How do you tell if a girl is wearing makeup?

Besides her wearing lipstick and eye shadow how can a guy tell if she has it on her face also?

  • Obvious stuff like a fake shimmer or really dark lashes. Very plump lips. Careful penciling around the eyes, eyebrows or lips.

    "Cover-up" -- Nobody has perfectly even skin on their faces. If you see a girl with perfectly even-toned skin, she usually has some sort of foundation/"base" on to diminish shine and hide uneven skin tone to give that silky smooth effect.

    It's part of the "natural look" -- that look that gets guys to make a girl look more approachable, less "high-maintenance".

    I hate make-up as a rule and yet a little mascara to make the blond lashes visible and a touch of "natural" gloss before a party or get together to make my pouty mouth "pop". The guys don't seem to mind and never complain, haha.

  • Look at her neck and if there are two different shades. Not to sound rude but if there skin looks too perfect then they probably have some on. By too perfect like literally not a single flawed mark. Also their face will look kind of powdery. If its extra bronze then probably.

  • If her face looks too greasy, kind of like cake frosting as they call it.

    If her face doesn't match her neck or chest.

    If her face is too powdered, or she puts too much makeup on that you can visibly tell in close range.

    If she looks like a clown basically. If a girl is really good at applying makeup, it should be barely detectable.

  • IF she's got perfect skin, and she's not Asian, she's almost certainly wearing a layer of makeup. In bright light you can see it clearly if you are close up!

  • You can generally see the powder or the difference between the color of her face and her arms
