Do you think make-up is attractive or do you prefer the natural look?

I'm one of those that have never seen a great skin day and can't seem to find a good balance between the two.

  • Depends. If the make up looks caked on it's just not attractive. I prefer the more natural more subtle look.

  • I love makeup applied properly. I just cannot do it properly and do not have the time.

  • I'm a Smashbox make up artist, so yes I love make up. I know it's potential, and how amazing someone can look on a very special day, or for a photo shoot. Lot's of people don't wear make up just because they don't know how to put it on, or what to use.

  • foundation to cover up blemishes and redness and lip gloss and eye liner to make you look better. No make up is great for the beach , the summer but as a whole does not look good, makes you washed out........regardless how beautiful unless you have a tan.

  • I think natural looking make up is good. I wear foundation on my eyes, eyeliner, very nutural eyeshadow and mascara. I feel good when I actually put it on, but I dont' really think it stands out.

  • Makeup is supposed to enhance what's already there, not be piled on so you look like a clown. I prefer a more natural look with just a touch of makeup to enhance the person's best feature. And it should be applied properly; most women do not know the basic rules of application!
