Lately I've been loving looks with heavier eye makeup and nude lips. Assuming all of these eye makeup looks come with no lip makeup or a light pink/peach/beige lip, what do you prefer for every day, date night, etc.?
I had some guys tell me they liked me better with no makeup before, but when I didn't wear makeup for one guy he admitted he wanted me to look that way to be "less intimidating." It gets me upset when guys scrutinize my makeup choice with a "I'd like to see your natural beauty" then tell me they wanted me to look worse on purpose to make them feel less small. -.-
So, I want honest opinions!
Here are the choices with example links:
There's natural (just mascara and maybe a nude eyeshadow, especially for ladies with light lashes that need to be colored): link
"Natural" eyeliner (super thin lines at the lash line, can be with or without a light nude eyeshadow) link
Smoky (dark eyeshadow in different shades around the eye) :
As a general rule for me, the least amount of makeup a woman wears the better so I will pick natural any day. I want to touch a womans face, kiss her and not come away with a whole bunch of makeup on me haha. Cat eyes are extremely unnatractive to me, can't stand them. HOWEVER, makeup has it's occasions; while I'm an avid supporter for natural, smokey eyes for example could be better suited for a specific occasion. And I'm a sucker for the whole rocker girl look but they usually wear heavy eye shadow. Of the description of your yourself that you have provided, I think natural would suit you best :)
I'm honestly curious as to what women look like - (where I live I simply feel like there's men, and then there's just walking make up coated things...) It's frankly creepy... maybe I don't want to know. I feel that ladies should at least go two days without any make up.
You should worry less about what others think and focus more on what you like.
At the end of the day guys don't give a f*** what eye shadow you're wearing. As long as you own it that's what we care about. We like a woman with confidence who isn't afraid to wear the wrong shade of eye shadow.
Depends where you're at.
If you're clubbin go for the dark smokey.
If its day to day business go for the light smokey with nude lipstick.
I mean, I wear all those looks from time to time, and generally get compliments on it; I think it's just about wearing something suitable; and done well. Like a very dark smokey eye, I'd probably only wear out clubbing or something similar; and my day to day look being something more like the 'hybrid' link you posted.
Most guys like make-up that looks good. They don't tend to care what the look is, as long as it's done well and suits the wearer - nothing too out there and embarrassing. So just go with a look you like.
I think just little makeup is enough as it help emphasis our features. I only put the natural eye liner on and I love it because it makes my eyes stand out very much, but at the same time, it's not too much so the emphasis stays on my eyes rather than the make up.
brunettes can get away with smoky eyes and eyeshadow colors it really makes the brown eyes and brown hair pop!
but for blondes or redheads natural is best, cause they already have striking blue/green eyes with contrasting hair, so if they were to add more color or drama it would be too much
overall, I think guys like eye makeup, at least from my experience I've never gotten complaints only compliments, however the one thing guys hate is foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush and face stuff that's when you become a mask and are un-natural. but eye makeup is okay and its all about art and fun, its not covering your identity...
I'm more of a natural to hybrid kind of person. Typically natural though. I've never been crazy about wearing a lot of eye/lip makeup.
