 Made Up Men: 1 in 10 Brit Men 'Borrow' Partner's Cosmetics!
Women and cosmetics go together like a hose on fire. But what about men? Do they sneak in some greasepaint occasionally?

t has been revealed that nearly 10 per cent of British men have admitted to slapping on make-up once in a while.

A study, by Sheilas' Wheels home insurance, found that one in ten men in the UK had turned to hair removal cream or wax, while seven per cent owned up to using their partner's hair straighteners.

The same number said they had used fake tan, reports The Daily Express.

Six per cent of blokes confessed to using nail varnish, while five per cent used eyeliner or mascara.

Jacky Brown at Sheilas' Wheels home insurance said: "It's common knowledge that women enjoy pampering themselves at home and making the effort to look good using an array of beauty gadgets, lotions and potions.

"But little did we know that men also secretly want to jump on the beauty bandwagon. However, men delving through their other halves' make-up bags should be careful as it's all too easy to spill or stain something, causing damage around the home.

"So watch out ladies, and keep those prized beauty must-haves under lock and key."

Top 10 beauty products and appliances that men borrow are: 1, tweezers (39 per cent). 2, moisturiser (37 per cent). 3, hair dryer (36 per cent). 4, Nail file / buffer (29 per cent). 5, hair styling products (22 per cent). 6, Lip salve / lip gloss (22 per cent). 7, face mask / facial scrub (15 per cent). 7 shaver (15 per cent). 9, concealer / foundation (10 per cent). 10, hair removal cream / wax (8 per cent).
