10 Men Who Use Guyliner

Over the past few years, more and more men have been using guyliner. Which would be an interesting blurring of the gender lines except that I suspect it’s yet another phase – similar to the long teased 80s hair some men in rock bands had – rather than a broadening of so-called acceptable ways that men can play with their appearance.  But let’s take a walk through some great examples from guyliner history (click on the images to see their guyliner in all its glory). Who’s your favorite?

Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy

Ozzy Osbourne

Adam Lambert (American Idol)

Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp)

Kiss: Does it count as guyliner if it's in huge shapes?

Richard Alpert (LOST)

Michael Jackson

David Bowie

Dave Navarro

Keith Richards

    The guy that plays Richard in Lost doesn't wear eyeliner! His eyeline is naturally dark and, in fact, when they do his makeup they try to tone it down.

    Also, given that about half the people on the list have been guyliners for decades, I'd say it's hardly a phase.

    Who you probably should have included over Pete Wentz or half these other people (KISS? Really? Bit of a stretch there.)

    Oh how I love Ozzy, Keith, David, and Michael!
