    @goldenlockets:  I would say it was probably about six months, give or take a month. It was quite a while.

    About a year into dating, lol. We didn’t live together, but even when we spent nights together, I would get up before him just to put even a little bit on.

    I wear makeup every day, so it was probably around 4-5 months before he saw me without makeup.  Only because there wasn’t a day during that time that I wasn’t going to put it on anyways.  When he saw me without makeup I for sure thought he would say something, or at least notice something was missing.  He literally didn’t even realize and to this day says he can’t tell much of a difference, only that my eyes look kind of sleepy without mascara.

    A few weeks. We got into a car accident and I had to leave in an ambulance. Nothing to worry about though, but since I hurt my head during the accident, they wanted to make sure I did not have a concussion or anything, so they brought me straight to the ER. So my boyfriend, whom I’ve been dating for 3 weeks only, had this glorious vision of me with my mascara and makeup all over my face (it was raining and I was lying on a stretcher and it took several minutes before someone thought they might cover my face with their coat !), looking like shit after the accident because my neck and shoulder hurt and I had medication to take that induced sleep, which made me look like a zombie ! That day, I knew I loved that man, and I knew that man loved me and didn’t care about my makeup, he cared about me !

    Straight away. If I’m not going anywhere or only to do food shopping or something I don’t put make-up on. I like to give my face a break from it for two days if I can.

    My skin happened to look fabulous around the time we got together so I think he first saw me without makeup about a week into our relationship.

    Now we’ve been together for 2.5 years but I still run to the bathroom and apply concealer to hide those unsightly zits when they make an appearance! lol He’s amused by it, says we’re definitely past that stage of our relationship and that I look beautiful to him no matter what. Actually, he told me I looked better without make up. He must really love me! lol I explained to him that I’m very insecure about my skin because I had horrible acne in my teens and way into my twenties so he gets why I do that now.

    @goldenlockets:  Lol, hard to answer your poll. I have been with DH for 10 years (married almost 3 months) and I just started wearing makeup this past April. So, I didn’t wear any makeup when we starting dating. I have pretty good skin, but recently started wearing a light foundation, bronzer and eye mascara.

    @goldenlockets:  it was probably 3-4 months into our relationship. I am an all-the-time makeup wearer and am extremely self conscious of my acne-prone skin so I was worried to show him the “real” me but as other PPs said, DH thinks I’m beautiful either way and has never made me feel bad about it. I still wear makeup if we leave the apartment for any reason, but today for instance, I know we’re not going anywhere so I leave my face clean and give it a break when I can.

    I’m pretty sure day one. I don’t care if anyone sees me without make up. I’m comfortable with myself.
