Bare Essentials for Every Man’s Makeup Kit

As a newbie to men’s makeup one of the first things that you have to do is decide which care products you need. You should come up with a skin care regimen that works for your skin type and looks and stick to it. As you decide what you need to include in your collection of products make sure that you have the following in your list:


Ever looked at your girlfriend’s or wife’s skin and wondered how it is that their face looks flawless at all times? It is not that they don’t have any blemishes – we all do. Rather, they wear concealer. Concealer is just that – it conceals what you don’t want the rest of the world to see and it is an essential part of your makeup kit. Thankfully, some of the top cosmetics companies in the world have created excellent concealers for men of all skin types so you shouldn’t have a problem finding something that will suit you.

Cooling eye serum

Partying, drinking and staying up too late all leave their mark – the next morning you have dark circles under your eyes that are hard to conceal. Not only do they make you look haggard, they add years to your actual age. You can get rid of them quite easily with cooling eye serum. This product reduces puffiness beneath your eyes, making them look brighter and younger. These serums are usually packaged like lip balm and should be rolled gently under the eye area, starting close to the nose and moving towards the temples. Using your finger gently rub the serum in and blend it in properly. You can apply two or three times a day as needed.

Anti-wrinkle and firming moisturiser

Wrinkles and find lines are not just a woman’s problem – as you grow older you will start to develop them too and if you don’t take steps your beautiful skin will soon be so wrinkled that you will need more than just makeup to look good. The best way to get ahead of fine lines and wrinkles is to invest in good anti-wrinkle serums. They provide your skin with the right combination of nutrients to keep it looking supple. Most makeup experts will tell you that whether or not you use makeup anti-aging cream is a must.


When you use makeup on dry skin the effect is horrible; it cakes and flakes and can cause lots of embarrassment. It is very important to keep your skin moisturised at all times and the only way to do that is to ensure that you have a good moisturising brand as part of your daily man-beauty routine. There is no shortage of good moisturisers in the market but you should make sure to choose one that is formulated for your skin type. If you aren’t certain what that is talk to an expert – they can advise you on the best kinds of products to use.

Daily bronzer

Tired of looking pale even in summer? The answer can be found in daily bronzer. This is a light crème that you apply to your face to give it a bit of colour – how much depends on how deep you want your tan to look. At the end of the day when you step into the shower the tan will wash right off.

Tinted moisturiser

Tinted moisturiser is a good way to go if you don’t want to use daily bronzer – its effect is not as deep but you get excellent colour on your face and it will conceal blemishes. Before you invest in tinted moisturiser you should make sure that it is suitable for your skin tone – you don’t want your face and neck looking strikingly different from the rest of your body.

These 6 products are the most important for your men’s makeup kit. Make sure that you buy yours from a reputable vendor who sells high quality brands.
