    Any guys here wear make up?

    It's been years since I wore make up and over a decade since I wore it daily. When I came out I always wore lip gloss and mascara to school and occasionally eyeliner and foundation. I'm thinking about buying some mascara again and I'm wondering if anyone here wears makeup. Yes I knot it's a jock site. That doesn't mean everyone here is exactly the same. I'm also getting my brows shaped Tuesday so I may look into makeup to better shape them as well.

    I did for a while when I was in my late 20s - early 30s. I didn't wear much other than cover sticks and blemish concealing types of makeup, and some eyeliner. I still will wear something to cover up dark circles under the eyes if I'm going out to a party and use eye drops if my eyes are red. Other than that I haven't in quite some time either. I used to man-scape and trim the eyebrows and my beard in to a neatly manicured goatee. It got to be too difficult to maintain because my hear grows so quickly and I always have a shadow.

    Mmm well the only "makeup" I've tried doing was darkening my eyebrows and some mascara to darken my eyelashes but other than that, nothing else. I don't do it anymore but I do want to get my eyebrows cleaned up lol.

    When I was younger I used to cover blemishes with oil based foundation.

    Now that I'm older and have gotten my skin under control, I don't use anything.

    Nothing beats natural clear skin.

    I don't leave the house without a masculine "touch up" I guess. I darken my eyebrows and jawline. Then I brighten my T-Zone and under eyes to give an overall natural and well rested, healthy look.

    After reading this thread, I suddenly feel better about using a face moisturizer.

    When I was 16 I used mascara to make my mustache thicker so that I looked old enough to get into night clubs with my fake id.
    It always came off by the end of the night and I wondered how I got away with it.

    I had an ex who would use concealer on dark circles under his eyes I tried to discourage him but he insisted on it.

    I stopped dong the beard thing because my beard is too coarse and I could never have one of those nice ultra manicured beards even though my beard hair grows VERY slowly.

    That's pretty much all I'm going to do. I don't wan to feel like I have to put my face on like many women do. Just enhance a few things.

    Why? Did you think other guys don't take care of there skin. You should also use a toner after you wash your face and before you moisturize. I allows your skin to better absorb the moisturizer and toner can be used through out the day to clean and moisturize the skin. I use witch hazel.

    Was it a gay club? I feel that gay clubs have no problem letting in underage guys.

    I do use toner, actually. And night cream. I do it to avoid getting fine lines/wrinkles/etc. My boyfriend is very good about not making fun of me for it.

    My face is the only place I am oily, and it has only gotten that way in the last few years. I never had acne as a kid.

    girls need make up sometimes, boys no because they are already pretty!!!

    (Not saying you dont have to use make up, you have your reasons, but in my opinion men's are more naturally apealing)

    LOL Thanks. So are you. Putting kohl in eyes is a part of men's grooming in many cultures including mine.

    Some people can't help but complain and belittle others.
