who don't look like they're wearing make-up i.e they wear natural looking make-up, enough to get rid of any dramatic flaws, and enhance the good things about them - without being over the top.
A girl with loads of make-up on can come across to most as high maintenance.
A girl with absolutely no make up on can come across as a girl not caring about her appearance.
Strike a happy medium between the two and that's most guys' real preference.
this is something I've learned on this site. Guys like girls who look pretty. They don't like girls who look super plain and they don't like girls who look like a made up whore. Sometimes I don't think guys even realize that some girls are wearing some make up (light shadow/mascara/alittle blush and some light lipstick) they want a girl who looks "natural" that's what they mean by "no make up"...that doesn't mean that if a girl is all done up that they won't look at her or find her body attractive to look at but if you're talking girlfriend material they don't want someone who looks like like a stage performer they want a 'real' girl and real girls yes wear makeup but not overdone so the guys think it looks natural on her. thus they like "no makeup"
