Bare it or Cover it???
Okay, here is the thing. Me and my husband often times disagree with many issues which is of course, a normal thing between a husband and wife. But today, we were at it again, so I decided to share what we argued about.
This happened when I was putting on makeup in the morning. I was right in the middle of putting foundation on my face. My husband comes in and had a look at what I was doing and started to saying, "you really don't need to put that much makeup, you know.." And I said, "what do you mean, 'that much' makeup.. I don't put a lot of makeup, honey.. This is oil-free, light/sheer foundation." So of course he goes like this, "Oh, yes you do.. you put a lot of makeup and you don't need it. It's complement. Don't take me the wrong way. I think you should forget about spending 10-15 minutes to make your face because you look beautiful without it." So we were going back and forth, yada yada yada....
In my honest opinion, I do believe I need makeup. I look pretty with it, not without it. I don't really put a lot of makeup to begin with, just a tiny bit of foundation, sometimes even just tinted moisturizer. I dust some blush, eyeshadow and liner and lip gloss. It doesn't sound much, right? And so, I really don't understand why it bothers my husband so much. I asked him, "Don't you want your wife to look nice, not ugly??" and his reply would always be, "It's because you're insecure about yourself. You really don't need it."
I do hear many men saying that they don't like to see their gals wearing lots of makeup. But really, I think makeup makes women feel pretty, it has nothing to do with insecurity. What do you think? Do you bare it or cover it?
