Ive seen some beautiful and pretty women but I wouldn't consider them "hot". Even the victoria secret models look great with makeup but without its a different story. for example
adriana lima without makeup:
now her with makeup:
and allessandra ambrosio without makeup
and her with makeup
is makeup really the key to making a woman "hot" when they are truly average?

Let's define a few words to start with.
"Hot" means "pretty/beautiful, but in an overtly sexual way." It is usually as much or more about body shape and "assets" as it is about face, and there is even a component of how a girl carries herself and even how she dresses.
Most women are average, and maybe 10% are "hot" no matter what. Some girls can be hot with no makeup and dressed in a burlap sack. But there's another big percentage of girls who can, with the right clothes, make-up, and attitude, become hot. It's all about how they accentuate the features they've got, and being willing to sexualize those features to some degree.
And, yes, there is a BIG difference between how women look WITH hair and makeup done (especially a $5000 professional job) and without. Most models and actresses don't look like models or actresses at all when they are in normal street clothes without hair and makeup, because we are so used to seeing them all done up.7
