Now, before we start I would like to make it quite clear that MrQ wouldn’t wear make-up, I can barely get him to moisturise! Shampoo, body wash, deo, aftershave balm and a teeth clean and he’s done, ready to go. And I am happy with that, he looks good and who wants a husband who spends more time in front of the mirror than them?
There has always been the need for actors and performers to wear make-up when they are working, I get that.
There have also always been blokes who will wear make-up to create their public persona, to get noticed, to cause controversy…I understand that.
I can also understand the need to cover up imperfections, to look your best, and I guess if a man feels the need to use make-up to do that then I am OK with that too.
Before the boys dip into the Revlon, slap on the Maybelline or trowel on the Max Factor I think a bit of guidance is required. Something along the lines of:
Less is more:
|Zac Efron goes girlie...|
A natural look is best:
|John Travolta channeling his "heart attack" look|
Eye-liner has the word EYE in it for a reason:
Leave the blusher for the girls:
|Daniel Redcliffe...who laid off the booze just in time.|
Maybe skills should be taught in schools, at footy training and the office…
...cosmetic companies could clean up.
I myself am unconvinced, call me old fashioned, don’t want to share my lippy with my man.
What do you think?
