The difference between conventional makeup and warpaint makeup for men is that warpaint has been designed to be invisible. With no need for crazy contoured artistry most associated with makeup, warpaint is simply elevated grooming - a subtle step up from your daily moisturising routine.
Warpaint for men is simply an option - one you can take or leave as you see fit to finesse your appearance. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, below you’ll find everything you need to know about warpaint's products and how to use them,
Prime your skin
Like preparing a blank canvas for an oil painting, preparing your skin is essential for guaranteeing an even base for your makeup. As the first product in your makeup routine, it ensures a smooth airbrushed effect that keeps your makeup in place all day. It’s not essential, so can be skipped when you’re in a pinch, but the War Paint primer helps the rest of your makeup thrice by reducing the appearance of large pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
Perhaps the most essential product in your makeup repertoire - Concealer. Whether you want to cover up dark circles, scars, or an acne breakout, use concealer to literally conceal anything you’d rather hide. Warpaints concealer is an easy to use cream base formula, which is as easy as dabbing on with your finger - the heat created between your skin will help melt the product into your skin, ensuring a seamless blend.
Summer is gone, but a natural looking glow can still be achieved with a tinted moisturiser. Basically a mix of moisturiser and foundation, tinted moisturizer is great to use if you’ve noticed your overall complexion is slightly uneven. Super easy to use - simply apply to your fingers and gently apply into your skin. It’s lightweight and buildable - meaning you can add more if desired.
If you really want to achieve that just-got-back-from-the-maldives look, use bronzer to add warmth definition to your face and body. Apply this over your foundation or tinted moisturiser with a brush.
Brow and beard gel
Get a hold of your unruly eyebrows and beard by adding a slick finish. Because men’s facial hair is slightly thicker and fuller than women’s they need more maintenance. Warpaint’s lightweight, non-sticky beard and brow gel will shape and control your facial hairs, keeping them in place all day.
If your brows, temples, nose and cheeks tend to get shiny - join the club. Thankfully the warpaint anti-shine powder helps to neutralise and absorb oils to prevent you from looking like a bike reflector. Using is easy - simply apply with a powder brush for a smooth matte finish.
