Is it normal for a straight man to wear makeup?

I’ve suffered from terrible acne all my life, even now in my early twenties I still get acne, and while it’s less then it used to be, my skin still has scars black heads and acne. I’ve tried so many skin care things and diet changes but I’ve never gotten it cleared up, so I wear make up, it makes me feel a lot better about myself and a lot more confident most days, but also despite it being non toxic healthy makeup it has made my skin look worse when I take it off, so I wear more now.. IIN? Or rather is it ok? It is frustrating because I feel really insecure about my skin, so much so that I wouldn’t dare let a soul see me without it on.

Is It Normal?

  • Meh, I see no issue with it. Why ask if it's normal for a straight guy? Wearing makeup doesn't make you gay. Being sexually attracted to men does. Lol

    • of course it doesn't, Im just specifying my specific demographic because its obvious that straight men as a whole probably wear the least amount of makeup of any demographic. I didn't ask if it makes me gay, of course it doesn't.

  • It's normal to want to look better but wearing makeup that ultimately makes the issue worse isn't good.

  • Acne scars are awful to have. But men with makeup don't look straight.

  • Dude ill tell you the best thing for acne that no one listens to. Just wash your face with soap and water like 3 times a day. It helps ALOT. since you are in your 20s it should start going away soon. If you take opioids it will make it worse tho. Also if you have long hair.

  • Probably not considered normal but probably should be. Men should be allowed to cover up their facial flaws too. Have you tried Proactive Solution for several months?

  • Unless you're in a rock band... no.
    If yes, go wild. Glam rock was awesome.
