Rising numbers of men using make-up

One in ten British men admit to borrowing their partner's make-up

Hide your make-up bags, ladies, before your man gets his fingers on your foundation. New research has revealed that a shocking one in ten men are now borrowing their partner’s cosmetics to make them look ‘beautiful’.

Out of all the items, tweezers proved to be the most popular, followed closely by moisturiser. In addition to this, almost a third admit to using at least three of their wives or girlfriends beauty products or gadgets.

Just outside the top ten were hair straighteners, fake tan, nail varnish and eyeliner or mascara. Over a third of the 2,000 men questioned said they used these items in secret, although 31 per cent of women claim to have caught them in the act.

Jacky Brown, from the home insurance company that carried out the study, said: ‘Whilst it’s common knowledge that women enjoy pampering themselves at home and making the effort to look good using an array of beauty gadgets, lotions and potions little did we know that men also secretly want to jump on the beauty bandwagon.’

Does your man pamper himself in private? Is he more obsessed with his appearance that you are, and do you think this is wrong? Whatever your thoughts, Marie Claire wants to hear from you by posting a comment below.
