    Men will look better in natural.

    Men are looked at for genetic masculinity / testosterone:  strength, and square jaws--traits related to physical ability to feed and protect a family.  Attractive women got to chose their mates.

    Men can afford to look a bit rough, have a few wrinkles here and there, facial hair, whatever. It just makes them look more manly. Which is attractive to women but not on women. Men don't even look good with makeup unless it's very subtly done (read: invisible) otherwise it just looks too feminine.

    Same reason women look okay without makeup.  If a girl needs makeup to be good looking, she ain't good looking.

    Because makeup doesn't affect their vision.

    They don't always. Some men would look a bit better with certain flaws covered, and could look really hot with makeup (think Bowie). Some guys don't need it, just like some women just don't. If they want to wear it they can and if not that's fine too. It's just a form of grooming based on social norms.

    Only because that is the custom and what we are used to.

    Imagine if women never wore makeup, and suddenly one did.  She would look ridiculous compared with all other women because no one was accustomed to that look.

    For women, a touch of eye liner here, and a spot of lippy etc there do no harm and can indeed enhance your looks.

    Where it goes wrong is when it is applied like polyfilla and dulux emulsion paint..

    EVERYONE of us not only "look okay without makeup", we ALL do & always did.  Understand that the stuff is only made to make $ from you.  It serves only to deceive & distort.  In ancient times, the prime users of makeup were prostitutes. 

    "ronh" :  EXACTLY, so why make up, save so some corporations can get rich off women they turn into fashion victims?

    Women do too if they're attractive.
