Here are a few basic men’s makeup tips that can be easily followed by all those men who need to start off with some basic makeup techniques.
The first thing to learn in men’s makeup tips is that makeup looks good only if you have a fresh, neat and clean skin. The better your skin is, the more amazing makeup will look on it no matter what type of quality makeup products have. Therefore, exfoliation is the start of makeup. Wash your face thoroughly with a good exfoliation face wash and make sure that the skin is clean before applying makeup. Many good and big companies like Nivea are now coming up with exfoliation face washes specifically for men.
Once you have exfoliated your skin well and it is cleaned properly before applying makeup, use a good toner on your skin. Apply a toner with the help of cotton bud or a cosmetic pad. It helps in keeping the cells of your skin smooth and takes away any dirt particles that might be left behind even after exfoliation. Toner is a very good and effective product in men’s makeup.
In order to avoid dry and cracks in your skin and most importantly, protecting skin from early aging signs and uneven skin for makeup, moisturize your skin well at least before sleeping or just before leaving the house. In summer season, the important thing when it comes to makeup tips is that you should avoid direct contact of your skin with the harmful rays of the sun. Therefore, choose such moisturizers in men’s makeup that has SPF 15 or other levels of SPF.
Once you are done with the exfoliation, toning and moisturizing of your skin with basic men’s makeup tools, now it’s time to apply some real makeup stuff and it starts off with a concealer. Concealer is ideal to hide any spots, wrinkles and uneven patches on your skin and it gives your skin a smooth feel too. Concealer is a great tool for basic men’s makeup and it is equally important for women too. Apply it with the help of a fine makeup brush on the areas where you want to apply it and then dab the place with the brush.
If you want to enhance certain features of your face or you want to give definition to certain areas, then the ideal makeup tool is to use a face powder. Use it around your nose, cheekbones and forehead to bring out enhancement in your features.
To complete the look, never ever forget to use a lip balm in your makeup. It is the most important of all the makeup tools and its use is even more important in men’s makeup tips. It will keep your lips moistened, smooth and will protect them from being dried or chapped.
Lastly, don’t forget to remove and wash out the makeup before going to bed at night as it can be bad for your skin. Clean your face well with a face wash to remove makeup and apply a moisturizer before going to bed. You will feel good in the morning to apply makeup on a fresh and clean skin once you wake up and by removing makeup before bed, you will actually give a lot of space to your skin cells and pores to capture oxygen and get freshened. So, look good and feel good and enjoy experimenting with men’s makeup.
