Should Men wear makeup? Yes, with correct application, men will look more awake and fresh. The line is the type of look: men need natural makeup look not the fake makeup. So I did a wife does husband makeup tutorial with all my knowledge. I mean, he looks Photoshopped ,lol, don't you think so? The video is up on youtube. you can also check the whole process.
My husband is almost 40, even though he likes to say he doesnt age, but california's dry wind is tough on him. The fact is that I just cant take his razor burns anymore. I also want to show him what I am talking about when I say the eye shadow color just wont show so much as when it is used on paler skin.
So I start with skincare, foundation, concealer, eyebrow shaping, eyeshadow application, eyeliner and I even fixed his hairs. since his skin is too dry, I put some fancy serum on him, and then I used sk2 base control to get rid of the dullness. I have to say sk2 is my new favorite foundation base now. It is lightweighted, and give you this radiant look. And It smells so good.
I have never seen someone's eyes can be so deep and droopy. Like there is no room to put eyeshadow at all. And the corner of the inner eyes are bruised. So I concealed everything twice.
The concealer pallete i used is ISPA, if you know japanese brands well, you will know this most popular creative pallete. It has 3 colors, and also has a room for you to mix them yourself to suit your own skintone. What i love about it is the hydration effect. And the coverage is really good. It is perfect for no makeup makeup. I use it on undereye area, dark corner of the mouth, laugh lines, acnes, redness of the nose.
After applying, you can barely tell its there.
For foundation, I used shiseido foundation stick. Did I tell you it is asian's makeup artist favorite? One layer covers everything, it feels like your second skin. and it has color corrector built in. If you want to have a good coverage with dewy finish, buy it before it is gone again. This stick has over 100 years of history. and it is WONDERFUL!
Eyebrows are so important even for men. Especially for down-turned eyes. After trimming the eyebrows, I used the brush to brush the eyebrows up to give it a lift effect, I plucked some hairs on the bottom and used gel to keep the shape.
For eye shadows, I only used shimmery champagne color on the whole lid. since deep set eyes already have a shadow, you really need to use light color to look more awake.
