BV Round Table: Would You Let Your Boyfriend Do Your Makeup?
Lately, there’s been a trend on YouTube of boyfriends and husbands taking the reigns when it comes to their ladies putting on their face in the morning. After a few giggles, it quickly became clear here at Black Voices, that there’s a very definite difference of opinion on the subject.
The pro/con ratio fell clearly along gender lines too, as all but one of the male staffers were firmly against it, while all of the female staffers thought it was very cute (though skeptical if they’d let the men in THEIR OWN lives do it). Here are some of the responses from our team:
“It’s a sweet idea but I still don’t think I’d want my boyfriend to do it.”
“I don’t see the big deal, if he’s good at it, let him give it a try.”
“I think this is so cute! I don’t see what’s the big deal!”
“Not my style, but if that’s what keeps your love alive go for it!”
“I’m all for dudes sharing intimate moments with their girlfriends, but let her do her own makeup or pay for a pro to do it for her. I prefer natural women anyway. The less makeup, the better. Maybe just a lil lipstick…”
“It’s not CRAZY, but I wouldn’t do it myself and I KNOW she wouldn’t let me.”
