I don't mean in an ugly way, it's kind of like if you wore an evening gown with sneakers. I think makeup is more of an accessory.
I think guys misunderstand makeup too. The girl usually does it more for themselves than anything.

I put on makeup for myself, I don't care whether or not it influences a boy's impression of me. I am only a teenager but I dislike my skin/ It has a few blemishes and without makeup my skin tone is not generally even- either way I am really self concious. In my first few years of high school I didn't wear any makeup but I was self concious and I'd always try to cover any blemishes with my hands because I was ashamed. I didn't dislike who I was but I hated the way I looked and would get upset because no other girl I knew had a problem like that so it made me stick out all the more. Now I wear makeup, nothing much just some foundation and blusher and simple mascara because the foundation evens my skin tone, the blusher makes me look more natural and the mascara makes sure my eye lashes look normal so they are not covered in mascara. I don't think it's a lot to wear but I do wear it everyday because it looks so much better and gives me more confidence. Boys can say what they want about wanting a girl who doesn't wear makeup but I'd rather wear makeup and have more confidence in myself than not wear makeup and be shy and depressed about myself. Long rant over now ;)
