Thursday mornings on the Karen and Ralphie morning show, Karen gives some personal advice. It’s ask Karen! From problems big and small, Karen gives her take on life, love, work and everything in between! If you’re interested in asking Karen a question, click here.
I’m 24 and I met a new guy about a month ago and we’re really hitting it off. I know he likes me and he says he’s very attracted to me and that’s why I am a little nervous. I know we’re due for our first sleep over soon and I don’t want him to see me without my makeup on. Is it weird for me sleep with my mascara, eye shadow, face makeup and blush on when I’m with him.
I am a bit insecure and feel like when he see’s the “real me” he won’t think I’m attractive. I know our relationship is in the early stages but I don’t want to lose him.
I would love your advice.

First of all congratulations on your new relationship. I hope it all works out.
As far as wearing your makeup to bed…I completely understand I used to do the same thing. In fact, I would get up an hour before my boyfriend at the time to reapply my makeup before he got up! I think every woman has done that at least once.
What I would suggest is you slowly wear less makeup when you’re together in the house so you feel more comfortable without it on. If he likes you…trust me he’ll like you without all your makeup on. He may even be more attracted to you!
Either way…it’s more your issue than his.
