Bro, your makeup is on point! … Said no one. Ever. While your man may not fully immerse himself into your makeup cabinet and coat his lashes with mascara every morning, there are a few things in your beauty arsenal he CAN benefit from. Sound surprised? He might, too … but trust us, he’ll thank you later.

your guy

1. Relief From Itchy Beard

A few drops of your L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil is the perfect way to combat your guy’s dry, itchy beard woes. The next time you see him going for a scratch, tell him to go find your facial oil (right next to the cooling eye cream, honey)!

2. To Combat Dark Circles

While you get to cover up any traces of an all-nighter with cooling creams and magical concealers, your man has to deal with dark circles and under-eye bags that show off his late-night tendencies. Do him a favor and hand him your male-friendly Kiehl’s Eye Alert, vitamin– and caffeine-infused eye treatment to fight apparent signs of fatigue.

Go a step further and apply some of your complexion highlighter pen like YSL Touche Eclat to make his dark circles disappear! He’ll look well-rested and refreshed … just beware because once he notices how awake he looks, he might steal this stuff from your makeup bag on the regular!

3. Deep Facial Cleanse

Yes, men have pores. Who knew? And like us ladies, they too have oil that can clog their pores and cause blackheads and blemishes. Hand your man your Clarisonic Mia 1 (he’ll love the electric pink one!), and tell him to get to scrubbin’! The facial brush will give him a deep cleanse and exfoliate his skin, which is something we’re going to assume he probably doesn’t do on his own …

4. Cover Up Surprise Blemishes

Everyone gets them, so why shouldn’t he be able to cover them up and feel confident too? In comes the concealer or Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation gel-stick. While he may scare easily and step back for a second, he’ll thank you once that scary, red pimple disappears right before his very eyes!

5. Soothe Chapped Lips

You know you’ve gone in for a kiss only to feel the uncomfortable scratch of your man’s chapped lips. Don’t let him suffer in silence, ladies. While he may think it’s lip gloss at first, he’ll be happy you let him borrow your lip treatment. Maybe get him one of his own? The Body Shop Hemp Lip Conditioner sounds pretty manly!

Do you think your man would ever borrow some of your beauty essentials and use them as his own? Let us know in the comments below!
