In early 2017, the face of the cosmetic line Maybelline became a man. Decorative cosmetics has crossed the usual boundaries of male and female and turned into an instrument that applies to people of any gender. However, male visagistes still face prejudices in their profession.
We are used to women fighting for their rights to have the freedom of choice in terms of their occupation. However, we forget that men also must decide what really feel like doing. Some men prefer being make up artists and they do succeed.
Check out the list of 7 male makeup artists whose skills are better than a woman’s. Let us know what you think of gender stereotypes in terms of field of occupation, as we are really interested in your opinion.
#1 Tom Peso
The greatest achievement of Tom Peso, in his opinion, is the make-up that he did on Princess Diana for her shooting at the Vanity Fair. It was her last shot.
#2 Peter Phillips
Initially, Peter Phillips dreamed of becoming a hairstylist, but he became a very talented makeup artist, instead. From 2008 to 2012, he served as creative director for makeup line Chanel. Now Peter Phillips comes up with bold images not only for Chanel's house, but also works closely on fashion shows with the brands Fendi, Dries Van Noten, Alexander McQueen and others.
#3 Dick Page
In the narrow circles of the makeup artist, Dick Page is called a rebel. He always tries not to do it like everyone else does.
