Nothing wrong with wearing typical make-up. If W wants too ok looks good. I like it.Let me start by saying that this is a lighthearted post; I'm happily married and not looking for some nefarious motives behind my husband's opinion. I just want to hear some male perspectives.
My husband claims that he thinks I look just as good without makeup as with. I don't. Trust me, I do NOT. If I wasn't trying to remain anonymous, I would post pics of before and after. Case in point, I had a coworker (I worked with kids) years ago tell me one day that she would watch my class for 5 minutes so that I could go put on some makeup, so I didn't scare the children; apparently, the color drains out of my face when I get tired and I look sickly. (She was a good friend, and we had one another's backs, do she wasn't being snarky.)
Perhaps my husband is unusual, perhaps he's stretching the truth in order to be kind, or perhaps all of our years together have blinded him to my looks. 🤣 I enjoy wearing makeup and feel better when I do (though sometimes I just don't feel like it). But I'm genuinely curious what men think about women wearing makeup, or if they think of it at all.
I've heard it said that women wear makeup for other women. Men, what say you? Do you prefer a woman who is made up? What about if you're dating? Does it matter if you've known the woman or been married for a long time? Is there a limit to what kinds of makeup looks attractive, or do you have no idea what I'm talking about it? 😂
And while we're on the topic of appearance, my husband tells me to do whatever I like best with my hair, but he prefers it longer. He claims most men feel this way, and this has been my experience. Would you say that's how most men think? I've seen more than one guy be enamored with damaged, frizzy, long hair over short, healthy hair. Is this a guy thing, or is it just the men I socialize with?
Thank you in advance for a peak inside the male mind.
If W doesn't want to wear make-up, ok, looks good, I like it.
Pretty much sums it up. Depends on the day's or night's program.
