Does Makeup Keep Guys Away

Group Therapy: Does My Makeup Keep Guys Away?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I don't wear anything too ostentatious. Mostly just foundation, blush, eyeliner (sometimes winged out for drama) and mascara. So nothing Snooki-eque or drag queen-esque (unless on special occasions haha).

I know this seems kind of stupid, but do you think guys are initially only attracted to "au natural" girls? You can read it in numerous magazines and blogs — the guys wanna see the "real" you BLAH BLAH BLAH . . . One of my guy friends recently joked that girls who wear makeup every day cannot be trusted and that they must be hiding something. Well I am, acne scarring, and I never plan to go outside the house without at least foundation on.

So, to what extent do you think this hinders my chances with future mates? By the way, I am 21 and in college.
