Welcome to the world of make for men

In case, as a man, you ever need to wear make-up then use the tips below to guide you. Perhaps, you’re an artist and you need to look a certain way because your image matters.

Make-up sits better on a face that doesn’t have a lot of problem areas specifically acne. So invest in a good skincare routine. In men’s skincare products, it includes cleanser, toner and moisturizer depending on what works for your face.

Consider exfoliating your skin so that you can remove dead face cells and unleash a youthful and fresh visage. A trip to the spa can also help rejuvenate your skin.

When you look in the mirror and stare at your face, some places look darker or lighter. You can use make-up to colour correct your skin.

Certainly, after bad acne, people are usually left with dark spots and perhaps you just want to conceal it as your face keeps healing.

Consider investing in items like BB cream or Foundation For Men. Make sure that it matches your skin tone by asking for a little help at the beauty store. Match it to your inner wrist.

What is Foundation?

Lately, things have been pretty stressful and the emotional strain is showing on your face. It’s the same way a face can tell you that life has been harsh and unforgiving.

Of course, it feels like you’ve been living in the deep end and things have been becoming hotter and hotter by the day. Sometimes, you wake up on top of the world and other times you just can’t catch a break. However, life never stops and you still want to put your best foot forward.


Foundation is make-up that gives you a flawless, even look regardless of what’s happening beneath. Ladies have different seasons and sometimes it feels like little volcanoes are erupting all over your face yet you haven’t touched dairy and it definitely isn’t that time of the month. So foundation lets you get your inner confidence back if your face is acting up including acne and hyperpigmentation. 


Hence, it’s created to match your skin tone so that it can cover up flaws and you can even use it to alter your skin tone. It can also function as a moisturiser, sunscreen or a base layer for other make-up.


There are different types of foundation that include liquid foundation, cream foundation, cake or stick foundation, powder foundation, waterproof foundation & mineral foundation, spray foundation, cream-to-powder foundation, tinted moisturizer and mousse foundation.


Of course, you want your foundation to last as long as possible.

So we have a few tips below that will help keep your foundation in place, all day long.

Always, start with a clean face. If your face is prone to acne break-outs then start a skin care routine that includes exfoliating your face weekly. It’ll make it easier for your face to hold the foundation nicely.

Moisturize your face before applying foundation so that application is even.  

Apply a primer to your face so that your foundation lasts all day.
