The rise of men’s grooming: Exploring the growing popularity of men’s makeup items

If you’re like me, you probably didn’t realize there was such a thing as men’s makeup until recently. When I saw my first live-action movie with guys wearing foundation, I was skeptical that it could be true. But sure enough, men can wear makeup too! Whether looking for an easy way to look more attractive or figuring out what products will best suit your skin tone and needs, this list of the most popular male makeup items is here to help.

Eyebrow Pencil

Using eyebrow pencils is a terrific technique to define and shape your brows. They come in various colors, so you can choose one that best matches the color of your natural hair. If your brows are dark, look for something darker than them; if they’re light, go with something lighter.

Eyebrows should be groomed regularly with an eyebrow brush or comb (usually attached to the pencil). This helps keep them neat while also helping fill in any sparse areas with color from the pencil end of the product.


Eyeshadow is a cosmetic applied to the eyelids and under the eyebrows. It enhances the eyes, makes them look bigger or smaller, changes their shape, and complements your outfit. Eyeshadow can be used with other cosmetics like mascara or lipstick.

Eyeshadow can be used to complement your skin tone by matching it with complementary colors such as blue-green eye shadows for people with fair complexions; brown-based shades for medium complexions; deep purple tones for olive complexions; reds/burgundy hues for dark brown eyes; pinks/plums for greenish brown eyes etc., depending on whether you want an obvious contrast or subtle enhancement of your natural coloring.


Applying mascara is a simple process, but there are some tips you can follow to make sure your lashes look their best.

First, choose the right kind of mascara for your needs. There are many types, including waterproof formulas and ones with special brushes that help lengthen lashes or add volume. Consider using an eyelash curler before applying mascara if you want more curl in the finished product–this tool makes all the difference!

Next, one should know how long it takes to dry so they don’t rub their eyes after applying it or risk getting black dots on their cheeks (ew). This time varies depending on what product was used; some take longer than others, so keep this in mind when deciding how much time is needed between finishing up with one step and then moving on to another part like bronzer or blush.”

Lipstick/Lip gloss

Men’s lipstick and lip gloss are two different things. Lipstick is a more traditional color, but it can be used in any way you would use lipstick on women. Lip gloss is less common than lipstick but still has its place in men’s makeup. It provides color to your lips without being as prominent or noticeable as other options.

Lipsticks can fill in your lips if they’re too thin or small, giving them more definition and making them look fuller than before applying the product! Lipsticks can also be used just like regular ones; apply directly from the tube onto the center of the bottom lip, then blend outwards with a finger until desired shade is achieved.


Concealer is used to cover up blemishes, while the foundation is used to even out skin tone. Both can be used together and are applied with a brush or sponge.

There are many different men’s makeup items to choose

Some items are an excellent alternative to women’s makeup, while others are designed for men. Men’s makeup can be used for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To cover up blemishes and scars
  • To cover up acne on your face or back (if you have acne)
  • To create an even skin tone across the face, which is especially important if you have dark circles under your eyes or other discoloration issues like rosacea or sun damage
