yes, some makeup companies have products specifically designed for men. however they tend to be more expensive. the only noticeable difference is the packaging and sometimes the fragrance. imo it is not worth it -- you'd be better off purchasing regular makeup that could potentially have better formulas since they will come from bigger, reputable companies.

Instant Mattification pore perfecting gel-powder by Bliss --- (this one is clear)
Skin Perfection Gel by Perfekt (this one is tinted)
I use both of these products under and over some light liquid foundation and light concealer. Neither of these products actually conceal the scar with pigment like foundation or concealer does, but they do an amazing job of smoothing the skin, evening skin tone, and filling in the deep pores that are more visible in depressed scar areas.
They also prevent heavy concealers from looking cakey. Put some on before you use your dermablend and it will make a big difference! in my opinion.
For concealer I use Touche Eclat by YSL. It's very light and probably isn't the best product if you want opaque coverage... but I use it because it looks very natural, even when I use a lot, and it blends well.
For the guy who asked about make-up for men-- you should give the Bliss or Perfekt products a try. They're both very sheer and no one will suspect you're wearing make-up! There's also something called Photo-Finish by Smashbox which is totally clear.

Why would makeup for guys be any different than makeup for girls? Skin is skin. Why not just find the best makeup, period?
Because until now I couldn't find any makeup that wasn't obvious. I need something (if there is such) that you can put on and no one will suspect that you're wearing make-up. So I thought there might be such a line especially designed for men.
Thanks a lot for your answer. Do you know if they have a website and you can order it on the internet? I am in Europe. Thanks.

I like and recommend mineral makeup. It takes time to learn how to apply it and it also requires the proper tools to make it look imperceptible. It takes technique and practice to make it look natural, but it CAN be done. I like Everyday Minerals. Some like Smokey Mountain Minerals. I would not suggest Bare Minerals/Bare Essentuals as their makeup contains bismuth oxychloride and there's a distinctive sheen to the makeup; it's very obvious when on.

I love these kinds of discussions- I am a huge beauty product junkie, and have tried a few different foundations and formulas. The ones I found best are Laura Mercier silk creme foundation and Revlon Colorstay- both high coverage and great quality! The oil-free GloMinerals concealer is also amazing- really great finish and so smooth. I recently started a blog to share my beauty loves and my experience with acne, so check it out if you are interested! I would love a comment and feedback-

Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer (a little goes a long way. doesn't work well on tattoos, but is great on scars)
Cover Fx (you will probably need someone to help you get the exact color and setting powder mix)
Tarte The Eraser (not as heavy coverage, but doesn't make me break out)
L'oreal True Match (also, not as heavy coverage but great range of colors for exact match)
Someone mentioned MAC makeup. I love all their makeup EXCEPT their foundations and concealers, which make me break out.
Hope that helps!

I know someone suggested - Instant Mattification pore perfecting gel-powder by Bliss --- (this one is clear) and
Skin Perfection Gel by Perfekt (this one is tinted) but does anyone know if it works? I don't want to keep spending on products!! I've gone bankrupt. Would this be for someone with issues like mine?
What other brands are good for acne prone skin? Derma told me to try out non comodogenic or any water based foundations/concealers... it's just so tough to find those specific ones. Anyone know of any brands that do that - I know Makeup Forever does and Clinique too. Unfortunately the Clinique shades didn't work for my skin tone.
I'm between Fitzpatrick Skin Type IV and V.
Any help would be much appreciated
