    How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    lol, i was playing around with my boyfriend ... well i was serious.. and i was like "come on, tell me if you like the way this goes (e/s)" .. and he's like i don't really care. i had this beauuutttiiifffuuullll black dark smokey eye goin on, and he's like "ew, thats ugly, thats too dark" ... he says "if it's not brown or neutral then its ugly" .. lol. but that really made me sad because i have all his makeup in all these wonderful colors and he doesn't like them he sucks.

    My bf tells me that I don't need makeup cuz I look beautiful without it. But he doesn't mind too much if I put on a little bit. He hates bright colors. lol. I think pretty much every boy likes neautral colors on their girl.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    I don't think my hubby tells me how I really look often. He doesn't want to offend me. Yes, I hear the - "I like the natural m/up look". I reply, "Yes, natural m/up like Playboy. Right?" They want you to look airbrushed without makeup. It's not possible. I can do a natural look and wear the same amount of makeup as with the bright colors. It's a smoke and mirrors thing. They always think you wear less with neutral flesh tone colors. "Oh, that girl isn't wearing much m/u". haaa haaa The chick has as much as me on, but in neutral tones.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    he usually compliments it. i usually ask if he likes my eyeshadow or i always ask his opinion on something in particular...he usually likes it though. sometimes he doesnt understand why i wear it or he says i don't need it. and whenever i bitch about my makeup he reassures me that its nice
    i guess thats all i can ask for lol

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    He buys it for me if I want it, but he doesn't like when I wear color. Neutral colors are ok, he usually can't tell if I'm wearing a lot if it's all neutrals. He does acknowledge that I do it well though!

    But anything bright and he says it reminds him of Mimi haha, or he just doesn't comment but makes funny faces. He also really hates lipgloss because it is sticky and leaves lip prints on his face.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    my boyfriend buys me all the makeup i want! he knows its my passion and hobby and hes happy to spend his money on me and my makeup lol. when i do like extreme makeup [very colourful, totally blended etc.] he tells me how amazing it is and how i should be a makeup artist. When i dont wear makeup he tells me i look beautiful without it but he knows its what i wanna do when im older [makeup artist] so hes VERY supportive and treats me when new mac stuff comes out. I sooo wanna give him a makeover one day i already asked him and hes like &quot;one day... one day but you cant tell anyone!&quot; and im like i wont! lol he's soo good with MAC makeup too he knows most of the prices of the items i buy, if i want a new e/s and its similar to one i already have hes like &quot;i thought you already have a teal!&quot; and im like AND?! boys will never understand

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    my husband doesn't care one way or the other. he knows i loooooove makeup,but he's not all gung-ho about it like &quot;i love to buy you makeup! rah rah rah!&quot; but i dont bitch about his computer obsession,therefore neither does he. he always gives me MAC/Sephora gift cards for everything..birthdays,christmas,anniversaries,etc. he likes me without it,but doesnt mind when i wear it,either. its just..there,to him. he just hates when he has to go in the stores with me,i can spend HOURS. and he doesnt like when i ask him &quot;what do you think,this e/s or this one?&quot; it's all the same to him. he once saw a concealer stick and thought it was white lipstick no. lol.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My boyfriend hates when I wear makeup, so Its as simple as I don't often wear it around him unless we are going to something social. He won't kiss me if I have anything on my lips, not even chapstick.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My boyfriend is completely supportive of my hobby, and he finds my obsession endearing. He is always giving me input and compliments on different looks that I do. He has even started giving me more feedback and specific compliments.

    All I do is talk about makeup, and he is more than happy to encourage my love for it. He even buys me collections that fall on anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays :-D

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    mine is completely supportive haha hes shopped with me so much that he can go in and pick out specific colors, formulas, everything! for christmas he always gets me makeup off my wishlist and his fam always ends up giving me mac/sephora gift cards which end up being spent before the new year! i get makeup on my birthday too, but since im a summer baby i get more summery accessories/clothes as well. anyways not to go on a whole new topic, hes fine about it. i tend to take a long time even to do simple things, since i dont feel very well most of the time, and he usually gets a bit antsy but is fine with it. he even notices when im wearing my new stuff gotta love a supportive man! even my guy friends ask for my assistance when buying for their girlfriends (who are my much-less obsessed friends)..it feels like an accomplishment when i get asked to tag along haha

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My boyfriend notices my makeup and compliments on it. Since I am a makeup artist, he sort of took an interest in it ... like he notices if someone has bad brows or bad makeup. So cute! He thinks I'm beautiful with or without makeup (and tells me all the time) *blush* but he's just surprised at how much it all costs. I love him.

    LOL!!! That concealer being white lipstick is funny!!

    Mmm.. the b/f buys it for me and what not but he doesn't like colors on me... But I LOOOOVE colorful eye makeup, I think it looks so nice when it's applied well.. But he doesn't..

