    • That has nothing to do with the post, and your reply is just feel good bs. The only reason people voted for the left one is the connotation of "no make" with "natural"

  • Wow look at these numbers! 65% prefer the one with light makeup. Suck it, guys who claim you're all about women being natural.

    • Funny thing is that most man here doesn't even know that dark circles are a natural thing on woman's skin. They think it's related to bad health or lack of sleep. This shows that they don't even know what "no makeup" looks like.

    • I dont entirely agree lumos, there are a lot of girls who look pretty natural but as a gender you have decited to artificially compete by using makeup. Its not our fault if the efforts pay off. Like i said we preffer the natural look but that doesn't mean we preffer natural. It doesn't mean we dislike natural either. I still take fully natural over plastic.

    • @Nycterelis if I'm already attracted to him, beard or no beard doesn't make a difference. I know that guys can look very different without their beard but like I said, I don't care?

      @sawno I don't think women collectively decided to just start slapping shit onto our faces. Like with any other trend/expectation, it was mostly created by the market. At least the kind of makeup we know of today. Companies of beauty producs always play with people's insecurities and make people feel like they need these products, even if they don't. Because money. And that's how it has turned into a societal expectation for women to wear makeup. Many people would consider makeup-free women uglier, less professional and unhealthier than their makeup-wearing counterparts. It's kinda hard to be liberated from a societal expectation like that.

  • Light make up, humans were not born perfect. They are bound to have minor flaws, and if they choose to wear makeup to hide those flaws, then they should be allowed to do so.

  • Mmm well I won't be rude but tbh the woman's complextion on the left honestly concerns me. She has dark circles on her eyes which tells me she is not sleeping well so I would try to encourage her to see a doctor for her well being and in addition to that I believe natural beauty is better than fake beauty. Hope this helps

    • Most woman have dark circles, it's a natural feature of their face, this doesn't mean she's not sleeping well. The thing is that almost all girls use makeup to hide it.

    • Show All
    • Well, I sleep very well, my health is perfect and I still have some dark circles. It's not a disease, it's natural of human skin, ask any dermatologist. :)

    • I guess, did you have them since you where little?

  • I prefer no makeup. I salute the natural look. But i am fine with light makeup or heavier examples as well. It's all about the girl's choice and comfort. But if i want to choose my own preference. I'd say nothing can beat natural appearance and natural fragrance. We don't need luxurious chemicals and items in order to look good. However, makeups at any type would be fine if it occurs periodically.

    The comparison of the photos that usually people or sources attend to show and display the differences between no makeup state with makeup states are so cheeky and sometimes playful. The makeup here is not light. There is a tone of built up and foundation.

    In this picture. The girl is suffering from an unhealthy skin. Which could be a tone of reasons. It could be blood related, kidney related (which both can be dealt by nutrition) so lack of necessary nutrients and vitamins or lack of sleep. The point is, if we take care of our body and appearance properly as much as possible. We don't have to cover ourselves with makeup and think this is better. The girl has no issue in her appearance. She's naturally beautiful as all the ladies i'd dare to say as i believe everyone have their own type of beauty. But there is a disorder on the skin which that is effecting the overall quality of the look. Proper care makes everything look at it's best while no makeup would be required to cover it up. On the other hand, many of such skin marks, acne, redness, dryness and pressurized skin undertones are commonly a cause of excessive usage of makeups itself. If you use makeups moderately. Periodically. Wash it up in time and properly at the same time. The skin and the poor sensitive face won't be effected strongly by a tone of chemicals. That's where we can start to embrace natural beauty. Use makeup moderately, take care of your health. Don't destroy your natural appearance. Then embrace it with proud and happiness.

  • These 2 best options.

    I don't like heavy make up.

    Light make up and no make up are the best.

    Usually light make up look amazing coz it shows the girl care about her etc..

    But trust me the pretty girl look the prettiest without make up. But we subconsciously will see light make up better even if she looked better without make up :), coz we think she take care of her looks etc...

    Anyway usually light make up look amazing coz its like taking very tasteful chocolate and gift wrap it.

    • on that pic it's really just her eyes... if she wouldn't look like she had 2 days without sleep then I'd actually prefer the left one. or on the right if you remove the fake blush... I hate that

    • it was just an explanation how it looks. but I don't think this strong is common on most girls... a bit yes but not this much.

