Men in makeup was not just unusual here in the Philippines but it was looked down upon; nevertheless, we can see progressive strides towards improving this notion throughout the years. From Vice Ganda; Bretman Rock to Paolo Ballesteros- these are just some of the most powerful Filipino names in the makeup industry that inspire others to explore and be themselves, but why do some men still have issues experimenting with make up even if they want to? Some men are having difficulties finding the right product that caters to their needs. There exists a stigma wherein people believe that only queer men wear make up. This results in certain men wanting a more natural finish when it comes to make up. The perfect products to achieve that natural “no makeup-makeup look” as well as those that are great for “on-the-go” are hard to come by in the Filipino market.
In Korea, makeup is a beauty staple not only for women but also for men.
