Putting on eyeliner, mascara, foundation and lipstick is part of the daily beauty routine for millions of women.
But many are being heavy-handed with the contents of their cosmetics bag in the mistaken belief that itís what men want.

Most men are ignorant in how women use makeup. 95% of women would look pretty nasty without makeup, look how even beautiful models post pics of themselves with no makeup and its shocking how bad they look.

I would go so far as to say that men think the makeup IS the natural look!

Lucky for me, I don't wear makeup for men. So I don't have to worry about what they think.

My husband doesn't like so much women who do not wear any makeup as he thinks they don't know how to fix themselves and are not so attractive.

I don't think it said anywhere that men prefer no make up, just more natural looking make up over heavy makeup.

I don't think the "natural look" means barefaced and it wasn't stated that way in the article.

Of course, the photo with the non-natural look features hideous makeup; makeup artists everywhere would be gagging at that makeup job. There is well-done makeup that is not the natural look, and some men may even like it.

I regularly get compliments when I wear red lipstick, and on the occasion I wear eyeshadow, I notice an increase in male attention (and I don't wear it for that reason, or else I'd wear it more). I don't look garish like the photo in that article though.

The natural look is fine too, but it's not the only makeup look that can be attractive and not garish.

I wear make up because it enhances my beauty.
I must say that most men are not real attractive so it goes both ways...we just get to cover up imperfections!
Sorry boys
