With Motley Crue, KISS in town tonight at Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion, and the recent gig by Cinderella, is it any wonder that the makeup counters nearest the venues seem depleted?

To the best of my research ability, it doesn't seem any artist was ever sponsored by a Revlon, Max Factor or any other make-up producer, yet plenty of male-fronted bands have kept these companies in business by wearing makeup as part of the stage act (and for some, it's the daily look).
