How does your boyfriend react to your love of makeup?

My husband really doesn't care how much I wear but he REALLY doesn't get how much I have and why I want to buy MORE!!!! He doesn't have any sisters so this is all a big mystery to him-- he is in trouble because our daughters love makeup --- $$$$

He told me the cutest thing today.
His sister asked him for help picking a 21st birthday present for her friend and he said 'Get her a MAC brush, she can't complain'


She went 'HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOUT MAC?!'

I'm so proud of my boy! haha

That's so cute!

My fiance is great about my love of makeup. He rolls his eyes whenever I mention new collections, but he buys me lots of things. He tells me I look beautiful whether I wear hardly any make up, or bright and bold make up. He's great!

He likes it. Sometimes he doesn't like me wearing really glossy gloss when he wants to kiss me, but if i'm wearing something that doesn't transfer he doesn't mind.. and usually he'll end up kissing me anyway and then just wiping his lips. But yeah, he likes my makeup obsession, he thinks it's cute and always calls me his "girly girl"
and he buys it for me for birthdays and xmas

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 "one day... one day but you cant tell anyone!" 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 "i thought you already have a teal!" and im like AND?! boys will never understand

HaHAHA Omgosh you are so lucky!! I would love for my s/o to treat me to MAC! He's really supportive and actually sits there and listens to me rant and rave about new colours and products and ums and ahhhs at appropriate intervals, but he's never suggested to pay for a haul! Hahahaha - except for my birthday when he said "Pick the make up you want - I'll just pay for it " and i ended up with 10 victoria's secret lip glosses (to diiiie for)

Bless my man he's the sweetest guy in the world but when it comes to make up the only 2 words he uses are 'pretty' and 'nice'. It's not that he isn't supportive he just has no idea what he's looking at or the time and practice involved to perfect a look.

I took him to MAC once which I lovingly refer to as MECCA and he just looked lost but smiled and said 'yes that looks nice' when I asked what he thought. He doesn't get the obession but he supports anything that makes me as deleriously happy as MAC does

My man loves when his girl gets all dolled up
His favorite is a winged cat eye but with a colored liner, especially teal. Second would be a smoked out panda eye but with pink lips instead of nude. Seriously I love him so much more for that! He ALWAYS notices when I do something different with my eyeshadow and is always offering suggestions
"Babe I think it would look really sexy if you put lipgloss instead of that stain stuff"

"I love your eyeshadow but how come you didn't line the inside? You know I like it best with the inside black" <wants me to line my waterline

I think he just loves the fact that with makeup one can be so versatile, so one day he has the sweet doll of a gf with false lashes, pink cheeks and lips while the next day a sexy version.

All that and he still loves me even more without it because I let him touch my face since there's nothing to mess up <3

my boyfriend only really comments if he likes it bright or dark .. i dont expect him to talk about how well my blending has gotten but just the fact that he only comments when he likes it is enough for me .. i wouldnt like it if he told me he didnt so he really doesnt

does that make sense?

I told him that i made a list of everything from Mac that i wanted (like a goal lol) and he said "I'll give you $50 bux from my paycheck to help every week" So he's supportive and when i talk about makeup he listens.. SOMETIMES. Oh gosh Stylesprite! he HATES that he cant touch my face too haha. Overall, he's supportive


That's so cute! I hope I can find a guy like that someday! Lucky girl!

he's funny about it!

at first he just didn't understand, especially from a financial stand-point (he's a chef, so he couldn't figure out how i could eat bologna sandwiches in order to save money for MAC!). but once i got clear on wanting to move forward into doing MUA work, he just kind of accepted it. and he waits patiently while i peruse around MAC and Sephora, sometimes several times over the course of a weekend, so that's a plus! and he kind of takes my leads on opinions, if i'm obviously excited about something, he'll say he likes it. if i'm sort of questioning it, he'll give it a thumbs down. (although i think that sometimes he just agrees so i can hurry along!).
and he pretends to be excited while i unload my hauls at home like a giddy little school girl!

he always tells me how beautiful my looks are, sometimes he notices the details, but it's usually not much more than "i like it babe, it's so pretty..." and whenever i try to ask "what should i wear" the answer is always, never fails, black (that's as descriptive as he gets when it comes to a smokey eye!).

My boyfriend is great when it comes to this. Sometimes when we're just hanging out at the mall, he'll hand over his debit card and let me loose at MAC. For my birthday this month, he gave me $300 just for MAC. He watches me when I do my make up and smiles cause he knows I'm having fun. He'll tell me when he really likes something. He always says I don't need it, but sometimes he'll tell me how certain things enhance my eyes or lips.
The only time he gets annoyed is when we have somewhere to be and I'm taking a reallly long time or when I use a lot of my stuff on other people.

Before getting married, my man didn't get to see my collection, so not much noise from him.. after getting married, and i shifted my whole collection over, he's having a headache on where to keep my stuff.

But he's supportive, sometimes paying for my purchases as well.

This new guy im seeing... hes a pro photographer... when I told him about my MAC obsession he was like "MAC is the SHIT!"... he always sees his makeup artists putting MAC on his girls that he shoots and he told me he cant ever get over how they make them look so flawless and beautiful... Every time we've hung out he's always like "close your eyes".. I think its because hes going to kiss me or something but nope- its so he can see my eyeshadow and what I did that day haha..

Hes totally supportive and keeps telling me "I really need my own makeup artists for shoots"... I think he's hinting at me to do it buuuuuuuut.... Im not sure if I'd be up for all that haha. I have MAD lip and eye stuff but I dont have near enough face stuff to cover all the different shades of girls out there..!

My family is a completely different story- even they dont understand how the guy Im seeing can UNDERSTAND my obsession.. LMAO! But then again, my dad and I are OBSESSED with the White Sox- I try to compare it to that but he keeps saying "but you're not paying $14.50 to watch a game!".... I guess he's right but then again we do drop close to $1,500 between gas money and tickets and good and to go see games every season...............

mine doesn't care too much......however he did tell me 2 things he doesn't really dig on me.....

dark lips-like cult of cherry...it reminds him too much of the 90's highschool ghetto makeup

and when things are too electric-like sky blue pigment all over the eye.....or chrome yellow with eyepopping.

beside that he gave up. he knows we got theme days and supports me.

My bf in the beginning before it became an obsession, he would actually buy me MAC because it was an easy gift. Then he started to hate it. Everytime we would have to step out and i wanted to do my makeup no matter how simple it was he would huf and puf and leave me with no time to put on my makeup. If i made him wait forget it..i was better off with no makeup...and now, especially after getting certified, he see's that i make money and supports it in a way. He says i dont need it but I do it for me and not him. I mean if he likes it, then great but its my thing..i dont take away his XBOX now do i!
