Male make up questions

I'd say go for it. I'm a man myself, and I sometimes use make-up as well. There really is nothing wrong with it. I think you'd be surprised to know how many men actually use it, gay and straight. Like others have said, you're just presenting an improved version of yourself.
My advice would just be to not go overboard with it, unless that's what you want of course! I like to keep it as natural as possible, just covering the occasional blemish, and I use a little bit underneath my eyes as well. Also, make sure the product you use matches your skin colour! This is really important! It's such a pet peeve of mine, I hate it when people use foundation that's either too light or dark for their skintone. Horrible. Also, if you use the right coverage in the right amounts, people will
notice. When I was younger, I used to worry about that, so that's why I'm mentioning it.
And if you need any help with the application of the make-up, there's always youtube! There are a ton of make-up tutorials on there. And if you're in a store, don't be afraid to ask questions! Those people are there to help you! I can guarantee you, you definitely won't be the first man they'll have seen, and definitely not the last. Experiment away, I say!
