The UK’s Daily Express reported that a new research has revealed more than 3,000,000 men in the UK have confessed to wearing make-up.
The research is made by Opinium Research, found that 1/7 men – self confessed " metrosexuals" – use a wide variety of female cosmetics such as eyeliner, nail varnish and anti-ageing creams.
More than 1/4 of those men who wear make-up claim they do so at least once a week, more than 1/4 of those men who say they would not feel comfortable going to a pub without any on, according to the study.
The research also found that more than a third of the men wearing make-up borrow cosmetics from their wives or girlfriends – with 40% of the women helping them to put it on.
The most popular products for those men are hair dye, eye creams, anti-ageing make-up products, eyeliner and fake tan. But they also admit to using concealer, face powder, nail varnish, lipstick and mascara.
Besides, they still take less time to get ready than women – an average of 21 minutes for a night out rather than 41 minutes for the average woman.
"Male celebrities are seen wearing ‘manscara’ and ‘guyliner’ and everybody thinks it’s normal." James Endersby said, the head of Opinium Research.
