    Why the hell wouldn't they? Why wouldn't a guy be able to wear makeup when originally it was made for guys? Why should only women wear it? Worry about your own face instead and don't worry about what other people do as much.

    Can I just say as someone who came of age during the height of the New Romantics that were this true, which I regrettably doubt, this would be most excellent news.  Those make up wearing dudes were hot AF.  When did society become so joyless?

    Makeup on men is totally okay. And especially if they know what they're doing, sometimes you can't even tell! There's a reason every movie star and musician wears make up, guys ;)

    last i checked makeup doesn’t have a gender. does the packaging say “for women only”? no. did you know that every actor wears makeup on camera? maybe some people got portraits taken by a photographer who’s lighting or setup looked better when the subject wore a bit of makeup. it’s no big deal. you’re beautiful, they’re beautiful, makeup or none.

    It depends on what you mean by makeup. The way you are talking about it makes it sound like drag queens but being that sometimes your senior photos can follow you in employment searches and applying for college, I doubt any majority of them would do that. If you mean a slight amount of coverup and powder, that is typically encouraged for professional photos and doesn't need to be frowned upon and doesn't mean anything about them. Maybe they got all the likes on facebook for being popular and good looking?

    This whole thing sounds silly.

    To become more popular with women.  And if these ARE the popular guys, then it's working.  Work on that eyeliner ...

    Maybe it's part of a newer society. Both sexes can dye their hair. Clothing styles are used to be a feminine thing, with men dressed more conservatively. Actors wear makeup, and in preparing for television appearances, makeup is for men also.

    If they want to be overdone, it is their individual choice, generally wrong for either gender, but enhancing appearance I don't question in these days of equality of the sexes.
