Do women recognize a "fresh face" (no makeup at all) when they see one?

We all know that guys have trouble distinguishing if a woman has makeup on, but what about women?

Do you think women can (consistently) tell when another woman (or a man) is wearing makeup? Or do you think they sometimes mistake minimal makeup for being completely bare?

(We're talking pictures, magazines, real life, everywhere)

  • Funny, in comparison to the other answers I can't agree. I usually can't tell... girls can do a lot of things that may look natural. Some subtle lip gloss, a bit of undercover mascara, concealer under the eyes, eyebrow filling etc. You just really never know these days imo.

  • I can recognize them, so I imagine a woman can too.

  • I'm a guy and I usually know so I am sure most women know too unless they are naive with make-up, lived in a cave or have bad eyesight.

  • I do. I can tell if someone has too flawless of a complexion for them not to be wearing makeup lol

  • I can usually tell. I don't focus on it or anything, but sometimes I'll see a pretty woman and notice she doesn't have makeup on and I'll wish my face looked that great, haha!
