    My husband totally likes it when I wear makeup. But I hate doing so. I mean, I LOVE doing makeup. I just hate waking up early the morning. So maybe that will change someday…. But on weekends, I looooove getting all dolled up!

    I wear my makeup very natural, and he likes that. He doesnt like heavy eye make up, like eyeliner, which is fine by me because I hate eyeliner too. For special occasions Ill add false lashes and natural colored eye shawdow with a bit of shimmer. Which he compliments me on. However he believes I dont need the make up to begin with.

    Unless I am going to the gym, I ALWAYS wear eyeliner/mascara. Its been a habit for a decade, and I prefer myself with it. He honestly is indifferent, but likes it alot when I do the eyeliner on the top lid, cats eye kind of thing.

    Plus, I have very light and sensitive skin, so I wear concealer when I need to, because red shows in my face in the winter, and Im self consious about it :/ It makes me look sick.

    He thinks I look lovely and fine without makeup of course… but he LOVES when I do big, bold, dark rock-n-roll eye makeup. Sometimes even when I think I look a bit silly he thinks it’s incredibly sexy.

    He doesn’t like the red lip though, which is sad because I adore it, and he HATES drawn on eyebrows, which is fine because I don’t think I could successfully do that anyway haha.

    I voted other.  I don’t think he notices/cares.  Haha.  I don’t wear makeup day-to-day.  And when I do it’s for me, not him.  He rarely says anything about it when I do either.

    He’s pretty much good with anything I do.  I don’t wear anything on days off when we’re just kicking around the house or running errends, I wear pretty natural make up mostly, but like to kick it up a few notches whenever we go out.  He likes to complain about getting lipstick on after kissing me sometimes, but he secretly loves it.  He loves my big “Angelina lips.”

    I wear makeup every day and my Fiance likes it. I usually wear eyeshadow, mascara, concealer under the eyes, eyebrow shadow and blusher on the cheeks. He doesn’t like lipgloss though, as it’s too sticky for kissing haha.


    I wear lipgloss or lipstick only for special occasions.

    Fiance can’t even tell the difference. For real. The other night, I finally broke down and bought a foundaton brush and put on “real” makeup for the first time in Idon’tknowhowlong. I typically just do tinted moisturizer and mascara and leave it at that but I was feeling a little non-feminine so I felt like playing with makeup.

    Anywho, once I achieved the look I was going for, I started taking it off since we were just chillin’ at home and I thought it would be funny to run into the living room where Fiance was watching TV and do my best Harvey Dent/Two Face impression. I’m a nerd.

    I get in there and yell “Where’s the batman!!” and Fiance just looks at me like I’ve gone insane. I told him I was doing my Harvey Dent impression and he stared blankly back. I pointed and said “see? this side has makeup on it and this side doesn’t?!” And he shrugged and said “they look the same to me?” Ladies I had full on smokey cat eye goin’ on on my left and NOTHING on my right…

    Moral of the story: my Fiance is blind but that means my tinted moisturizer/mascara duo is workin’ out just fine!

    My Fiance doesn’t care whether or not I wear makeup, he says he can’t tell a difference and that I look exactly the same with or without it on and either way I’m beautiful/cute with or without makeup. When I do wear makeup I go for a more natural look so that probably explains it lol.

    SO thinks I wear too much mascara…I do! But I like the way it looks on me so I keep it.  He always tells me I have too much gunk on my eyes, lol!

    My sweetie and I met when I was most definitely not looking my best, but he still thought I looked amazing.  He’s often commented how much he likes how I look in the morning when I get out of bed.

    He also enjoys seeing how I look when I dress up and put makeup on, so I think he likes how I look both ways.
