You'd be surprised how many good looking guys have a tiny bit of make-up on. Tinted moisturizer to even out skin tone, a touch of concealer, eyeliner and mascara. Generally not all of the above but I'd say about 60% of the guys I know who care about fashion indulge in a little makeup. It does they exact same thing for men as it does for women - enhances natural beauty and hides minor flaws.

For work I wear a tinted moisturizer, NARS blush and mascara. Sometimes a bit of lipstick if I need a pick-me-up. I prefer to stay natural at work.

If I'm going out at night, I'll jazz up with some eyeliner and eyeshadow. I use Lancome Artliner for eyeliner and Kat Von D eyeshadows.

In general, I think natural is best. But I appreciate a good makeup artist!

I love putting on makeup! Light makeup for daytime is a must for me: Light eye shadows (well blended!), tinted moisturizer to even out tone, muted/smudged liner, some mascara for length, a hint of blush on the apples of my cheeks, and light peach to clear lip gloss. At night--same thing but a little bolder with color and eyeliner.

I tried a bit of makeup for the Xmas party I went to, but the tinted moisturizer didn't do a thing for me~!!

I rarely wear makeup, but I've got a dinner date tonight with a guy who has never seen me in makeup and I think I'm gonna vamp it up a bit I'll be using light bb cream, wet n wild liquid eyeliner (super cheap and its the best liquid eyeliner I've ever used!) eyebrow pencil, physicians formula dark brown eyeshadow and just a tad bit of an emerald eyeliner under the eyes and Burts Bees tinted lip balm. Throw on a little black dress with patterned tights and some heeled booties and then Ill be done

I dont really like makeup, but it can be super fun to play with

I love makeup (ex theatre kid), and think it's fun, but I find that I look best with a minimalist approach.

Typical for me is moisturizer, some translucent powder to even out skin tone as needed, mascara (I have blonde lashes), and a light lip color. If I'm going out for something special, I'll usually have a slightly more bold lip and line my eyes with a dark brown powder shadow and a fine brush, and smudge it a little for a non-intense, slightly smoky eye look. I have very pale green eyes and very fair skin, so a little bit of definition goes a long way.

I don't really like to buy expensive makeup, and keep it mostly to drug store brands (Revlon lip butters are my go-to tinted gloss right now), and old school Coty Airspun loose powder is probably my longest-lived staple and signature cosmetic. I instead splurge a little more on skin care products...starting with good skin means having to wear less makeup.

Funny -- in the previous post, you didn't like it. I have the same love hate relationship with new makeup.

There's a learning curve to applying makeup. And it's not like painting where you can wait for the paint to dry and slap on more or a different color, since you can't take it off and put it on and take it off and put it on without irritating your skin -- and then the cost of trying things and tossing them, if you can't take them back.

I enjoy wearing makeup, when what I wear WORKS. I've had to give up drug store stuff -- none of it works on me, except for Loreal mascara.... and I just bought a new one and I'm not happy with that ...not sure if it's just this one, or if they changed it.
