Im the kind of girl who never starts outside without a look full of makeup. No matter where Im running Duane Reade, treading my puppies, a appointment I need to have at least one coat of footing and some eyeliner on.

Its not that I dont like the course I look without makeup, it exactly facilitates me feel more self-confident. Im more likely to approach beings if I have my bronzer and mascara to back me up. I experience prettier and less naked than I do without it.

Is that so bad?

Naturally, I would never even dream of going on a appointment sans makeup. The merely believed to be making a first impression on someone without my signature winged liner maniacs me out more than anything.

My theory, like Amy Schumer’s, is thateven people who claim they “don’t care about makeup” still actuallyprefer it.

Going all-natural in front of a person I could potentially like was a foreign theory for me. Which is certainly why I had to do it.

The Experiment:

In the appoint of discipline, I moved two profiles on the battleground of all things science-related: Tinder. I took four selfies, two during the course of its night and two in the morning in natural lighter. No filters allowed.

The two charts were the same. I did I was a native New Yorker, I desired traditional basic bitch acts( acai bowl and Bath And Body Works candles, duh) and my potion of option was Riesling. In the words of my ultra-kind coworker: Even I wouldnt swipe right on you.”

Using her paroles as a vote of confidence, I swiped away. One hundred indiscriminate swipes for 100 servicemen. I waited one hour and remained track of the pairs and messages.

Exhibit A: Makeup-free

Exhibit B: Makeup

The most swipes went todrumroll, pleasethe makeup selfie!

Surprise, bombshell, right?

The figures were shocking: 47 competitors to 17.

To be honest, this kind of constituted me angry. Most of the three men I know be they ex-boyfriends, guy sidekicks or even ones Ive dated held their favorite look for a girl is all natural. Well, clearly thats bulls* t because I went more than twice as many right swipes on photos with makeup.

There were plenty of noteworthy letters, too.

This guy was aesthetic as f* ck:

This guy was squandering NO duration:

Maybe you shouldn’t go to Starbucks anymore, Larry:

Does “accommodate” include free Riesling though?

Tinder: the new Google.

In my experience, husbands like makeup, they just wishes to profess its not there. Sure, some guys are down for the arouse up like this seem, but mainly they were just about the dark lipstick and bold winged liner.

Its not like Im the first person to attempt this experiment. Beauty blogger Alexa Mitchell attained two same charts, one with her look photoshopped and one go alone. Guess which face prevailed out? The one with all the imperfections magically erased off.

Gentlemen, own up to it. You like flawless complexions, a heavier brow and a flirty wing. The dark lipstick might get us winces from you in real life, but it looks amazing in photos.

The amusing percentage is, all the makeup I had on examined utterly ruinous in real life. I had aton of bronzer and even more mascara layered on. I didnt like how I gazed, but I suspect those who swiped right did.

Looks like I’m not was just about to trench my eyeliner anytime soon.
