Over the centuries, men have often dabbled with cosmetics; both in ancient Egypt and during the Roman Empire, men wore lip colorant as a means of denoting social status.

In the past, men also applied cosmetics for aesthetic reasons; during the Renaissance, women and men of Edward IVs court wore lip rouge, and even as recently as the eighties, nineties and noughties (think punk rock, grunge and emo respectively) men have been partial to a bit of make up.And why not? Men and make up are quite the combination. Indeed, Johnny Depp looked incredible in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow; the swashbuckling, slightly camp and smokey-eyed pirate whose long, dreadful (yep, pun) hair only served to make him, dare I say it, more attractive.

Of course, Johnny Depp is already beautiful, but dont you get the feeling that hes ever so slightly better looking with a bit of slap? Seriously, take a look at these two photos:

Men can wear make-ups to make women, as in operas earlier; but women can't make up as men, especially in hot climates
