How do guys look so good without makeup?

Like even if I don't put on anything I pluck my brows and use a bit of eyebrow pencil or put on a bit mascara but how do guys look so good just as it is without anything?

  • Simple. You are only looking at the men who look the most symmetrical.

    Males are under tremendous genetic pressure to measure up. This is why only a few males end up with highly attractive features (i. e. the pretty boy types). The ones born with these advantages tend to gain the lionshare of female attention in youth. Males give more honest signals of their fitness due to the fact that they don't wear make up. The ones you are focused on are the "hottest" guys and you are ignoring the less attractive ones as if they were invisible/irrelevant. This fits into your own genetic program to only seek the top dog genetically, but you've got plenty of competition.

  • Partially, it's just because we don't see men wearing makeup, so we think they look fine without it. Another reason, at least in older folks, has to do with skin differences in men and women. Men have thicker skin, so they develop fewer wrinkles. Since youth is so valued in our culture, especially for women, we think women who don't wear makeup look worse.

  • If guys commonly wore makeup and that was the society standard you'd think we looked ugly without makeup, and then there'd be girls who'd say men look better without makeup and mean who create naturalist movements agitating men to stop using it and to stop shaving etc. You get the picture, it's all about the society.

  • The true answer has something to do with our DNA. A male is actually more dominant in his features because of testosterone in his body. Women on the other hand have softer characteristics and wears makeup to embellish these traits. "Psychologists have said that, as with so many things, makeup comes down to sex... Furthermore, the desirable qualities a man looks for in a woman - largely related to reproductive fitness - are said to be amplified by makeup" theguardian (2015)

  • the woman form is amazing. women look beautiful, with or without makeup.
    men just don't. Men are not attractive at all. Not sure why women are attracted to us. But women have made it necessary for them to wear makeup by putting unrealistic expectations of look on themselves. Men just don't care.

  • Because we (well, most of us) understand that we don't need paste and powder to flaunt our magnificence*.

    Plus, you'll actually find that a lot more men appreciate the natural look most.

    *(This only applies to attractive men; butt-ugly men just become butt-ugly men with makeup if they apply makeup.)

  • Well everyone is used to guys with no make up, and it's a standard. Make up is seen as a feminine thing, and guys you use it other than for playing a character for say, Halloween, or a movie role, and etc.

  • In my opinion, makeup is just a way to cover up what a "girl" thinks are her flaws. In my opinion people shouldn't wear makeup all the time and every wear because how you someone get to know you if you hid yourself?

  • Natural beauty. Women could never pull of the natural look as well as guys, what with their long eyelashes and good skin that I can't achieve no matter how hard I try.

  • Because it's their character that stands out. They also don't put foundations etc that clogs their pores. So their face stays clean. I think guys are more into workouts, and water, and vitamins or something. So they are more healthy in a way.

    • Yeah it has absolutely nothing to with 'character' and neither does it stands out everyone is judged by their appearance. Males have thicker skin than women which means less wrinkles and looking younger for much longer than women.
