For a lot of guys, managing facial hair with makeup wear can often pose a conflict of interest, so to speak. Getting to grips with men's beard fillers or enhancers, for example, can seem like a real struggle. Likewise, if you're looking to take advantage of the power of a foundation, concealer or bronzer, navigating these products around a beard can sometimes be a challenge.
Facial Hair sometimes also inhibits skin cell respiration and can cause your pores to become clogged, resulting in a higher likelihood of getting small spots within your beard also. However, lay down your bathroom weapons gentlemen, because with MMUK MAN, we are today going to tell you how to combine all your favourite products with a nice hefty facial forest, making it a recipe of grooming success for all gentlemen out there desperate to strike the perfect balance.
First off guys, mastering beard filler needn't be a thankless task. With just a few practices, a lot of men get the hang of it, instantly boosting your facial bulk in the process. Tidy up stray hairs, thinning patches and areas of deforestation, simply by using the tip of a blending brush, containing the smallest amount of beard filler. Apply beard filler directly to areas of trouble with a steady dabbing motion, as product quickly thickens and defines languishing facial hair. Remembering to work the product up through your beard for instant success.
Now, when it comes to mastering other men's makeup products whilst your sporting a facial showpiece, it doesn't have to be that hard. Start off with a good moisturiser to soften your face, as well as your beard. A skin primer or moisturiser for your appropriate skin type will do just the trick and they really allow product to settle on your face nice and evenly.
Next, if you're applying tinted moisturiser or foundation, remember to apply directly to your forehead, around your cheeks, nose and only secondary rub it into your beard - basically meaning don't put blobs of product in the palm of your hand and rub directly into your beard. Doing so will make it look ginger and may result in product just getting caught up in your facial hair. You have less need to cover the skin underneath your beard with product, so apply it in the right areas and if needs be, use an appropriate foundation brush.
The rules stay the same for other products such as concealer and BB cream. However, when it comes to men's bronzer, the rules slightly change. When applying men's bronzer, you want to apply it to the areas of your face that naturally catch the sun, for example, your nose, cheeks and forehead. None of these areas are where your beard should be, unless you're auditioning to be an extra on the next 300 film. Play in the right areas gents and combining makeup, beard growth and perfect skin will reap you so many rewards inside and outside of the bathroom.
