My husband is really not the makeup type, I’m sorry to say. Twenty years ago, in college, that one time with the short black dress and the tights…but these days he doesn’t even use lip balm. Or face wash. (He uses soap, which he buys in bulk at Costco based on what’s cheapest. I’ve bought him face wash, but he still won’t use it.)

Oh man, I do all the time. I just did his brows a few minutes ago. I find that men are pretty sensitive about having their faces touched, particularly around the eyes. Try to get an eyelash curler or eyeliner pencil near my boyfriend and he is having none of it!Though sometimes he even puts up a fuss about me moisturizing his face, so..

All in all, its just a fun silly thing to do with your partner .If he or she will let you, that is! Haha.

Lol no, but we did it to his brother once, his brother got wasted and he has longish hair which looked feminine, so me and my best friend did his makeup and took a picture and put it on a south indian matrimonial site. He actually got a few friend requests lol

I’m surprised you’ve never made him even test something! Jay is forced to test things often 😉 Usually products that I think require more than just one person’s chemistry like cream eyeshadows and foundations.

Lol, yes. He actually didn’t look that bad, kind of himself in drag, but the eyeliner suited him. However I think I’ll bury the photos.

I’m happy to say that I’ve done the faces of ALL my significant others 🙂 Teeheehee, I’m very persuasive!

Yes 🙂
im studying to become an makeup artist and i did normal male makeup(like for tv interviews, nothing extreme just hide shine and imperfections)
But i also managed to get him to model for me in a drag class that was awesome ill probably owe him forever :p

Yup – my fiancee is a woman, and I did her makeup for our engagement photos. She doesn’t usually wear makeup, but wanted to wear just a little bit for the photos, a very natural look. They turned out really well 🙂

I’ll be doing her makeup for our wedding day, too – as well as my own!

You obviously did a fantastic job since the photos turned out well and she wants you to do her wedding makeup too. What a loving way to get ready together before your vows!!! Congratulations, I hope you have many years of happiness together.

On my ex significant other, yes! Mascara, blush, lipstick… it was a lot of fun. I’ll just add it took place on our anniversary and after a couple of glasses of wine though 😉

Husband asked for my help to apply some ‘concealer’ that his dermatologist prescribed after he had laser to remove some sunspots. I still tease him about his ‘makeup phase’ 😉
