Men and Make-up: How Not to Glisten When Your Stock Plummets

Do men use cosmetics? Should they?

We know that men get laser treatments, face lifts, chemical peels, Botox® and fillers.

But applying a little bronzing powder is a different story. Or is it?

I am not advocating that men apply make-up (not that there is anything wrong with that). I wonder though, how many men reach into their wives’ or girlfriends’ make-up bag to find concealer for their acne? I don’t know, but I suspect quite a few.

A product that might be worth the cost (and preserve your masculinity) is an anti-shine gel. This one, made by Shiseido, was recently mentioned in the Wall Street Journal (not exactly Men’s Vogue).

Male faces naturally produce more sebum, some more than others. If you’re a professional and your face has a tendency to glisten when your hedge fund takes a dive in the afternoon, then having a product like this might be useful. And no less manly.

  1. My best friend is man’s makeup evangelist! He used to preach to me about this range of men’s cosmetics ranging from tinted moisturiser to a cover up pen! In his own words he used to say “It gives me the skin I was meant to be born with!”

    Kind of gay, but he swears by the stuff. Obviously moderation is the key because he looked like he had overdosed on Sunny D!

  2. What about for girls? I’ve never heard of a product like this, and powder’s just not cutting it.
