The terms “beauty” and “makeup” steadily become more inclusive as the world accepts that both women and men can benefit from proper grooming. More than just to look good, many beauty and makeup products nowadays carry with them skincaring properties, so it’s definitely something to consider to add to your daily routine.
While women wear makeup to beautify or enhance their features, men’s makeup approach is quite similar but also different at the same time. Confused? Don’t be because at the end of the day, beauty and makeup products are there to help bring forth the best version of yourself. The key to men’s grooming with makeup is having the right products and using it the right way to achieve a natural, I-woke-up-like-this look. With the right guidance, it is quick and simple.
Here, the tips and tricks to groom like a pro:
STEP 1: PREP THE SKIN
Start your base by making sure you have a good skincare routine. If you prep the skin properly, your makeup will look more natural while reducing the chances of flaking. After cleansing, massage a thin layer of moisturiser all over your face and let the potion sink in for a few minutes before applying the next product. Not sure which one to use? We recommend M·A·C Lightful C + Coral Grass Softening Lotion to help lock in moisture and give skin an instant, natural glow, thanks to its marine bright formula which contains seaweed extracts and vitamin C. The product is also infused with Coral Grass and Super Duo Charged Water that boost skin hydration for a smooth and supple complexion.

How to Care for Your Skin During Menopause
By the time they reach menopause — which officially begins one year after a woman’s last period — many women think they have their lives figured out. Careers are well established; children are grown and independent; and there’s more time for leisure and self-care. Yet many women in their 40s and 50s are surprised to suddenly notice changes on their skin, including acne and age spots. Fortunately, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology say that while many of these changes are inevitable due to hormones, there is a lot women can do at home to lessen these effects. To care for your skin during menopause, Diane S. Berson, MD, FAAD recommends the following tips:
