Boys in Beauty
Posted on 18 May 2016
We want to give a huge shout-out and congratulate Alan (@alannized), Manny (@mannymua733), James (@jcharlesbeauty) and Patrick (@PatrickStarrr) for all of their successes and achievements so far, including their feature article in Marie Claire Magazine entitled “The Beauty Boys of Instagram.”
Through their personal stories, they give insight into how they have transformed the way makeup and gender roles are viewed in today’s society while simultaneously inspiring many people. “The boys in beauty aren’t blurring gender - they’re expanding it,” says Marie Claire Magazine.
They are passionately driven young men who thoroughly enjoy and encourage the art of makeup and we are happy to support them! Read each of their stories and what led them to where they are today.
Take Manny, for example, who says in the article, “Men in makeup wasn't seen as normal, especially a couple of years ago. It wasn't as open as it is now; it’s really cool seeing all the upcoming boys doing makeup.”
He now has his own makeup palette and collaborated with OFRA to create three beautiful Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks named “Aries,” “Charmed” and “Hypno” that are part of our permanent collection!
We admire you men, for your passion in makeup and beauty and thank you for your continuing support of us. Keep on doing your thing, guys!
