Would You Go On Tinder Without Make Up?

By  | 

This is a question I would ask anyone even if they’re not on Tinder. Majority would answer no but one woman did this as an experiment and read below to find out her results!

Meet Alexa Mitchell. She’s a Beauty Vlogger from New Mexico and goes by the name of Maicangirl on Instagram. She’s been vlogging since 2011 about her life and beauty/hair/workout tips.

Alexa decided to see how many matches she would attract on Tinder without any make up on.

Alexa uploaded 3 natural selfies onto her Tinder profile.

This Woman Went Makeup-Free On Tinder To See How Guys Would Respond

Alexa swiped right on Tinder which means she’s interested in the guys she swiped to see if they swipe back.

After 5 hours, Alexa had 16 matches! This was with her natural 2 photos (untouched)

She then did the same thing again but with 3 photos (the same 3 she used untouched for her natural look) and used the app Relook to retouch them. This got rid of any blemishes on her face and even whitened her teeth!

Alexa again swiped 100 times and the results were different! She received 73 matches this time.

“The edited pictures caused a much more enthusiastic response than my natural head shots did” She said.

Alexa thought she would receive less matches for the natural selfies so 16 was a shock to her.

“I feel like the experiment shows that men who use dating apps like Tinder are more responsive to a cleaner, more flawless appearance, not necessarily heavier makeup and exaggerated features,” she said

Whilst doing this experiment, Alexa vlogged about it on her Youtube channel.

What are your thoughts on being natural and having no make up on for your Tinder profile pics?

At least you’re showing the world the true you and not hiding behind all the make up you’re wearing. This shows your natural beauty and if they don’t like, their loss!
