She doesn't wear make-up

So I've been dating this girl, everything is fine, but she doesen't wear any make up, yeah I know everyone says that they like it "natural" but to be honest everyone wants theyr girl to wear make up. So how do I tell her that I want her to start wearing some make up and not look like a jerk. She says that she doesen't have enough but she does, I' just an excuse.

Updates:
You kinda don't get me and you just mega trolled me. I like that girl, I'm dating her for like two months and I'm picky as hell, I like her personality and we connected. I'm just saying that a little make up won't hurth her, I'm not asking that she has to put make up like she's going to a fashion show, I'm just asking for her to put on some powder and lipgloss, it's the equivalent of me shaving and puting some body spray.

  • Makeup is a hassel, and really hard to do if you don't know how to put it on. I know that I look pretty goofy and awful with make up on because I have no idea how to apply it. It also takes up a good amount of time. I just don't care that much. I throw some concealer on in the morning, to hide blemishes and such but apart from that nawh man.

    Think of it this way, if someone asked you to spend a bare minimum ten minutes (provided you don't know what to do or aren't perfect and mess up and have to fix mistakes) or upwards of twenty to coat your face in stuff that can feel weird and doesn't make you happy, how would you feel? Then the rest of the day you have to be careful not to smudge it. When I wear makeup I always end up smudging my eye shadow everywhere.

    And, honestly, I've known more guys who hate their girlfriends wearing make up than prefer it. My boyfriend likes when I put it on but for the most part he doesn't notice or really care. Also, it's really expensive. One color of good, quality eye shadow can cost five dollars, and that's just one part of many that you need to look good. To get the cheapest of everything you need to be fully made up can easily cost you 30 dollars. That's a good deal of money for something she doesn't even want. And these things can run out fairly quickly if you use them every day, so no, she probably doesn't have enough. Who are you to demand she does?

    If you want her to wear make up so badly then you buy it for her. Go with her and she'll pick some things out and you can buy them for her. She doesn't want them she doesn't have to buy them, she can just go date some one who finds her perfectly beautiful and amazing regardless of whether or not she paints up her face. If she wanted you to wear a certain cologne she would go buy that for you, because she has no right to demand you wear it and then expect you to go buy it. So go get the make up for her.

    You're asking her to spend time and money and effort on something she doesn't care about, while in the process making yourself appear very superficial. Why does it matter if she wears make up every day? Are you trying to show her off? Is she not beautiful enough? Or is it just you want her to wear it when the two of you are going to hang out? Which isn't at bad but it still leaves the feeling that you think she's not beautiful.

    Honestly there's no good way to ask that question so you'll have to try and just bite the bullet and hope it ends up okay.

    • I concur

      It's a hard thing to start and there isn't really a nice way to say "you look better with makeup up."

  • how do you know she doesn't already wear some makeup, for all you know she could be wearing mascara and concealer or whatever else. there's no way to do it and not come across as a douche so just do it and she'll know at least who she's dating. honesty is key.

  • No, guys on here do not want their girl to wear makeup. They hate foundation, eyeliner, mascara, blush, bronzer, powder, lipstick, lipgloss and even lip balm. They like 100% natural.

    Wait, but, you're under 18, so you're apart of my generation. Nevermind, guys don't give a f*** about makeup. How I know? I'm an 18 year old girl ONLY interested in guys around my age

    If you started going out with her when she didn't wear makeup, it shouldn't be a problem now.

    I'm not sure why people enter into relationships trying to change the other person.

    If makeup is that big of a deal(like it is to every guy on girlsaskguys), then break up with her.

  • Why would you even want her to wear make up , yeah most girls do but in time it ruins the skin like me I wear make up I'm 19 and I'm trying to avoid wearing make up as much as I can because I know it will take its toll in time on my skin, love her for her that's how you met her so you should be happy and maybe in time she might wear make up. If you start telling her to wear make up she might take offence and think your saying she's ugly and you will find most girls that wear a lot of makeup are not very pretty without it so you should be happy with your girl obviously you think she's pretty with no make up so just be proud that she doesn't need it :)

  • Try telling her you think she would look pretty with some eye shadow or blush or mascara say you think it will enhance her beauty but be careful to not make her think that that's the i=only wy she will look pretty. also you should be happy that she doesn't because most girls not all who wear it only wear cause they are insecure and the only feel pretty when they wear makeup. you should be happy your girlis confident hope this helped:)

  • Not possible.

    It's her body.

    No, not everyone likes their girl to wear makeup .

    Find a girl who does if it's that important to you.

    Those girls labeled as natural by males are actualy wearing concealer and nude lipstick : they're just good at applying makeup.

    The girls who wear makeup to the point that everyone can tell often have other habits that make up what other girls and stable guys label as slutty/tacky/low class.

    The equivalent to you shaving and wearing body spray is : her shaving/waxing (trust me, girls have facial hair too) and wearing body spray.

    Try applying makeup to yourself one day. That would be equivalent. Changing it if she didn't like it would be equivalent.

  • You can't really tell her that without looking like a jerk. I rarely ever wear make-up so if I had been dating someone for 2 months and then he said he wanted me to wear make-up I would be pissed and would probably consider breaking up with him.

  • Who do you think you are to start dating a girl, and then ask her to change her appearance as if she isn't good enough for you the way she is? If makeup is so important to you, why wouldn't you date a girl who did wear makeup? You knew she didn't wear makeup when you met her so what's the problem? If you're so picky why did you bother to start dating a girl who's looks your unimpressed by JUST because of her personality. I'm sure if we surveyed a panel of girls they might say that your looks aren't up to par yourself, clearly not because if a guy can get any girl he wants he sure wouldn't pick one that he feels needs to be changed. AKA this was the best girl you could get, yet she's still not good enough. Says something about you and the quality of girls you can pull. Why take that out on her?

  • Clearly you haven't grown up into the real world yet.

    If you aren't into girls who don't wear make-up, which is shallow I might add, then why date a girl like that? She shouldn't change her ways for you. If she doesn't want to wear make-up, she shouldn't.

    Find some other girl who cakes it on.

    • Wearing makeup =/=caking it on

      And no, I don't wear makeup. But, let's not act biased towards makeup

    • lol, I'm not being biased towards makeup, I wear it sometimes & I do not cake it on.

      Just getting my point across. ;)

  • there won't be a "good" way to tell her that kind of thing

    telling her to wear makeup is like saying "you're ugly"

    lol it's better if you just learn to live with it, or

    you might not have a girlfriend anymore.

    but the best way to tell her might be to buy

    her some makeup lol (what you want her to wear)

    and somehow combine it with a compliment if you can..

  • I'd be thrilled if I had a girl that didn't wear any. I don't like the way it smells. You Don't speak for me.

  • Try asking her to a dance or something and maybe suggest putting on some makeup. Don't tell her to change or anything, just say that you wanna see her all dressed up and crazy, just for a change of pace. Telling her to wear make up every day might not work, but maybe try it every once in awhile, and if she doesn't like it, ah well.
