Since society is so used to women wearing make-up, so they are not used to seeing men wear make-up. In my opinion, I don't care if men wear or don't wear make-up. If they want to look nice then go for it. They shouldn't care what others have to say. If it makes them happy then they should go ahead and do it.

If yes, I'm not telling!!! haha no, I don't need the year Darkest traits: Oversensitive, impatient, manipulative Best traits: Drive, dedication, honesty Overall: ○ You are full of energy and enthusiasm  ○ Once you settle on a goal, your drive, integrity, and originality attract good fortune and assure success. However, the very qualities that draw success to you can also hold you back. If you go through life thinking that everything will go according to plan, you will feel perpetually frustrated when things do not turn out as planned ○ You value dedication, discipline, and anything to do with education, psychology, and study ○ There is always a little voice inside you urging you to work harder, faster, and longer ○ Your greatest challenge is to stop beating yourself up about making mistakes
