First of all, it is not uncommon for men to wear makeup specially in the acting, beauty, and fashion industry. Putting on makeup for editorial photo shoots is a must to make it easier for the photographer to retouch. Not only that, male models need to look very 3 Dimensional to make them look chiseled, tanner, or very matte (oily skin can reflect too much light) and doesn't look good in magazines. These male models are used to wearing makeup, and are very conscious about touching their face. They have makeup artist and other people wiping their sweat for them in between clicks of the camera. Film making also magnifies the actors' skin 100x specially on tight takes so they really need to pile on the makeup to withstand all the lights, the cameras, and the heat. Without makeup, they will tend to look very pale and flat.
Makeup artists like me have to exaggerate these models jaw lines, cleft chins, nose lines, and cheekbones to make them look more high fashion and more model-esque when walking down the runway or posing for photo shoots.
I have always been a fan of Shu Uemura's Eyelash curler. For those of you who use Shu as well would know that new ones would take some time to get used to since the rubber is still stiff. But nonetheless, the best!
Years ago, before Shu Uemura gave away those extra rubbers in their boxes, you had to buy a new lash curler each time. Which was basically a waste of money because even though the curler itself was in perfect working condition, you had to discard it because the rubber was already torn.
I was about to discard my 3rd Shu curler back in 2008 that's why I had to find a new lash curler that produced the same perfectly curled lashes that it gave. That's when I discovered Fanny Serrano's lash curler. At first, all I saw from the FS counter were the black rubber thingies that you can insert in the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. Until the beauty consultant introduced me to "Tita Fanny's" curler.
They worked just like Shu's and it had the same dimension and design. I still have my Shu Uemura though (I am feeling a bit sentimental about throwing it away), but I also use FS eyelash curler.
Some people go off running in the other direction once they hear the word "contour". A lot of women can benefit from contouring when it is done right and in the right places. You do not have to completely alter your face to make you look stick thin, that would only make you look ridiculous.
In our line of work, contouring is crucial so that the model, bride, or celebrity will have dimension on camera or on tv. Otherwise, they will just look flat because of the harsh lights.
