Hi guys,

I've always hated that women wear make up, especially those who over do it. I prefer no make up at all on a woman.

I added a pole and wanted to see what other men thought about this :P just for fun!

It's up to them if it looks good. It really shouldn't matter much to anyone else.


How do you feel about boys wearing make up?

I don't mind makeup, but I like natural beauty. I saw a woman today at the store and I wanted to stop her and ask "Do you do face paintings?". She had so much makeup, not just a lot of foundation but way too much eyeliner and mascara.

Makeup can enhance a woman's beauty and that is ok with me. I find it really attractive when I girl has black hair, bright green eyes, and black eyeliner and mascara.

But there should be a middle ground in this post. I like women who wear makeup but I don't care if they don't, there is no option for me! You need "YES", "NO", "DOESN'T MATTER", "NO MAKEUP, NO SERVICE".

That would make for better poll results.

it really doesn't matter and I find it a little offensive that you're grouping all women into one box. You should say, "I just don't like make up"

Of course, a lot of those who proclaim that "women shouldn't wear makeup" would, at the same time, say a girl was a minger if they had bad skin that they haven't covered up by makeup. And regularly and cheerfully drool away over airbrushed women in pictures with artifically flawless skin, darkened eyes, and so on.

And probably don't realise that a whole lot of women they think don't wear makeup (but are so naturally beautiful OMG!!!), actually do, just in a more subtle way.

I don't wear makeup myself, but it's all good if people choose to, I reckon. Whatever they feel suits them.

However, if a woman I'm dating wants to wear a little light makeup, I don't mind...it's her choice. I just don't find the gaudy, over-the-top makeup that some women wear, very attractive.

I do not wear makeup, I have however been told by a beautician that I have incredibly health skin. I doubt I'll ever bother with the stuff as I get older either, I prefer to present myself warts and all.

I generally dislike the stuff on others but each to their own.

If I am meeting a cute girl I am going to look better. And no I am not going to put on makeup.

If a girl looks great without makeup I say don't over do it. If a girl needs a ton of makeup it starts to look desperate.

I think its fine, as long as they're happy. Make-up is about eradicating flaws and making someone feel confident.

I'm a guy - and I wear make-up (concealer, bronzer). I also get spray tans, my teeth bleached, and my hair/eyebrows/eyelashes dyed. I'm getting some tooth veneers in a few weeks, and possibly botox on my forehead.

I'm a fan of, if you don't like something - change it.

I've lost 8 stone in weight, and have another stone and a half to go.

I'm finally becoming comfortable.

So short answer: Yes.

Aesthetically (in general) I dislike make-up. Pragmatically (on women I know), it's awful. When snuggling or kissing a woman I know, having their face wipe off on me is utterly gross.

I'd have thought it's unhealthy for one's skin too.

No. I like a little bit. I don't like when women slather it on, and I don't like when they wear stuff like bright red lipstick. It looks corny and fake. I like it when a woman wears a little something to accentuate the features she already has, without making it look like she has something to hide.

On a related note, and I'm not trying to be sexist or anything, but can the women on this forum please tell me why you think it's necessary to douse yourselves in perfume? Not sure who you're doing it for, but no one appreciates it (certainly not most men at least) and it's simply not appealing. (and if you're a woman on this forum who DOESN'T do this...kudos to you :) )

I think it depends on the situation. For example...

If I'm going to the grocery store, probably nothing.
If I'm going to work, lite make-up.
If I'm going out, I'm going to glam it up.

Trust me...guys like at least SOME make-up. I used to show my guy co-workers those MSN bits that showed celebs without any make-up. I'd set them up with "Do you think J-Lo/Kate Hudson needs make-up" and it would be a resounding "NO" until I showed them those pics.

Everytime I see a guy oggling over Maxim/FHM/whatever, I murmur under my breath "the wonders of computer enhancing".

Not wearing makeup doesn't rule out looking good, though - I've known certain gals that once in a blue moon don't have makeup on and they're still pretty attractive. ('course, put a little makeup on and they almost take your breath away..)

