Question answered: If women stopped wearing make-up, wouldn't men find them just as beautiful?
I’ve had conversations about this topic with many people—both men and women—and I generally find that people fall into one of two categories regarding the use of makeup. They are either very much in favor of it, or they believe that “natural is better”.
Men especially fall into the latter category. Mature women seem to as well.
The funny thing is that men can’t often tell how much makeup a woman is wearing unless they’re confronted with before and after photos.
I would bet that a number of guys like Taylor Swift’s look (shown above) without any makeup.
Here are a couple more so you can decide for yourself if the natural-faced women are just as beautiful as they are when wearing makeup.
Above: Cara Delevingne from Victoria's Secret. You tell me—better or worse with noticeable makeup? I think her appearance is more striking on the right, but more approachable looking on the left.
Does her makeup improve her appearance? Some will say yes (including me) while others will strongly disagree. How do you feel about it?
Here’s another one. Better or worse with makeup?
Above: Jennifer Lopez with and without makeup. She’s wearing a LOT of makeup in the photo on the right.
Gwyneth Paltrow with and without makeup. I personally like her look better without makeup.
EDIT: Thanks for all the comments guys! I’ve added some new photos for you!
