The lipstick, the eyeliner, the blush, the mascara, the foundation, the eyeshadow, the eyebrow pencil, the concealer, the primer, the bronzer, the contour, the highlights, the works. Did I miss anything? Makeup is so complicated. There are just too many things to keep track of. It’s so hard having to be a woman.
You have to remember a lot of this stuff and your efforts don’t always pay off. So many girls will go overboard with their makeup to the point that men will think it’s tacky. Sure, girls shouldn’t be putting makeup on just because they want to impress guys. But at the end of the day, how a girl wears her makeup says a lot about her personality. And a guy is going to have a few impressions of a girl depending on how she wears her makeup.
If you happen to be a girl who is looking to win over the affections of a guy, then you need to make sure that you take into consideration what guys think about makeup. Sometimes, it’s just too much. Sometimes, it’s just plainly overboard. Be reasonable. Do you really need 30 different items that you need to put on your face in the morning as you prepare to leave the house? Sure, you can do it for yourself. But if you’re really interested in getting to know a guy’s perspective on things, then this is the article for you.
But before we go any further, it’s important to note that this is not a generalization for ALL men. There will be some guys out there who would want their girls to wear makeup. But there will also be some men out there who would rather have their women bare-faced. At the end of the day, you just have to stay true to who you are. You always have to stay genuine and sincere. And without much further ado, here are a few things that come to a guy’s mind when he sees you without your makeup.
1. So that is what she truly looks like.
Some men will be relieved to finally see what you TRULY look like underneath the layers of makeup that you put on yourself on a consistent basis.
2. That’s why she wears so much makeup.
Some men are going to come to the realization that you really do need make up, after all. They will realize that you have so many problems on your face that need to be hidden.
3. I hope she would put it back on.
Some men won’t say it outright – but they will think to themselves just how much they don’t like your face without makeup. They will secretly wish to themselves that you would put your makeup back on.
4. She finally feels comfortable with being herself.
Some men will breathe a sigh of relief whenever you choose to stop wearing makeup in front of them. They will take this as a sign that you are finally comfortable with them.
5. What’s the point of even wearing all that makeup?
Some men are going to be so taken aback by how beautiful you are without makeup that they will wonder why you even bother to wear makeup in the first place. They will take one look at you and they will be enamored by your natural unsullied beauty.
6. Maybe she doesn’t want to impress me after all.
The moment you stop wearing makeup, a guy might assume that you’re done putting in the effort with him. He might think that you’re no longer willing to try to impress him. He might think that his opinion of you wouldn’t matter after all.
7. I don’t want to be seen with a girl like her.
Some men will be so superficial to the point that they wouldn’t want to associate themselves to a girl who doesn’t wear makeup. If you are unlucky enough to have a guy tell you this, just leave him. He’s not a guy who is worth being with anyway.
8. Finally… she’s done with makeup.
This is a common thought that might come to a guy who is just sick of makeup. He might be so tired of seeing you with all of that paint on your face. And he will exhibit relief whenever you take all of that makeup off.
9. I wonder what else about her is fake.
Once he sees your face bare without all of the flashy artificial enhancements, he’s going to see a side of you he has never seen before – the real side. And sometimes, he’s going to end up wondering what else about you might be fake and inauthentic.
10. Maybe she has self-esteem issues.
A lot of guys are going to think that you have some serious self-esteem issues once he sees you without your makeup. He will think that you usually just wear makeup to hide a lot of the things that you are feeling insecure and unsafe about.
