    When I first meet my honie’s parents it was for 4th of july bbq. By that time I had a nice tan no my makeup was very minimal. Mascara, very lil bronzer and coral-y colored lip tube from victoria’s secret.

    I don’t remeber, what I wore exactly. But I think a light eye shadow (maybe Vanilla), mascara, a gloss and my Studio Fix.

    I would never wear tons of blush and bronzer, no bright colors like blue or green, dark colors on the lids
    Something natural like (Shroom, Patina, Smoke & Diamonds, Satin Taupe, Ricepaper) compaired with a soft sheer lipstick, nothing bright or dark either. I don’t want to frighten my maybe furture parents in law.

    I haven’t met my SO’s family yet(only been dating a month), but theoretically, I would wear basic brown eyeshadows(woodwinked just on the lid) and mascara. On my lips, something neutral-ish but nice.

    Under NO circumstances would I wear a dark/dramatic lipstick/lipgloss. Sometimes my lipstick likes to smear, get on my teeth, get stuck to my hair and then transferred somewhere on my face(that happened this morning). It only happens when the colors are dark so I’d definitely avoid that.

    I knew my fiance’s dad before we started dating. If we’d been strangers though, I probably would have worn neutral makeup except for the mascara. I’d pick the plum Clairins mascara. Its subtle, but cool.

    Oh lord, let me think back that long ago! Fortunately, FI’s grandma took a picture the first time I came over! Seems that I had bronze shadow all over the lid and barely into the crease, mega lashes, and liner on top and bottom. Too Faced Sun Bunny on cheeks, and a super neutral (I think VGV 5) lipglass.

      Me too. The first time I met my husband’s parents I had no make up on at all. Then slowly I started to put make up on. His mom is more on the conservative side so I didn’t want her to think I put make up on to make myself look pretty.

    Well I wear only powder and lipstick… then complete make up but in soft shade.

    thank goodness i’m still young… there’s no need to meet my significant other’s parents yet :D

  10. I try not to wear makeup, just mascara if anything. I know my boyfriends family is a little more traditional so I tone it down a lot when I see them.
