I think after two weeks. I got drunk and slept in the guest room, and getting up in the morning it was either wash the racoon eyes away or deal with the insane looking makeup. So I washed haha!

We ended up moving in together after 8 months and then it was every day. For me… daily I wear foundation, bronzer and blush and that’s it! For dates I add in eyemakeup and lip gloss, so really there isn’t much difference between no makeup me and everyday me.

Haivng him see you without makeup shouldn’t be a big deal! Be confident about who you are. He married you for your heart and soul too… not just your looks 🙂

My Fiance saw me without make up after our first week of dating. He came over early in the morning, while I was still getting ready & I didnt care. He always compliments me on my skin and how nice it is.

We first met through work (military) and I am not allowed to wear make up at work. Well, I could wear foundation and a little mascara, I suppose, but I don’t really bother with makeup unless I’m doing the whole thing. I am pretty sure the first time we crossed paths (because we had the same trade then) I was on his ship for the day  and we didn’t talk at all.

But more to the point, I hardly ever wear makeup now because of my job. I’m sure once I start my new career and before that school in September I will go back to wearing it though, because I do like it.

It definitely isn’t good for your skin to go to bed with make up on. I don’t even think most men really notice much when it comes to make up. My fiance still gets confused over what eye shadow and mascara really are!

My Fiance saw me without makeup shortly after we met…. he prefers me without makeup, but I still put some on before we go out. When he proposed I wasn’t wearing any, was in sweats and hadn’t showered yet, lol. I bet he’ll love you even more without makeup!

DH saw me without makeup before we ever started dating. We initially met while I was at cheerleading practice one day and he was introducing himself as our new trainer – so while I cheered I didn’t wear much makeup at practice and was generally sweaty, he still thought I was pretty.

It was a few months before I let him see me with no make up because we went on a vacation and I wasn’t going to wake up early to put make up on haha. Hw says he doesn’t see a difference and I am beautiful without it but I always feel better with at least a coverup to even my skin and hide any red spots.

I rarely wear make-up, so he probably saw me without it before he saw me with it.

I’m always amazed when someone says their SO, especially if they are married, hasn’t seen them without makeup on! I just don’t even see how it’s possible! You’ve never showered together, and/or he has never seen you just out of the shower? Your makeup doesn’t rub off while you sleep, or give you racoon eyes in the morning?

I very rarely wear makeup, but I did make an effort to put on some for my first few dates with my current SO — tinted moisturizer, blush, mascara. All bets were off after about the third or so date when I showered at his apartment, though, and now I rarely wear it unless we’re going out somewhere nice or I haven’t seen him an a while and just feel like getting dolled up for him. He tells me I look beautiful with and without makeup on, but he absolutely hates a face heavily done-up. To be honest, by the time we usually get to see each other after work and other errands and activities, I’m freshly showered with a bare face, wet hair in a messy bun, and in my sweats.

I think it’s nice to want to look good for your DH, but I promise he will think you look gorgeous either way and it will definitely get to be a hassle for you to keep up that routine! I agree with what a PP said — shower, throw on yoga pants and a t-shirt, and just walk out and face him. I bet you get a great compliment!

I wear very little makeup to begin with (light mascara and lip balm), but he saw me without makeup before we even started dating… we were on the same college cross country team and working out for hours a day does not go well with makeup. I’m lucky though, in that my Fiance hates when I wear any visible makeup.

I agree with some people. Are you afraid (deep down) that he wont like the way you look?? He shouldnt. and Im sure he doesnt. He will think your beautiful without your makeup.
It seems like a lot of unnecessary effort. I know that in previous relationships, I have gotten up and brushed my teeth and made sure I didnt look too hideous. But generally. I dont really care.

Fiance saw me with nomake up on probably in the 2nd week that we met. I was actually sick as a dog with the flu and he brought me medicine and took care of me. I DEFFFF didnt have make up on then, and I Surely wasnt even my normal “no makeup” self. haha.

Youll be fine. Just have trust. 🙂

Hehe, yeah Mr.FC first saw me with no makeup… probably after a flight to Paris or Zürich. I never wear makeup on the plane because you can’t wash your face on the plane, so I would never want to cover it up and irritate my skin.

I agree with others… just don’t put any on after a shower! Your DH will get to know the you without makeup and love that even more than you with makeup on! 🙂

my hubby saw me in light light makeup the first two times we met..when he came over for dinner the third time, i was in pjs and had just gotten home from work.  He fell in love with me then because I was the first girl that didn’t try to impress him by being overly dressed and made up..

most guys prefer girls with their pretty face instead of all the painting..just do it girl! leave the makeup off! 🙂

Pretty early on? I do have days that I just don’t bother with it. I couldn’t imagine marrying someone who had never seen me without makeup.

He saw me without makeup pretty early into our relationship (: I’ve always felt so comfortable around my SO that I didn’t find it hard to be makeup-less.

this is a big thing for me- Mr Elk saw me without makeup within days of meeting me, and that was important to me- if someone didn’t think I was good enough without mymakeup, clearly that wasn’t a relationship for me. I knew I couldn’t live my life trying to be perfect all of the time!  one of my bridesmaids and roomates in college used to put on makeup when her boyfriend said he was coming over to see her at night (even after she had gotten into her PJs and ready for bed) and it used to annoy me to no end.  I talked to her and asked her why she was doing it, and she realized how ridiculous it was and stopped.

 

You need to face your fears and just go without makeup- I can bet your DH won’t even notice the difference.
