From all my experience it is similar to the men preferring curves over the slim runway model look.

However, I guess you are free to think otherwise
Is there a reason an option for "a nice balance" was left off?

I am sorry but I like "simple" women. Not in anyway looking for some high maintenance chick that cakes on makeup.

If that makes me shallow so be it.

do you have a pic or example of "nice balance".

nice balance to me is wearing makeup but very tastefully and blended in to where one can not hardly notice it.

I've never been a big fan of women with overdone makeup, especially eyeshadow/mascara. I spent a lot of time outdoors and active and it would've been impractical for any woman I was with to do much more than basic makeup.

But it seems obvious to me that "men" as a group don't seem to particularly be all that discerning. Wasn't Pamela Anderson wildly popular for a couple of decades? Seems other "assets" trump natural look - for a lot of guys, a woman could probably use a paint roller to apply makeup if she had a D cup.

"Nice balance" means something different to everyone. My point was that you offer a poll between one extreme or the other. The use of makeup doesn't have to be an issue of "too much"(itself a subjective judgment) or "not at all." There are many points in between.

Gave you reps. I'm with you. I do/wear what I 'effin want, and do it to please MYSELF! And guess what - I get a LOT of compliments! So if someone doesn't like it, they can keep it to themselves, it is THEIR problem!

To some, "natural" might mean "zero".

Exactly. "Natural" to me conveys no makeup at all. OP should define his terms better if he wants to avoid confusion.

Natural is simply the appearance of no - little makeup or en essence not very noticeable. At least that has always been my understanding of it.

I will throw up some pics soon for visuals.
