How soon is too soon to let a new boyfriend, in the words of Drake, see you in "sweatpants, hair tied, chillin' with no makeup on"? According to the Daily Mail, a new study reports that four weeks is too soon.

But four weeks, one day is when women begin to let their guard down. After four weeks, one day, women leave their travel-size makeup bags, Birchbox samples, and pragmatic clear containers at home and finally permit men to see them in all their makeup-free glory. This also marks a milestone in the relationship, when men realize that the "natural makeup" look they keep telling their girlfriends they like is very different than au naturel. It's a lightbulb moment, at which they finally understand why their girlfriends keep reading online "no makeup" makeup tutorials that require eight steps, including an illuminating under-eye concealer.
