Top Ten Reasons Why Boys Should Not Be Afraid to Wear Makeup

The Top Ten
1 Boys can look better with makeup on

I'm a girl, and I think guys look SO good with makeup on. But I think they're better with small stuff like eyeliner than eyeshadow over their whole eyelid, just saying.

Like Billie Joe Armstrong or Gerard Way, I think that they look better with makeup on. But I don't focus on looks in musicians. They're musicians, so I don't care about looks. This is just an example.

I've seen many boys with eyeliner on in my school. My group of friends tried dressing up as girls once, and we got addicted.

2 It's self enhancement

I'm a straight boy, and I wear eyeliner because I like to. I feel I look better with it on.

3 Boys are not trying to be girls by wearing makeup

And girls with short hair are not trying to be boys. There is makeup specifically designed for boys.

Just because I wear eyeliner doesn't mean I'm trying to be a girl.

4 Makeup isn't made for girls

I never thought of it, but it's true. I've never seen anything saying "for women only" or anything of that nature. It's just, for whatever reason, always been assumed that it was for females. But, look at Jeffree Star, he looks fantastic with makeup on, does he not?

I'm going to halfway disagree with this one. I think makeup was originally made for girls, but guys can still wear it and look great.

By saying makeup is only for girls is like saying baggy jeans are only made for boys, which is not true. Personal care products are for everyone.

5 Boys don't look that strange with makeup on

It's dependent on what type of makeup they put on. You're not going to look hideous as soon as makeup touches your face.

6 It's simply our choice

I wear eyeliner because I want to, as do other boys. No one can rule me for it.

7 It's about ''personal care''

If you don't want people to see your pimples, just cover them up.

8 ''Boys can't wear make up'' is not a rule

No one is ruling you for it. You have the right to wear it.

9 There's nothing wrong with boys wearing makeup

I don't think anything is wrong with boys wearing makeup. My crush wears it, and he looks really cute. It's time we brought down all the gender bias. Yes, boys can wear skirts, and yes, girls can run a house!

What do girls think about this? Do you think there's anything wrong with boys wearing makeup?

10 Some boys may feel happy about wearing makeup

It's what we like. If boys like me want to wear eyeliner, it doesn't bother anyone.
