Male Makeup Done Right

When it comes to male makeup subtle is key and less is best.  A small amount of makeup can go a long way when it comes to enhancing the male skin and bringing his best features forward. 

It is best to start with clean exfoliated skin, and then moisturise and prime accordingly. Next conceal under the eyes and over any blemishes. Set the entire face with a translucent powder to take away any shine.  Contour if needed/desired with a powder bronzer. It is extremely important to clean away makeup that may have fallen into the eyelashes and eyebrows. Brush eyebrows and set with a clear wax. Apply a small amount of lip balm. Presto ! 

Here is an example of some male makeup that I did for a recent shoot on model Luke at the stunning wedding venue Victoria Park Golf Course. He is dressed by Black Jacket Suiting and floral buttonhole by Madison in Bloom. Photography by the one and only Wildflower Weddings
