I know what you’re probably thinking; the guyliner trend is so over. It disappeared along with everything “scene” or “emo” about ten years ago. So, to offset that corrupted way of thinking here are twelve guys who continue to prove that guyliner is here for the long run, and the notion that makeup is strictly for girls is so pathetically medieval.
1. Brendon Urie
I chimed in with a, “Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn….eyelid and putting some guyliner on it?”
2. Jared Leto
30 Seconds to Mars or thirty seconds from the makeup aisle? If you want to look anything like this christlike man, I’d suggest the latter of the two.
3. Ryan Ross
Ryan Ross may have dropped out of Panic! At The Disco and seemingly of the music scene in general, but his eyeliner efforts are still duly noted and kept sacred in our hearts.
4. Pete Wentz
Couldn’t have said it better myself. At one point, Pete even launched his own personal makeup line called “WentzPentz”, sold exclusively at Hot Topic. True dedication.
5. Dalton Rapattoni
A beautiful young human with beautiful makeup skills. Lead singer from Fly Away Hero, you are my hero.
6. Brandon Flowers
It doesn’t take a genius to see that Brandon from The Killers, looking simply dapper in his guyliner, is quite the killer himself. Lady killer, that is.
7. Billie Joe Armstrong
Stop being such an American idiot and acknowledge this guyliner god in whom we trust.
8. Gerard Way
It would appear as though Gerard is almost anxious about how superb his style is.
9. Michael Clifford
He looks so perfect standing there, in the guyliner he never forgets to wear, and I know now, that I’m so down.
10. Cam Gigandet, aka “Jack” from Burlesque
This hit Christina Aguilera dance film clearly would not have attained all its success had Cam not graced the screen with his presence, and more importantly, his guyliner.
11. Darren Criss
This Glee star isn’t afraid to accentuate those gorgeous eyes in whatever way he sees fit, and for that we salute him.
12. Johnny Depp
Last but not least, the legendary Johnny Depp is an avid supporter of all forms of self-expression, manly makeup included. Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum, and maybe a tube of eyeliner just for fun. Aye aye, Cap’n.
So girls, whip out those magic pencils and show your man how it’s done. For those of you fellows who don’t have a girl to help you out, maybe if you invested some time in the facial art department, you wouldn’t be having such trouble in the lady department.
