The mainpage article on makeup http://jezebel.com/this-incredibl… makes me think about men and makeup. Is it still considered taboo?

I experimented with makeup in my youth - partly because of Bowie and partly because of a much less savory influence - Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange. (ETA my admiration here extended only to his grooming choices) My mom freaked, and I kept it private after that. Is this still weird?
