How much make-up do men really find attractive? Dating site discovers women with lipstick and blush are THREE TIMES more likely to be asked on a date
Men are three times more likely to ask a woman out online if she is wearing make-up in her dating profile picture, a new survey has discovered.
Zoosk, a dating site and app, analyzed 1,200 women’s profiles and found that these individuals were three times more likely to be messaged if they were wearing make-up including eye shadow, lipstick and blush.
The site’s male users appear to prefer eye make-up the most, as women who were pictured with painted lids received 139 percent more first messages than those who did not.
Lipstick followed a close second, as women received 119per cent more notes than those who were shown with a bare pout.
Cheeks, however, appear the least important, as women wearing blush or bronzer only received 24 percent more notes than those who did not.
But there are some parameters involved in men’s preference for make-up –mainly that it has to ‘look’ natural.
In surveying 1,800 male members, Zoosk found that 66per cent of them do not find dates who wear dark make-up attractive.
he same goes for red lipstick, as 57per cent of respondents found the color cosmetic to be an unattractive first-date choice.
In terms of hair, it seems that natural is always the way to go. Natural styles were preferred by 84per cent of respondents, over follicles that had been dyed an unearthly color.
A natural wave is also appreciated, as only 9per cent of men preferred pin-straight, flat ironed locks to those boasting some form of texture.
