a little accent with makeup is better than nothing at all imo. I don't like the "just woke up" look.

I think you mean "Real Men Prefer....."

If I can tell a woman is wearing make-up, then she is wearing too much.

Make-up usage is a sign of emotional instability.

Those women are lacking in self-esteem, are emotionally weak and typically high-maintenance. They will cause nothing but problems.

Women who don't wear make-up are confident and comfortable with the way they look; are emotionally stronger; and most likely independent or interdependent and that makes my John Thomas stand on end.

There's nothing wrong with sparingly applying make-up to accent or highlight facial features.

Preferring...

When it becomes a fact all men like that, because some don't, depending on the woman. 1 plain woman could fade into the background. Then when she primps up with the make-up, everyone thinks she's hot.

So really, some women aren't that attractive without make-up. So SOME women, not all, do use make-up to look more alluring toward men they're interested in. But then if the guy actually finds them attractive, they may be open to giving her a chance and coming to like her as a person, even after the make-up comes off. Rather than being written out from the get-go with the guy not ever seeing anything of her personality because the looks didn't sell.

The saying "Good looks get you in the door." Same in terms of wanting to look attractive for some. If they feel they're ugly, they won't even get near the door lol or will have it slammed in their face.

But many women don't give a crap what men want. They wear the make-up because they want to, and like the look. Like a guy who may like a certain style or look. Maybe the guy loves the tattooed look and has them all over his body. That's his interests.

Some women need make up, but still not a lot or nothing overly noticeable.

And you would be wrong. I meant exactly what I said, and said exactly what I meant.

Keep in mind this is a standard YOU hold, but it is by no means universal. It's real to you, irrelevant to the rest of us.

I know plenty of examples where the opposite is true as well. Some of the most timid, least confident women I've known used no makeup at all. You are making a lot of assumptions that are easily debunked. Maybe you should look in your drawer for a brush that is not quite as broad.

Let me sum up this thread:

I'm dating a woman but I think she wears too much makeup so I'm going to stop seeing her.

Done.

Oh your level of not understanding goes way beyond that. Men are all over the place with what they like, what they don't, and everything else. Its pure idiocy to make the statement you made in the post heading

Dont agree with this at all. Ill stand by my stance that most men prefer curves as opposed to skinny runway models, and natural look as opposed to the over done / noticeable make up look.
