There’s a massive social stigma that surrounds men wearing makeup, still to this day. Most guys get in touch with us, asking for various bits of advice on male cosmetics, ranging from how to make their makeup look natural, how to choose the right product, and something as simple as just choosing the right colour. Alongside this, we do get a lot of gents asking if we think wearing makeup as a guy is gay. Now of course, I’m sure you can guess what we say to that!Read More

There are various ways in which people wish to self-improve, but in today's society, a lot of people feel that looking good is the main part of improving yourself in day to day life, and it seems they're right!
To improve yourself mentally, it helps to feel good physically and men’s make-up may be a simple way to solving this in everyday life. Is men’s make up purely about a confidence boost? No, is my answer to that question. Make up does not instantly boost confidence. In most cases however, if you are happy with your physical appearance, others will quickly notice a change, in not only your presentation, but your presence too. If you feel obliged to wear makeup, then you shouldn't do it. Make up is an art, it should be enjoyed and not forced.

I remember the first day I met my boyfriend, like it was yesterday (and no, it wasn't yesterday). It was just a standard first date environment, until we got onto talking about our interests and realised how much we actually had in common. One interest we shared, to my surprise, was make up. I had never really thought about men having an interest in makeup, I had no reason to.
Men wearing makeup is swiftly becoming more accepted in society, however it isn't quite mainstream just yet, so I hear. The confusion and unacceptance of men’s make up all stems from one thing in my eyes; gender roles. The fact that my boyfriend wears make up doesn't make him a drag queen or a carnival clown, just like if a woman feels more confident without make up, does that make her a bloke? Nope, didn't think so! Men can feel self conscious too, nobody NEEDS make up, but if it makes you feel good, then why not?

It’s been an up and down ride for MMUK MAN since our formation in 2011. However, with recent media reports surfacing showcasing our current success, we feel it’s our duty to say a special thank you to the guys who have taken this incredible journey with us.
As co-founder, creator and general work horse, I’d like to personally thank each and every one of our clients for helping us build such a reputable, ethically sound and amazing organization. My makeup fairytale started at just 17, when my mum used to put foundation and concealer on my face to hide my horrendous acne. Little did I know that ten years later, I’d have a makeup for men following of over 30,000 customers, who I feel devoted to, in helping them transform their lives, look and confidence.