I don't douse and I like the smell. Depends on what you wear, and how much of it you wear as to whether some people find it attractive or not. Once again, I don't care what you think. :D

Oh I'm quite the opposite there :D I love perfume, not bitter stuff like Channel.
There was a girl at my uni who doused herself in a couple of really awesome perfumes, like smelling the inside of a Chewits wrapper.

Aesthetically (in general) I dislike make-up. Pragmatically (on women I know), it's awful. When snuggling or kissing a woman I know, having their face wipe off on me is utterly gross.

I'd have thought it's unhealthy for one's skin too.

Same reasons here too.
And I always thought it was unhealthy to sleep in the stuff, since it clogs pores (that's a daft concept in itself... If you have spots and cover them with makeup isn't that going to make the spot worse?).


Everytime I see a guy oggling over Maxim/FHM/whatever, I murmur under my breath "the wonders of computer enhancing".
Oh my yes. That's why when the topic comes up of any famous folk you fancy I can't name any. I've done photo "enhancing" on models before and seeing magazine girls just builds a mental image of what they're like before the "enhancing".
It's a shame that it's kind of necessary now. God forbid a celebrity goes to the shop without makeup... "X celebrity is ILL AND DYING". Le sigh.

SECONDED. Mostly because I've had room mates who like to let loose Axe-bombs and leave me to choke to death in the aftermath.

However, some light perfume on girls can be truly incredible.

As for makeup... sometimes it's attractive if done right (note- there are very VERY few girls on whom bright red lipstick looks good. Generally it's an utter disaster.. little pet peeve of mine), but in general I find girls to be more attractive without any makeup. They suddenly become real people!

A few girlfriends and I were out at lunch a month or so ago and this guy walked by and was (unfortunately) seated a table over from us and he smelled of this funky smell. Thankfully, we were wrapping up and rock-paper-scissored who would go up to him and ask what he was wearing. My friend lost, asked and he responded with "Axe spray".

Ugh.

I've smelled it on a few guys at the gym...I think that is the only place it is acceptable. I guess its better than BO although mass amounts of Axe makes it a close call. What is sad is that the marketing seems to be working on some poor saps...

I think it works alright as a body spray if you don't fire it for more than one burst, because by the 1 second mark it's hopelessly over-done.

okay... let it be know... I'M A CHICK! LOL :D

I just wanted to add my 2 cents here, just for perspective purposes

A few types of make up that are out there
The first 3 are acceptable in the GIVEN circumstance... you cannot interchange them.
The last is just wrong on soooo many levels!

1. Church makeup
2. Day-to-Day (your typical put-on-for-work or whatever) makeup
3. "Clubbin' Makeup"
4. Over the top/over the hill lady trying to still look 20 (and even then she wore too much)

My mom always told me (sigh... i swore i'd never quote her...) that "The key to wearing make up is to make it look as though you're wearing none at all"
That having been said...
Day to day makeup needs to be just that.

Church Makeup is some lighter blush and maybe some simple eyeshadow but nothing dark or to thick (in terms of eyeliner or mascara).

Clubbin makeup is the dramatic/dark/charcoal lined eyes and heavier blush (so you can actually see it in the dimmer light)...
I mean... we're putting sparkles on our boobs for pete's sake! you're not even lookin' at our eyes!!! LOL

and the 4th type... you've all seen them...
Think... "Mi mi" from the Drew Carey show ;)

I'm not really sure if I "like it" when women wear make up, but I find the 'barely there' application much more appealing than even the 'well made up' application.

Take for example Eva Green in Casino Royale:
Here's her minimal look (granted it's a movie so this is probably more makeup there than most, but still here she has the barely made up look :) )
http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/image/hdtv/Samsung-LE52F96BD/bd-vesper.jpg

And here she is with the full on, but well made up look
http://www.independentcritics.com/images/casino%20royale%20vesper%20lynd%20WALLPAPER.jpg

I prefer how she looks in the first picture by far.

