Moisturizing is the first and most vital step when it comes to makeup application; doing so will create a smoother makeup application, and will ensure long lasting wear.
Allow 5 minutes for moisturizer to fuse into your skin.
You will want to apply a Primer as the next step in your makeup application regime. There are many benefits to a Primer: a smooth base for your makeup; reducing oil and shine; and minimizing the appearance of pores.
One of the best Primers is probably already sitting in your medicine cabinet. Nivea Post Shave Balm. Since it contains an immense amount of Glycerin, it will perform as an adhesive property which will allow foundation to adhere to your skin for all day wear.
Here is where we get into the actual makeup. Don’t let seeing the word FOUNDATION cause your masculinity to wither away into nonexistence; it really is nothing to be fearful of.
I recommend sticking to a matte and mousse foundation; the matte will refrain from producing a shiny/dewy finish, while the mousse will be light and create a “makeup-free” look.
To finish, Blush is a simple way to add life and color to your complexion. A pale or baby pink is optimal.
A good tip to abide by is to match your Blush to the color of the inside of your lip; this will insure a more subtle and natural look.
