Apart from using the occasional powder to stop my face from appearing shiny after fake-tanning, a bit of highlighter to enhance and make my cheekbones pop, a smattering of mattifier to smooth things out, I wouldn't necessarily say I was a big makeup user... But having read that list back, perhaps I am!?
I remember asking my Mum when I was about 15/16 if she would go to Boots for me to purchase some foundation for me as I felt a little embarrassed and as though it wasn't deemed as 'the thing to do' what with a young lad wearing makeup at the time. As time has gone on and my confidence has grown massively, I now couldn't care less and I think the stigma surrounding makeup for men has dwindled rather a lot due to the sudden rise in social media and the pressures in looking the absolute best 24/7.
Nowadays men seem to take huge pride in their appearance and if makeup can help aid and perfect how they look, then I don't think they would hesitate in making that makeup purchase!
I had recently been approached by MMUK Man to try out a few of their products from their makeup line and I received;
FACE FOUNDATION - SHADE NO.5 COOL NEUTRAL
I applied the Face Foundation with a brush and only used a small amount to begin with to slowly build it up if needed. I found that this gave me a smooth coverage which matched my skin tone perfectly!
The foundation felt light upon my face and didn't feel too heavy or dense either which was great! It also didn't appear too noticeable which is the look I was after and it helped to cover up a few of my blemishes also.

BRONZE BABY BRONZER - GOLDEN GODDESS
Prior to using the Bronze Baby Bronzer, I always find bronzer to be a little too harsh on my skin and as I'm quite naturally fair, it can often look as though my face can be slightly dirty and a little too OTT!
This 'Golden Goddess' Baby Bronzer however, was at first slightly too dark for my skin tone but after brushing it into my skin a few more times, the Bronzer enhanced my cheeks and I found that the Bronzer looked better on my skin after fake tanning!

I have quite naturally long eyelashes and I'll be honest, I found the mascara made my eyelashes look as though I had 'falsies' on...
Which I is absolutely ideal if that is the look that you're aiming for! But for me personally, I prefer to have a more natural look around my eyes.

COVER UP CONCEALER STICK - SHADE NO.5 COOL NEUTRAL
The Cover Up Concealer Stick was the one I was most looking forward to trying out!
I have a blemish on my cheek which is highly frustrating and when I used the Cover Up Stick, it completely vanished! The shade was perfectly matched to my skin tone and it didn't feel too heavy on my skin and blended in naturally.

Overall, I have really enjoyed using a few products from the MMUK Man make-up range and I have found it to be a fun and unique way to play around with for my blog! My favourites from the range were the Face Foundation and Cover Up Concealer Stick and although the Manscara didn't work personally for me, it may work perfectly for you? When it comes to make-up it is all about finding the right shade for your skin tone and most importantly, having fun with it!
Have you shopped with MMUK Man before? If so, what did you purchase? Do you have any favourites from the range? Any you think I should perhaps try? Do you wear a lot of make-up yourself?
