I've hesitated in writing this. When I'm told that a husband has to co-sign on a lipstick choice, or asked what kind of makeup is acceptable to men, I pause. To me, makeup is such a highly personal and individualized form of expression, that I can't imagine asking anyone for their approval of it. And yet, because I do respect divergent points of view, I feel compelled to answer. It's been said that boys (men) are terrified of hair and makeup. More accurately, their fear is of unblended pigments, vibrant, saturated colors and mismatched foundation shades. I say this after countless consultations after which a man's opinion, and ultimately authorization, is sought. The scenario is usually something like this: "Don't make her look like a clown," followed by nervous laughter. I smile professionally and give polite assurance, realizing Ive never actually seen any artist do work that looked like a clown unless of course I'm remembering the time I was backstage at Ringling Brothers Barnum Bailey Circus. But I digress. Menfolk seem most appreciative of nude pinks, blush in the same tone, neutral shadow and liner, and separated lashes, not over curled or obviously mascaraed. False lashes must not look false, and save the brow drama for Instagram because highly, darkly, defined brows are definitely discouraged. So there you have it. This having been said, however, I'm going to throw in my worthless two cents. At day's end, it's your face, your makeup, your business, and your life. Enjoy it and do what you want with it. If someone, no matter who, is in disagreement with your lip color or eyeshadow choice, instruct their gaze elsewhere. When you think of everything that you do in the course of a day for everyone else, doesn't your makeup deserve to be yours and yours only?? I do.
