Do you prefer girls with or without make-up?
 
What do you think? Especially guys :D

Little bit o' powder, and a little bit o' paint makes a girl's face seem what it ain't.

Ryonea 2011-01-21 21:27

I prefer without. They'll look more natural IMO.
but there's nothing wrong with using make-up, especially if it's done properly. :)

MeoTwister5 2011-01-21 21:28

I prefer without. Makeup only makes a pretty girl look prettier, so it can only make better what you already have, and I prefer natural.

As someone who absolutely can't stand to have anything on his own skin in general due to the unpleasant, creepy feeling of it, the idea of anyone wearing makeup grosses me out completely.

Plus, 99% of the time it just looks awful (to me, anyway).

Tenken's Smile 2011-01-21 21:31

WITHOUT.

Reasons I don't like make-up:

- Natural looks are true beauty. It shows that a woman is confident in her looks when she doesn't use make-up.

- You get used to see someone with make-up on, and when she doesn't wear it, you're surprised at how different she looks...

- Some girls easily lose confidence when she doesn't have make-up on. Thinking that she leaves the house without it would scare her. Once I visited a female friend, she tried to avoid looking at me or me looking at her face; I figured it's because she wasn't wearing make-up...

- Make-up can make you look good now, but later on, the more you use it, it actually harms your face (i.e.: skin).

- I hate it when someone wastes my time just for her to put make-up on.

I also think that women competing in beauty pageants shouldn't wear make-up because it's fake. With some skills in the art of make-up, ANY girls can make herself look beautiful. Then, what's the point of these competitions?

Simon 2011-01-21 21:34

Make-up done well can be an interesting art-form, but the work of nature beats the work of the cosmetics industry any time :)


Plus a girl who doesn't wear make-up won't spend as long getting ready to go out, but I won't mention that here because I'll get kicked for saying it. OH SHI-

Where's the "I like it if well done and minimalistic" or what have you?

For some women, going au naturale is great, more power to them.
Some (like myself) like to slap on a bit of eyeliner/mascara, a carryover from wearing glasses in high school and your eyes vanishing.

I do admit, the thought of wearing a "full face", aka foundation, podwer, blush, etc etc makes me cringe; I did stage makeup in high school, so I had to plaster on all kinds of gunk on our actors, and I think that caused me to be more of a minimalist when it comes to makeup.

My gf wears it like.. once or twice a year.. that's it. the most I do is a light dusting of powder on my nose/.forehead (oily zones) and a smidge of eye makeup (aforementioned eyeliner/mascara). I'm looking into getting micro-pigmentation (aka an eyeliner tattoo) done w/in the next year, so I won't even have to bother with that ;) a swipe of mascara before i run out the door and boom, done.

I can't imagine having to wait an hour for my partner/gf/whatever to put on their face o.O only to take it off at night, and so on...

Samari 2011-01-21 21:47

With. A little makeup never hurt anyone...and makes women look a lot better in my opinion. I don't like it when girls put massive amounts on and look like a geshia or drag queen, but a little bit doesn't hurt. I actually wish my girlfriend would wear some more often. She already looks nice naturally, but she'd look a lot better if she'd wear a little makeup more often.

Now we know why goths only come out late at night.

"Hurry up, the club opens at midnight!"

"But it's only 8pm..."

"Exactly!"

Jjo 2011-01-21 22:03

If I were a guy I think I'd prefer a girl not wear foundation. I can't stand that stuff myself - tried it once and hated the way it felt on my skin. I don't mind concealer though...but I am a girl so I am not the one who has to worry about a girl spending the night and not taking her makeup off..then it ends up on your clean pillows >.< lol

Hiroi Sekai 2011-01-21 22:07

Need I say what everyone else has been saying already? Yes.

My answer is: WITHOUT. *points to everyone else's replies* Look there for explanations; you've all said what I would have.

Jaden 2011-01-21 22:12

Don't think it's a big deal. If someone wants to wear it to maintain their image, I can stand behind that...I wouldn't like it being done for my sake though. Except when cosplaying. XD

synaesthetic 2011-01-21 22:12

None of you guys are hot enough to attract a woman who is likewise hot enough to never wear makeup. :heh:

I don't go outside without makeup on. I seriously do not. Everyone has flaws, and some flaws are worse than others. I do not layer the makeup on so thickly that it looks like a clown mask, however.

Use it sparingly; the goal of wearing makeup is to enhance your strong points and downplay your flaws, all while looking like you aren't wearing much of anything.

My partner never wore makeup when we first met, and now, she wears makeup the same way I do. And I'm not afraid to say she looks much better now (though, learning to dress appropriately for her body type and stop trying to resemble an extra in a 50 Cent music video really helps as well).

I will also posit that what you may believe to be an "all-natural" girl is actually a girl who simply knows how to use makeup well (minimal and complementary rather than a "mask.")

That's a valid point, as well; a lot of women wear makeup, they just do so in a manner where it's very hard to tell ;)
Only reason I know my gf doesn't wear any is cause I've known her for 6 years and actually never seen her put it on, and let's be blunt; by now, I'd've noticed her putting it on in the morning

Master_Yoma 2011-01-21 22:28

With makeup there nothing hotter then red lipstick

Jjo 2011-01-21 22:30

It's pretty easy to tell when someone is wearing makeup that is for show - lipgloss, eyeliner, bronzer, even blush since most people suck at putting that on, lol ect.

Foundation and concealer can't really make anyone look better unless they have horrid skin that distracts from everything else..But I do agree some women are very good at applying both to look flawless. I've seen some girls on youtube with skin that looks like ferrero rocher chocolate and after applying their foundation/concealer it's like......o_0......lol

You may well be right, but that's not the point :p

What you call "flaws" I call "character". After years working at a university and seeing 2000+ cute first-years roll up every February, I hit on the theory that women are like cheese: they start off all soft and bland and alike, and it's only with age that they develop some bite and their own distinctive flavour. Of course every woman I've said this to has responded "heyyy, you calling me mouldy?" but that's not what I meant :heh:

This is why I referred to make-up as an art-form earlier: sure, a girl can look very "pretty" in a generic way by careful use of artifice, but pretty isn't the same as attractive. What attracts me to a woman are the things about her that are different from everyone else, which are usually the things that the magazines say are flaws. Besides, it's not just about looks - when a woman refuses to fuss over hiding her flaws that says something about her personality, and to me it says something positive.

But this is all totally subjective of course - maybe I'm just not interested in Barbie because I know I'm sure as hell no Ken :)

With, Just not too much, make-up is a girl thing I gauss they can use it if they want. So yeah, Just not tooo much. like some girls look weird (not saying they look unattractive) with out mascara

yezhanquan 2011-01-21 22:40

Light make-up. It's only basic courtesy not to show people your "wake-up" face.
