Similar to, but not to be mistaken for "eye liner", it is the rimming of the male eye with usually a charcoal black color, and done voluntarily. Usually done by rock stars, emo kids, and more recently hipsters, it is a word used to masculinize a usually feminine product, thus making it more acceptable, at least for themselves. This is the main purpose for calling it by something other than simply eye liner, a term used by either women, men who cross dress as women, or men who never actually wear it themselves.

It can also be used ironically by a second party, making fun of those belonging to the aforementioned groups, aka emos, wannabe rockstars, hipsters, etc.
Girl: Hey squirt, will you let me borrow some of your eye liner?
Boy: Its not eye liner! Its Guyliner! ...MOOOOOM!! Sissy's stealing my things again!!

Jock: I bet you don't attract as much poon as me with your stupid Guyliner! Ah ha ha!
Emo: *cries softly as he Tweets about his problems*

Eyeliner for guys, no longer only for homosexuals, which is becoming surprisingly popular in today's society.
Anna: Kristina wears too much black eyeliner.
But Joey, being all emo and stuff, wears guyliner.
Like Pete Wentz.

Jen: Is Joey gay?!

Anna: NO. He's just that emo. Duh.

Eyeliner applied on a man. Once formerly the territory of only homosexuals,punk rockers and showmen, well-applied guyliner is slowly but surely becoming more socially acceptable for heterosexual men who ascribe to metrosexualism, glamour, and general fabulousness.

Eyeliner for guys. 'Nuff said.

Used by many people, including, but not limited to Brandon Flowers of The Killers and (most likely) Billie Jo Armstrong of Green Day (I think he uses mascara as well).
