Male Beauty has been a topic that used to hold a lot of stigma. Makeup and general beauty was seen as gendered towards females and men were never seen using it. However now society has become more open-minded, men are starting to take the stage and spotlight with their stunning makeup looks, YouTube videos and top skincare tips. I think it is fantastic!
One of my favourite male beauty gurus is Manny MUA. He took the social media world by storm and gave us colourful makeup looks, makeup tips and even now his own palette! He is super talented and open about his LGBT life and he is a true role model for young men wanting to show who they truly are. He takes criticism and negativity with a pinch of salt and always uses it as humour, and that’s what I love about him!
Another one of my favourite male youtubers is Michael Finch. I only recently discovered Michael and I find myself laughing my head off at the majority of his videos! His makeup skills are insane and his Australian accent is really pleasing to my ears. I would say he is more a 17+ YouTuber due to the language he sometimes uses but I find him hilarious. I would love to have his eyeshadow skills!
Now not all male influencers have to wear makeup themselves! Mario Dedivanovic (also known as Makeup By Mario) is one of the best makeup artists in the world, but doesn’t wear makeup himself! You may all know him as Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist and he is amazing. His techniques and skills are jaw-dropping and he recently did his first Masterclass in London!
Another male makeup artist that I love is Mmmmitchell. He maybe isn’t as ‘big’ as the other men I’ve listed but his skills are insane. Even just scrolling through his Instagram page and looking at the eyeshadow looks he does, I’m in awe! The pigment he manages to portray from most eyeshadows is crazy to me! He is also not shy of a blinding highlight which makes my heart happy!
