So I've been dating this girl, everything is fine, but she doesen't wear any make up, yeah I know everyone says that they like it "natural" but to be honest everyone wants theyr girl to wear make up. So how do I tell her that I want her to start wearing some make up and not look like a jerk. She says that she doesen't have enough but she does, I' just an excuse.

Makeup is a hassel, and really hard to do if you don't know how to put it on. I know that I look pretty goofy and awful with make up on because I have no idea how to apply it. It also takes up a good amount of time. I just don't care that much. I throw some concealer on in the morning, to hide blemishes and such but apart from that nawh man.
Think of it this way, if someone asked you to spend a bare minimum ten minutes (provided you don't know what to do or aren't perfect and mess up and have to fix mistakes) or upwards of twenty to coat your face in stuff that can feel weird and doesn't make you happy, how would you feel? Then the rest of the day you have to be careful not to smudge it. When I wear makeup I always end up smudging my eye shadow everywhere.
And, honestly, I've known more guys who hate their girlfriends wearing make up than prefer it. My boyfriend likes when I put it on but for the most part he doesn't notice or really care. Also, it's really expensive. One color of good, quality eye shadow can cost five dollars, and that's just one part of many that you need to look good. To get the cheapest of everything you need to be fully made up can easily cost you 30 dollars. That's a good deal of money for something she doesn't even want. And these things can run out fairly quickly if you use them every day, so no, she probably doesn't have enough. Who are you to demand she does?
If you want her to wear make up so badly then you buy it for her. Go with her and she'll pick some things out and you can buy them for her. She doesn't want them she doesn't have to buy them, she can just go date some one who finds her perfectly beautiful and amazing regardless of whether or not she paints up her face. If she wanted you to wear a certain cologne she would go buy that for you, because she has no right to demand you wear it and then expect you to go buy it. So go get the make up for her.
You're asking her to spend time and money and effort on something she doesn't care about, while in the process making yourself appear very superficial. Why does it matter if she wears make up every day? Are you trying to show her off? Is she not beautiful enough? Or is it just you want her to wear it when the two of you are going to hang out? Which isn't at bad but it still leaves the feeling that you think she's not beautiful.
Honestly there's no good way to ask that question so you'll have to try and just bite the bullet and hope it ends up okay.2
