    DH prefers me natural. I rarely wear makeup anyway (date nights, special events, Vegas, etc) and he usually can’t tell that I’m wearing it when I am.

    He doesn’t like it when it’s too heavy but is ok with softer tones. I had my makeup done for a wedding and it was so caked on it didn’t even look natural lol. Those are the things he doesn’t like.

    My husband recently told me that he prefers me without makeup, which works out fine because I wear it pretty infrequently (going out, special occasions, etc.)

    My FH compliments me on both, although he hates when I wear fake eyelashes (i loveeee them) sometimes he will see a colour lipstick and suggest that I should buy it, but other than that he doesn’t say much

    FH doesn’t care too much as long as it’s not too heavy. I wear foundation, concealer, powder, and eyeliner on a daily basis, so he’s used to that. I also discovered the Just Bitten Kissables by Revlon – which is the one lip color he likes because he can’t feel or taste it.

    Needless to say, I now have 4 of them.

    I like wearing makeup, so as long as he doesn’t hate it, I’ll keep wearing it. It’s a confidence thing, mostly, no matter how many times he tells me I don’t need it.

    DH does like me with makeup on, but then again… I like me with makeup on lol. I do wear it everyday and its something I have spent a long time practicing, playing with different products and researching what looks best for me. Sure, he loves me looking natural as well, but he appreciates the time I put into getting ready for him/the world. 

    He doesn’t like a lot of face makeup ( especially bronzer) or anything too overdone.

    DH said his favorite thing about me is that I do not wear makeup.

    DH likes me without makeup but he also likes me with my usual no-makeup makeup and my night out red lipstick and retro eyeliner (and all other variants).

    He used to hate red lipstick because it came off on him, so I copied my ex-girlfriend’s trick and started wearing the two-stage red lipstick that has to be removed with waterproof eye makeup remover.

    Now he loves red lipstick. He always loved the way it looked, just didn’t like wearing it after a kiss.

    He dosn’t hate it but he dosn’t like it either. Unless it is a lot of makeup, he is indifferent.

    He likes me best with fairly natural make-up: foundation to even out my skin-tone, a bit of bronzer, and lots of black mascara to open up my eyes. He doesn’t like heavy eye-shadow, and doesn’t like lip-stick or lip-gloss; which is fine because I hate the feel of them and rarely wear them.

    he prefers me barefaced, which is what I have 99% of the time. he notices immediately when I have makeup on and makes a face.

    If we’re going somewhere unexpectedly and I mention “oh, I have literally 0 makeup on my face” he’ll always say (like a good man) “You look beautiful no matter what”, but I don’t find that to be an actual measure of him liking me w/no makeup…however, when he spontaneously tells me I look gorgeous, or that he thinks I look super pretty that day, it’s always when I’m bare faced 🙂
