There’s been one product in particular that’s been knocking around the men’s cosmetic cauldron for quite some years now and that is Lab Series’ BB Tinted Moisturizer, containing an SPF35 level of sun protection. Despite not stocking this product currently on our online shops, I do feel it’s important to give you guys an honest and frank review of this product, as I have personally used it every now and then over the years. Lab Series are a brand owned by Estee Lauder and whilst there is a feel of reduced quality mass production surrounding the brand, I’m delighted to say that this has been avoided with this BB Tinted Moisturiser for men.Read More

Men’s makeup Vlogger Jake Jamie Ward is nothing less than a true inspiration. Similar to MMUK MAN co-founder Alex Dalley, Jake-Jamie spent most of his teens trapped in doors, frightened to reveal his confidence crippling acne. Now 24 and having set up his very own YouTube channel devoted to men’s cosmetics, entitled ‘The Beauty Boy’, Mr. Ward himself is on his very own mission to make makeup genderless. Fronting a hugely successful social media campaign and featuring in some of the biggest magazines out there also, including Cosmopolitan, it’s certainly been a year to remember for this Staffordshire based sensation.Read More

When we developed our range of MMUK MAN concealers, our focus was to create a cream, full coverage product that disguised as many day to day imperfections men have to deal with as possible, whilst blending in really naturally to their skin. On top of this, we had to create a concealer for men that was masculine to look at and didn’t in any way resemble a female equivalent.Read More

As the demand for MMUK MAN’s cosmetic products rise, this week, we celebrate the launch of our brand new men’s makeup refill collection. The idea behind our brand new set of refills is that, if you have a particular favourite product that you can’t get enough of, instead of purchasing endless amounts of compacts, you can simply clip a refill in and go. Fill up your favourite compacts with your chosen product and save a tidy amount of money in the process, with our average refill costing around £18.00.Read More

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?
