I spent some time backstage at a menswear show this season learning the fascinating techniques for making up guys for the runway. In the course of learning about how making men look like they’re not wearing makeup actually takes kind of a lot of makeup, the more fascinating conversation involved the backstage dynamics. “Male models hit on makeup artists a lot,” one female makeup artist said. “They don’t all want female models. Some of them want real girls!”
Or maybe they just don’t want someone prettier than them. Kidding! Totally kidding.
