I am in the "No makeup" group
As a male, while I can appreciate the difference between having make up on and not, make-up is not the end all be all of my beauty standards, especially if I am already enamored of the person themselves. with regards to the face, I find myself more physically attracted to certain features, although I'll be damned if I could put words forth to describe what it is. A certain set of eyes, or cheekbone structure, or a turn of the nose. I'm not sure. I tend more towards cute or kawaii than to beauty.Let me start by saying that this is a lighthearted post; I'm happily married and not looking for some nefarious motives behind my husband's opinion. I just want to hear some male perspectives.
My husband claims that he thinks I look just as good without makeup as with. I don't. Trust me, I do NOT. If I wasn't trying to remain anonymous, I would post pics of before and after. Case in point, I had a coworker (I worked with kids) years ago tell me one day that she would watch my class for 5 minutes so that I could go put on some makeup, so I didn't scare the children; apparently, the color drains out of my face when I get tired and I look sickly. (She was a good friend, and we had one another's backs, do she wasn't being snarky.)
Perhaps my husband is unusual, perhaps he's stretching the truth in order to be kind, or perhaps all of our years together have blinded him to my looks. 🤣 I enjoy wearing makeup and feel better when I do (though sometimes I just don't feel like it). But I'm genuinely curious what men think about women wearing makeup, or if they think of it at all.
I've heard it said that women wear makeup for other women. Men, what say you? Do you prefer a woman who is made up? What about if you're dating? Does it matter if you've known the woman or been married for a long time? Is there a limit to what kinds of makeup looks attractive, or do you have no idea what I'm talking about it? 😂
And while we're on the topic of appearance, my husband tells me to do whatever I like best with my hair, but he prefers it longer. He claims most men feel this way, and this has been my experience. Would you say that's how most men think? I've seen more than one guy be enamored with damaged, frizzy, long hair over short, healthy hair. Is this a guy thing, or is it just the men I socialize with?
Thank you in advance for a peak inside the male mind.
Note the woman needs to look good with no makeup. My mom looked like crap with no makeup with huge dark circles under her eyes (probably because of me). For her it was a big improvement.Well, colored me surprised!! Thank you for your responses. Not what I was expecting. 🤣
Your post gave me a laugh. Still, you need to trust him on this. Even if you don't think so yourself, trust that he does.My husband claims that he thinks I look just as good without makeup as with.
Wouldn't matter for me... If I'm not attracted to her without makeup, I won't be attracted to her with it either.I suspect it’s largely a matter of whether or not she needs it…
When we say we like women with nothing on...Well, colored me surprised!! Thank you for your responses. Not what I was expecting. 🤣
