  • 'light' is nice for everyday. just enhance what is there and minimize 'blemishes'.

    sometimes going a little more out there with colors and layers is great. I really like when girls do their eyes with something kinda dramatic. cat eyes, designs, bright colors and long lashes are hot for special events.

    these are a good idea of what is hot.

    no makeup at all is not something I really like

  • A little is ideal. We know girls want to look good and if I get to know her well enough I'll see her without makeup anyway. Overdoing it is a problem. First off, I want to know the real her, not a fake her. Secondly, the heavy makeup girls are the types to do nothing but put on makeup all day, maybe walk about for a few minutes, then go to the bathroom to fix up the makeup and eventually the day is over.

  • I chose other, I think a lot of makeup is disgusting, I hate it. In terms of no makeup or just a little it does not matter. I personally prefer no makeup but if a girl feels more beautiful with a little then she is, otherwise having none could make her feel embarrassed about all the imperfections she thinks she has. In short, the beauty of makeup is not in the product itself but in the confidence it gives.

    • By the way this does not include formal events, putting a lot on for some formal gala or dance is great if done correctly, but again it is all about how beautiful the wearer feels.

  • I like light if anything.. I don't like when a girl has a makeup face and she looks like a completely different person without it. It kind of creeps me out a bit.. haha

  • I think too many women don't have a clue on how to apply makeup correctly. It's either way too much or the use of the materials doesn't look good. Some example would be odd colors that conflicts with the skin color or the entire Goth look. I don't like the warpaint when there's no battle to fight in. Even the heavy amount like is light compared to what I normally see.

  • Little to no makeup! I hate copious amounts on makeup on women, it's disgusting. I want to touch a girls face, kiss her and not come away with a face full of makeup on me! That first womans makeup ls so much sexier. Sadly, many women overuse makeup these days when they don't need it.

  • I have been working in aquatics for the past 10 years or so. And girls would be instructing in the water, they do not wear makeup because it would just run off their face when it gets wet. Girls don't need makeup. Trust me, it may make hem look a little bit better, but it is not needed, I was still attracted to the girls when hey didn't wear makeup, actually when they put makeup on you could twel sometimes that they looked a little weirs, like somebody did something to their eyebrows or pulled back their face or I saw them that day and their face looks like it got a tan. Trust me its not needed

    The second link is downright disgusting. That's a thing not a human. I wouldn't even want to be in the same room with it.

  • Since there is no "moderate" option, I voted C.

    A well done makeup job with a moderate amount of makeup will make any female look better (if done correctly).

    I like the look of the female with the heavier makeup example picture. :)

  • I voted a little make up. I like to be able to recognize you with and without your makeup. I knew a girl in high school who wore TONS, I'd see her at school with her makeup on. But I still remember the times I saw her without, she looked like a completely different person, I could hardly recognize her. I swear she must have been a shape shifter or something...

  • When a guy is attracted to a girl, they don't seem to notice how much makeup the woman is wearing. Typically the only time a guy does notice a woman wearing a lot of makeup is when the woman did a bad job putting it on. That is why so many guys say they prefer a woman with no makeup or with just a little, and then run straight toward the woman with a lot of makeup. It just depends on how the girl looks with the makeup on.

  • I like the first link, I'm not a huge fan of make up because it can make your skin break out bad if you put it on as heavy as the second link. If I absolutely HAD to wear makeup I would choose the first link but if it was for Halloween I wouldn't mind putting it on as heavy as the girl in the second link

  • I personally use very little (less than your "light amount" picture). Just some mascara, concealer, and lipgloss and you're good to go. Moderate for going out, but I always find the natural look more appealing even if it is heavy makeup being worn. For example she's wearing a great deal of make up link but it still looks somewhat natural.

  • It depends on the girl who's wearing the makeup. Personally, I don't like putting on heavy makeup. It makes me look too different, like I can't even recognize myself. I only go with mascara and foundation where needed. I don't even have time to spend more than 2 minutes on my makeup anyway, haha.

  • Guys like a little bit of make-up, even if they don't realize it. Every woman has flaws, let's not kid ourselves. And the most attractive you'll look is when you slightly cover up your flaws and enhance your pretty features. So one coat of foundation and mascara is enough and eye shadows should not be layered on unless you're going clubbing.

    • Save the heavy make-up for special occasions, so you can still surprise him with it.

  • light makeup for everyday wear. I only accentuate my eyebrows, brown eyeshadow and white around the inner corners, eyeliner, concealer, mascara, and blush. Depending on the occasion and my mood, I sometimes use navy blue eyeliner because I think it brings out my brown eyes more than black eyeliner does. When going out with friends I just wear darker shades of eyeshadow.

  • The light look is what I wear maybe even a little more than what I wear. I do foundation and blush, eyeliner and mascara. I add Chapstick if my lips are being crappy that day. I don't bother with eyeshadow or highlighting and contouring and lip stuff.

  • I think the biggest mistake people make is using too much eyeliner. It just tends to look trashy the more you put on. Sometimes you can use a lot if you know what you're doing and you know what other things must be done to dress up the eye for a more dramatic evening look. But most of the time too much is used.

    Save doing really heavy eyeliner for the experienced makeup artists.

  • I don't wear make up daily, but when I do I only wear eyeliner, mascara, and lipgloss. I think heavy amount of make up like the second link makes a woman looks 'fake'. And I don't know why but I find most women who wears that kind of make up are either sluts or attention seeker.

    Dressing up for special occasions - heavier makeup, REALLY stand out.

    Because I couldn't decide between the two, I voted D :-)

  • Who cares about makeup. It depends about the girls face and how it looks

    Some girls look ugly with a lot of makeup

    Some look hot with a lot of it

    Some girls look hot with a lack of makeup

    And some look hideous
