The last time Elvis likely wore eyeliner was November 11, 1957, in Hawaii for his final live gig of the decade. It is doubtful, extremely doubtful, he would have applied same while in his army uniform.

Imagine if he walked onto the parade ground with makeup on !

Surely it's a case of the photo being touched up, rather than Elvis ?

I recall seeing a '71 or '72 photo where mascara seems to be running toward Our Boy's cheeks. It was in an old Sean Shaver book, more than likely "Photographing the King."

That's hair dye, not mascara.

Well, I was half kidding. Only half, mind you. His eyes still look unnaturally accented to me. Maybe they did do some touching up after the picture was taken, yes.

I know you did, which I why I finished on "yes" -- a word of acknowledgement.

Everything doesn't have to be 'fun', does it ?

We all have a serious side struggling to emerge from our psyche...............

I've read a few books recently that say he did wear make-up.. mostly mascara. Elvis and the Memphis Mafia has a few paragraphs about his make-up, the case he carried it in and how Elvis would say he had to avoid laughing too hard so that his mascara wouldn't run. (Just throwing this out there, I'm not saying he did or didn't).

Great pic Elvisgirl, thanks!

I would hope not ;) (didn't mean to imply he did) I was just merely talking about what I read (in general).

Didn't he wear eyeliner for all those publicity stills in the '60s too? Check out the cover for the "Viva Las Vegas" FTD for example.

And, of course, Elvis wore mascara just about every day. Either that or he dyed the stuff. This here cat is definitely wearing some serious makeup:

FWIW, Alanna Nash's book supports this as well (pps. 77-78). Billy Smith says "And yeah, he would use mascara on his lashes, especially after he dyed his hair. Then he dyed his eyebrows and eyelashes so he wouldn't need mascara anymore."
