    Male movie stars wear makeup, so I could see it working for a wedding. My guy would never go for it.

    Full on drag however…not my taste.

    SO does now and then when we go to a big concert or “goth night” at one of the local clubs.

    I think he looks hot in it then, but I’d be weirded out if he wore it often.

    To each their own I guess, I don’t know how different it would be than putting something on for tv or pro photo shoots.  I have seen some pics of guys were they were totally washed out or you couldnt see their eyes, so I can kind of understand why a few might do it.  My guy would never never never entertain the thought, I think that if he thought I was serious in suggesting it he would prob be pissed.  He is just a plain and simple guys guy.

    I should have put “in context/ style” but NO, 99% of all males are not makeup compatible.

    Some guys can pull it off, and I think it looks good. 

    I think I would be a bit insecure being with a man who wears eyeliner on a regular basis, though.  ONLY because I probably only wear makeup once a month or so.  I’m not a girly-girl in that respect.  So I would feel like he was “out-doing” me or something LOL 

    DH would NEVER be able to pull it off.  The thought of him in makeup makes me giggle.

    I love his answer! Sounds like my FI. I don’t think he would go for it, but I think it would look good on him. He has a really pretty face. I go for pretty and metro kind of guys. Hahaha

    Unless you are Billy Joe Armstrong, Jared Leto, Gerard Way, Brandon Flowers, or Johnny Depp…you probably can’t pull it off. I would be kinda weirded out if I’d never seen my guy in it and then he busted it out for the wedding day.

    the word “guyliner” bugs me more than anything else, haha. if a dude wants to wear makeup, it’s whatever.

    @cardus:  Wait, wait, wait….Pony tail, black nails, guitar AND he’s never wore guyliner?!

    There is something VERY wrong with that.
