Whenever ‘Men’ and ‘Make Up’ are mentioned in the same sentence, our minds instantly have visions of Joey from Friends in that infamous episode where he’s promoting ‘Ichiban – lipstick for men’. But make up for men doesn’t have to be ridiculous, or even noticeable. We all need a helping hand sometimes to look a little fresher for the day ahead and there’s nothing wrong with a dab of a little something-something here and there to give your complexion a much needed boost.
You won’t find a single bloke on the TV which doesn’t have a sneaky check in with the make-up artist before the cameras and lights hit them. Even Jon Snow wouldn’t turn his nose up at a dab of concealer after a shift with the lads of the Night’s Watch. Concealer for men may not be something you’d brag about using down the pub, but when you’ve had one too many late nights, you might get a few questions about how you manage to look so fresh all the time. Not only does concealer help to cover up dark under eye areas, but many concealers also contain a powerhouse of ingredients to help hydrate the skin and keep crow’s feet and wrinkles at bay for longer.
Applying concealer can seem a bit like a daunting task if you’ve never dipped your toes in to the world of cosmetics before, so the key is to start small and build up. Applying concealer as part of your everyday grooming routine will help to make the process a little more natural too.
