Beauty is about finding out who you are and understanding who you are. Once you do, you’ll be able to determine the types of beauty products that will highlight the best of yourself and conceal your flaws.
Picking the winning products with the rest of the judges is exciting to me because we all have different views and opinions.
A must-have beauty product for me is lip oil. Personally, I like Clarins’ because it’s very moisturising and my skin is very sensitive, and it’s among the few I can use.
Applying a deep cleansing mask is the fastest way to give yourself a makeover. You see incredible results within 15 minutes of washing it off.
Gel your hair is my top beauty tip for men. I’ve been doing it since I was 6 or 7 to remedy what’s usually a bad haircut.
That men don’t wear make-up is a huge beauty misconception. A lot of men apply it these days to look more well-groomed.
