Do guys like at least a little makeup?

Not too much tho which makes things scary lol. Just a thin eyeliner, light shade of lipstick, and little foundation

  • Guys like their girl to look good - which often means at least a little makeup, yes. But most guys prefer the girl to have a "natural look" (even if makeup is necessary to achieve that - oh the irony!). We generally do NOT like the "made-up" look unless it's for a special occasion, OR unless, say, you live a whole lifestyle that goes with it, which makes it authentic.

    If you were, say, a goth, or an alt-girl, then the makeup is part of the look, and that's okay. Otherwise - for the vast majority of girls - guys would prefer a more natural, toned-down makeup look (or minimal makeup if you can pull it off). Less is more.

  • Guys like girls without makeup who are already pretty with nice features. Don't listen to the idiot dudes on this site. They're not representative of actual guys out in the real world. Wear your makeup.

  • OP, wear what you want to wear. Look good to yourself first, and then worry about what the men think. Things will naturally follow after that.
    That being said, it's all a matter of personal taste when it comes to men. Some like make up, some don't. (My own little peeve is lipstick that stands out, like bright or dark red.)
    So yeah... just apply what you think looks best! And if anyone gives you crap about it, tell them to take a long walk off a short cliff.

  • Ok, listen up. GUYS LIKE MAKE UP ON A GIRL. I see many girls here don't realize it. Only guys on GaG don't like girls with make up. And 99% of guys on GaG are degenerate virgin losers and chronic masturbators. So who gives a fuck what they think? In real life, guys are nothing like that

  • Of course! It's not necessary though, but it's nice. Just don't overdue it like you said. When we say you don't need makeup or we don't like it, it's usually just when it's over applied. And women often say they feel "ugly" without it and that's certainly NOT the case. Society/media wants you to believe that so you'll keep buying it, but it's not true.

  • Yes, but notice how her hair also changed, and her mouth is smiling a bit more on the second picture. It would make barely no difference if both pictures had the same expression and hair.

    But it doesn't have to be every day, I mean.. save it for special ocasions I think.

  • The girl in the pic looks great either way... if you can rock a more natural look, that's definitely the way to go.

    But just for example, the pic on the right isn't even too much make-up though, I wouldn't say... There's a difference between applying make-up and it looking good than there is just plastering it on there lol.

    Subtle enhancements...

  • You only get a first impression once, might as well make it the best one. This depends more on the woman as some women are more naturally beautiful. In my opinion the picture on the right is better, but both are good. For some women makeup can dramatically improve how they look

  • Depends on the girl. Some look fine either way while others actually need it to not be as plain as an Amish girl. The example you posted is one where a little helps and she doesn't look like a clown or a hooker that is trying too hard to get more customers.

  • Hair, smile, lighting.
    I don't mind a minor touch up for public events, but prefer none day to day.
    Ditto hair. Wash, brush and tie back. No "beauty parlor". Women wear elaborate makeup and hairstypes to compete with other women.

  • Yes, they absolutely do. You just have to do it enough so they don't even notice - they just see how beautiful and pretty you are. Not a hollywood celeb or some kinda beauty-queen.

  • So is the picture on the left without makeup? This particular model looks great either way, in fact I prefer the pic on the left. But I don't recommend going without makeup unless you're a really outstanding natural beauty, like the above.

  • First off you are very beautiful to begin with and I personally would love your face and looks without it. Make up certainly bring out this sexy beautiful look, for special accessions.

  • If the makeup is subtle, such as the picture you use, that's good. It's when it gets excessive that it can make me cringe.

    • True, but wouldn't it make things "easier" as he likes the amount of makeup you like (on you)?

    • Show All
    • Apparently the likes agree with me. Let the two guys who disagree go wear some makeup.

    • Well you can't expect him to look good for you if you don't want to look good for him

  • yes, they like makeup. "Natural makeup"

    It's hypocritical, but it's true.. If you do it right, they'll never know

  • Do whatever makeup you want. Don't take men's opinions seriously. They think that what we call "natural makeup" and "no makeup look" is the real us without makeup lol

    Many of them still know nothing about it. They want the girl to look pretty so makeup is always needed unless you're truly blessed by beauty.

  • Generally, if I am going out ( and by out I mean weddings, parties
    , first dates etc) I will go with the second look. Most of the time I won't wear makeup. Life too short to waste time in the mirror. Plus a really good facial routine will bring out fresh glowing skin anyhow!

    Imperfections are what make humans look beautiful and give character.

    Don't like it when people cover their beauty.
