"What the hell is no-makeup makeup?" you probably ask.

It simply refers to the application of makeup that looks as if, well, you're not wearing makeup. So why should you try it?

Paul, a straight guy, has been doing the no-makeup makeup look since 2010. He said it helps him hide under eye circles, pores, and pimples.

"My ex-girlfriend is a big fan of makeup. Sometimes, she applies makeup on my face just for fun. I've noticed that it's not obvious and it helps enhance my features. So I decided to try it myself. Over time, natuto akong maglagay ng concealer na mag-isa," Paul said.

"Kapag may event or popormahan lang ako naglalagay para matago yung eyebags, pores, at pimples," he added.

The 24-year-old seaman said: "In this kind of world we live in today, I don't think doing the no-makeup makeup would be a big deal."

"I highly recommend na i-try siya ng ibang lalaki. Hindi siya nakakabawas ng pagkalalaki. In fact, nakakadagdag pa siya dahil naha-highlight best features mo."

"Makeup is made for women thus men aren't supposed to be wearing any of it. Men are born to be strong-looking and putting makeup makes them less of a man. For men in the modeling industry, it's quite acceptable for that is part of fashion." —Angel, 30

"I can't imagine my boyfriend sharing makeup with me. I think confidence is enough to give them natural glow and appeal." —Carnie, 25

"I don't think men should worry that much about how their skin or face look. Tama na yung naghihilamos araw-araw. Pwede rin mag-moisturize and toner.
