Would you date someone who wears makeup?

    Yeah, I know what you're thinking.
    I'm just wondering: Is all makeup on men a turn-off, or would you tolerate some level? And what is that level?

    I think it depends. Some well-placed/well-applied concealer to hide dark circles or a blemish is no big deal. Getting your eyebrows and/or eyelashes dyed a natural colour (particularily if you have really pale brows & lashes), again no big deal. Some funky "war paint" on your face going out to a club or a party can be fun (but it is somewhat age dictated). Beyond that...it is an individual thing. For me personally, I'm attracted to guys who don't wear make-up beyond the parameters I just outlined. I've also found in my experience that often there is an attitude that goes with the make-up...and it's not an attractive one.

    Yeah, it's that pretentious finger-snapping bitch attitude.

    Depends on how much make up we are talking about.

    My bf wears makeup - foundation and powder. No lipstick or mascara. I'm kinda torn over it. On one hand it's kinda femme and it bugs me when it gets on my clothes. On the other hand his face looks really clean and smooth when we go out. It's not that noticeable.

    My ex wore a bit of make up. I think it was foundation but I really have no idea. It was something that just hid the blemishes on his face and he only used it when he went out.

    Honestly I do think it's a bit feminine, but it's whatever. His choice, not mine, so I didn't care. It's not like he went overboard or anything.

    The makeup itself wasn't a turnoff, but his desire to look flawless kinda was =/
    He looked fine without imho.

    I'm anti-men-wearing-makeup. One of the better parts of being a man.

    If some start doing it, more will start doing it.
    If more start doing it, it will become chic.
    If it becomes chic, it will become mainstream.
    If it becomes mainstream, I have to do it because the bar is raised.

    Instead, we could all just not wear makeup and enjoy having it much easier than girls!

    If I dated and was dating someone who wore makeup, I would accidentally smudge it all the time so that it became such a bother to him that he would quit it.

    He'd have to have some major plusses for me to consider it.

    It's fine for going out to play and clubbing. I don't find the motivation behind everyday makeup very sexy (usually insecurity or a slavish devotion to glittery fashion).

    That's the argument anti-gay organizations use.

    Perhaps if it is to conceal a birthmark or anything of that sort, although I must say, I wouldn't dismiss anyone based ONLY on the fact that they wear make up. If it's not noticeable, who cares?

    If someone gets really bad acne I can sympathize why they would. It is incredibly damaging to your self esteem and general mood. If it helps them to be more happy and comfortable with themselves, then I don't see why it would be a problem

    There make up is not why I choose to date them, hence it has no impact on my choice. If they have everything else i'm looking for, sure. Its a personal preference thing.

    Actually, i forgot to mention this: The idea of makeup seems incredibly strange in my mind: I mean, you put it on only to wash it off 14 hours later.
    If someone's made-up face and non-made-up face are really different I always feel really cheated.

    It depends. If you're talking putting on makeup like a girl does, then in most cases, it would be a turn-off for me. I'm not a fan of makeup. Warrior paint is fine for parties. But lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, etc. If it's something to make him look like a girl, I'm not a fan of it.

    How sad is it that make up = looking like a girl. What does a makeupless girl look like then?

    My good friend wears Bobbi Brown concealer and an Armani embellisher.

    I have no idea why. I think because he likes to say Bobbi Brown and Armani.

    He has no trouble finding dates or people to sleep with.

    i would prefer if he didnt, but i couldt dismiss a partners and my compatability based on someting so trivial.

    BUUUUUUT. one of the MAJOR pluses of being in a gay relationship with a man, is the distinct lack of women, and therefore womens shit!

    makeup is womens shit, therefore redundant in my personal life icon_mad.gif
