Women Wait To Go Makeup-Free In Front Of Men
The average wait is four weeks
And they're not alone. A new study of 2,000 women found that on average, women wait four weeks and one day before they let a guy see them without makeup on. And that's not all. A third of women surveyed were convinced that if they let a guy see them without makeup too soon the relationship would have failed. Half said that going makeup-free made them worry their partner would find them unattractive. and 60 percent admitted that they reapplied makeup during dates to that their partners didn't see them without it.

Women copped to similarly not wanting their bosses or coworkers to see them without makeup, either. It makes sense: "It does take a while for women to feel comfortable with a new partner and makeup can act as a shield for many females," said Superdrug spokeswoman Sarah Sharp."The research indicates that for many women wearing make-up isn't just a way of looking attractive, it's much more than that, it's a way to be confident and project an image."
