Okay you guys knew this was coming. When it comes to makeup my husband could careless whether I ware it or not. You guys have to realize my husband didn’t meet me looking my best. When we met I was in sweats and I had a bare face. When we were dating I kinda hid the glamorous side of myself. This was mainly because my husband would talk about how good I look all natural.
Over time of course the makeup called to me. And I wanted to become a butterfly. The first time I let him see me with makeup on we’d just got engage. I was introducing him to friends at a social event. He thought I was beautiful and he loved I could ware makeup but again he wanted to see me. Not the enhance me with makeup.
It didn’t seem like a problem at first because he never knew how long it took to get it looking perfect. And when he moved in after we were married I would make sure to start early on my makeup. So really it was okay for him and it didn’t affect our social life.
You guys know that this didn’t last long. After about two months makeup was everywhere and the time seem to fly by every time I applied it. There were time that we would need to be somewhere and show up an hour or two late. It only took one month before my husband became annoyed with me and makeup.
We argue about the time it takes to put makeup on. The time it takes to take makeup off. That I’m beautiful and don’t need it. How much makeup I have which in his opinion is a lot. The money I spent on makeup and the need for more.
My husband didn’t understand that makeup like this blog makes me happy. I can remember all those time I used makeup as an outlet for my pain from loss. It was therapeutic for me.
Finally my husband band me from purchasing more makeup or wearing it with him. After about a week to him but it felt like years to me. We seat down to talk about it. He was concerned he didn’t understand why I wanted to wear makeup so much. Or why other people was more important to me because I could not be wearing it for him. He wondered why I didn’t see how beautiful I was without it. And how I must always present this prefect mask around everyone.
It took me back. I didn’t realize how much he cared about me wearing makeup. He likes makeup on special occasions where I could go the extra mile but to go to the Dollars Tree (Not Sponsored). He felt it was over kill.
I explained to him how much happiness makeup brings me. That it help me get through all the bad time when he wasn’t there in my life. And that it’s not a mask it’s more of a canvas to create. I love makeup not to cover up but to bring out a woman who was just recently discovered. You see all my life I only wore lipstick or mascara maybe once in a while eyeshadow. So makeup was still new to me.
Once we started talking it led to other things and we were able to get an understanding on both side. Now my husband just give me a timed schedule. If I’m not ready I forfeit five dollars to go toward any makeup I want to buy. Which after three time being late I really do the minimum sometime. This keep us both happy I don’t lose money and he loves the less is more look. Now back to my shopping of course you guys know I did not get to keep the Coach shoes. So when I return them I decide to get a charm because I had just the right amount for something small. I can’t help it you guys know me by now. And beside I now have my first African outfit eventually I will be ordering some shoes to go with them. Here starts my evil plan lol. Talk to you guys later.
