Men makeup products and a beginner's guide

Becoming a heartthrob on the internet comes with some confidence, content and lots of makeup. Yes, that's right, getting the perfect shot needs confidence and that comes naturally if you are looking dashing. Men wearing makeup is nothing new to today's world, as little boys you have definitely stolen a little concealer to hide those zits on your date night. And while men from showbiz have been wearing makeup since decades for TV and films, it's the men on social channels or the teenagers just beginning to explore the glamour side of the world, that need some hand-holding with this skill. Although a concealer is the most basic and most used product, thanks to its multi-utility (it helps hide blemishes, dark circles and zits), there are other makeup essentials that you need to get that perfect look on for your next video blog or that first date! 

Make For Men: A Beginner's Guide 

1. Primer

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.

2. Concealer

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.

5. Lip Balm

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.

Top Makeup Tips For Men

  1. Skin colour: Choose your makeup products keeping your skin colour in mind. The concealer should be able to blend in completely with your skin colour. There are various shades available when picking a concealer choose wisely.
  2. Blend blend: When using a concealer take a small amount and remember to keep blending it till it disappears while doing its job well.
  3. Begin with less: Always begin with using a little of the product, even a little amount could become more and give you a highly dramatic look.
  4. Trial makeup: Always give your make products a trial before going ahead with the final shot.
