Guys, what's your opinion on makeup?

I personally love makeup and wear it most days. I love all kinds of different looks. Guys what's your opinion do you mind if full on makeup is done well that it looks good or just natural subtle makeup / no makeup?

  • Most guys will tell you they hate makeup and prefer no makeup at all. But the truth is most guys like the natural look, which CAN mean light makeup, done well.

    The problem is guys are just sick of the fake look. By that I mean fake eyelashes, painted on eyebrows, heavy lipstick, heavy makeup, dyed hair, fake boobs, fake nails, fake lips... fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake fake...

    If you can wear makeup that makes you look good without looking like you're wearing makeup, then that's fine. But most guys are going to tell you they like no makeup at all because they are just sick of fake everything on women.

  • Personally, I dig it when a girl is all done up. Long black lashes, wings on the eyes, the works. I know women work hard on that, and it’s an art. So in my opinion, take as much time as you need in front of that mirror, I’ll be right here waiting. And I’ll appreciate every brush stroke!

    • Thank you. I see all these guys hating on it but in my experience when I was single my dyed pink hair and make up wasn't a problem. If anything they said they liked my uniqueness and thought it was sexy.

    • Right! If you have something great, and can make it better, why wouldn’t you?

  • I personally dont wear it in public but I love makeup especially dark and gothic makeup , or super colorful makeup. Its really fun to play with , I usually dont think ' but what do guys think of this' when I'm doing it so i doubt girls who put on lots of crazy colors on their faces do it to attract someone , unless they are insecure or want to change their features.
    It isn't a good way to use makeup if you are doing it to change your features and be 'attractive' out of insecurity , but I can understand why some girls feel this way. People may say they dont like girls with lots of makeup on or just want an 'average girl' but our society tends to put a lot of pressure on us to look beautiful.

  • I only wear makeup on special occasions, and even there I'll only do some mascara, eyeliner and lipstick. I hate the feeling of foundation and eyeshadow on my face, also I just love the feeling of not being scared to rub my eyes or have the need to check or retouch after eating.

  • Whatever makes a woman most comfortable in her own skin around me and most confident is what I prefer her to do. If she feels sexy and relaxed in heavy makeup or no makeup at all, what I've learned at my age is sexiness mostly comes from within and radiates out of mature grown young adults. I like women to feel comfortable and confident as their true selves. Makeup is amazing. I love how different eyeshadow looks on girls/women. I still think lipstick is sexy and will be forever it's timeless.. I don't think any less of someone who likes to use lots of foundation or whatever all the other shits called (idk makeup lingo/verbage sry) but if a woman spends lots of time putting makeup on and feels prettier in doing so that's fine. I won't shame anyone who uses too little or too much or think any way that's judgmental at all because it's not about me. I'm attracted to women who are confident and actually believe me when I tell then they look sexy in that cheap hoody when she's still half asleep or knows I mean it if I say they look hot as fuck in that outfit or cute when they get stoned and half their eyes are glazed over. If I say that shit in not trying g to make you feel better and lying I mean it cuz Im too old for games and don't say shit like that anymore unless it's true. I'm not here to manipulate or decieve anyone (like you damn women do with your makeup every day forever)

    PS... Side note but to those of u who get fake breasts, tans, eyes, hair, etc and try and hide it all and become a caricature of your true self all in the hopes you'll eventuakky be "hot enough" to attract a "real man" someday lol pls stop and look up the definition of irony first. Always Love yourself and be proud of all of who you are meaning if you have a weave and spray tan and fake tits be proud of those things. If you feel hot In ripped baggy jeans and a football jersey and snapback then be proud being u in that style if it's what u like.

    Sexy isn't defined by anyone person or by culture or anyone but the person who has it on the inside and exudes it by feeling it and/or expressing it.
    Cuz ur born with it.
    Maybe.
    Or maybe it's just Maybelline I don't know

  • Daily makeup is very bad for your skin first thing, and a girl like you should only wear makeup when you are going out but just a bit of make up to much can be a turn off to. But for everyday life you should try to minimize it in my opinion also for the sake of your skin & by the way you are beautifull enough as is =).

  • I think makeup really adds greatly to the face. I wish make up sometimes was more accepted for guys to wear, simply because make up just is great to enhance the skins appearance and works great for coverage of unwanted blemishes. It really can be a life saver and make you feel and look good in the process

  • I personally like the full makeup look if it looks good. I just think it enhances a ladies look that much more. U guess that's obvious though. I can also dig the no makeup lookup if the girl can pull it off some can't and it looks strange to me but maybe I'm more adjusted to girly girls so to speak.

