16 Of The Cutest Things Guys Have Said About Makeup

Like most people, my personal relationship with the beauty-industrial complex is not an easy one. I wear makeup nearly every day and find that I prefer my face on the days that I have it on to the ones that I go without, which, in turn, makes me wonder if I am being held prisoner by an industry whose main goal is to convince me that I will never actually be as beautiful as I think I should be.

This is dramatic, probably, and I would love to say that it is not that deep, but I think it really is that deep–if there is one thing that I learned at liberal arts college, it is that anything is deep if you would like it to be–and the fact is that makeup, no matter how many female empowerment missives and “natural beauty”-affirming ideas that brands try to sell you, is a lot more complicated than it appears on the surface. If there is one makeup-based thing I am certain of, however, it is this: If there is a guy in your life who says that you should skip out on makeup because he prefers girl who don’t wear makeup is a guy that needs to be out of your life as soon as humanly possible.

One might think that guys who don’t wear makeup (some do!) and, thus, probably doesn’t actually understand it, would refrain from making commentary on it. But this is where you are wrong! Guys love to talk about makeup, whether that involves saying they only like girls who don’t wear any (gross), complimenting celebrities on magazine covers for not wearing any makeup (what?), which usually just reveals that they have no idea what it even is.

Some guys, however, have just the right idea about makeup. They might not understand it, but they don’t try to fight it–as might be one’s initial instinct when confronted with something they don’t understand–so they just kind of, like, admire it from a distance. It’s pretty adorable. So, check out these things that guys have said about makeup that are actually cute:
