Men in Makeup

If you don’t want to look at men with a lot of slap on, then I wouldn’t read this post. If, like me, there is nothing you like better than plotting how you are going to marry said men, then read on. I won’t lie to you, this is like porn to me.

Davey Havok:


The prominent-chinned, devilishly fabulous lead singer of AFI. Aside from being a massively, astonishingly talented singer, he looks fab. IN GLITTER EYESHADOW. Yeah.

Ville Valo:



Lead singer of HIM, he doesn’t wear as much slap as he used to, but if you want to see a guy in hot coral lipgloss, go and watch the Join Me In Death video.

David Bowie:




Need I say anything more? Dude’s been wearing slap since the dawn of time. Legend.

Eddie Izzard:



Beautiful, funny, outrageously intelligent, and looks fabulous in makeup without looking comedy drag. I like his brand of transvestism very much.

Brian Molko:



My favourite androgynous boy! Red lipstick on men FTW.

Nicky Wire:



The Manic Street Preachers are my favourite band, and their glam-rock, leopard print and lipstick phase was beautiful. The Wire still rocks the glitter and rhinestones some 20 years later. Respect.

Special mentions: Boy George, Antony Hegarty, Marc Bolan, Robert Smith, Gerard Way and Adam Ant. Oh, and Joey:



Who is your favourite man in makeup?

  4. Shhhh

    So just this last Sunday I convinced my BF to pick up some correcting primer (concealer was too much for him) for the redness around his nose. He refuses to call it makeup and is referring to it as his "magic cream."

  5. Ahh Brian Molko. Be still my beating heart.

  6. Yay! I like this post. I am not particularly attracted to men wearing makeup(I'm shallow/insecure and don't want my man looking prettier than me, haha!), but I still can appreciate a man wearing it. Plus, it wouldn't matter if I though it was horribly disgusting, people should wear what makes them happy. It's presumptuous of everyone else to think that our opinion should matter to strangers!

  14. I love me a man in makeup but I'm very specific in my tastes. Makeup on any man is good but I only fancy very few, very odd looking men. Bowie has to be my favourite on your little list. In general my favourite man in makeup is probably The Vessel from DDAHSW (yawn Lillian's going on about them again) who was just stunning in his younger years of eyeliner and glittery nail polish. And now I think he's just charming with his crinkly forehead all covered in foundation :P I also love Frank n Furter, Brian Slade, Klaus Nomi and Adam Ant

  15. I used to have a thing for straight guys in makeup that has now transitioned to gay men in makeup aka drag queens. I'm such a drag hag, I'm obsessed. Love this post.

  21. I think some men look damn hot with makeup on, and I think even more so since I've met Mika at the Illamasqua counter in Selfridges, London!

  22. @ Ruthy - I was at Leeds 2003 and saw AFI too! :)

    He is lush but I do prefer him with longer hair.

    I have an album mostly full of hotties, including many eyeliner-clad men on Facebook. My faves? Johnny Depp as Captain Jack, Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom, Synyster Gates from A7X, and my biggest man-crush EVER, Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo in Game Of Thrones. Hubba hubba!

    I LOVE this post :)

  23. I LOVE DAVEY HAVOK AND VILLE VALO! I'm actually about to post a picture of him on my blog! I'm a big AFI and I used to be a huge HIM fan before their albums started sucking (I actually have both HIM and AFI related tattoos, I'm LAME!!). AFI in concert is freakin' amazing, but HIM is just awful. When I saw them, Ville kept saying rude crap to the audience and the drummer apologized at the end of the show. It was a huge disappointment.
