How to Resist the Temptation to Use Makeup if You Are a Man
Offered in balance to the article about How to Apply Makeup as a Man, this article is intended to suggest some benefits of resisting that temptation, if you are a man.
The focus is to help the uncertain male of the species identify his goals when considering whether to add a vanity table to his powder room. These days, the urban cultures of the world are attempting to smooth out the bumps that form the differences between genders and their identities. It's reasonable to expect that this might work out better for some than others. Consider the following actions while weighing your options.
..trying to make yourself more appealing, yes: but to whom? Do you want to impress someone? Learn a new skill? Just hide a few blemishes? Once you pinpoint this, you can begin with just wearing some BB cream and clear mascara.
..Who is drawn to a man wearing makeup? Asking a variety of women if they would date a man wearing makeup, you'll probably get a resounding, "No!" Some woman, though, are fine with it. If you only use a bit, maybe some BB cream, a spoolie and some clear mascara most woman will be fine with it as no one will notice it.
Some people won't care what you look like, but some will, and if those who have a negative response are in charge of some important aspect of your career or something that could impact your future...be prepared! Imagine how disappointed you might be if your after-hours indulgence in bronzer and eyeliner hit the watercooler area and snuffed out a promotion.
Use a BB cream, a spoolie (to brush out your eyebrows) and clear mascara. If you want, you can add an eyeshadow a couple of shades darker than your skin tone on the lid of your eye.
