Well,its hard to answer this because some people idea of too much makeup is a girl wearing eyeliner,and other peoples idea is someone wearing enough makeup to be in a circus.I would need you to give examples of what exactly she is wearing.
Secondly,i highly doubt she suddenly started wearing all of this supposed makeup.I bet she had on the same amount when you became attracted to her.Its her style,and I wouldn't suggest trying to change it.However,maybe you can say that you think she is beautiful with out makeup too.BUT it's probable she feels good with what she is wearing,and may be hard pressed to change.If it REALLY bothers you,then you may consider just being friends with her as opposed to trying to date her.
I don't think it's shallow at all. I have an aversion to makeup myself, so I can empathize completely. Too much makeup bothers me and grosses me out, and I don't even have to KISS the girls who bother me - so I can see why you're upset. You might want to tell her you like her more natural, but you have to handle it VERY delicately. Very.
For example, maybe as she is getting ready for a date, you come up to her before she slaps it all on and say, "Leave yourself like that. I love when you look like you. You are such a naturally beautiful woman." But this is all very, very delicate.
Well... Honestly... lol in my opinion it shouldn't bother you... why should it? I mean if you liked her.. that would be the LEAST worry on your mind...
lol But than again I guess every person is different.. if I were dating a guy I would like him to apprecaite ALL of me... but I guess to each his own...
If you do have a problem with it, you should tell her in a kind way. She may be a teensy bit hurt or she may not be sensitive at all.. Just say "Hun, I think your pretty without make up or less of it." You could try explaining this to her.. If she CAKES it on her face maybe this could help her in the long run try telling her that
maybe she's insecure... or maybe its an overdone passion of hers I don't know.. just try telling her nicely .. but if its for insecurity reasons.. remind her everyday that she's beautiful but if she wants to keep the make up just accept her for who she is lol
Hhmm. Well you can't really change her. But you could pay special attention to when she wears less makeup or mention the pictures. You look so pretty here, you're a natural beauty, you don't need all that makeup, etc. If you have any influence on her, she should appreciate it. Whether she'll wear less is unknown.
I don't think its shallow. I find a lot of people wear too much makeup. My ex's teeth weren't great, but it didn't stop me from being with him.
It depends on what you mean by too much. If you mean it's obvious, then you'll need to politely hint to her that you think she looks better with less makeup. Have you ever seen her with less makeup? Cause you could be like "remember that time (fill in the blank), I thought you looked really good/like the way you did your makeup"
If by too much makeup you're just being a typical girlsaskguys bitch about makeup: NEWSFLASH, "natural" normally means natural looking makeup. Just cause it looks natural doesn't mean it actually is. Most girls wear some amount of makeup and if it wasn't a problem for you when you approached her then it shouldn't be a problem now.
I think some of the other ladies have the right idea about talking about how pretty she looks without it when she's not wearing it, really admiring her face when it's bare and when she talks up how pretty she looks with make up tell her she doesn't need it (dont go OVERBOARD with it, we aren't stupid and we'll feel you pushing the issue) but girls that wear A LOT of make up? it becomes kind of a safety blanket for them and if you try to force the issue they'll feel defensive like you're trying to take it away from them.
it's hard because girls feel more confident with certain amounts of makeup on. it's hard to "grow out of" it and it often takes steps.
it is natural but it is a very hard message to convey to girls because I know that without my makeup on I feel less confident even if other people like different kinds or no makeup. I used to wear way too much but over time I started to realize I look better with less and now my amount is good, and people say I look natural.
The only way males will ever change this horsesh*t will be to continue to vocalize until our voices are louder than those of damnable media, peer pressure from other females and the Marketing Depts of all of the A$$hole Cosmetic Corporations...a formidable challenge...but it is possible..(:
