I cannot believe how judgmental some people are. Now, I'm not naming anyone in particular because I see it everywhere, and your opinion is your opinion. But if someone wants to wear make up, they damn well could. If someone wanted to do ANYTHING that isn't "accepted by society" boohoo, they can do it.
I'm sorry if my response seems a little abrupt, but I just get pretty defensive on topics like this because I basically live in a judgmental and superficial community and a lot of people I know are afraid to express themselves. But if someone disagrees with me then that's fine. That's your opinion and I respect that.

Well I always ask should women wear makeup, too. Should anybody wear makeup? Why do we? Ahah. My stance on it is me personally, I don't use makeup to feel comfortable- I don't use it to look my best- I don't use it to try to attain beauty standards. I use it because I like it. I understand that what I'm doing is kind of giving into society's idea of what girls SHOULD do or else they're undesirable. That's what makeup is usually for. But I understand that. And I don't think women should feel the need to use makeup. So same with guys! Guys don't have to. Women don't have to. But if we want to- let's do it! And make it artsy. You know? We can't be sexist like "No, men can't wear makeup! That's gross." I mean- we're all born without makeup. That's how we naturally are. So you'd think if you thought men wearing makeup is gross- you'd feel the same way about girls too. But anyways, you just have to think outside of the box. Makeup isn't a big deal. Anyone should be able to use it but shouldn't feel the need to.

Makeup is a tool. It should be considered available to anyone who is interested. It can be used in so many ways-- to correct and even out skin-tones or as a means of self-expression, and everything in between.
I adore learning about new techniques and love seeing other people do the same and share their knowledge.
It's neither for men nor women. It's for everybody!
I have absolutely no problem with it! Makeup is fantastic, why shouldn't everyone get to play with it? I'm a big fan of playing with gender/androgyny so men in makeup are right up my alley.
I have a few male friends that wear eyeliner, lipgloss, mascara and sometimes when we go out they make me feel like the ugly princess because they look so freakin' flawless. Now if my man wore it...there would be a serious problem. He wears a goatee and has sun damage so on him it would be a definite NO.lol
I think men should be able to use makeup! I hide behind my makeup bc of my battle with acne. So why shouldn't my bro hide his as well since he is battling acne as well. I have put makeup on him to cover his flaws. It doesn't change my opinion on him or make him any less of a man. But men have flaws like we do and they have a right to conceal them like we do.

Men should be allowed to do as they please
A little concealer on a daily bases, hey acne happens and it's not always joyful to deal with
As long as the man doesn't look cakey, totally cool by me to do whatever they want xD

Men have been wearing make up for centuries from the Pharaohs to stage actors. In film and television its common practice. In moderation I don't see an issue, as long as the individual is happy wearing make up then its no issue. When it comes to application or look it depends on what the person wants and feels comfortable with from concealer to full make up. Judgement lies in the wearer.

Something that has been brought up is that men wearing makeup is not manly. I would like to ask how. Is taking care of your appearance a feminine thing? Are only women expected to put effort into their appearance? Are only women expected to be flawless and men only expected to look bad because it's 'more manly'? At one point, wearing pants was also considered manly and not socially acceptable for women. How many of us own pants today? This is the same with makeup.
What makes things 'wrong' or 'weird' is our biased perception. Who are we to tell others what they 'should' do? If a man wants to wear no makeup, a little bit, or a lot, that's no one's choice but his.
So whether he wants to have bright pink lipstick and glittery eyebrows or no makeup at all, as long as he's happy, who are we to judge?

I think everyone should be able to express themselves how they please!
Guys should wear makeup if they want to. More so face makeup, girls can cover up their flaws so why can't guys? I think the only reason they don't is because they have no idea what any products do or how to apply them. Its a huge mystery to them haha! Sometimes my boyfriend has asked me to conceal his under eyes when hes had a rough night and needs to look good for something:)
I wouldn't be freaked out if a guy wore concealer. But foundation, eye shadow to fill in the brows....idk. That's a bit much. But to each it's own.

My boyfriend has a concealer which he sometimes uses to cover pimples if he has any.. He also uses chapsticks:) He's very into his appearance, so he has a lot of clothes, shoes, accessoires and perfumes. I love it! It only gets annoying if he takes longer to get ready than me:)
I'm totally fine with guys wearing make up.
I mean it's their life so I'll support their decision. ^-^
A man wearing makeup makes them not manly?
*head desk times 1000 walks in front of moving train*
If makeup helps anyone feel more confident, expressive, or happier, I think it shouldn't matter male or female. Most men aren't even aware of what makeup can do for them, and I suspect if they were and they knew how to apply it so it was unnoticeable, they would be receptive to it. It's more about educating :)
I think it is strange but if Men do want to try makeup please do so.. :3 x

Yes sir! If woman can wear makeup to enhance their natural beauty, why not a man? Adam lambert is a perfect example, an extremely attractive man made even more attractive by a little eyeliner :)
Yes, anyone should, including men! From barely there, to drag fabulous and everything in between. Makeup is great for any person, regardless of how they identify themselves, and it should be made available to anyone that is interested.
My husband wore foundation.... Vvv light on the wedding day. Helped the photography lights bounce well. He's not worn it again but I don't c tge problem if that's all he wants. Equality n all.

Pretty sure Lady Gaga IS catholic and is very open about her faith in Jesus. You don't KNOW Lady Gaga personally, do you? No because none of us do. She's an artist, she does racy things for her art. She isn't promoting Satan or any such thing just because she includes fake blood in her performances. Unless you are her close personal friend you shouldn't be spewing about her "Satanic" way of life. But you'd probably tell me that because I'm a special effects artist and create effects using fake blood and limbs that I worship Satan too, right? That isn't the case but I'm sure you would judge me the same way you've judged Gaga, based on that one fact alone, right?
I don't give a flying shit what religion you are, judging people you don't know at all is wrong. If you only cared about living your life the way you choose to then you would have never made comments about the lifestyles of others such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj and wouldn't have labeled them as Satanic. I've seen all of Lady Gaga's videos and you arent going to convince me that she's Satanic. And even if she was why do you care? She would have just as much of a right to practice Satanism as you have to practice your religion. Have you ever even done any research on Satanism? Or do you just say its bad because that's what you're told by YOUR religion?
I don't think anybody should**** wear makeup because it is absolutely not a necessity, but I highly encourage any male that wants to try out makeup to do so.
i dont think they should
no, thats weird... i would freak out if my boyfriend put on makeup. hes supposse to be manly! lol.
