I consider myself pretty brave as far as married women go. I'm secure enough in my powerful lady status to let my husband grab things off tall shelves and assist me in shoveling snow off our driveway. And yes, I'll admit it, I've even let the man get his fingers on a particularly painful zit (sorry, I'm a popper). But one woman has gone where womankind has never gone before ... she let her husband do her makeup.
And I thought I was brave? I have nothing on Rosie and the video that is bound to leave you both in stitches (because this couple is that adorable) and fearing for your skin (and your eyes, and ... well, you get the picture).
I don't think I have to really throw in the foul language warning here, do I? Some of these phrases are to be expected in a situation as dire as this (as the couple's description on their YouTube page points out, "There's a reason dudes don't do makeup!"):
Oh. My. Bravo Christopher. Bravo Rosie. That is one trusting relationship.
I can see the benefits. How many men say that a woman takes too much time on makeup, especially when the goal is to look like we're not wearing that much? If he walks in our shoes for even a few moments, he can't help but learn that artistry takes time. But I'm still not hopping on the chair.
Before you call me vain, this has nothing to do with how you look after the whole debacle is done. Heaven knows we've all made ourselves look like clowns a time or two -- we didn't need our male counterparts to do it for us. That's what they make cleansing pads for.
To me, it's all about safety. I'm saying this as a woman who wears very little makeup (I've just started sporting the stuff again after years of going au naturel). Badass chica I may be, but even I'm not brave enough to let my husband near my face with the tools in my beauty arsenal.
The first thing that actually popped into my head when I even heard the words "husband does wife's makeup" didn't show up in the video until about the 3-minute mark. I'm talking about the eyeliner folks. Yup, first thing I thought was, "I'm not even letting the father of my child that close to my eye with something pointy." I can barely stand to let the woman at Sephora do it, and she's trained not to try to turn my retinas a chocolate brown!
This is one style dare that's not for the faint of heart ... aka me!
What do you think: would you be as brave as Rosie? What would trouble you about letting your significant other do your makeup?
