Up until now, guys, it’s been a major chore to make your skin look flawless so it really pops. While you won’t necessarily mind a skincare routine – and yes, men want nice looking skin too no matter what you may think – it’s really time-consuming to say the least and you have other things you need to get to.
At this point in time, makeup for men, professional grooming and men’s makeup are becoming par for the course, because again, guys should look and feel their best while on a first date, a job interview, or any other event or situation. And if wearing makeup helps them feel this way, then by God that’s what real men should do.
You may be wondering how to get started with a skincare routine. If so, stick around and keep reading to learn tips and a simple yet effective process to make your skin look flawless.
Tip #1: Under the Eyes Preparation
Believe it or not guys, they say the area of utmost importance to address is underneath your eyes. And this is for everyone, not just men. So, before you even consider applying makeup underneath your peepers, you have to prep and thoroughly clean the area first for the best most stunning results.
So, you want to begin by actually cleaning you entire face. But do it using facial cleanser and also use cleansing clothes designed for the eyes. These clothes are nice and delicate, which makes them perfect for cleaning this soft area of the skin.
After you’ve cleaned your facial skin, you can then apply eye gels underneath your eyes. These gels will revitalize, relieve, and cool the area and help de-puff and tone your skin.
Lastly, to get rid of the ugly dark circles under your eyes, feel free to use a quick absorbing eye cream. A relief eye cream of your choosing will get the job done.
Tip #2: Apply Eyeliner
Another fantastic tip is to apply eyeliner, or better known as guyliner because it’s designed for men. Why? Because fellas, you really want your eyes to pop and stand out. And the best way to make it happen is by applying guyliner, so give it a try and enjoy the results.
The best way to apply it is to draw a dotted line using a light touch across the lower and upper lash lines. This way anyone looking at you won’t feel like you’ve drawn on your eyeliner like a woman typically would.
Tip #3: Neck & Face Moisturizing
Obviously your goal is to have your skin look healthy and reinvigorated. The best next step is to begin moisturizing your face and neck. This is a great tip to keep your skin looking healthy and attractive.
To begin, you should choose a moisturizing lotion that has a cooling effect. By choosing this option, you’ll feel refreshed and minty cool after using it, which is definitely a nice touch and really relaxing and satisfying.
It’s really easy to use moisturizing lotion as well if you aren’t familiar guys. Take a small amount of your cooling lotion and pat it on your skin. Put it all over your face and neck, but pat it in. Don’t rub it in. You’ll have better results this way.
Tip #4: Light Coverage is the Best Coverage
For most men, you want to wear makeup to make your skin look awesome, but you don’t actually want anyone knowing you’re wearing it. You don’t want it to be too visibly noticeable, at least for most guys. But everyone is different so no judgments no matter how you wear your makeup.
Anyway, if you prefer your makeup wearing to remain unknown, you have to learn to apply it using a light touch. Otherwise it will look gloopy and noticeable and that basically defeats the purpose of what you’re trying to do, right? So go light and gentle when applying makeup fellas.
Tip #5: Lip Balm to the Rescue
Do you want your lips to shine and look moisturized? If so, using lip balm should become a regular part of your daily regime. So guys tend to forget about their lips, but not you. Not anymore. Right?
No matter how you feel on the topic, just know that it’s becoming more popular and more accepted for men to wear makeup. And why not? We’re all trying hard to live in a more inclusive society, right? So, if you want to look your absolute best day after day, please use these makeup tips and your skin will look flawless fellas. You’ll see!
