The Sizzle Query: Men In Make-Up
Guyliner: what’s your take on Adrian Mutu’s inner-eye rim job?
We might encourage the impression that we’re hardened harridans who, when not falling-over-drunk, can usually be found criticising some poor individual’s dress sense, but we are actually quite tolerant. Quite frankly, we don’t care whether you’re male or female, play for Real Madrid or Rotherham United, as long as you rock an individual style and look sexy while doing it, we don’t give a crap.
See, not as shallow as you thought, huh?
We therefore receive today’s news that Steven Gerrard (among others) has been outed as a make-up wearer by Katie Price’s bezzie mate and stylist Gary Cockerill, with some interest. Gary was at the couple’s wedding in 2007, and aside from taking care of Alex’s look that day, he also claims to have assisted the Liverpool and England midfielder in ‘dealing with his imperfections’.
‘Imperfection’ is not a word that is even allowed to stroll past the Kickette office unaccosted so we’re more than happy for our boys to embark on a foundation driven quest for self-improvement. However, it’s not the first time Stevie has had to face some grief for his guyliner, although applying eye kohl for the purpose of a Liverpool fancy dress Christmas party is a solid alibi.
Aside from the annoyance at having to wait for your man to get ready to go out, and finding he’s mullered your concealer into the bargain, do you generally approve of this next step in metrosexual evolution? If it’s okay for women to enhance their natural assets, why is it perceived as odd if a guy wants to do the same? Or do you prefer your man to be rugged, ruthless and not reliant on Revlon?
The floor is open. Fill it with love and clever thoughts, please.
