Makeup for guys? What do you think? Guys, do you wear it?

There’s a lot being written at the moment about men wearing make up. What’s your view on this Both guys and gals Do you guys wear make up and if you do when do you wear it? I think make up on men is ok but sometimes a bit strange but some make up like around the eyes or certain small symbol shapes like with tattoos can look cool - a lot of entertainers wear make up every day on screen and for celebrity events as they are always in the public eye, in the press and on tv. But what about everyday. Some men wouldn’t wear make up as they think its girlish but definitely in black fashion and culture shaping eyebrows and having different hair or eyebrow symbols as a style is popular, lots of men wear jewellery and have their ears pierced and have tattoos in shapes and with pictures so why not make up. Lets see what everyone here thinks and guys tell your views if you’ve worn make up before or like to wear it or would try it

Men being vain is acceptable now. Having facial, using moisturizers, etc. But make up? I think straight guys wont wear it :) I think its not nice looking at guys with mascara and lipstick hehehe

yes its difficult to say as only women wear makeup so if there was a trend in guys wearing make up then it would have to be different from women

I think men look gorgeous in make up. I've met a lot of straight men that wear it, and it really makes them more attractive. I love it when my partner wears make up, it just makes his eyes look so amazing. historically, more men have worn make up than women. and if you look at nature, it's the male that is colourful and decorative. bring on the men in make up. and if you don't like them, then all the more beautiful men in make up for me. yummy.

Personally I don't think me should use cosmetics unless they are gay and are trying to be sure that other gay guys know they are gay.

I don't see why only gay men should be allowed to enhance their appearence. and anyway, lots of gay men wouldn't dream of wearing make up. gay doesn't mean effeminate. and as I said, it's only a very recent thing that make up was considered to be for women. it used to be more for men

Your I know I read your post in this discussion and I see that you like men in makeup. So it's cool if your guy wears it because you like it. It's just my personal opinion that I don't like it. I know that not all gey guys are feminine but some are, and those ones like makeup and stuff, there in nothing wrong with that, they are great people and a blast to shop with. But my first impression, if I saw a guy in makeup just walking down the street and he was wearing average clothes (like not goth or rock star-like) then I would assume he was gay. Maybe that's not the right assumption but I can't help that it's the first thing I would think.
