Personally, I’m not into it – maybe if he was rockin’ the whole guyliner thing, but when your man is wearing more MU than you are… there is reason for concern, is there not?
Which is not to say that I like my guys to be all butch and manly – hair gel is a godsend, and a boy with skincare routine gets bonus points in my books! But I’m drawing the line at liner, maybe a bit of concealer for acne (NOT undereye circles!) – call me sexist or whatnot, but any more and I’m hitting the hills.
Side story: There’s an SA at our Sephora that a friend and I have nicknamed DiorBoy. Asian, gorgeously high cheekbones… wears so much makeup babies may cry. It’s all applied fabulously and meticulously, though – not a pore in sight, though that thick but creaseless layer of foundation. He even does blush – always peach! The reason for the nickname? He’s their Dior boy. If you ask him for help with a product, he will recommend Dior, and nothing else. His station is littered with it – I think he used to work at the Dior counter in the Bay before Sephora nabbed him (they used to have a very made-up Asian boy right up until Sephora hit the city. Logic says it’s the same one.) (Either that or he’s the creepiest fanboy ever)
DiorBoy is very bad for my friend’s wallet. Not mine, because I have self-restraint, but he once talked her into a $40 blusher when she was in for mascara. Loves him to bits!
So? What are your thoughts on men who wear makeup?
(Alternate question: your favourite celeb eye candy + a full face of makeup, including blush and lipstick. Still love ’em?*)
