i know guys hate makeup, but what if she only does eyes, like some black eyeliner and eyeshadow?
is it a turnoff?
thanks or wonderful answers! but I think a lot of you men answered that less is more, which is correct, and a lot of you even prefer no makeup, which is okay I guess...
but I think many men don't understand what eye makeup is, its purpose is not to cover anything up, it goes on eyelids but rather to add new colors to go with an outfit..only face makeup covers stuff up,
It's fine if you use makeup, just don't slather it on. I think the thing you should realize is that, while makeup may make you feel more confident in your looks and can help to hide blemishes or whatever, you look great without makeup. Personally I like girls who don't really wear makeup, but the fact that they wear makeup doesn't change my opinion on them.
I guess my advice is this: less is more. Seriously. It's totally fine to wear makeup, but if you put on even a little bit too much it can start to make you look like a slut, and nobody wants that.
I like a girl with either no makeup or a light touch if she is going out. I see girls that got soo makeup on I "can't see her face"
just as a side note I hate girls who get the tips of there nails done and leave the rest of it blank. Like WTF you too lazy to fish it or are you abrade to get nail polish on your fingers? If you do your nails do the WHOLE fingernail not just the top half of it. Please!...
as for makeup eyeliner is ok if you use ONE color. Not multi color eyeliner. Use a single color that doesn't stand out too much and just do a light touch.
I like mast lipstick on a girl but there is this one red color that is soo bright and thick looking it makes you stare at her lips and are like OMG what was she thinking (maybe it's a way to get guys to stop looking at her boobs?) just a subtle color or not soo thick would be nice to show off your lips without making them the main focus point.
so to sum up all the good and bad, useing more than 1 color for eyeliner (vertical any way) and thick bright red/pink lipstick with just the tips of your fingernails done make you look lazy,slutty,trampish and just plain trying too hard.
a light single eyeliner color, a small touch of lipstick that doesn't make your lips stand out and if you want to paint your nails (any color that's nice) do them from finger to the tip. You look sophisticated,cute,easy on the eyes and approachable.
mascara I think like the stuff that makes your eyelashes look bigger and the make up stuff that conceals the bloches on the skin and nothing else. Especially not that eye shadow stuff makes you look like a slut (which is not a good thing also makes you look desperate).
well what I think it looks good on a girl is for her only putting makeup once in a while and not every day. for example if a girl goes to school she shouldn't have makeup (in my opinion) but if she's going out (especially on a date) to bars disco or just a dinner or to the movies.. she should put a little makeup yes to look sexier... but too much on anything is bad.
I believe that they like whatever looks more natural, but still pretty of course.
Like some girls would benefit with some make-up while others don't need much, if any, but a black ring around the eyes, way too long eyelashes, and too much unnatural color on the face including the lips just isn't attractive on any girl.
I personally love makeup...I think it's great! Wear it if you like it :) Just don't go overboard..I guess I can go a little overboard but it's weird cause that's when I get the most compliments? oh well..idk
Seriously why would you be bothered? Jesus! Look how you want to look-if you want to wear eye make-up then wear it! Are you that insecure that you need guys approval? And people won't like what I'm saying but I don't care. It's so frustrating seeing questions like this-do guys like this, will guys like that. I was like that in the past and then I realise why should anyone give a f**k what guys think?! Especially, with something as trivial as eye make-up.
When I see a girl with loads of makeup on my impression is that either they are trying hard to seek attention or they have low self esteem and think that makes them look good and hence more liked...that's just the impression I get.
My boyfriend thinks I look worse the more makeup I pile on, and that I look best with minimalist makeup, ie. light smokey eyeliner, curled eyelashes and some blushes, sometimes a bit of concealer if skin looks especially bad on a certain day. He thinks I look best natural, and he isn't fooled by women who pile on makeup like there's no tomorrow, guys have a pretty good idea of what you look like without the makeup anyways. Even if not, it's quite a turnoff to not know what a face looks like don't you think?
When it comes down to it, extreme fashion and makeup really are about competing with other girls.
