When it comes to beauty, us girls tend to think we’ve got the topic mastered. After all, most of us apply make-up every day, and many of us have been taught to use a good skincare routine from quite a young age! Our mothers pass down beauty tips to us that have been passed down to them by our grandmothers, and so you’d think, with all those years of experience, we’d be masters of beauty skills.
But watch out ladies, with the rise of Youtube make-up tutorials and an increasing interest in male grooming, the boys are catching up, and some can do a more masterful cut-crease eye shadow look that we could ever hope to do. Here are 5 of my favourite male beauty bloggers: prepare to be in awe!
Laganja Estranja is a beautiful drag queen performer that will take your breath away with his make-up and photoshoots. Just have a quick browse through his Facebook page to look at some of his retro inspired looks, and beautiful multi-coloured eye make-up made using Sugarpill make-up. His beauty is enough to make you extremely jealous; it’s probably the first time you've ever wished you looked like a man!
Petrilude is a make-up artist well and truly. He tends to focus on non-traditional stage looks such as this tutorial above, which is a “frozen” make-up tutorial – you’ll probably also be intrigued by other looks he has created such as “Chinese Dragon”, “Skull Mask”, and “Unzipped”. The best thing about his make-up tutorials is that they can be copied by both men and women alike, so if you’re looking for a fabulous look in time for Halloween, then make sure you head over to his Youtube channel!
Misty Maven is another drag queen performer who is often featured by make-up brand Sugarpill. He’s pretty much mastered the art of blending those pigmented eyeshadows, and he can pull off the perfect sculpted brow better than many. Bare in mind, it’s probably twice as hard for men to get a sculpted look!
Vivienne is another male vlogger who is prettier than I am. His flawless skin is unimaginably perfect, and must be the work of a true expert in male cosmetics. Just watch a few of his videos about contouring and getting the perfect skin base, and stare in wonderment at his skills with a make-up brush. If you’re not a little bit jealous, you’re lying.
