Make For Men: A Beginner's Guide
Before you head on to apply a concealer or a foundation what you need is a primer as a first step. A primer preps up your skin for the make up that follows. Also, having a primer underneath helps make the makeup last longer than usual.

A concealer is going to be that most used product in your makeup kit; just dab it under your eyes or over blemishes and spots to watch them all vanish in a jiffy. If you have red cheeks, then a concealer can hide those red spots to blur them out. To use a concealer you don't really need a brush to blend it in, dabbing is the trick, just apply some and keep dabbing it for it to get absorbed quickly and do its job.

3. Blotting sheet
No one likes a shiny red nose, hence keeping a blotting sheet with you will help keep the makeup longer. A blotting sheet helps keep the oil at bay, without leaving a cakey look. A little touch up with a blotting sheet on the go during your shoots will also keep those large pores looking small.

4. Brow marker
Men brows are thicker and hairier than women hence they need more maintenance. Apart from a brow trimming they also need to be shaped, defined and darkened. Using a brow pencil or a brow gel will keep your brow hair in place and also make your brow hair look defined and not unruly.

Dry cracked lips is not what you want. Well moisturized and clean lips instantly make you look brighter and more vibrant. We advice you don't pick anything that is glossy, a matte lip balm dabbed on your lips will keep then feeling moisturized and soft. This also makes talking for longer hours easy.
