The Art of Male Makeup book

A tool for the future generation of makeup artists

As a professional makeup artist and qualified academic educator, I could not find a reference book of this specific genre of makeup so I felt compelled to just make one happen.

“A must have makeup student reference book”

Makeup is about self expression and confidence, the book is there to show what can be achieved and offer advice should someone want to create a more masculine edge to their work or appearance.

Mark Bowles

“One week in London we created a visual statement”

Male makeup can be anything from stealth to theatrical, from invisible to visible. Either way, it’s at the control of the male and how he chooses to express himself.

David Horne

“Introducing a new perspective, a new voice and methodology”

The book is a ‘go to’ guide, a point of reference to help artists and students be inspired by the canvas of a male face in an industry dominated by feminine beauty techniques.
