Men in Make – Up?

Today on my usual journey to work, nothing seemed unusual to me, apart from, on the other side of the tube, I saw a man applying make-up.

Now I consider myself to be pretty open-minded, but I did have to look not just once, but three times, as I was, to be honest, a little shocked to see this normal guy putting on his under eye concealer, very casually, without any hesitation.

It made me think, I must be pretty naive to think that it’s only women who wear make-up. I know that people on TV, in film, theatre and on the camera have to wear make up, as they need to dull the reflections from the lights and so on. But it didn’t really occur to me that men wore make up?

I think in today’s world, people do what they feel to make them feel more confident. And I see no problem with this. In fact, I say they should advertise these products more freely, and then it may encourage more men to use the products actively – anything to give people more confidence!

How To Measure Yourself

You may want some help when doing this.

Height

1. Stand straight with your feet together

2. Start at the top of your head and pull the measuring tape down to the floor (you may need some help with this)

3. Don’t wear shoes

Waist

1. Your waist is usually found 1inch above your bellybutton

2. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, not so tight so allowing you to breathe comfortably

Hips

1. Your hips are generally about 7” below your waist (depending on your size)

2. Looking in a mirror, find the widest part of your hips

3. The measuring tape should brush across both of your hipbones

Shoulder

1. You start by measuring at the back, from one edge of the shoulder socket to the next shoulder socket

Bust

1. Relax your arms

2. Keep your bra on, as you’re not measuring your bra size

3. Pull the tape around the back across the shoulder blades, then under your arms and across the fullest part of your bust – take measurement