  • Its nice but dont cake it on, and dont use too much. Make up enough to enhance the shape of the face, eyes to a reasonable extent, but not the the extent that all I see is, well, make up. Granted i like the no-make-up look as well but damn if a girl changes things up from time to time with some make-up, i like that.

    I've had make-up used on me before too. Light make-up, but it made me look way more presentable onstage (i was emceeing and acting for a large scale school. production).

    • Admittedly i actually found it rather enjoyable, in retrospect, to have make-up used on me. That time, it was just some foundation to smoothen out the texture of the skin, and interestingly the make up team decided to use mascara to tame my thick eyebrows. Not exactly correct use, but interesting and effective nonetheless😂😂 They got some of the eyebrow hairs to stick to the skin and make them look less bushy that way.

  • I prefer when it looks at least mostly natural.

    When it comes to full-on makeup, call me sexist but I don't understand what girls hope to achieve by doing that.
    They say it's to make themselves feel sexy. My response to this is, if you want to feel sexy, it helps to actually look sexy.

  • I'll be blunt. Truly beautiful girls are better off without makeup. It takes away from their beauty. However for the majority of girls who aren't 10/10 model material, a little makeup works to enhance their looks. A little eyeliner is the only makeup I don't mind on girls though.

  • I like natural beauty, makeup is nice every once in a while when she wants to look nice for me I always tell my significant other "you know you don't have to wear all that make up you look beautiful just the way you are, that's why I'm so lucky to have you"

  • Guys don't know anything about makeup, so don't ask them. Ask your beautician, or cosmetics professional.
    Guys just know pretty when they see it. Done right they don't even know what they're looking at.

    Love can't start 'till attraction does. And then there needs to be a conversation.

  • A little is nice if you are worried about small flaws, but I find natural girls way more beautiful than girls who plaster faces and cake it hard out.

    Even girls who do it very well and tidily, it's just too much.

  • In my opinion, woman look really pretty without makeup, that doesn't mean I hate it or something, if you like expressing yourself in that way, do it! No one should criticise you because of your look, and hobby. According to question, makeup or not, that doesn't matter.

  • I don't care either way, I just hate it when girls complain about "having to do it." Despite societal expectations, technically you don't HAVE to. If you choose to be that pariah and buck social norms you can fully expect me to root for you every step of the way.

  • A little makeup is fine but when she starts to pile it on to the point where she starts to look like a different person, then it's too much and it becomes deceiving. For the latter, there is a saying that goes something like this:

    "Women like what they hear. Men lie
    Men like what they see. Women wear makeup"

  • Personally I find with makeup less is more. If a girl want to where lots of makeup that is fine, but I prefer a more natural look. Makeup can be use to make your face look better, but I don't think people should use it to change how their entire face is. "I want to date a girl not a clown"

  • It's not necessary but okay and wanting to look better is quite natural. May look really really good.
    But drawing eyebrows instantly makes you someone I don't want to have anything to do with, never do that! It's ugly and makes you look like a bitch.

  • For Halloween, I like it. Most of the other time I usually see it over-done, or not required. Which - right now - makes me think: It could be possible that I see someone with an excellent paint job, but don't notice it?

  • subtle is fine. Otherwise some girls look worst in make up then they look in real. Hygiene is more important. Most girls don't shower everyday. Some even feel as if they take showers on special days. Bathing is more important

  • Really love make up, but I can do both.
    I can do a full face with bright make up but I can also do natural make up or no make up.
    It all depends on my mood and the amount of time I have to get ready.
    And I like to just play with make up before showering, I don't have to confidence to go outside with blue make up haha.

  • Make up is Art. Your face is a blank canvass. It's all in your hands if you want to look like a goddess or a clown. It can be a turn on or a turn off too. Some people need to calm down on their eyebrows lol

  • A guy should be perfectly okay with makeup. Rather it’s natural or full face of makeup. Makeup is art and it’s something fun to wear. Makeup is fashion. Not all girls wear makeup because they’re insecure, a lot of girls wear makeup because its fun to wear it, and they like how it looks. We don’t necessarily think we look bad without it, we just enjoy wearing makeup. Any “I like my girls all natural no makeup” kind of guy, I don’t fw.

    • I’m not saying it’s wrong for people to favor natural makeup, I’m just saying it’s dumb to judge people for liking to wear a lot of makeup.

    • Show All
    • Enhance as in it’s necessary

    • ^ because it’s definitely not

  • Makeup is meant to enhance your natural face not cover or hide it. Many women will have the occasional skin imperfection and makeup allows you to show your natural beauty while giving variety depending on mood, outfit etc.

  • On my boyfriend's behalf I can tell you he likes it. He does tell me he rather have me bare face but he likes when I change up and do my makeup, gold eyelids and even falsies

    I guess my point is that during a relationship is a thing of balance and while flirting you should keep it natural.
