Would you or have you ever worn make up as a male.

If so, then when and what situation?

If not, then why not

Would you like to see more men wearing make up, and what are your reasons for a yes or a no answer?

The only reason I would wear make-up would be for acting or if I was in a post-punk/new wave band.

So basically it's very unlikely to happen.

Only this one time at a party when some girls asked me to wear lipstick and I immediately said yes.

In my defense, I looked gorgeous
#4
I for some reason constantly have red cheeks like I'm embarrassed 24/7 and I'd wear something to cover them in my skins tone but saying that I'm far too lazy for make up

I should note that my position on not wearing makeup is more in line with my general apathy about how I look in day-to-day life than any belief that men shouldn't do it or whatever

What would be the point? It's not common or expected for men wear makeup like it is for women, so why go through the hassle of putting on makeup every day?

Don't see why make-up would need to be gender specific.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

I have not worn make up as such (I'm not counting face paint) however when I went through my emo phase when I was younger I used to colour my nails in black using a permanent marker because I was too masculine to use nail polish.
#16
Men should only wear make up when they are acting. Any man who wears make up just to look nicer or whatever is no man at all and should be imprisoned for not being manly enough.

I have never worn make up and never will.
I have nothing important to say

if I could enhance my fabulousnesss without it being noticeable then sure maybe I'd try it
like just mascara or smth

but really my skin is fine and there's no societal expectation for perfection so cba

I had a spot on my nose at Year 11 prom and my mum wanted the photos to look nice so she put concealer on it thanks mom

i've used concealer a couple times before but i checked 'no' cause i figured that's not what you meant
#26
wore eyeliner to a party once
i think any amount of make up is fine as long as the rest of your aesthetic matches

never again tho just because putting it on is just why

how do people do this every day jesus christ no ty

it's all just coming back
it's all coming back

it's all coming back to me

I do pretty regularly if I'm going out or need to look nice for an event at work or something. I don't wear tons of makeup though, just a bit of concealer around the eyes, matte powder to soften the way my face looks, sometimes a very small amount of blush to make it look more natural, and some lip balm to keep the lips hydrated.

Does lip balm count as make up?

I think everyone should wear less makeup.


I agree.

I don't, and haven't worn it. (television appearances and Halloween parties excepted)

I don't think women should feel the need to either, it's unnecessary. If you're attractive you don't need to, if you're not makeup won't fix it.

Be who you are.

Women doing eyeshadow/liner/mascara etc. literally adds to much to their appearance though same with eyebrows / lips etc. which might not do a lot but a girl putting on some eyeshadow can really elevate her whole experience it's like bothering to brush your hair in the morning or put on a nice aftershave

I personally don't think so in most cases. People with makeup don't look better to me, they just look like a person with added makeup. Of course if they themselves think they look better with makeup, then they should feel free to wear the stuff. Their own thoughts on the matter are/should be most important.

I don't agree, I prefer people as they are. Clean and neat isn't the same as artificially altered. I do agree with the above though, it's not up to me. I don't think less of a person because they choose to use makeup (unless they pile it on like spackle...), I just feel it's unnecessary.

Is it possible that you only think it "adds" to their appearance because you've grown up with certain expectations of beauty?

There are many cases in which I think a person with make up will look really good

and also the opposite case

It's all in the application really. A bit like clothes.

I don't have any problems with a man using makeup. Why not? Women cheat their asses off using makeup.

I wore makeup one time. Got clobbered by another kid and had a big bruise on my cheek. My sister put some "base", whatever the hell that is, on it to hide it. Worked pretty well.

Never wore makeup. Don't really intend to either.


Don't care if dudes want to use makeup. I'll just lol to myself a bit.

I definitely have a thing for the smokey dark eye look and some winged eyeliner but like…I wouldn't say I have been conditioned that way as an "expectation of beauty" and similarly if it's done badly then it's better not to have been done at all.
