(onion2k) Wearing no makeup when you go out shows a disregard for social convention, which is a great way to live but people won't be attracted to you for it unless you intentionally hang out with the sort of people who like that trait.

Would you buy those porns magazines if Jemma (sic) Jemmison wasn't made up and airbrushed? Hell no!

Maybe they watched her debate the Oxford Union debate team. Or maybe they fantasize about the average $30 mill a year she brings in? Maybe it's just that she looks good when she's reaaaaaaaaaally bad. ***shrugs***

~OT~ My exhusband had a thing for "less is more" when it came to make-up. And then he met the other woman. I was a tad stunned when I talked to her up close and personal for the first time. She was all sorts of Spackle-d up. Guess it just goes to show: preferences change and what she offered in other ways apparently mattered more than the fact she truly did wear entirely too much make-up. To each their own.

I like to play with vivid or dramatic colors when i go out at night. I dont go out at night a lot so when i do i go all out glamour-puss.
During the day i usually just wear some earth toned shadow and light lipstick or colored chapstick.
I guess if you have really bad skin or dont like the way you look or are insecure about aging you could paint it on all the time...it doesnt really make anyone look prettier or younger though.
Some women end up looking like drag queens.
Preferences vary.......some men love it and some hate it.

DUDE YOU ARE SO CORRECT!

and the funny part about it is that women don't realize that other women are not trying to help them but to hinder them.

their girlfriends and hairdresser tell them to chop off their hair and when they do they usually become LESS attractive as most men (according to the forum on women with long hair) love long hair much better than short hair.

I lived in Europe for 2 years after having graduated from college. The college I went to, all the girls were very girly- Betty Bowhead types. Cute as buttons, etc.

Yet when I was in Europe- most of the women wore far less make up than my school girls. It was a bit noticeable in the beginning, but then I forgot about it. The women were still plenty hot and attractive.

When I returned from Europe- I was out and about on the hunt and it was immediately strikingly noticeable just HOW MUCH makeup most American women wear.

I was actually turned off by it all. Looked like they were preparing for a pow wow or something. War Paint and all.

Since, I have only dated women who are darker complected and have more natural color in their skin. Most of these women have been from other countries as well. Therefore most have only worn make up for the reason it SHOULD BE.

that is- only as an enhancement.

an enhancement to their own natural color and to the outfit they are choosing to wear that night.


I just dont' do war paint girls any longer. Its just not sexy.

I hear you bro. Its SHOCKINGLY bad just how much makeup women are wearing out there.

Ladies....can we please PLEASE tone down the god damn foundation on your faces too? If I can SEE the white foundation on your skin, YOU'RE WEARING TOO MUCH.


Im sorry but most ladies wear their makeup all wrong, and it looks absolutely awful.


I prefer a woman without makeup, or very little makeup solely meant to enhance what they have. Ive seen far too many ladies literally covering up their faces with caked on nonsense. No good!

There are two reasons why I highly prefer the natural look (no makeup at all). First, it is much more confident and sexy to present yourself as you are. Second it eliminates a lot of time, fidgeting, and money wasted. My wife only wore makeup once in 17 years--for a Halloween party. That says it all.

Sounds like the wrong shade applied. Where the colour is eerily dissimilar from the natural colour of the neck. I've probably been guilty of this. One woman wearing heavily applied bright make-up during the day together with a body-hugging black dress I immediately assumed had to be a prostitute from the local brothel. Could think of no other explanation.

I have a co-worker who wears tons of makeup, and it does think it ages her. When she wears less she, her beauty shines better. I wear it once in a great while but the majority of the time no. Even in all my photos that I have on except for 1, I have no make up on at all.

I love a woman with absolutely no make-up at all. I am all about natural looks and beauty, I dont like makeup as I think it makes them look fake.

With that being said a few women do really need it!

Natural for me, when it comes to make-up less is more.

I wear little make-up. Just enough to accentuate the positive!

I am a sucker for a raspberry or mocha lip gloss.... only because of the hint of flavor during kissing

natural is better. I prefer that I need not wash my pillow case in the morning because it has all your face paint on it. And a true beauty looks great without it.

