Guy fards the fard soooo well: TAE Word for the Day


Here is a word that was brand-new to me, but it seemed just perfect for our smouldering henchman.

Fard: (verb) to apply cosmetics; (noun) facial cosmetics.  Fard comes from the old Low Franconian word farwidon which means “to dye or color.”

In the Old French it became farder meaning “to apply makeup.”

Sir Guy: have any other males wearing as much makeup as he, ever been so damned masculine and sexy? Methinks not. Not just the Guyliner; Ye Olde Medieval Mascara, Brow Pencil and Guyshadow all enhanced his beautiful peepers (there is also a rumor he dyed his hair and designer stubble to increase his bad boy appeal, but I can neither confirm or deny that . . .).

Sir Guy’s fard, which he fards so well makes him even more smouldering and irresistible for me.

Sir Guy, returning in splendour from Prince John's Red Door Salon and Spa, sported lustrous locks and his usual flattering fard. Yummmm!

Sir Guy, don't you know you should never sleep in your fard?

  1. Somehow, I don’t think “fard” is the root of the Irish expression “fardles”. Can anyone enlighten me?

    • Actually, I have wondered if they used either some type of stage makeup powder to blacken the stubble or a temporary dye you brush on–sort of like those touch-up wands you see to use on regrowth.

      • LOL, I thought of Fart, too! But he is the only guy I’ve every seen who’s wearing as much make-up as I usually do and who actually looks masculine!! (And hot, sexy, breathtaking, studly, etc.)

        • In my Sloth Fiction, I actually give Guy a set of mascaras from Sephora so he’ll stop borrowing mine LOL It’s almost as if the makeup complements and enhances his very masculine beauty. Most men would look either effeminate or downright foolish made up in such a fashion–but not him. There were times when he had just about as much makeup on as Lucy–maybe more sometimes! LOL