    SOOO.. I just wear it to school while he's at work so he doesn't have to see it.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My boyfriend loves it.
    When I don't wear makeup for a few days, he'll ask &quot;Why aren't you wearing all the bright colors?&quot;. He loves me best without it, but he even requests that I do certain combos sometimes He regularly checks my makeup photobucket and everything and he tells me he likes it when I do &quot;mermaid&quot; looks, hahaha, like greens and blues.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    I husband hates makeup. Only recently did I notice that his mother uses eyeliner, and used that against him (no dear, those lashes are not naturally that dark). It's really frustrating because he'll notice even lightly colored lipgloss, and will get irritated. I am slowly working on being able to wear it around him. So far I've made it to the light foundation and concealer phase ^_^.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    my bf pushes me to apply at mac all the time.. if only i would get hired... LOL. since hes a grafitti artist, he sees the &quot;artistic&quot; aspect of makeup and he likes to suggest colors that would go together. he's only bought me a few items but he doesnt really complain when i HAVE to stop at mac everytime were at the mall, he just laughs at me. LOLZ

    this is my BF exactly. At first he couldn't understand why I needed so much of it until he went with me to pick a new foundation at mac. The lady ended up color matching me and then putting together a make up look that complimented my skintone. lol thats when he saw the light and realized there was a lot more to it than just pick and choose. Now he surprises me with new make up brushes or encourages me to buy what I want from each collection because I also support his (EXPENSIVE) video gaming habit as well as his technology obsessions. heh so we're about even.

    As far as complimenting me on my looks: sometimes he does if he notices something. On my lips he likes either really BRIGHT fun colors or really really soft pale lippies with darker eyes. no neutrals b/c he thinks they look funny on me. lol

    He is really good about it I think. He accidently opened my eyeshadow draer and was wetting his pants at all the little black containers! hehe. But I taught him yesterday about highlights and where you can put different colours on your lid... he loed that! And then I told him about back2mac, and he remember and asked me if i was going to take my empties in!!!! so cute

    He is supportive. He knows i can have much worse addictions. He even gives me money sometimes to buy an eyeshadow. He always compliments my different looks and tells me if he doesn't like something.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My boyfriend doesn't quite understand the &quot;obsession&quot; point of view and why I pay so much for it (even after I try to explain it to him). But he likes it when I try different things with makeup and will usually give his opinion on different looks. But he would prefer me not to wear any makeup.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My man likes how I look when I get up in the morning, AKA tore up, but he prefers a natural look.
    Whenever I do wear a lot of makeup, he usually goes &quot;What the hell?&quot;
    It's whatever though, he's into football and I'm into MAC, to each their own

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    I think my boyfriend is more obsessed than I am, LOL - I don't wear make-up all that often so he enjoys it when I do. It fascinates him, partly because he &quot;can't&quot; wear it, I guess. I'm his excuse to go into the cosmetics store/departments when we go out (and of course to buy the best stuff ), and he's been known to surf the MAC website entirely on his own for hours (I believe he made himself an account there recently, LOL). In fact, he may be secretly on this forum and reading this right now! *looks about suspiciously*

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    When I first started to buy MAC, my man was very supportive because he noticed a difference in the way my makeup looked (better quality!) He even bought me the MAC Traincase &told me he wanted me to have the best makeup. I thought that was awesome!

    Now that I'm a total MAC fiend, though, its a slightly different story. Whenever he sees me come home with that black bag, he's like &quot;How much did you spend THIS time?&quot; lol. I do spend quite a bit every month on makeup &we do have some joint financial obligations so I can understand his reasoning behind this. But he loves when I do my makeup &loves that I change it up everytime we go out. He said it adds a bit of *spice* to our relationship because its not always the same ol' thing.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    My fiance is really awesome about it. Even though he admits that he knows nothing about it and thinks I always look beautiful, made-up or not, he is so supportive. He knows that it's my hobby or my &quot;thing&quot; as he puts it and loves to see me happy. We're both students, so not very financially stable, but whenever we go to the MAC store he offers to buy me something. He also hates to see me sell my makeup (on here or on LJ) and won't let me if he catches me. If I'm selling stuff to pay off a credit card or something, he always says &quot;I'll take care of you, I'll pay it off for you, just don't sell your makeup.&quot; It's sweet.

    Re: How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

    Mine never says, &quot;What the hell?&quot; about anything, but he really just doesn't care. I could probably put lipstick on my eyes and mascara on my lips and he wouldn't notice the freaking difference.

    Grrrrrrrrr...I'm just bitter.

    I'm sure if I were getting PAID to be made-up every day, that would be a different story altogether.

    He DOES get annoyed when I have to finish getting ready in the car on the way to work (while he's driving, of course) and powdery, dusty stuff goes everywhere. I tell him the glitter makes the car pretty, but I don't think he's buyin' it.
