    Hm I find makeup on guys a little weird.

    However, if he just wears a little concealer for zits, I suppose thats not that big of a deal. I know for a fact that my fiance would never ever get caught dead in makeup!

    I’m sure FI won’t plan on it, but there isn’t anything wrong with it. A little concealer and powder isn’t a bad idea, really.

    My FI would never, ever, ever wear any type of makeup!  If your FI wants to, I would highly recommend that he does a trial or two first and go out in public and have pictures takes to make sure it appears really natural.

    Anchormen/male TV personalities wear it all the time for the cameras, so I don’t think it’s so weird.

    I’m not sure FI would be down with it.  I bet he’d consider it if he had a giant red zit in the middle of his face though!

    I honestly wish the hubs was open to putting on some powder or something for the wedding day. He has a really uneven skintone, and it showed in the pictures because my skin was flawless thanks to an awesome make-up artist. He’s a Photoshop pro, so he went through and fixed his skin in the photos we put in frames and in albums, but it took forever. He’s even admitted throwing on some powder would have been better than photoshopping tons of photos.

    FH has mentioned this but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.  If it makes him feel better and more confident then why not?

    My FI will be wearing a little powder, because he tends to get oily on the brow.  And I know he wouldn’t object to concealer if he had a bad zit or something like that.  I don’t have a problem with guys wearing makeup, I actually think mine is a total fox when Halloween rolls around and he lets me put a little eyeliner and mascara on him for the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  If he wanted to wear it, and it made him feel good, then I’d say go for it!

    hmm… I cannot imagine my FI wearing make up but I suppose it’s not that strange.  All the men we watch on TV have make-up on so I guess if it makes him more comfortable.  HE could also just wear a little for the formal pics and then use some make-up removing wipes before the reception?

    Mine definitely won’t consent to wearing makeup.  I’m just glad he’s finally agreed to start moisturizing!  I think my positive reinforcement and telling him how amazing he looks and how soft his skin is is helping!  Maybe I can sneak some tinted moisturizer on him. 😉

    We’re not intending to do it, but I wouldn’t look down on any guy that did.  I think it should totally be his choice.

    My SIL put some foundation on my husband for our wedding. He had one big zit on his forehead and it was red and really obvious. Also, I put makeup on him for HER wedding 3 years ago and so did HER husband….nobody could tell in photos, but they were both like, “eh, i’d rather not look like a 15 year old”. DH doesn’t have perfect skin and appreciates it when he isn’t self-conscious about his acne. It’s not like i got nuts on his face, but he gets cystic acne and sometimes he gets one REALLY bad one and i know it embarasses him. So i just offer to cover it up, promise not to make fun, and I never say anything about it. It’s a sensitive topic. I just use concealer, then set it with powder and give him a sweep with a bare minerals type powder so his face is matte. He gets oily, too, and nobody can tell.

    The makeup artist shoudl be apply to apply a SUPER light hand so his makeup looks good and not obvious or as heavy as women’s. Everybody wants good skin in their photos….
