I Don't Wear Makeup Often, But When I Do, My Husband Just Gives Me That Look And I've Asked Him Why? He Says He Just Don't Like Makeup. Are Some Men Just Like That?

Maybe he thinks you are just beautiful enough. I have a friend whose husband does not let her wear make-up, he says he doesn't like it but he always oggles and says nice things about girls and they are always the ones that wear make-up, maybe be your husbands feels threatened deep down when you look to attractive, maybe he thinks other men will notice you...

I agree with you. Maybe is jealousy.

Yeah. Some women are like that too. Some think make-up is unnecessary and waste of money.

I don't wear make up very often and when I do, my husband is rather the opposite. He gives me a look that makes me blush. Of course he gives me lots of compliments with and without the make up on. It could be that he is jealous. It could be that he really doesn't like it. Or it could be that he has something from his past that makes him feel like you shouldn't wear it.

My hubby doesnt seem to care what I look like. He doesnt seem jealous. Now my daughter suggests I wear make-up but not alot. I myself feel I have the man I need no point in it. I do wear make up sometimes and my hubby will say I look nice. I usually dont wear make-up unless we go out which is rare. I figure people either like me as I am or forget it.

Yeah some of us guys are like that. Like me when my girlfriend put on make up I gave her a funny look. She got anoyed and asked me why I told she just looked so different. She respond by saying that I probably dont like change much. Could that be it? You would need to wear it more often or practice more not to say anything bad but when my girlfriend put makeup on it was one of her first times so she did look a bit odd...

i think some men are just like that. my ex always gave me 'the look' when i wore make up around him but never gave me a reason as to why. So ask your husband why he gives you that look, but at the end of the day, if you like wearing makeup, dont let anyone stop you! you have every right to do exactly what you want as and when you want.