    • Yeah, in this case it's a bit worse.

  • Most girls look great natural. This woman looks like she just got outta bed with 3 hours of sleep so of course make up is going to really improve her image. My ex didn't wear make up unless we had a formal date and you could hardly tell.

  • I prefer naturally beautiful girls who need no makeup at all.
    However, such girls are quite rare unfortunately, so a little bit of natural looking makeup is ok (face power, foundation, concealer).
    I don't like lipsticks, blushers, mascara, nail polish and other stuff like that.

  • I prefer her as she is, and If I can't like, or lover HER, as she is, isn't make-up, clothes, and all that just a BIG LIE?
    I'm more focused on the person, that her appearance, her weight, breast size, and so on. I like her, for HER, and that is what I WANT: HER, without all kinds of fake, phony BS! If you can't love yourself, and need to enhance yourself with paint, clothes, labels and LIES, you can never truly be happy, because you will always be afraid that someone sees 'behind that mask' that you use to hide the real person.
    I would rather know the real person, with whatever flaws she might think she has, but I don't notice, because I care about her.
    call me what you will, A Romantic, a fool, or whatever. Just how I feel about it.

    • I was disappointed and disgusted to see a guy thumbs down my opinion to this question, but then I read your opinion! WOW! If only men in my area and around my age shared the same views and values of beauty as you do! I really enjoyed reading your answer and had my heart feel full to hear that there are men like you who appreciate true beauty and remind us young ladies what it's all about to love our natural selves! THANK YOU! *hugs*

    • @SomGuy37 Thank goodness for the amazing women that have taught you well in the way a man should view and value women! Props to them! πŸ‘Š I was darn blessed to have men who raised me in not taking shit from guys who couldn't accept me for my freckles, narrow and brown eyes (which I hated as a kid); them not knowing a thing about how to apply make up may have also forced me to learn to love myself lol But anyhoo, on behalf of women, THANK YOU for the kind words sir! πŸ™‚

    • @aicarg Thank you, but no need to call me 'Sir'!! Sir's wear ties, and it chokes off the oxygen to their brain, hence the BAD decisions among CEOs!!

  • Honestly, I love a woman with no make-up. I tell my wife and she scoffs, but it suggests an intimacy with another person. Guys who only want to see the woman last thing at night and not first thing in the morning aren't thinking things through as it were :/ Remember, the expression isn't "beauty is only make-up deep"

  • I am not a big fun of make up - actually I'm usually against it because it is either over-used or just used to make something that is not real. In your case the "light"make up is very basic and not really made to contrast colors or to add anything, it's merely a cover and it looks wonderful. can't see why not.

  • both pictures are of an attractive woman. one clearly wearing makeup, one not.

    I prefer girls... do whatever the fuck they want lol. if I'm attracted I am... if I'm not I'm not.

    I think most men would agree that makeup seems to matter a lot more to women and their female peers than it does to men. :-P

  • gotta say she really doesn't sleep well so I can see why she puts on make up under her eyes. her face changed a lot with the light make up, much cleaner and she still doesn't look like she fell into the pot. that's the reason women use make up? to get rid of minor flaws

  • I like natural beauty, there's something around slight hyper pigmentation around the eyes or olive/tan skin that's really pretty to me.
    But I also like going out with concealer on :) it makes you look more awake to not have that discoloration. So, light make up too.

    If I was going out to try and woo a guy, I'd do a light base and simple eyes and lips-so, B, light make up.

    We should also take into consideration that this is a naturally attractive girl. Imagine how the results would be if the girl was average or less average...

    Side note: How the heck did she manage create the illusion of her nose being so much thinner? I am impressed by her skills.

  • While I agree most men don't know how much make up goes into the natural look, I think they sort of understand. And I also think they like both a natural face and a done up face, but it depends on the occasion and how well applied the done up make up is.
    Everyday coffee date = light make up.
    Classy ass dinner = classy ass cake face.

  • Use makeup that brings out your best features and looks natural and appropriate for the occasion. However, at some stage you will wear no makeup and be seen, so don't let it be too much of a contrast. Be comfortable in your own skin either way. Your eyes and a great smile will win every time.
