So what would be the main reason men would object to wearing makeup-is it that anything that is so related to women is therefore "effeminate" and not masculine? I'm curious. Men are getting plastic surgery and spa treatments, etc.

I'm all for the eyebrow gel stuff, that is a pet peeve of mine when guys have really unkempt eyebrows.

What exactly is eyebrow gel, is that for styling your eyebrow or help removing?

I think for most men it's the fact that it's "effiminate".

For me it's the line of taking care of myself and adding or making up myself. I'm pale, I know I'm pale, I'm not going to try and change that with coloring, but I will groom and take care of myself.

Now I've worn eyeliner on stage before, not anymore. Although I was never good at holding a pencil that close to my eyes.

But I'll also go on the record as saying I usually like women who go more natural as well...

speaking as a gay man (and writing those words make me giggle, and i sometimes want to say, "as a gay man, please pass the salt"), i am quite aware of my appearance and do spend a decent amount of money on certain groooming products. i try to buy good quality, organic-y products -- soap, shampoo, etc. -- and use an exfoliant (a kind of masque, not the grainy soap stuff) twice a week. i wash, tone, and moisturize (though not in summer, causes me to break out), i put some good product in my hair, and try to make sure that my eyebrows are in aligenment and that my nose and ears are free of hair.

however, i would never wear make-up. perhaps the eyeliner thing could be cool if i were emaciated and had a skinny tie, but i'm not so i don't wear it. i'm as big a fan of Pete Wencz as anyone, believe me, it's just not for me.

i do find it somewhat feminine, and that's fine, it's just not for me. i'm attracted to the clean, clear, healthy, and masculine, and make up isn't generally harmonious with that asthetic. i can't see myself dating someone who wore make up, either. i'd find it a turn-off (mostly because i like my men as rugged as possible).

i do once in a while consider that it would make things a bit easier -- get rid of dark circles, remove the red if one has a break-out -- but it's not a road i want to go down.

Next gathering, I'd pay good money to see that.

Eyebrow gel is for taming eyebrows, some of it is clear and some has a bit of tint to it. I don't think any of this makeup for men is blush or eyeliner or anything like that, it's more to conceal skin imperfections. One of my biggest fears is being in public without makeup, I feel much more confident about how I look with it-so how can I fault a guy for feeling the same way, why should the gender make a difference? For me masculinity is all about what's on the inside anyway. It's about balance too, I wouldn't find it at all attractive if a guy was that obsessed with his looks and looks in general that I had to fight with him for/over makeup and mirrors and he spent countless hours going to Sephora or something. I don't find women who are obsessed with looks and their own looks to be attractive either.
