Many British men are secretly wearing make-up to hide their imperfections, a survey has revealed.

According to the findings, 1 in 10 men have turned to cosmetics to enhance their appearance, with men from Newcastle most likely to wear make-up, followed closely by men who come from Essex. For a visual cue think Geordie Shore and TOWIE.
