Men’s Make-Up

Russell Brand is the Katy Perry of men's cosmetics. (Click image)

Finally, men can come out of the closet…and we are not talking about their sexuality here, rather, that men can openly say they use cosmetics and still maintain their butchness…ish. The New York Times Style section has an article about the rapidly growing market of cosmetics created exclusively for men. I love that the evolution of man boils down to his desire to maintain his youth and beauty. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. On the contrary. When men became admitted metrosexuals…though I prefer the term Manzies for this purpose…all bets were off. Suddenly, “straight” men were allowed to wear a pink Ralph Lauren Polo Shirt…collar up, sport an over-sized purse and drink cocktails with titles.

Zac Efron should do a deal woth MAC Cosmetics...if you ask me.

The men’s cosmetics industry is in fact booming and I applaud those who create the product lines and the men who use them. Let’s all be honest…who doesn’t want to look the best they can? Lord knows I tweeze and cover whatever is not locked down to my personage. And if you look at the “boys” on the Jersey Shore…you’d think that Snooki and JWoww were the guys in the house.
