A U.K. study showed respondents photos of women in various stages of makeup application and found that men preferred the images with less makeup.

I wear makeup for myself. Not for boys. I hear guys say, "Oooh! I like it better when you don't wear make up," or "You look better without all that shit on your face" but I'm not really doing it to impress y'all. I could wear the brightest colors and I wouldn't care what you think.
So they showed pictures of the women with no make up next to a picture of them with make up? So then guys will be able to visually tell that in the other picture they have make up on. Most guys don't like the idea of a woman putting on make up to look good. So of course they are going to pick the no make up one. Other studies show that guys like natural make up.
I wear makeup to make my enemies feel inferior because I know that is where their weaknesses lie. That may be petty, but I'm a naturally fiery person. I don't, however, wear makeup to impress men. Why would makeup impress them anyway?!
What's really sad is to heavy make up on young girls. This supposedly to look "older" and "sexier". Then you have the women who are older trying to appear "younger" by piling on tons of eye makeup and heavy lipstick. Fake or black nails, fake boobs, fake hair, etc. It's a sad commentary on our current culture when so many girls/women feel the need to false advertise just to validate themselves. Women have taken a giant leap backward to becoming nothing but objects to be judged by the way that they look. They feel "invisible" unless they can turn heads whether they have a significant other or not.
For those who say "go for it ladies, who cares what men think?" Are you honestly trying to say that these women are wearing makeup and promoting their phoniness for the benefit of themselves? That if men did not exist that they would cake it on and parade around in their clownish/revealing outfits ANYWAY? Yeah, right.
+Orchid B. I find absolutely nothing wrong with women/teens wearing make-up, don't get me wrong. It's just that make up should not be the first thing that someone notices about someone's appearance. It should enhance a person's feature's not detract. I'm sure that there are plenty of of guys that think that less is more (sexy) when it comes to makeup. 🙂
+Valerie H I've watched other make up study videos, the caked on noticeable look seems to signal to men, sexual availability. One study was done where a girl put 3 pictures on a hook up dating site. The picture where she had caked on make up she got more sexual comments from men. Another study was done that men are more likely to approach a woman at a bar when her make up is noticeable.
quangluu96 makeup is meant to empower not make you feel insecure. Not choosing to wear makeup is a personal preference for each individual. Ask yourself this. Why do you think Avon company promote their products to raise awareness for women diagnosed or living with breast cancer?
I have been telling women for decades that *light to no make up* is much more attractive. I have lived all over the US and have seen this in all parts of the US.
Also women, go light on perfume too. Too heavy on perfume is a super turn off. I would rather smell BO than heavy perfume.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
