Although most of our men these days leave makeup to the girls, there are times when it is helpful to even out that manly glow.  As a professional makeup artist, I get to freshen up male models before they get their pictures taken!

On photo shoots for men, I like to insist that I am not dolling the men up, I am toning them down.  This means a bit of bronzer on the bones and a touch of color to the cheeks and lips so everything looks moisturized and HEALTHY!  I am giving them an even glow so their audience sees the model, not the blemishes or a pale I-work-indoors skin tone.

Makeup for men takes ten minutes or less, depending on skin discolorations and photo shoot conditions such as sun and heat.  Check out the results!

Men and Eyebrow Grooming

Men’s Eyebrows Should Be Well-Groomed

Dark or medium-haired men usually need a good brow grooming at least every month or two. Try a natural shape with no added arch to keep it masculine. Tweeze or wax around the brow line at the top and, if needed, under the eyebrow. Especially clean the spot in the center of the face between the two brows, known as the ‘uni-brow’ area.

After shaping, trim the brows to make them less bushy. Brush them upwards with a small bristle brush and gently trim all hairs that exceed the eyebrow line. Do the same for the underside of the brow.

Good eyebrows frame the eye and add balance . Be sure yours are doing their job!
