Thanks, Millennials

The head of L’Oreal is claiming makeup for men is a real thing, and it will be available worldwide in less than five years.

We’re through the looking glass here, people.

Male make-up counters could become a reality within five years, the UK boss of L’Oreal has said, as it is no longer a taboo for the “selfie generation”. Vismay Sharma, the cosmetics giant’s UK managing director, said that demand for make-up among men was growing fast.

Speaking about the industry as a whole, he said male-targeted counters in department stores and drug stores could be a reality in “five to seven years”.

According to Mr Sharma taboos are changing and make-up is becoming more accepted for men among what he describes as the “selfie generation”.

This is welcome news, because I truly need something to highlight my cheekbones. Personally, the lard isn’t cutting it.

  1. This shouldn’t be that surprising since men have been getting their eyebrows and other areas waxed just like women. Make-up seems the next logical step. Besides, in the bird kingdom, the men are the “pretty” ones with their bright plumage.
