      Nice piece of beauty treatment for the "modern man"

      I think when I hit my mid thirties I started to have a bit of a mid-life crisis, I became more conscious about my looks as they started to fade through age (as they generally do). I also started to experiment a bit more and tried things out that I have never thought about doing before, such as dying my hair a different colour and paying a lot more attention to my appearance. I had read an article about "The modern man" and how he isn't afraid to experiment with beauty products/make-up etc. Reading that article definitely started something ticking in my brain and I went online to read up on beauty products for men. Eyes are considered to be the window to your soul and ever since I was little I have always been complimented on my eyes as being one of my best physical features, so when I came across a way to enhance my eyes, I was over the moon and jumped at the chance. I found this product on www.guyliner.co.uk, a website that is now defunct and I purchased it for £9.99. I don't think there is any difference between a women's eyeliner and Guyliner except for the name and there's one thing wearing women's eyeliner and a completely different thing wearing Guyliner, at least that was some sort of reassurance for me anyway.

      ==What is it?==

      Guyliner is an eyeliner pencil for the "modern man", it is applied the same way as a woman would apply eyeliner and it is also used for the same reason; to shape, define, transform, enhance and intensify the eyes. I think it was brought out to differentiate between women's eyeliner and something a male would feel comfortable using without the stigma attached to it. The pencil weighs 0.04oz, so it is extremely light.

      ==How to apply==

      Usually I follow the lower lid of the eye from left to right, drawing a fine line, but you can do the same with the top lid as well if you so wish. I then smudge the Guyliner using a cotton ear bud or my finger, being careful not to over smudge it, I mean I don't want to look like a panda. If I do make a mistake when applying (I have only been using this for a year so I am prone to them), I just use a baby wipe to clear it up. Taking it off is simple, I usually just wash my face with facial scrub as part of my night time routine. When the pencil starts to become a little blunt, as over time it will generally do, just use a pencil sharpener to get it back to its former glory.

      ==Price==

      I purchased this from the now defunct Guyliner website for £9.99 including postage, you can get this from Boots for £11.95 including shipping.

      ==Verdict==

      I love using this, although I don't use it everyday, I do like to wear it occasionally. Sometimes I do get some funny looks wearing it, as there is still this horrible stigma attached to blokes wearing make-up, but the way I see it, if you're comfortable with who you are and your own sexuality then what's the problem? I do find it really enhances my eyes, it really makes them stand out and it is a nice welcome change of my appearance. As I only use it occasionally I have a good feeling it will last me for quite a while. Would I buy this again? If I lost it then yes I would buy it again, I can't see me buying it when it runs out though, as by then I will probably be in my mid forties and I don't think it will look as nice on a guy of that age, but my attitude on that might change in the next few years, so you never know.
