Men Do Not Like Women Who Wear This


Wearing too much makeup is almost always a huge mistake. We all know that woman who cakes it on -- smokey eyes, red lips, and bronzer all at the same time. And we all know what we think of them (yuck), but it turns out, not only do you look a fool when you wear too much, you also look like a liar.

To make matters even worse, men don't dig you. It may be true that men might look at you for a one-night stand or you might get attention at a club, but in the long run, men do prefer women who wear less. It says they're more confident.

Like any "trick," makeup is false advertising. Your lips aren't that red, eyes not that shape, cheeks not that flushed, and skin tone not that even.

Like push-up bras and stiletto heels and any other item that makes us appear other than what we are, makeup IS a lie. No wonder people perceive us as liars!

A little bit of makeup goes a long way. Sure, even out the skin tone and use a little under-eye concealer, but to really cover the face in paint just seems unreasonable. And, as it turns out, it is unreasonable.

No man I've ever met would prefer a woman with a ton of makeup. In fact, many men say women are at their most attractive when they're a bit undone. So why do we waste all this time ladies? What's the point?

In my own house, my husband gets upset when I wear makeup and often is startled by it. "Why do you have all that crap on your face?" he will ask me when we're going out. It's a crass way of telling me I look prettier without it. A more natural look is just more appealing.

Stop lying! Start rocking your real bra size and height, showing off your real lip color and cheekbones rather than drawing them on. You will get more men and also be perceived as truthful. Big win!

Does your man like you in makeup?

Yes, my husband does. He will even request a certain color or finish. But really, I don't wear it for him, I wear it for me. It's a form of art to me, and I wear as little or as much as I want depending on how I feel. If I feel like indulging his request, I do. If I don't, I don't...and he understands.

Your husband sounds rather controlling to me. Sounds like he likes you unattractive so he doesn't have to be jealous.

And you sound catty. Why do you care what someone else chooses to put on their own face? Don't you  have better things to worry about?

Makeup is a lie? What, do these guys not know what makeup is or something. They can see it, same thing with heels. Plus i'm pretty sure most women who wear heels wear them cause they're cute, not to be taller. So far I haven't met a guy who didn't like heels, as long as they aren't ugly heels. And I have dated a guy who liked makeup. If dressing up makes a women happy then she should do it. It doesn't make them liars.

My husband says I look better without makeup, but he doesn't mind if I wear it. I used to only ever wear mascara, but since getting horrible acne during pregnancy, I'll now wear a little bit of foundation to cover the scars (which my husband understands).

I love love love wearing makeup and heels and a tight sexy dress when we go out, and it makes my fiancé go crazy waiting to get back home to our bedroom ;) what's wrong with getting all dressed up? I also think that guys who aren't into it must be kinda controlling.

No, I don't wear a lot of makeup.

However, when did makeup/ clothes/shoes become about what men like? Women should wear and dress for what is right for them. I don't see these type of dumb articles on articles that are targeted for men!!

I wear makeup for me not my for my bf. Somedays I wear more than others depending on the situation. Its no one's business how often or much makeup I wear. Its my face if I want to tattoo permanent eyeliner on its my choice (i wouldnt but its the point) If I dont get up in the morning get dressed, makeup & hair it effects my day. Of course I've had to cut my routine in half since I became a mom, which is fine by me :)

I've never worn makeup. Literally, I can tell you the 2 times I have worn it, ever. I'm 26. I understand it and why women wear it and think some women look great with it on. As for me... what you see is what you get. I don't think it's false advertising, I'm just too lazy to mess with it! haha! So whether men like me better with or without... well, there's just no telling, but they've never had any issues with my looks. :)

My makeup routine in the morning is about 5 minutes. A little powder to even the face, bronzer, minimal eyeliner and mascara. I straighten my hair and takes about 15 minutes. But please PLEASE don't take my push up bra and stilettos and wedges! There are some things a woman can't live without lol

I even like it when my husband wears make-up...Probably...a goth...thing...But I do think whether you wear make-up or not is part of an outer artistic expression. Some people will love it. Others don't care for it. But that goes with just about anything tailored to an individual. I like my make-up. I like playing with looks, and sometimes I go much lighter or nearly nude-faced, and most people run with a wide variety of looks...And Idk about the husband situation. The only guy who ever insisted I not wear make-up was emotionally abusive and over-controlling (as in, don't wear that, you're calling attention to yourself). May not be your situation, but that attitude wouldn't be real well recieved for me...

i agree past boyfriends have preferred me without makeup however i dont think wearing a ton of makeup can perceive you as a liar..i am an aspring makeup artist i use makeup to express myself..contrary to belief makeup is an art not any female can take colors and blend them effortlessly and transform her face and create a masterpiece..i like to say my face is my canvas lol..not all females wear makeup to conceal their natural is just fun..and girls just want to have fun lol
