Makeup for men is trending, and celebrity makeup artist, Kristofer Buckle has all the best tips-and-tricks for his beloved male followers. 

Although not everyone can have the luxury of a New York Fashion Week glam shesh with KB like beauty guru Bretman Rock, we've gathered Kristofer's go-to's when it comes to flawless makeup for men.  

Flawless Complexion

It's all about the skin! Having a smooth, even complexion is a Kristofer's #1 tip when it comes to makeup for men-- and all of his clients in general. Plus, flawless skin is the perfect place to start if you're a makeup-newbie. 

KB's Triplicity Perfecting Foundation Stick is his go-to foundation for male clients because it provides customizable coverage with a built-in-primer- eliminating the need for extra products. 

Pro Tip: Use Undiscovered Full Coverage Concealer to brighten your under-eye area and eliminate darkness/ discoloration.  

Add Dimension

Play up your facial structure by adding a little extra dimension to your cheekbones and jawline. Try Exposure Matte Warming Powder- a lightweight powder that adds a healthy-glow to your skin. 

Pro tip: Using the thicker end of the Dual Ended Contour Brush to apply bronzer under your cheekbones. 

Define Your Eye

We're all about guyliner- and lucky for us, it's trending. 

KB's Graphic Line Eyeliner is rich in bold black pigment, which adds depth and dimension to eyes- It also features a built in smudger and sharpener so you can create smoked-out, versatile looks. 

Happy Glamming!
