I don't really think they have to know (and they definitely don't haha.) But I think most men know when a girl is wearing makeup at least. If you do the "natural" makeup look and they can't tell, well, I'd say good on your part! Guys can definitely see a cake face though, and know when a girl has something on her eyes.
To not know that the Kim Kardashian is wearing makeup would be an extreme case of not having a clue haha.
But just on the whole makeup thing, I love this thread! Wish more girls would come in here, I think it's fun.
As for me, I don't really wear makeup on a day to day anymore, but if anything it's something like this (I'm on the right):
(I consider not using this pic hahahaha, but I don't take selfies on a day to day so this is it)
Just eyeliner on the top and some mascara, usually both a dark brown vs black (Loreal voluminous eyeliner pencil being my favorite). Moisturizer (st. ives collagen in the tub), spf, and sometimes blush if I'm sickly looking, but no foundation. Most times I'll just do mascara though, since it's a life saver. My eyes look pretty dark even though they're green and my lashes are thick but not incredibly long so mascara kind of just pulls it all out so they don't look like beads on my face.
For my work though I'm sort of "required" to step it up a bit, so:
(This one I did crop since my coworker was being terrible)
Which is dark, thicker eyeliner on top (gel/liquid, I use Revlon Colorstay liquid a lot), eyeliner on the waterline, usually a pink or red lip, foundation (without spf because of pictures, I like Bourjois or Dior Airflash, obviously Dior being very expensive so only for occasions), blush (bourjois again), plum/dark brown eyeshadow, smokey, filled in eyebrows (I do this on a day to day too since groomed brows automatically tighten up everything. I use the elf eyebrow kit) and fake eyelashes on the occasion too. The pic above is actually more mild than some of the makeup I'll do.
Some other makeup things I love:
Big Fattie Mascara (I pretty much like most mascara I've tried though haha)
Lorac Unzipped Palette (thuuuu besstt)
Loreal True Match Lumi Foundation
Nyx Jumbo pencils
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
yayyay for makeup!
