Man Palette

Skin Tones Palette For Mens Makeup

We know it is a mans world out there and mens makeup is fast becoming a part of it. The most common enquiry we receive from gentlemen who are looking to buy makeup products is how do they know what shade to pick that will work best for them. We've tried numerous strategies over the years and discovered that the most effective way to discover your colour is to send a photo into Adam, our chief mens makeup artist.

Attach a recent photograph of either your face, or even the back of your hand and send it to and we will get back to you within four working hours, advising you of the best shade we stock, best suited to your skin tone. All photos are dealt with strict confidentiality and are immediately removed from our system once a reply has been sent to you. When it comes to choosing what tone of makeup you need, we understand it can be time consuming and tricky.  Our below palette has also been designed to help you quickly identify your skin tone, understand how far you can deviate from this tone to maintain subtlety and buy products accordingly.  

As a general rule, the colour N3 has been designed for very pale skin types, whilst N4 and N5 are for white caucasian gentlemen. N7 has been designed for tanned men, or those with a hint of tan all year round, with N8 being for very tanned guys. N95 is very common for Indian and Pakistani men, whilst N10 matches perfectly for black gentlemen.

We understand busy gentlemen like you haven’t got time to waste trawling the web to discover the makeup shade for them.  With our wide variety of brands on offer, the number of different shades available for each could cause nothing but problems when it comes to choosing the one for you.  Not to mention the duplication of different brands’ shade names which can look completely different.  Perfait, beige, soft beige ... things can get just too much.  

We have created the below palette and matched these shades to the shades available in every single product we have in store; making it easy for you to choose what shades you’re looking for when it comes to buying online.  General consensus states that a man can sway one or two skin tones lighter or darker than his natural skin tone.  This makes blending perfect, also, subtlety and masculinity are maintained.  Identify with your hand which colour is closest to your skin tone and remember you have room for maneuver and use the drop down box on each relevant product page to choose the mens makeup shade that’s just right for you.
