Q: Makeup…for men?
A: Makeup for men is a thing! A great thing at that, because who doesn’t want to look like the best version of themselves. Makeup does not have to mean wearing layers of product. It could just mean covering up that annoying pimple or concealing the fact that you’ve slept 4 hours. ZUSE, carries some amazing men’s focused makeup which I will describe in more detail right here!
Menaji Camo Concealer: This concealer is specifically designed to cater to the male skin. It has unique ingredients that allow it to control and withstand higher oil production. This concealer is ideal for spot coverage. Spot coverage, in simple terms, is concealing specific problem areas, rather than concealing all over the face. Problem areas could vary day to day. For example, when you are tired, you would use it to conceal your dark circles. Similarly, if you had a pimple you could use it to conceal that. It comes in three different shades to suit your skin tone. Shop the pick: Menaji Camo Concealer.
How to use: Apply a small amount to the desired area using your fingertip. I would not suggest using it directly from the tube because it can collect bacteria. As well, the warmth from your fingertips will warm up the product and make for an easier blending process. Blend with your fingertip until the product has melted into your skin. Also, it is always a good idea to make sure your skin is well moisturized before applying product.
Myego Fonteint Hydrating Enhancer: Otherwise known as a tinted moisturizer. Why use a tinted moisturizer? It has all the benefits of a normal moisturizer but will also make your skin look healthier and smoother by containing a small amount of colour-correcting pigment. By providing coverage, tinted moisturizer can reduce redness and the appearance of blemishes. This formula is lightweight, oil-free and therefore suitable for all skin types. Shop the pick: Myego Fonteint Hydrating Enhancer.
How to use: Apply it like you would a normal moisturizer. If you feel that your skin is dry you could use your normal moisturizer underneath. This has low coverage, so if you have certain areas that need more covering up, use a concealer on top.
Myego Matifiant Shine Rescue: This product is a powder that will help control shine. This is for normal, combination and oily skin types that want to remove excess oil from the face. It has no colour, an amazing natural, undetectable finish and will layer well on top of any other products you might be wearing. Shop the link: Myego Matifiant Shine Rescue.
How to use: Use either after tinted moisturizer or concealer to set any areas of the face that usually get oily (forehead, nose, chin) or can be used to touch up throughout the day. Comes with a brush in the compact for convenience.
Q: How should makeup be integrated into my current skincare routine?
A: Makeup is usually put on in the morning but it could be put on at night as well, in which case disregard SPF (especially if you will be photographed).
- Usual morning routine (Building a Skincare Routine).
- Tinted moisturizer, or if dry moisturizer and then tinted moisturizer.
- Conceal where needed.
- Powder if needed.
