The Infamous M (akeup Loving) EN of Los Angeles

Los Angeles contains, by far, the highest concentration of foundation claud males than any other red blooded American town.

Actually, I don’t know for sure. I just guessed that. I didn’t survey men of different American cities to ask them whether they wore make-up or not. I thought that would just be too time-consuming. So let’s just assume I’m right and here’s why: Makeup in vital for anyone to appear camera ready, and LA is the one place where occupants of every and any gender aspire to be camera ready 24/7. Tasteful face paint is far from exclusive to women and those fabulous queens on Sunset/WeHo.