Clubbin makeup is the dramatic/dark/charcoal lined eyes and heavier blush (so you can actually see it in the dimmer light)...
I mean... we're putting sparkles on our boobs for pete's sake! you're not even lookin' at our eyes!!! LOL
Well you could always get a stencil for that glitter boob spray and spell out "Look up stupid!". :D

Why, yes. As far as it's done neatly.

And I can not write it better than what WinkWink726 already did, so I'll just refer to her post.


Although, I like to add that overdone make up can be very neat for photo shots, since it's done on purpouse, and therefore controled, yet over dramatic. I like it.

Pretty sure you're asking a dude if he likes the tinted venom. Not that I can comment on whether or not he wears it ... apparently it is cool for men to wear makeup (I disagree), but I'm pretty sure you're asking a dude if he wears it.

I don't really wear it. I'll toss some powder on and brush my eyebrows since I have some lighter hair there, but nothing much. Someone told me I should put something around my eyes, I've thought about it ... but nothing past that. I have no one to impress and frankly it's impossible to see past all the rest so why bother with something like my eyes?

I'm ok with anyone who wants to wear it, but if you overdue the eyes and such I'll tell you Avril called and wants her look back. ;)

you know what else is great for like a natural look with a bit of natural color?
That smashbox "O" lipgloss that emphasizes natural lip colors?
Its really cool!!!

Oh... and i have a new favie mascara too as of about a week ago!
the Fresh Supernova? Its awesome!
(but i totally digress! LOL)

Thanks! It's a fun business :)

Smashbox has some great stuff..I've used that product.It works nice but it's hard to compete with Venom..I like using the clear Venom,and then adding powdered pigment to it to pick up the eye shadow....
We use a lot of MAC Cosmetics.Pricey,but they wear well and last. Their Pigments are amazing..If you use them,there's a great alternative to them that wear just as well and are a fraction of the cost.

I do like it when women wear make-up. If it is applied appropriately, it is one way of showing they care about their appearance. That said, it is not a problem if a woman doesn't care to wear make-up - if they are comfortable with their appearance to go out looking natural then that's cool too.


4. Over the top/over the hill lady trying to still look 20 (and even then she wore too much)

Verily, mutton dressed as lamb. It is an art to apply make-up to enhance the beauty of your years rather than applying make-up in a way (usually with a trowel) to act as a substitute for a time machine to take you back to your lost youth.

Why, yes. As far as it's done neatly.

And I can not write it better than what WinkWink726 already did, so I'll just refer to her post.


Although, I like to add that overdone make up can be very neat for photo shots, since it's done on purpouse, and therefore controled, yet over dramatic. I like it.

Indeed, isn't this something you have an interest in with your photography?
Then again, photo shoots are designed to be dramatic and provoke a reaction where the model's make-up and features are over accentuated. But yes, I like it because it takes the make-up artist's art to its extreme, but I would probably run away if I encountered something like that in real life though.

I'm not big on it; in fact none of the women I've been seriously attracted to in recent history have been heavy (or even light, really) makeup users. I prefer the natural look in that regard...shows confidence when a girl thinks she's attractive enough without it.

Mostly i'm not a fan because girls usually overdo it and come off looking...really....really....bad. On some girls it works...in moderation, in fact some do not look good without makeup but on others...it's bad.

I prefer au naturale

Well I'm a 15 year old girl and I find that many girls my age tend to wear too much make up, especially when I went to an all girls school. Even though there were rules stating no-make up, many girls would wear black eye liner and mascara (making them look like as if they had a hangover IMO), as well as heaps of blush which gave them an 'artificial' look, kind of like over-doing it in Photoshop. Now that I'm at a co-ed school, I find the girls there don't put on as much make up as the ones at an all girls school.

As for me, I only apply a light amount of make up on for special events such as weddings, birthdays and school photos. I find that I look the same with make up on as I do without.

The only thing that my girlfriend wears is a little mascara, and even when she doesn't wear it I don't really notice. Overuse of makeup just makes women look fake! :cool:

Yes, I prefer it on most

Some women without them look terrible
