When you’re stocking up on supplies before the fall, consider what you will need. It’s always a good rule of thumb to cleanse, moisturize, and use SPF.
Back-to-School Makeup for Men
Yes, men wear makeup. From just a light concealer for dark circles to ‘full face,’ makeup for men is becoming more mainstream. And of course, anyone with skin needs skin care. Skin is skin. No matter if you are male, female, or nonbinary, this is how to take care of yourself.
Even your skin tone or cover a blemish with a tinted moisturizer with SPF. Select a color close to your natural complexion and prep for application by cleansing and moisturizing first.
This adds a subtle coverage while it hydrates, smooths, and protects against UVA/B radiation. Then add a light blush to bring out youthfulness and a lip balm to prevent chapping.
Here’s Nicole’s tip on how to expertly apply foundations or tinted moisturizers:
“Blending [foundation/concealer/tinted moisterizer] will give you nice coverage, it helps to ensure your makeup looks seamless and polished.
Blend…until it melts into your skin.”
Whatever your comfort level with skincare and makeup, feel empowered to experiment with what is available on the market.
