Men Can Wear Make-up Too! How to Achieve a Clean Look


Share
"Only gay men wear make up!" If you believe this statement remains to be true in this age and time, you've been living under a rock!
Men Can Wear Make-up Too!
A good friend of mine commented this "meaty" statement over dinner last night. For a good 3 seconds, nobody replied; maybe be since they are preoccupied eating or simply because they completely agree. Well, I really don't! While it is true that a lot of gay men wear make-up as part of their daily routine, there are guys (straight) who are also fond of applying basic make-up. And when I say basic make-up, I meant the cleanest look that is really camouflaged.

How can you achieve this?

I'm not really a make-up artist or anything close to it, but it's my grave attraction to knowing how to achieve a clean look that made me learn make-up. You actually do need a lot of products; instead you only have to prepare the following:
  • Moisturizer - I recommend Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
  • Non-shimmer Bronzing Powder - Marks and Spencer has this
  • Contour Brush
  • Foundation - Choose a tone that mimics your skin. Not lighter or darker
Using a small amount of Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, apply it directly to your face in a small, circular motion. Do this on your face and neck. Once done, lightly damp a facial tissue on your face to remove any excess. Using your contour brush, create shadows under your jawline. Make sure you extend the shadow under the chin to ear area. Do this on both sides. Next step is to create a contour on your cheeks up to your ear area. Starting from your ear area, lightly brush the bronzing powder on both cheeks. This will create an illusion that you have a more chiseled facial feature. Do not overdo this unless you want to look bruised (pun intended)! Your finishing touch is applying the foundation. Using a powder brush, apply loose powder or powder foundation to achieve a slick look.

Here's a sample.

Men's Make-up
I'll soon create a video demo for this. Stay tuned!
While I am not the best example to prove that only gay men can wear make-up, sometimes is also because of grooming. More men nowadays are more aware of their looks and would like to enhance what they have. That alone doesn't make them gay!

sorry but i didn't understand the statement " Using your contour brush, create shadows under your jawline. Make sure you extend the shadow under the chin extended to ear area. Do this on both sides. Next step is to create a contour on your cheeks up to your ear area. Starting from your ear area, lightly brush the bronzing powder on both cheeks. This will create an illusion that you have a more chiseled facial feature." If and when I try to do this, I think the "Do overdo this unless you want to look bruised (pun intended)!" will be the result haha. So I'll be waiting for the youtube demo?! Sooner or later?!
