one reason may be to look more attractive to the opposite gender, although there are of course other reasons (such as improving self-esteem or just wanting to look prettier. peer pressure may also be at play). guys also want to be more "attractive" to the opposite gender, but in this case, being muscular-fit is considered attractive, which explains many of them obsessed with abs and weight-lifting.

yeah I think mostly though its problem of what is considered ''dress'' or ''feminine''
because there is boxy dresses/tunics etc that resemble very much a big shirts that dudes could wear with like leggings or something just like girls do and i wouldn't think they look any less masculine for it
Of course it's not "feminine", not that it would matter.
Also btw my sis taught my school friends to put make up on, since nobody liked acne and other nasty stuff in puberty. Until you get medication that makes it better (that coukd take some weeks), it's really good to have make-up in the meantime. It helps a bit at least, so why don't use it?
Oh yeah right, because of no homo, that looks gay and so on. Like I said, this type of no homo-straight guys is just so boring and uninspiring. Just put a little bit color on their face or nails and they go through an existential crises. :D
Okay maybe not, but painting drunken, sleeping male friends nails was still funny tbh ... most didn't care too much, but still were "ewww I look feminine...?"
Before you say something, I woke up with drawings on my skin too, that's just fair.
Okay but tell me why I wouldn't want dudes to go around dressing like this
it'd be much more visually pleasing than the boring sweat suits at least :c
also are we just going to ignore that ancient dude outfit options were full of dresses?
Extreme cases are never a good example and especially stage outfits from artists aren't a good example.
Most people don't look like this
i mean true but i just wanted to say its not like entire male race looks shitty in feminine things or revealing things or bold makeup :c they can look cool too
and tbh some girls clothes look even better on dudes than girls if they just pair it right and are ready to slay
because the fact is many ''feminine'' clothes were originally made for dudes
True, although I dunno.. don't like him or his outfits, but true.
I mean, I don't particular like most of these skirt-styles on men, or maybe I'm not used to I dunno, but I found this guy. Can't tell he's looking bad. REALLY can't say that haha.
It just looks weird, if they wear dresses and skirts for women, since, as I already said, the anatomy is different and doesn't fit waist and hips and dresses have room for breasts, which they don't have. So it looks weird how the fabric falls. I mean, I must know, we tried lol.
There should be more dresses and skirts made for men, just for the people, who would like them.
If you don't like them, ignore them, simple as that.
@Maneki-Mew Well I'm a hetrosexual man and I like to see female ass, so no matter how slutty it looks it's pleasant and appealing to look at. Girls can wear miniskirts and hotpants, men shouldn't be allowed to do that for the greater good (majority aren't gay). It's traumatizing.
Girls who wear it usually are quite hot and want to show off, when men wear it it's only to show off how gay they are, that's the impression I get at least
Greater good my ass, as someone who's an American who values something like basic freedoms, I think as long as your not going out stark naked, you ought to be able to wear anything you want.
I wish more people had this world view. Who the hell cares if a guy wants to walk around in a skirt? Or minishorts? It doesn't bother me what they wear, and I know that those people would be happy to actually wear what they want without getting bullied for it.
I mean, I'm often thinking something about someone else's looks but for like 10 seconds and then minding my own business again.
I love makeup I could probably spend hours experimenting and trying new things.
I also like cosplay so being good at makeup comes with the territory(✿◠‿◠)
The reason why men don't wear it is cultural it's seen as a feminine thing, although in certain cultures like South Korea men do wear makeup.
They also use to wear makeup in ancient Egypt.
It can definitely look good on men just look at James Charles he looks fabulous😜
Same, but now, if it's not done in max. 20 minutes, it's not worth it. I'm too impatient and lazy. Only for a ball or cosplay I'd invest more time. ^^"
The plastic doll-look fucks with my brain, but I think it was this guy whose video gave me eyeliner tips, so I'm still thankful, although I think he's the definition of TOO MUCH haha
Eliminating gender stereotypes and no longer expecting any gender to behave a certain way is like draining the color out of the world and making it black and white.
By adding more colors, you make the world black and white. That makes sense.
Now if guys who are straight would get the confidence to go out in whatever they want to wear like James Charles does, we'll be making some progress
Of course, of course, props for his self-confidence. You take a lot for doing stuff like that.
Although it's not conducive for guys to wear make-up, if they always see men with so much overdone make-up.
There should be, besides people like him, also be well-known guys, who wear more of the "daily life make-up". A little bit more than the "you can't see it make-up", but something you can wear in your life.
But to think of that: the make up and style of many actresses, female singers etc. is also not something you could do in daily life. The fewest people get up two hours earlier or so, but I had a collegue in a course of university, she did that every damn day and looked gorgeous.
I don't know either what kind of life form these people are ... I'm always glad I'm there, awake and don't look like shit.
EDIT: I saw his new body paint, that's really stunning, woah!
Well, I view this kind of use / overuse of make-up much more as an art form than something you actually should wear.
