So a couple of weeks back I uploaded a post featuring my boyfriend Jake and for some reason people took a massive liking to it and he’s been super keen to be in another post so alas, here we have ‘My Boyfriend Does My Makeup’ (uh oh). This was all his idea by the way, no word of a lie.
Now Jake has watched me do my makeup for almost 4 years now in which I have obviously progressed a lot over time, completely expanded my makeup collection and changed the way I do things. He also takes quite a bit of interest in my makeup, tends to know what most things are called and which brushes to use for what and also reads all my blog posts so I had no idea what was going to happen. Spoiler: we didn’t stop laughing all the way through this, be prepared.
At first I told him to pick a theme and go with it, in which he replied “the wood look: smoky brown” which did make me giggle, then after looking through my palettes and gaining some inspiration, he decided to go for the theme “oceanic” instead (yes he also thought of that himself).
I’m pretty impressed that he managed to think of and pick out a primer but he forgot the concealer, we’ll forgive him for that though as I don’t think he really understands what it does, which is also quite a compliment as my eye bags must not be as bad as I think…
We decided to take some photos throughout the process and just voice record the comments, wing it and see what happened…
“Oh this isn’t the most even coverage”
*5 mins later* “that’s pretty even… I think”
*Jake continues to make beeping noises whilst applying to my face, I don’t know why*
“Highlight… with a highlight brush… the BIG fan”
“It’s just not going on well”
“FUCK I’ve forgotten blush, I should’ve put that on first, I’ll put it on after, I’m not with it today”
“ALRIGHT, FAACKIN HELL, the brush is just big alright”
“This is the most uneven eyeshadow EVER, I’m going to save it with the eyeliner”
“Maybe I just need to go bolder? Yeah I think I’m gonna do that”
“Yes… it’s eyeliner”
“Err…You look quite egyptian, and now I’ve gotta do the same on the other eye”
“I mean it’s probably not a look that’ll be taking the UK by storm any time soon”
“Well you can’t give up now”
“Yeah deffo, just a natural every day look”
“Just to let you know, this is what I’m gonna look like on our wedding day, I’m gonna take these photos to my MUA and be like this is what he wants and it’s what he’s gonna get, that oceanic theme”
“UM, don’t know if you are”
“I think if you did this makeup, you could actually do it really well”
So, what do you guys think? Shall I do my own take on Jakes “Oceanic” look and upload it to see if I can do it any better? (I really hope I can otherwise I’ve no idea how I worked as a make-up expert).
Hope you enjoyed this incredible look and an insight into the weird and wonderful relationship of me and Jake! Let me know if you want to see any more posts including him as we have a lot of fun making these! I think he secretly enjoys it more than I do…
