From Little Richard in the '50s to Bruno Mars at the 2017 Grammys, musicians have led the male makeup charge for decades. 


If ever there was a realm where women were firmly in the driver’s seat, it’s the world of makeup (purchased and worn mostly by women, historically). 
But that has changed, radically, this past year starting in January 2016, when Milk Makeup, available online and at Sephora and Urban Outfitters nationwide, launched a makeup-for-all product line with gender-fluid models in the ads.

 “When Adam Lambert was on American Idol, I was so young, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, he’s wearing makeup and he’s getting so far and it’s not a detriment to his dream,’ ” Zamora tells Billboard. “With time, that allowed a lot of people to feel comfortable wearing makeup -- myself included.” Mazdack Rassi, one of the co-founders of Milk Makeup, which sells a stick matte bronzer for $24 and a gel brow pencil for $18, credits music too. “With artists like Patti Smith and David Bowie, androgyny has been a part of the culture forever,” he says.

Actually, Adam's present more natural look without excessive makeup is still his best. On stage, I guess he needs to accentuate the eyes but on his latest Queen performances, he looks handsome and natural, with little makeup.
