THE BOY BAND PROJECT, on set Men’s Makeup
Have you heard of The Boy Band Project yet? Hello beauties! Today’s post is all about Men’s Makeup. I had the pleasure of doing makeup on set yesterday for the up and coming musical group, The Boy Band Project. I took my men’s makeup kit to none other than Down Town Los Angeles and made the 5 boys camera ready! Now, I’m ready to share the secrets to men’s makeup with you all today!
Men’s Makeup for The Boy Band Project
Aright, so I’m not talking about guy-liner or man-scara when I say men’s makeup. I’m talking about making a man look flawless for camera. Some of the best men’s makeup I’ve seen are on famous television men, like Stephen Colbert. Or look at musicians in music videos like Pharrell. While these gentleman area very handsome, they still rely on talented makeup artists to make them look absolutely flawless for camera. Same with my set job yesterday. The 5 young boys are naturally handsome, but just needed a little professional touch from me to make them camera ready.
The best part? It doesn’t look like they have makeup on. This is the key to successful men’s makeup.
So how do we makeup artists put makeup on men without making them look made up? The secret is to keep it to a minimum.
All men need are groomed brows, an even complexion, and lip balm…and that’s it!
Some men are in dire need of a trim, remember to only trim the tips of the brows. And all men need clear brow gel to tame their furry man brows. This is will make a huge difference in their appearance, as their brows frame their face.
Stick with concealer and tinted moisturizer for men. Less is more, always.
Apply a matte lip moisturizer. Jack Black makes a great one for men. Dry lips never look good on camera.
There you have it, quick and easy tips to make a man camera ready. This is great for set jobs, but also works for weddings and others special occasions!
