Face Off

Husband: Are you feeling ok?

Me: Yes, I’m fine. Why?

Husband: Oh, you just look a bit pale around the eyes.

Me: Oh? Really?

Then the penny dropped.

Husband: Ohhhh. You’re not wearing any make-up.

Indeed, I wasn’t. I had a rehearsal later for a show and didn’t fancy putting on the slap twice. I had dyed my hair though and put on some fake tan. I thought, despite the lack of mascara, I looked all right.

Clearly not.

So, later, back home in stage make-up:

Husband: That’s a lot of make-up you’ve got on.

Mind you, this is the man who told me I looked ‘too sparkly’ on our wedding day. Clearly he doesn’t understand the make-up thing.

Some days I just can’t win.

  1. When will they learn that really the only acceptable comment on our looks is “Oh, wow – you look great!” or some variation thereof…

  2. Wow, you look great with no make up on. One of my dearest and oldest friends dropped in early one morning and caught me with a bare face and bed hair, and her reaction was OMFG.

  3. Husband: Are you feeling okay?
    You: Yes, I’m fine. Why?
    Husband: Oh, you just look a bit pale around the eyes.
    You: Have you thought anymore about that vasectomy yet?

  4. Men are hopeless.

    My coworker and I always talk about how all we have to do to convince our boss we’re sick is to wear a little less makeup that day and everyone is all “are you okay? you look a little off.” Thanks a lot.
