Do you prefer girls with make up or without?

Girls rely on make up to be beautiful. Some girls don’t. What do you think?

~Yes, I prefer girls—with or without makeup!

Seriously, though, I have no preference one way or the other about makeup. I would be more interested in the personality than the person. When I was younger and in the market, so to speak, I sometimes found too much makeup to be a turn-off.

I’m a natural girl that wears makeup on special occasions, it’s horrible for your skin!!
Some of the girls I work with pile it on and it’s just awful.

How old is the girl? If the girl is age 13, she shouldn’t wear makeup. If the girl is age 35, carefully-applied makeup gives her a polished, well-groomed look.

When I see a girl wearing makeup, I mentally try to peel it away and imagine what she’d look like without it. It’s a compulsion to see the real face. I’d rather be spared that exercise.

@thorninmud Marilyn Monroe without makeup was still gorgeous. To me, it’s almost like a mask for some women. Of course if you are cursed with bad skin like some people, it’s probably necessary. A little mascara and eyeliner and I’m out the door, it’s wonderful!

I love make-up and wear it on a daily basis. I feel prettier wearing it and, when applied correctly, it can really bring out a woman’s natural beauty and show off some personality as well.

I see nothing wrong with covering up acne, dark circles, and other imperfections if it makes a woman feel good. I admire girls that look beautiful without it and I have friends that never wear make-up or only put on mascara and lipgloss, but I’m not partial to the “plain Jane” look on myself.

When I admire them from a distance I like to see them with make up. When I am with a girl I prefer her without.

It depends on the woman, but generally I don’t find makeup very attractive. Sometimes I think too much makeup hides the girl’s natural beauty.

It holds no particular value to me either way. If I have an appointment to see a woman, and I notice she has dolled up a little from normal, I take it as a compliment.

I wear makeup everyday. I love makeup. I look nice with and without, just different. But I don’t like the natural look in general, not on me or other women. I prefer a polished look.

If every girl in the world didn’t wear make up for a day it would be wonderful. We will all have a natural beauty. Not worrying about any smudging or running make up. I wonder why people invented make up? Long ago girls didn’t have make up

@Pinkpastelrainbow Runny, smudged makeup is cheap makeup. And cheap makeup is bad makeup. Mine stays put all day and I never have to worry about it.

I prefer for women to be comfortable, whether they are wearing makeup or not.

I prefer make up that isn’t obvious. If you can see it, it doesn’t look natural. On the other hand, a little brightening of the face can enhance a face that doesn’t have the glow of youth anymore.

Beauty is in variety. We would not notice the beauty of a single wildflower amoungst a field of the same.

Without or with just a little tiny bit.

I don’t think it should matter, you should love a woman regardless of what she decides.
How much makeup she wears is up to her and you should support that.

Anyway, (if anything matters) what matters is that she wears it at the right time, the quantity isn’t important. So for example if you’re at home together she won’t have makeup on, or if she does it’ll be minimal.

If you’re going somewhere fancy then expect her to have makeup on.

If one can see your makeup then you are wearing to much. It should be used as an enhancement. To me there is nothing worse than drawn on lines around the eyes, spiky lashes, lines around the mouth Ugh!

I use make up to make me look alive when I am have a particularly bad day :)

A few years ago, I made a New Years resolution to wear makeup every day. Doing so makes me feel groomed and confident. Even if I have no plans to leave the house, I nonetheless put on my makeup. This is one New Years resolution that’s been easy to keep.

The best part of all—Paul had no idea that I wear makeup! I apply it sparingly and with a careful hand, so it enhances without being obvious. When I recently told him that I never go a day without it, he said, “So that’s why you always look nice!” :-)

Last month, we met a middle-aged woman who wears heavy, electric-blue eyeliner. Paul told me how much he disliked the look and asked me if I would please never wear eyeliner. I told him that, um, I use eyeliner every day, but it’s a soft brown that I blend carefully. Once again, he was amazed.
