I had to explain this to a guy when I was in highschool. He pretty much told me He’d find me more attractive if I didn’t wear any makeup at all.
See above for my response.
Also the “girls look better when they’re ~natural~” is usually total bullshit. They want girls to LOOK natural, but not BE natural. Or to be “effortlessly flawless”. They want us to not HAVE to try. If we try, we’re fake. If we don’t try but ‘should’ we’re lazy/gross/etc. If we try but put on obvious make-up, we’re “trying too hard” and should “look more natural”.
When it comes to make-up and “trying to impress boys” there is LITERALLY no way to win. So make-up should never be for them unless they’re the ones wearing it.
