Natural Makeup for Men : My Three Key Components

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David

Ok, here’s a quick preface: I know this is a bit of a taboo subject for men but it really doesn’t have to be… I mean, it’s 2020!! With the rising popularisation of male beauty YouTubers like James Charles, Edward Avila, etc.; gender-neutral cosmetics or even cosmetics designed purely for men; and RuPaul’s Drag Race (though that’s not the vibe we’re going for here!), we all know that men wear makeup – fact.

Growing up in Malaysia, I had no ideal what ‘personal style’ was… Heck! I didn’t even know that ‘style’ was a thing until a couple of years ago. For the looooongest time I just wore what I thought looked kind of decent, without actually knowing if it suited me… even though I like to think I’d always had an eye for it. Whatever ‘it’ is.

Having experimented with my personal style quite a bit – especially recently, having acquired my first piercing and changed up the same slicked-back hair I’d worn for years – I decided to share what I’ve learnt from my journey to finding my own personal style. Continue Reading
