My Boyfriend Does My Makeup (uh oh)!

My Boyfriend Does My Makeup (uh oh)!

Hey everyone!

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).

He then went through all my drawers and makeup bag and picked these products to use:

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…

Primer: “Do I just shove this on with my hands?”

“Oh this isn’t the most even coverage”

Foundation: “I’ve definitely under-estimated how much I put on the brush” he says as he desperately tries to blend it into my face.

*5 mins later* “that’s pretty even… I think”

*Jake looks at the products he’s chosen*
“Oh my god, I’ve forgotten so much”
“Like what?”
“That brown contour-y… bits”
“Great description”
(Post primer and foundation – not bad?)
Powder: “That is WAY too much, how did that happen?”
“You’re only meant to dab the brush into powder…”

*Jake continues to make beeping noises whilst applying to my face, I don’t know why*

“Whats next?”

“Highlight… with a highlight brush… the BIG fan”

Highlight: “This isn’t um…working”
“Yeah, fan brushes are awful”
*Jake tries using powder brush to apply highlight instead*

“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”

“My lips don’t actually need highlight but thanks”

“ALRIGHT, FAACKIN HELL, the brush is just big alright”

Blush: “I’m gonna use this as a sort of contour thing, ooh yeah thats working”
*Jake puts blush on my temples*
“I can tell you’re questioning that but… yeah, you need highlight on the nose aswell”
“Oh it’s all come off on your forehead, now its all shiny”
“Well thats just great”
(Post highlight & blush)
Nacho then decided to attack us as we weren’t giving her any attention…
Eyeshadow: “Oh… oh no, can i start again?”
“Sorry, it just looks A BIT like you’ve been punched in the eye”
“That’s fine, thats all good, I love that look”
“Okay well then thats the new theme”
“Punched in the eye?”


“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”

Eyeliner:“I just really don’t wanna poke you in the eye, I’m not getting it, how do you do it?!”
“Can I do eyeliner with this?”

“Yes… it’s eyeliner”

“NOW this is where I’m gonna get clever, I’m gonna outline the eyeliner with the other eyeliner”
“Oh, god”
“Don’t fret, close your eye”
*Jake pisses himself laughing*
“Do I fret now?”

“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”

“Look at me?… oh, god”
“Think I went with the wrong theme”

“Well you can’t give up now”

Lips: “Ooh this is quite cool, very green though”
“I look like the fucking grinch”
“Can you imagine if someone came into The Body Shop and I gave them this makeover?”

“Yeah deffo, just a natural every day look”

“On a scale of 1-10 how much do you wanna kiss me right now?”
“Errr a solid … 5?”

“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”

“I need some lip balm so we can sort these Christmas lips”
“How do I look?”
“I’m ready for my close-up”

“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…

’Til next time,

    Omgggg I absolutely love this post!! What your boyfriend says is exactly what I can imagine my boyfriend saying!! He is so clueless haha! Done a pretty decent job though! ?

    • 17th July 2017 / 8:20 am

  8. 17th July 2017 / 4:36 pm

    Really enjoyed reading the little comments and the photos to go with it! Such a good way of doing this post x

    • 17th July 2017 / 5:43 pm

      Aww thank you! If I ever get the confidence to start filming I’ll deffo re-do it as it was so funny! X

  9. 17th July 2017 / 5:58 pm

    This is so funny ? You should definitely re-do his look and see if you can do it any better. You two are hilarious ?

    • 17th July 2017 / 6:18 pm

      I think I’m gonna have to set myself a challenge because I really want to see if I can do the look any justice haha! Thank you 🙂

  10. 17th July 2017 / 6:12 pm

    This was so funny! I always wanted to do a post like this but didn’t know how I’d do it if it wasn’t in video form, but this was really fun to read! Your boyfriend didn’t do such a bad job either haha well done to him! ?

    • 17th July 2017 / 6:19 pm

      I was hoping it wouldn’t be a flop as the video ones are always the best! Thanks so much 🙂 he will definitely appreciate your compliment haha! X

  11. 17th July 2017 / 6:21 pm

    This was hilarious!! I love how into your make up he is! My boyfriend has no idea what goes on in my make up drawer :’) and yes!! Please do your take on the look!

    • 17th July 2017 / 6:28 pm

      He learns more and more every day haha! 🙂 I can see why it’d be overwhelming for them… I definitely will, I’m excited to see what I can do with it! X

      Haha I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to hear that ☺️

  13. 17th July 2017 / 7:53 pm

    Tbf your boyfriend seems to have done your makeup better than mine could’ve done! When he attempted my eyeliner, he couldn’t even produce a nice curve like your boyfriend was able to do! xx

    • 17th July 2017 / 7:55 pm

      Haha!! He’s definitely gonna get big headed at all these compliments, maybe we’ll do a round 2 ? Xx

  14. 17th July 2017 / 8:39 pm

    Hahahaha this is hilarious!! Totally going to ask my bf to do my makeup and see how I end up! He’s been watching me for a good 2 years and always treats me to makeup products at birthday Christmas etc and picks perfect products so I’m intrigued!
    Thankfully most of my makeup is neutral colours so he won’t be able to go for the ‘oceanic’ theme’
    Great idea for a post! Gave me a good giggle!

      You totally should! I’d love to see how other peoples turn out, my boyf might get jealous and wanna redo this if other people’s are better ?
      Aww glad you liked ☺️ X

  15. 18th July 2017 / 9:43 pm

    This post was actually so funny to read, I love the dialogue. My boyfriend would be totally useless at this, really enjoyable post xx
