When it comes to giving your skin an instant lift, applying male makeup probably won’t be the first thing that springs to mind. However, with the emergence of this growingly popular male beauty category, more men than ever before are slowly coming round to the realms of cosmetics. A few years back, talk of foundation, concealer and even bronzer on a boys night out may well have been greeted with jeers and sneers from your pals. However, fast-forward a few years and it’s a completely different ball game.

Whether it’s the rise of Instagram and the apparent impossibility of having a night out without popping up on one of your mates stories, or the fact that smartphones increase the likelihood of being papped off guard at any point, men and makeup is now more than just a thing - it’s a way of life. Giving your skin a boost in the bathroom and beyond with the likes of concealer and foundation is actually a lot easier than you may think and you’ll be surprised at the sheer volume of men who are quietly indulging too.

Here at MMUK MAN, we don’t see the harm in using every trick of the trade to look and feel your best. The truth is, adding a concealer for men to your bathroom weaponry will do more than just make your skin look great and there’s certainly no shame in that. Of course, it’s always important to look at every aspect of your skin care routine to make sure you’re giving your complexion the best chance to shine, but for when that’s not enough, you know you can call in the big guns. Let’s face it, we all get breakouts, but with a male concealer in your wash bag, you’re not going to pay the price for staying out a little late the night before an early start.

Raise the stakes in your grooming game and quickly get to grips with men’s concealer, firstly by finding your correct colour. You can do this by e-mailing us in a recent photograph, or by sending us an unfiltered selfie on Instagram, which we’ll then respond to with an expert colour match. Once you’ve done that, blanket and blur all kinds of facial imperfections with a gentle application over your unwanted blighters.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro in the male cosmetic game or a newbie looking for some serious ‘skinspiration’, we’ve got you covered - quite literally. Check out our best concealers for men for 2019 and put your best face forward every single day.
