I hardly ever wear makeup and when I do it's usually just lip gloss/ lipstick if it's a normal day, so chances are, the first time he sees me, I'll have less makeup on than the second time he sees me for a formal date. (assuming we initially met by chance, like normal people do) I don't know why I wear more make up on dates. Probably nervousness and habit. Something about being nervous and a first date makes me apply more makeup. No way I could go on a first date with NO makeup. It would just seem like I'm doing it wrong.

I've had guys tell me before that while they wouldn't lose interest in their girlfriend after they finally saw her without makeup . . . if they'd first met her and she wasn't wearing any makeup they probably wouldn't have given her a 2nd look or have been very interested in the first place.

Once they'd been dating for a while and they saw her with a naked face, they were already in love with everything about her, and the initial "OMG HOT!" reaction was no longer as necessary.

In my initial example, I forgot something that many men probably forget: early-morning puffiness. Things like eye bags - women seem to get that more easily than men do. Later in the day, without makeup, the face wouldn't be as drastically worse.
LOL, don't push it too hard. They will come after you, and I'm sure you know who they are . They don't care that you asked for guys only.

I've very rarely date women, and am rarely attracted to women, that wear much make up. Yes, even those that know how to do it right so you can't see it. So for me, I would say no.

Nasty teeth turn me off more though.


I don't really wear makeup by choice, and I think my healthy skin thanks me for it.

I get why Woman wear make up, men are very visual. A lot of celebrities look unrecognizable without makeup.
