Ray D'Arcy and Daithi O'Se are doing their bit for charity and posted these hilarious make-up selfies in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.

Thousands of Irish women have shared images of themselves without make-up on social networking sites to raise hundreds of thousands of euro for the cancer charity.

Now the boys have jumped on the trend and are donning a full face of make-up to raise funds.

Ray D'Arcy pouted with ruby red lips and pink eye shadow, along with curly hair plopped on his head.

Radio DJ Mairead Farrell agreed to do D’Arcy’s clown-like make-up to post on his social media and he is urging listeners to text Shave to 50300.

While RTE's Daithi O'Se sports a tiny pigtail in his selfi, and rouged cheeks and lips.

The Irish Cancer Society (ICS) has reported a huge surge in donations in the days since the trend kicked off thanks to the original #nomakeupselfie trend, which has gone viral on both Twitter and Facebook.

The men were quick to get involved by posting photographs of themselves with drag queen make-up.

The social media trend has raised some €650,000 so far.
