Step 3 - Don’t forget to moisturise - Take a good quality male moisturiser and rub it evenly into your skin, ensuring you reach every one of your face’s crevices. Again, allow to soak in for a couple of minutes as your entire face starts to take a more supple and smooth approach.
Step 4 - Build the foundations - This step is entirely optional, however, employing the use of a tinted moisturiser for men or a mens foundation will completely even your skin tone, give your skin a blanket of natural coverage and hide those less defined facial imperfections.
Step 5 - Send in the heavies - Now it’s time for your male concealer. Utilize it in a stick form a dab it directly onto your remaining more defined spots. Be sure to press slightly heavier on the more raised and visible pimples, ensuring more product is dispensed for effective cover up. Once complete, swiftly move on to your final step.
Step 6 - Blend and go - Using your clean fingertip or even a mens blending brush, gently dab the product into your imperfections and surrounding areas. Discover how far just a little skin touch up can take you by completing the process across all of your remaining spots.
