No, but then the opportunity has never presented itself. However, I’ve had several choose what I wear.

I got this web page from my pal who informed me about this web page and at the moment this time I am browsing this website and reading very informative content at this time.

Your answer made me laugh! 🙂

I’ve never had a partner do my makeup, but I did (stupidly) allow a male friend to do it once. I ended up with green on one eye and pink on the other! And black blusher, a random streak of brown down my nose and a highlighter overload. Never again.

Oh, I think he would do it if I asked, but the song ‘Everday is Halloween’ comes to mind…

The reverse, believe me I’ve tried just for s’s and g’s, and nocandooo !

🙂 No, I also never asked. I’m not sure if he even knows the difference between mascara and lipgloss.

No, but I’ve applied makeup to my significant other. It was the 90s and we only could afford the cheap stuff, which left him saying “Woah. This how girls tasted in high school.”

Yes. Once years ago when I bought the coastal scents 88 palettes, my boyfriend at the time tried to smear as many of the colors as possible on to my face at once. More recently my current boyfriend tried to do my makeup after we watched Jenna marble’s boyfriend does my make up tag video. He now appreciates that its harder then it looks hahaha

No, but I would love to do my ex’s makeup! He is trans and since we both love makeup I think it would be fun!

Yes! My boyfriend loves watching the boyfriend does my makeup tag so we agreed it’d be fun since we weren’t going anywhere. I didn’t let him watch any videos first and it turned out exactly as I thought it would. He has yet to let me return the favor

No, but I have let them decide what makeup I was going to wear when I was undecided on it. One called my red lipstick “hooker lipstick” (ruby woo), and I bought a more raspberry red color that he could tolerate. We broke up, but I’m still not as comfortable wearing red as I was.

forget about what he said, he is wrong and not all guys think that. some LOVE true red, some don’t care, some don’t like it in general, some only like some colors. i hope you find one that likes all colors that you like on you too 😀 my bf likes all colors in lipstick except sparkly pink or blingy gold lipsticks or dark brown-plum ones(poo colors). he loves nude, peach, pink and red and everything else.

Christine, have you every seen any of the “boyfriend does my makeup” vids on Youtube? Some of them have genuinely horrifying results! lol

Yes and I ended up getting poked in the eye with the eye pencil. And I looked like a cheap hooker.

also, let me 8year old daughter put make up on me, didn’t look that bad 🙂

The closest my hubby has ever come to helping me with makeup is picking out a lip color that coordinates with my outfit and the rest of my makeup for that day or night. I wouldn’t even dare to ask him to apply it because he hates make up (with the exception of pigmented gloss which he thinks is sexy 😉 ), barely knows the names of basic products (he once asked me what foundation was when I was shopping for some in Sephora lol), and he wouldn’t know where to place what product on my face. Plus, I tend to buy HE products regularly now, so I wouldn’t want him wasting my “good” stuff anyway! lol

no, he also refuses!! but since i’m taking a make up course, he volunteered to be my model for practicing!!

hahah, yes just for fun when we were bored. He actually didn’t do as bad as I thought, just was too heavy handed on the blush part lol

Even though he’d probably go along with it after a while, if I asked sweetly enough, just to make me happy :), why would I do that to him? I see no point in it at all… He already knows more about makeup than he probably cares to, because I talk about it a lot. No one among family or friends shares my passion for makeup, so my darling and understanding husband gets the short stick on hearing about it all the time :). I do ask on occasion what he’d prefer me to wear.

If I asked him, he’d probably do it but with all the money I’ve invested in mine, I think my anxiety level would go up if I let him try it on me. Think I’ve been scarred from all the youtube videos where you see someone’s boyfriend/husband blowing on the brushes and then applying it to the face only to re-dip into the foundation or powder again. Not that I’m saying my husband would do that, but I’m not willing to take a chance. Although, I did let him paint my nails once, he did a pretty good job on those :).

Yes! We actually posted a video of it on YouTube. It was hilarious, he was such a good sport about it and we were cracking up the entire time. I also wasn’t looking in a mirror the entire time so I had no idea what I looked like. My favorite part was when he was trying to do my blush, and he had no idea how much to use so he must have been too heavy handed, because the second he put the brush on my cheek he went “oooooooh…..”

LOL, no, he would gladly, but I’m afraid the results would be…well hilarious as his dexterity is poor. However I do his eyeliner and mascara for him because he likes to wear it and he gets great compliments on his eyes when he does so maybe I should let him fend for himself 😉

My boyfriend won’t do my makeup, but one time I asked him to paint my nails and he did. It was adorable. (Of course, I had to fix it up later, when he wasn’t looking!)

I have put makeup on my partner… Then again, we’re both lipstick lesbians who love makeup! Everything works out for us!
