Q: My boyfriend has never seen me without makeup on. He’s hinted that I shouldn’t worry about always wearing makeup around him. I don’t know if I’m comfortable with him seeing me like that. What if he doesn’t approve? We’ve been dating for almost a year. Am I being silly in not letting him see me without makeup?

A: Really good question, and I’ve heard a few girls share similar concerns. The way I see it is that if he’s really into you, he’ll like you with or without your makeup. After all, he’s been with you almost a year, so that means he’s with you for more than your looks. Sometimes it is hard to let people see your real appearance, but you need to have confidence to believe he will accept you just as you are. And you know what? If he ends up being that shallow that he doesn’t accept you after he’s seen you without makeup, he probably isn’t the right guy for you.

Don’t be afraid to trust people. They might just surprise you.

    Good post. I always had the same problem with my boyfriends. If he really likes you he wont care. I agree with being open to trust people; I think in most cases, like you said, they really will surprise you.

    The funny thing is that I always feel like make-up is a women’s thing. We are the ones who judge other women who leave the house with some uncovered zits or eye-rings. More than half of the time, I’m approached by guys in the subway or super-market etc. is exactly without make-up or anything.
