Does Your Significant Other Complain About Your Beauty Routine?

I'm not entirely convinced that Mr. Bella will ever understand my beauty routine. "Do you really need to put wax (tinted moisturizer) on your face?" he asks. "Why do you have dark brown conditioner?" he wonders. "What is that torture device (eyelash curler) you are putting on your lashes?" he inquires.

Even though I'm all about looking nice and presentable when I leave the house, I don't consider myself overly excessive. In reality, all I need is about 15 minutes for the everyday hairstyling and makeup application. What about you? Does your significant other have not-so-nice things to say about the time you spend on your beauty routine?

nope! I don't wear makeup. Sometimes i use a little carrot creme on my hair though, since it's pretty dry.

my boyfriend likes it when i get extra dolled up so he never complains at how long it takes me to get ready

boys are hypocrites. Mine appreciates that I'm quick and low maintainence, yet sometimes make comments once in a blue moon how i never pretty myself up to him and im' "losing" my looks the longer we are together (although I know he doesn't mean harm..just trying to make hints at me to dress up for him). And if i have skin problems like sensitivity or acne, he just bluntly states "it's probably all the chemicals you put on your face"......boys

He used to whinge that I wasn't girly enough because I didn't wear foundation, now when he catches me applying foundation and concealer he tells me I don't need it. No pleasing that one. He also doesn't see the need for face masks, cleansers and anything deep cleaning. (It's to get the foundation out of my pores!!! Argh!)

13, my boo actually won't kiss me not to ruin my hard work. he says it's too pretty to mess up before we even leave the house :)))

he does when i put on a going out face :) but i think he enjoys browsing internet while he waits too much to care really. he likes me without make up as well so i show my real face a lot with him. but i love make up too much so I put it on just for fun even though we're staying in for the night. it's my guilty pleasure and my boo knows not to mess with it

Yes, but only if I'm taking too long. He also says I don't need to wear makeup..but oh yes I DO :)

my boyfriend absolutely hates my eyelash curler! he won't look at it and he will walk away when i'm using it. He used to complain about me using a flat iron, saying "you don't need that" but then I left my hair curly for a week, which means he can't touch it, and now no more complaints there, two years later :)

After all these years he's pretty used to it- he's pretty good unless we're running low on time. He does however dislike how many different lotions and creams I have- he can't quite wrap his head around that! haha

Same here -- no complaints. I don't use make-up, and my husband LOVES that. He said that was of the things that attracted him to me.

He complains mostly about the time. I don't cake makeup on, I'm fairly minimal, but I definitely take my time getting ready. Every once in a while he'll stand in the hallway and question why I do what I do - I just kick the bathroom door shut and continue on.

Like hippiecowgirl, he really only complains when cutting it close to time. Of course he says he prefers me with no make-up...but I don't think it's a 24/7 thing lol

No complaints, but he makes fun of me for being irritated by waves in my hair that I missed while straightening. Now when he knows I've painstakingly blowdried/flat-ironed my hair he'll kind of squint at it and say that my hair looks wavy just to piss me off, and then laughs.

The only time he complains is if we're running late or cutting it close on time to go somewhere. He's never said anything negative about the actual styles, products or applications.

Nah. I don't cake it on though. He only complains when I wear lipstick when we are going out. I usually just ignore it.

Yes, He has to much to say about it. He calls me crusty the clown. He tells me I don't need all of that. He said that I am going to puck out my eye one day with the eyelash curler!

My husband, primarily hates that my foundation gets everywhere! We had to get dark towels and dark sheets so he won't "see" my foundation all over the pillows so much!

My hubby prefers me with no makeup and minimal hair styling. He likes how soft my skin is but will complain about my nightly ritual of putting on oils/lotions and skin serums. If I skip lotion on my body a few days straight - he starts complaining about how dry my skin is. He just can't seem to grasp the connection of lotion = soft skin. And he definitely doesn't understand the need for a once a week deep conditioner.
