For the Fellas: Guess What? The Fenty Effect Works for Men, Too!

When we heard that Get Out and Black Panther star Daniel Kaluuya got a little grooming help from Fenty Beauty at the 2018 Academy Awards, we admired his transparency—and lack thereof. While men are generally expected to go makeup-free (lucky you, Fellas), no one has flawless skin all the time—and there are times you really want (and need!) to.


And that’s why we love Fenty Beauty for taking an egalitarian stance and creating a tutorial for men on how to easily achieve a “second skin” finish. Fenty global artist Hector Espinal and model Karon team up for the cameras to break down the gender gap with a much-needed grooming guide, teaching the fellas how to obscure razor bumps and other minor imperfections—because fresh faces are for everyone!


While seeing our male counterparts dip into our Fenty foundation might take a little getting used to (we can’t have nothin’, can we?), we’re willing share our secrets—and are glad Fenty is leading the way (as usual).

Bottom line: Fellas, don’t be afraid to be flawless. The Fenty Effect is for you, too!

Nah, I prefer my men a little flawed, skinwise.
