Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?

Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?

If you’ve been reading this blog lately, you know that I’ve been practicing going sans makeup, save for lipstick.

In my last post, I described a man I’d been chatting with on Happn, and how he told me he had a redhead fetish because us lack-of-melaniners tend to look more natural in our overdone makeup world. We planned to meet on Wednesday.

So what did I do?

I wore dark black mascara, purple eyeliner and bright pink lipstick. Because I’m a rebel! And I wondered what he’d really think of me then. And I had a feeling that as much as he said that, he was the River North, entrepreneur type of “made up” guy.

After a really odd date — I couldn’t tell whether or not he liked me at all, and his social skills seemed sub-par, he kissed me. It was so unexpected — and to be honest, unwanted…and well, wet. He told me we’d “hang again”, but it’s Friday, and he hasn’t been in touch (for which I’m glad).

Based on the sloppy kiss, I guess he still found me attractive with my unnaturally sable eyelashes.

  • Most men don't care about the woman's makeup. The one in the picture looks like Elvira, except for the dyed hair.

    I thought redheads wanted to show off their freckles.

  • In reply to jack:

    Haha, that's Christina Aguilera believe it or not.

    We do...and we still can, even with 3 coats of mascara.

  • In reply to thegingerphiles:

    Darn. I still think it looks like Lilith Sternin Crane.

  • If you're into redheads, as I AM, make-up is entirely unnecessary. Their natural beauty is enough for ME!!

  • In reply to HHH Is My Hero:

    Glad to hear it.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
