Am I the only male out there that doesn't like women who wear makeup? I saw the plastic surgery thread and I got to thinking...

I really detest makeup-- especially as a woman wears more and more of it. I feel people have a natural beauty and they should embrace it. I hate seeing women who wear pounds of it on their face or breasts (to make them look bigger, evidently this is a big thing now)... I don't like the idea that people want to hide their "imperfections".

I understand why women wear makeup, but I don't think they should feel they have to.

Further, are there any women out there that don't like wearing makeup but feel they have to?

NB: To be fair, I did have and want braces, but I feel that was more of a medically relevant necessity rather than cosmetic (just like reconstructive surgery, in my book is okay, but cosmetic surgery is not).

I don't dislike women who wear makeup, as I can understand why someone would wear it- just don't like it when it's obviously caked on. Usually looks kinda bad that way-though some people may not be able to prevent that either.

minimal if possible, if not- that's fine too.

Guys like women that are pretty. It does not matter if they wear make up or not. It's better if they are pretty and don't where a lot, because at some point you are going to see them without, and you'd like it to not be shocking.

I don't like it. Especially lip stick.. I hate kissing a woman with lip stick and to me it's nasty to see it on the rim of a cup. I say be natural..

I can't imagine the pressure women must have when it comes to looks...

Some make up is OK, but it is not necessary for me to find a woman beautiful.

My SO doesn't like make-up. He's okay with it if it looks fresh and natural, but he prefers none at all.

Remember that not everyone can carry off that ''natural beauty'' part I don't always look great without makeup but I do run out with just good moisturiser slapped on. Well no one so far has died from looking at me - I think

It's funny, because women who put on more 'natural' looking makeup are oftentimes wearing the same amount that a very made up woman is wearing they're just better at applying it.

I don't wear makeup, except for a bit to define my eyebrows. I have found, however, that men do treat me better when I do wear makeup. The prettier oh are as a woman, the better you are treated. When I don't wear makeup I'm virtually ignored.
