the weather here in Chicago has been retarded and on the weekdays when I have nothing to do (just graduated school and no job! lol) I feel ZERO motivation to wear make-up like seriously ZERO! I also hate doing my hair now because im letting it grow out for the wedding and it is seriously getting on my nerves!
Anyway yesterday my my hunny decided to pick me up at 9 in the freakin morning and only gave me 15min to get ready…so as we were driving I told him half joking half serious that I was sorry I looked crappy and wasnt wearing any makeup. Then he goes to tell me about survey he heard on the radiod about how many girfriends/wives let their man see them without makeup and he said the answer was only 12%!!! I seriously doubt that but I dont know..am I the minority here? I am pretty sure most girlfriends wouldnt let thei man see them w/o makeup I was like that the first few years we were dating but now if I dont feel like wearing make up then I wont wear make up 🙂

He had to have heard that wrong of it was a poll of teenage girls LOL
I highly doubt 88% of woman go to bed with their makeup on.

Wow, that is insane! Well I am certainly in said 12%.

All the time. Especially in the summer, because I hardly ever wear makeup then!

I never wear makeup around the house. I don’t really even wear that much makeup when I go out.

I very rarely wear any make up so I voted all the time. Foundation on me creeps him out, I was worried because for the wedding I wanted to even out skin for pictures but luckily my sister did an amazing job with bare minerals at keeping it natural looking. People have tried before but that’s the only stuff I’ve been able to use that doesn’t make my skin feel like it’s going to itch off and doesn’t give him the heeby jeebies.

Ha, yes. I wear very sheer makeup to begin with, and if I wouldn’t wash it off, I’d have a face full of acne! So I would say that 50% of the time he is around me, I’m w/o makeup!

- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
Of course I let him see me without makeup. We’ve been living together for 4 years now.
I’d be really surprised if anyone on a wedding board still didn’t let their SO see them without makeup.
And I agree with Roxy. He must have heard wrong, or whoever he heard on the radio must have been wrong. I can’t believe that 88% of women don’t let their husbands see them bare-faced.

Wow.. I mean although I probably wear make-up EVERY DAY.. I do wash my face in the shower, or to go to sleep and dont always apply my make-up right after waking up. So my husband does see me without make-up a lot. I have heard about ladies that do not let their husbands see them without makeuo though. Also, when we were dating and not living together .. the first few times we stayed the night together somewhere I will admit I washed my face, eye make-up and just reapplied a little bit of powder

That’s insane…I can’t imagine not letting my FI see me without makeup. He likes me better that way (which I find strange, lol).

“If he cant handle me at my worst then why the hell would I let him handle me on my best”
ok I changed it a lot but Marilyn Monroe knew what she was talking about 😉

that survey seems really wrong. How can you avoid that? What about when you wake up, go to bed, go swimming, are sick, work out, shower, clean, etc etc? My FH saw me without makeup probably within a week of dating. He always tells me that he thinks i’m the prettiest when I’m not wearing any makeup and especially right when i wake up.

i cant believe that statistic… i’m a daily make-up wearer, but that’s usually at work, as soon as i get home, i wash my face workout get dinner goin shower and wash my face before bed… that’s ridiculous that ppl would try to hide behind makeup in a relationship…

I’m willing to bet that statistic was made up (har har).
My guy would rather that I NOT wear makeup, and I’m happy to oblige. I only wear it to dress up anyhow.
I did know a woman once who hopped out of bed every morning before her husband woke up to put on her makeup and brush her teeth, and then hopped back into bed with him so he would wake up to a freshly “made up” wife. Insane.

Umm, if my husband minded seeing me without make-up, I wouldn’t have married him. That statistic is BS to the max.
