    Guyliner was pretty popular during the metrosexual fad. Also was big in the 80s. icon_lol.gif

    I sure hope not.

    Anyone watch any of the Matt & Blue videos on YouTube (Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton)? Anyway, a video they posted had Matt Dallas, the actor who starred in the ABC show Kyle XY, was wearing not only eye liner, but mascara too!

    Just don't like the look. At all.

    Yikes, hopefully those guys will now use the ladies room at Target to put on their makeup.

    One of my theatre professors in college (just a couple years older than me) wore makeup in the 1970s. Never on campus, only when "off duty". I'd never known an out gay man before (and still imagined myself to be straight).

    We became friends, on a first-name basis. The first time I went to his home to ride to a restaurant with him I saw all this makeup and gaudy 1970s-style men's jewelry on his dressing table. Looking very much like a theatre dressing room counter, with a large lit mirror.

    He proceeded to put on a foundation, and eyeliner, and a hint of lipstick, and some gold necklaces. Still in his late 20s he really didn't need cosmetics, no aging to conceal. I was kinda shocked, and a little uncomfortable to be seen with him. But I learned that night an important lesson about loyalty to one's friends, which is another story.

    And so I always think of him when I encounter gay men wearing makeup. But still don't wear any myself, even though I undoubtedly could use some "repair work", these 40-some years later.

    I have news for you and that news is the fact that you are latently heterosexual (but also that straight men are latently homosexual as well), but the mechanism for your heterosexuality might be more olfactory driven then one from sight that your own homosexuality seemed to be more based upon. It's on my to do list to explain this one day...along with the physiology of a gay bottom, a "cocksucker" (a person who desires to do nothing but this), gay tops, gay perverts (an aspect to the pervert is that they are only capable of sex acts, never being receptive or proactive in sex), explain why many transmen want anal sex but not virginal sex, etc, etc. So in the day when men start wearing makeup in force (99% of women in the Western World now do), sound effeminate, etc, it will inhibit your senses (or your senses will produce an aversion to men instead) , and thus affecting your ability to have erections for men , hopefully you can be prepared for the day that you become asexual and can't be sexually attracted to anyone (but realize that you once had sexual desires, albeit homosexual desires, but you could effectively become as latently homosexual as any straight man is now).

    It's now common among men to use eyebrow pencil to darken their brows; curl their eyelashes and apply colorless mascara; use eyeliners to highlight their eyes; apply concealer to lighten dark circles under their eyes; etc., etc., etc. I don't do any of these, but I know many guys (straight and gay) who do. Who are we to judge?

    Hmm, to think of it, what I previously stated may not have made much sense, but anyways, I actually support men wearing makeup, though I realize the implications it will have for gay men and women (but so called straight men, or really fetish types, which most straight men actually are, may start getting erections for men even when gay men themselves can't for anyone anymore (it's hard to be attracted to someone with a fetish right?, if any of that makes any sense). Too many men already front and wear masks in our society, and men wearing makeup is simply the physical manifestation of that mask.

    It's been around since the 80's ... lots of straight boys wore it ... they looked pretty cute with it too ... but after a certain age, it just looks bad

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but men has been wearing make up since it was invented.
    I haven't met or seen a guy who hasn't put on make up at one point in their life.
    Such as when you go to a basketball game, body painting, Halloween, acting, better photos/ selfies.
    To unlease the inner warrior, etc. Some argue that cosmetic body art was the earliest form of ritual in human culture, dating over 100,000 years ago from the African Middle Stone Age.

    I know no man who does this, straight or gay and I think it's very unattractive on a guy. I kind of feel bad that women are sort of forced to do this crap and now men?

    Do curling your lashes and wearing light foundation prepare you for battle?

    That's Nefertiti, an Egyptian queen and I don't mean drag queen.

    Anyway, whatever someone does to their own body does not directly affect me, so why should I care?

    My fiance wears makeup sometimes. Sometimes just concealer to give himself an even skin tone, sometimes mascara, eyeliner, everything. Also wears fake nails and hair extensions too. Other times he just goes without it.

    Makes him feel complete, and better about his looks. He always looks hot and sexy to me.

    Let's not forget the glam rockers of the 70's when we look at the history of men in makeup.

    Life is voluntary, nobody is requiring anyone to wear makeup, men or women.

    Agreed. Slightly surprised at the hints of intolerance from a couple of replies!

    Wow. Despite his former alcoholism Affleck looked great for a long time, but he really hit the wall.
