Yes. Yes. Yes! Now, that I’ve got your attention, Ryan Gosling and Idris Elba are two of the sexiest men on the big screen. While our body temperatures rise each time these guys hit the screen, oddly I am torn between watching the beautiful and talented men and watching for makeup high-points. I’m often asked “How do you do masculine makeup? ”
So how do you get a guy camera ready without making him look “made-up? ” It has been my personal experience that men having extreme skin conditions. If the skin is dry it’s really dry, if it’s oily then it is really oily. When working with men it’s best to have a variety of skin care options in your kit to get the job done.
Access the skin’s condition as well as shaving and facial hair management options, cleanse tone, towel dry then hydrate.
Use the green arrows as a makeup application guide. Apply a concealer to the areas of the face in addition to blemished areas. Apply concealers with a short haired, synthetic brush . In the case of men, concealers must be as close to the subject’s natural skin-tone as the overall makeup application will be minimum coverage.
Depending on the skin-type and skin-tone, use a sheer to medium coverage foundation to balance the subject’s skin-tone. *Sheer foundation throughout the skin by using a moistened sponge, blend gently through the forehead, temples, neck and ears. Lightly powder to set your foundation.
Moisturize lips with a lip treatment and blot away to avoid glossy residue.