It is what we did with cars as kids, bondo and a fresh coat of cheap paint, hides all the sins, attracts a buyer that would have passed it by other wise and off to the bank with the profit. Thanks MAACO
if a girl is similarly spackelled with foundation and make up accents, it immediately makes me question the true condition of said equipment.

Therefore most have only worn make up for the reason it SHOULD BE.

that is- only as an enhancement.

an enhancement to their own natural color and to the outfit they are choosing to wear that night.


I just dont' do war paint girls any longer. Its just not sexy.



I used to wear makeup, foundation and blush mostly. When I was a teenager even eyeshadow and painted my nails too. I don't use any now except lip gloss and maybe under eye concealer. My niece who is in her early 20's thinks she has to have it caked on to go some where. In my opinion, she looks better just natural without any.

My boyfriend likes me to wear flavored lip gloss too so he can steal it during kissing.

I dissagree with most that say the natural look is good .. if you saw my face bare you wouldnt be saying that


Yup. Over the last few years I have developed red parts all over my face. It looks like I am an alcoholic my nose is so red.

I used to wear minimal makeup - just a bit of enhancement. Just a bit of cover-up, blush and lip gloss. Once in a while, I'd do my eyes. I always hated a ton of makeup and never bowed to peer pressure about it either.

When someone doesn't have good skin, it is hard to go out "natural". Men keep saying that they like the natural look. What they should really say is "I like women with good skin.

I still refuse to pack on a ton of makeup, but when I look at pictures of myself, I don`t like how I look. The red spots are noticeable and it looks ugly and since I`m very pale, they really show up. I have always wanted to have a darker complexion even though there are plenty of men who like pale women.

I`ve seen pics of people with bad or oily or blotchy skin and it has changed the attractiveness level of the picture just as much as someone with tons of makeup would be unattractive.

As for whether this means you are confident or not, I don`t really know. I just knew at 15 that the bright blue eyeshadow looked really bad, as did a ton of blush. Whether that means I was confident I don`t know. I think I`ve always just not wanted to be part of a group.....

^^^^^ Those celebrities don't just have make-up....they have airbrush artists and PhotoShop artists doing further manipulations.... years ago I did the photography for my (now ex) wife company for their employee album. Everyone was bowed by my photography skills...saying that was the best picture they had ever had taken.... I didn't have the heart to tell them that it was my RETOUCHING skills NOT my photography skills that removed yellow teeth, blemishes, crows feet and widened their pupils!

^^^^^^ Ha Ha laugh if you want! It's true though! Don't worry, the guys who couldn't get dates/laid in high school or college will still bend over (barely, if they CAN!) backwards for you... BUT WAIT! You are too shallow to have to date those guys!
The guys, you want ARE capable of dating younger women! You know, the ones who look good with moderate make-up ...and just as good with none!

Um actually I hung out with three of those "guys" and they are very attractive now and rich. I've known them since I was 14. And I dated two of them. I am more apt to date a guy who couldn't get a date in high school vs. a guy who got all the girls.

And I'm actually "too shallow" to date anyone at this point in time so any "guys I want" are probably out dating all kinds of other women anyway; however I think you missed the sarcasm in my post.

Makeup is suppose to enhance your appearnce....any man who says they want natural beauty but are drolling over playboy are full of it....and even worse I hate women who think walking out with no make up is attractive they are delusional...make up is suppose to make a womn polished...if you as a woman take time to wax,do pedis and mani then damn it dont half ass....it makes no sense to me...AND ALL WOMEN NEED MAKE UP in my book....

I agree with this part. Women in magazines, movies, etc., are not 'natural' in the sense they are not wearing make up and not enhanced in a number of ways: they are basically glamorized. However, I disagree that all women need makeup and going out without makeup is unattractive.


I've had more than one guy tell me I don't need make up. I rarely wear any and yet the guys still find me attractive. I even had one friend who thought I was wearing make up in a photo on a social networking site and almost seemed upset with me over it.lol It was just the lighting but he told me why are you wearing makeup, you look like a China Doll.
