A major reason that we love makeup is that it allows for self-expression, creativity, and a sense of community and identity. In the past decade, it has become increasingly accepted by our society for men to wear makeup (lots of love and an immense thank you to those who pioneered the fight for this as part of a fight for profound, large-scale freedoms), and we are so excited about it! Makeup, just like hair color, is for everyone and anyone no matter who they are inside and out. We’re in our feelings today at HSP, sorry not sorry for this #softpost.

From daytime looks to full drag, here are some looks from #meninmakeup that we love!

As many may remember, CoverGirl pleasantly surprised us when they hired James Charles as their first male spokesmodel two years ago. We’ve followed and loved him ever since.

Here’s Connecticut makeup artist Korey Thomas serving us a flawless everyday look.

Highligher enthusiasts, take a tip from Gary Thompson’s gorgeously glowy and glossy beat.
