Ok i was looking in the mirror the other day and i noticed i was breaking out :O, yuk. But no1 but me and my family see my break outs because when i go out i put makeup on and hide the imperfections from my SO and everyone els . Then i thought what if So saw me like this ? He’d so think i look horrible, what about when i live with him ?! What about when i wake up with him face to face and i have no time to touch up, and everything is just there :(!!
I freaked out.
SO. . .
Obviously we ALL have imperfections such as break outs or freckles or dark spots ect, some more than others and we all take care if it one way or another, but what happens when you have to take care of all that infront of SO?
I’m just wondering for the bees who live with their SO, how do you hmm. . . whats the right word, i guess cope ? lol
Does he say anything like” wow i never seen you like this “
DO you ever notice he notices ? lol
**FYi** i dont put on loads of makeup just concealer which i need ! and some cover up on the blemishes , and you all know that all makes a BIG difference!
Love you guys ! <3

I think if a guy ever made a comment like, “wow I’ve never seen you like this” about my makeup-free face, I’d be seriously annoyed. I’ve NEVER had a guy make any kind of comment about any of my natural imperfections. Honestly, I think they kind of like them. It’s very intimate for them to see your un-made-up self. EVen if I wake up with crust in my eyelashes and drool on my face, DH goes right in for the kiss, every time. Guys don’t look perfect all the time, either, btw! 🙂

Since I’ve moved in with my FI, I’ve found I’m wearing makeup at home less and less (not working probably has a bit to do with that). I’m super self-conscious about my skin, but he prefers me without makeup. I still break out all the time at 37, but it doesn’t seem to phase him.
I had my makeup airbrushed at a bridal show and I thought it looked great. I came home and asked him if he liked it, and he said “you don’t look any different than normal.” No idea how to take that. 😉 I really think most men prefer their women to look natural.

i only wear make up if i’m going out of the house (unless i’m just walking the dog–that doesn’t require make up). even then i don’t wear a ton, just a little bit. so, yea. husband sees me without make up all the time, and he doesn’t care at all! i don’t think he even really notices.

I wear makeup about 4 to 5 times a YEAR….LOL. FI very much prefers the natural look and even when I wear makeup, he doesn’t like lots of it…which is good b/c neither do I. I plan to glam it up a bit for my wedding but that’s it.

After 7 yrs, DH has seen me at my best & worst. I’m long past the stage of not wanting him to see me without makeup.

Ehhh we live together and wearing make up for him is not something I ever think/care about. I mean, I wear make up to work everyday and going out at night but the rest of the time he see’s me au-natural. And guess what? He loves me anyways. Even when I wake up with scary morning breath, drool on my face, and my hair looks like cousin IT.

My fiance is well aware of my skin care regimes and sees me pinching whiteheads and applying various creams to my face. And I pinch the pimples on his back. I guess our relationship is not as romantic anymore… but comfortable and happy!

My FI definitely prefers it when I’m not wearing any make up so I barely ever wear any at home. I have scared him a few times by putting on a clay mask or something.

As soon as I get home, I take off my makeup (that I wear to work), wash my face, put my hair up in a ponytail and change into tshirt/leggings/sweats/etc. If my husband had a fit over me not looking perfect all the time or commented on it negatively, he would have been kicked to the curb several years ago.

I go all natural 99.98% of the time.
If we are going out to an event, or it is a special occasion I will wear a little makeup, but nothing fancy.In fact, my partner pitches a fit when I “put my face on”, he doesn’t think I need to “improve” myself.
I really think that once you get to a certain point in a relationship the whole “mystery” of being made up fades — and that is as it should be, any guy that thinks every woman should look magazine perfect 100% of the time is delusional. I think that if there is a genuine relationship, imperfections are part of the whole package, it is about seeing the “whole you”–even the secret parts you won’t share with the rest of the world.

@LGenz: LOL I’ve done the same thing…why are people so uneasy about clay masks?!

My husband hates it when I wear a lot of makeup – when I would come home from makeup trials in the months leading up to our wedding he HATED how I looked. I wear a normal amount on most days (but not face makeup or heavy eyeliner), but don’t think twice about going bare on the weekends. However, I try not to let anyone see me without my eyelashes curled – that’s my vanity.

I wear makeup every day to work. I usually don’t wash my face until it’s bed time or later in the evening, but I have no problem hanging out with FI when I have a bare face. On the weekends I usually don’t put makeup on unless we’re going somewhere or having people over. If I get a big blemish on my forehead, chin, or elsewhere FI will go, “eww look at your third eye.” He’s only joking of course. He’d never say anything hurtful like that to me. We’re just silly like that I guess though.
I always live by that saying, “If he doesn’t love you at your worst than he doesn’t deserve you at your best.”

the boy hates when I wear ANY make up, which doesn’t bother me because then I dont have to take extra time to putting it on in the morning or taking it off at night. I don’t wear a lot of make to begin with, so even when/if we go out anywhere I just put on eye liner and mascara.
