Keep a guy who applies your fake eyelashes, like this San Antonio dad


Applying fake eyelashes is a time-consuming ordeal. For Juan Vela of San Antonio, it’s a tricky task worth doing for his wife of 25 years.

Juan’s daughter, Analissa, tweeted a video of the moment, and Twitter crowned it “couples goals” with more than 127,000 likes and 39,000 retweets as of Friday afternoon.

"If that ain't love then idk what is,” Analissa tweeted.

The meticulous care put into the lashes comes from the couple raising five children and Juan’s countless makeovers for his wife and two daughters, the San Antonio Express-News reports. After getting his hands dirty running a drywall and painting company, Juan is the family’s go-to beautician, doing their nails, eyebrows and hair, according to the Express-News.

"I usually get three likes on a tweet, it just snowballed," Analissa told the Express-News. "Once he saw the positive reactions he just laughed it off and thought it was was really cute."

Some Twitter users chimed in to shout-out to their own husbands, dads or boyfriends for pampering them.

Others wanted their boyfriends to step up their game.

Analissa told the Express-News that the fake eyelash application took an hour, and her mom is still kickin’ it.

"It's been two days and she still looks amazing," Analissa said.
