    If a boy wears makeup, does it alter how you view the person or change your perspective on them? What are your opinions?

    Personally, I do wear makeup because it makes me feel good (besides feminine makeup such as mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow,etc)

    I also just uploaded a video of a high coverage make up tutorial if any of you would like to check that out! I wouldn't advise wearing it to the gym though icon_smile.gif

    If it makes you feel better about how you look, why not? I personally wouldn't wear makeup, though (my pores are so big Sherwin Williams couldn't cover them up, so why bother?).

    Secondly do you baby. Don't let what others deem acceptable dictate what you do with your life or your body. All what matters is how you feel about your life choices.


    age is only a number! i just put in whatever age, i wasn't overly concerned about it. thanks for the kind words! appreciate it

    Your point being....?

    There isn't a single man on TV today who isn't sitting under an inch of foundation, even those big shot macho guys on Sports Center and ESPN. Not a one of them is wearing eye shadow or mascara, though, that's for sure. Or lip gloss.

    if you were to look at my profile picture, and then look at this picture http://data.whicdn.com/images/6477257/16335_212966723210_51349283210_2973856_5893880_n_large.jpg ,
    usually people will say that the linked picture is more feminine than foundation, concealer or powder. there is a line between my look, and gregory's look.

    My point is it's silly to label different makeup products as "masculine" or "feminine". All sorts of people use makeup in all sorts of ways for all sorts of reasons. It's unnecessary to label makeup products with gender roles.
    It's just makeup.

    Just because they aren't doesn't mean certain things are more girly than others. We make the labels. The labels don't make us.


    Yeah I agree with that. Just to clear things up, I am not trying to claim or imply that my vichy dermablend is rugged and masculine haha. I thought that was a given, however I am not attempting to look womanly or accentuate woman-like features

    I feel like make-up is a lie...

    If you find someone you like then they will HAVE to find out, what if they don't like how you look without it.. I would feel SO Self-Conscious.. I don't need to add to that feeling anymore

    its possible that there wasnt a difference if you normal skin with no shine. but it will prepare you for the dancefloor a little better for sure. powder is your friend while clubbing

    i feel like make up, and style of clothes go hand in hand. they are both ways to express yourself and (if done properly) ways to accentuate things that you like about yourself.

    makeup, like clothes, can also be used to be a lie, like you said. (super dramatic makeup and spanx/triple push up bras for women)

    I once had a male flight attendant as a guest. He'd left a toiletry bag open on the bathroom vanity and it was loaded with concealer, pancake makeup and if I recall correctly, blush. Funny thing is, he didn't look any different to me with and without it and I considered it a waste of time and money but if it made him happy, fine.

    Why do you think women's looks age faster than men icon_biggrin.gif

    Personally I find that day-to-day makeup is one of the places where women got it seriously wrong.

    I definitely understand the "need" for it in the various avenues of the entertainment industry, but as part of a sort of everyday beauty regime I'm not a fan of it, and it actually tends to make people look worse as it's usually visible up close.

    Back when I was modeling I constantly always had to have make up on for the photo shoots. After the transformation was done, it almost seems like the person you're looking at in the mirror is no longer you. Just don't lose yourself to what you see in the mirror, because make up is not permanent, and eventually it will have to come off.

    Personally if i'm not in front of a camera working I don't see a reason to have it on. I personally don't like it, but it comes with the job.

    I do agree with one guy that stated that make up can age you. It's not necessarily women per say that age faster it's either men or women that do not take care of themselves that age faster. icon_smile.gif

    Here's a suggestion, smile when you take a picture. You look good in the second profile pic with the jacket on.

    I always think that the vast majority of people look so much better without it. I thought the same thing when I saw your video.

    I agree. I avoided dating women that wore make up more then eyeshadow. I think drag queens just look like clowns. Like plastic surgery it's more about vanity of the individual or looking good in photographs since I don't think it is very attractive in real life.

    Rece, I myself don't find makeup on a guy repulsive, on myself yes, unless it's covering up a blemish or something, but it can accentuate features to an already good looking person.

    Hmm, I knew I should have posted something on that older man eyeing thread...

    That's the point of drag queen makeup. They're supposed to wear a lot of over-the-top makeup because (a)they're caricatures of women, and (b)they need to transform their face.
