    A lot of guys even don't realise how women look without makeup given that most girls do wear it. I think most would prefer natural makeup over none
    That's because women self-impose the idea that they are pressured/expected to wear makeup.

    Are you suggesting that women look worse without makeup?

    girls are kind of expected to wear it :lol:
    I've never really understood that tbh. The majority guys certainly don't expect girls to wear it and I can find no logical reason as to why girls would expect other girls to wear it. Don't get how it works at all, maybe I'm missing something obvious...

    No, but guys are more likely to think that because most women do wear it. So women are kind of "competing" against women who do wear it all the time. Retired_Messiah

    Guys (at least in Sweden) are often shocked if they see pictures of celebrities without makeup, and these are women who can afford the best skincare etc.

    It is uncanny, but now you have been told it once more.

    I was aiming for a Brad Pitt look but Nigel Farage will have to do.

    That's probably got more to do with the facts that these celebs have been wearing make-up allatime and look different with it off. If they never wore it in the first place you wouldn't have the shock.

    Swedish women from my experience are generally very beautiful, and pretty fun too. But these are celebrities. Anybody with half a brain know that celebrities are not representative of normal human beings.

    I really apologize to bring them up, but the Kardashians for example.

    We are a weird country too

    Well even if you showed a guy a normal girl without makeup and with natural done makeup surely most would choose the latter?

    The Kardashians are really extreme haha

    Celebs do wear a lot

    But what about my other point, that if women are not wearing it then it is harder for them to "compete" with women who do

    Attractiveness is subjective, you don't need to "compete".

    Anything excessive makeup worn in moderation is far more attractive.
    Sarcasm, please?

    And contouring??

    I love neat eyebrows, eyeliner, big eyelashes and a dark sophisticated lip.
    Not a fan of highlighting or contouring but it's still cool.

    I suffer from quite bad under eye circles even though I'm only 15. I think it's genetics. People have said to me what's wrong with your eyes and why are they all veiny? All though it was quite hurtful at the time, I just told them - Nothing, I just genetically have darker under-eye circles.

    So I wear make-up to cover them up.

    Green counteracts red, since they are opposites on the colour wheel. So I put on green concealer, then a concealer which is a shade lighter then my actual skin tone (brightness) and then a bit of eyeliner/mascara.

    And that's the make-up I wear. I wear this when I'm at school and if I'm going out. I don't wear make-up in the house or if I'm just popping to shops for a little while.

    People will say make-up is pointless and girls/boys look better without it, but the IMO, make-up has two purposes - 1. to enhance your looks and 2. It's an art.

    Any makeup or no makeups nice. But tbh a winged eyeliner sharp enough to stab a hoe looks nice on everyone so

    Only thing I don't like is when you get that odd girl being like "I don't wear makeup ew" ok here is ur medal u can leave now
