It’s beauty week on TFG and we are looking at the most recent trends in men makeup. The right way can make you look younger and the wrong way well…

Pop and alternative ideals have been wearing makeup for ages. Black eyeliner has been a guy goth thing since the 80s. Now, with the rise of Korean boy bands that seem to wear it offstage as well, men makeup is a hot trend. We bring you three tips to wearing it without looking too Boy George or David Bowie.
A dry face can lead to wrinkles and a simple SPF moisturizer could make alot of difference in the long run. Since most jobs stop hiring people after the age of 50, staying in the workforce is the highest incentive for this trend.
If you do have uneven skin or pimples, try an Spf30 with a tint so you have mild coverage without using an concealer.
Women don’t have thick brows so we have to resort to brow pencils as fillers. For men, getting your brows shaped can make your face appear slimmer.
Keep those lips from drying out with a little lip balm. Using balms with peppermint oil with make your lips appear fuller.
Please don’t contour or wear eyeshadow if you don’t feel comfortable. Mascara and eyeliner are already goth staples if you want to feel adventurous.
As we finally say good bye to chilly days and into Spring and then Summer; the warmer temps are a perfect time to go vacationing! Disney world or Disney land is the perfect place to visit..while wearing this whimsical upcoming trend….Disney Bound! Disney bounding was created by Disney fans who didn’t like the fact that adults can’t wear costumes at any Disney resorts so they created looks inspired by their favorite Disney characters! You don’t even have to visit Disney to wear this style! So this week we are putting together Disney bound outfits inspired by villains! We are starting with men’s and doing Beauty And The Beast’s Gaston ( the village hero/bully obsessed with winning Belle’s hand) enjoy
Wearing cycling shorts causally is the latest trend but creating outfits can be tricky. We styled 3 outfits to pull off the trend without having to buy a bike.

The cycling short has gone the way of causal sportswear and was seen all over the runway last year. We finally have a chance to rock the look IRL. We picked these 3 looks for guys to try that seemed street friendly right off the runway.
This look makes the shorts the vocal point of the outfit so pick a color that you are comfortable with wearing like red. Then match everything to it.
This was a fall look so remove the heavy jacket for something lighter but still hits at the waist.
We already coveted this blazer and cycle shorts look but we updated it with a logo, graphic or brightly colored tee to break up all the neutrals.
Suit weather usually is that time in fall when the weather dips into the 60s but brands like Dior and John Lawerence Sullivan is reimagining for the summer. Here are 3 tips to wear this trend.

Shirtless men in blazers? Well, we can’t say we don’t like the idea but if you don’t feel comfortable shirtless then you have come to the right blog.
So we are going to go with low, mid and high comfort outfits for this challenge of taking a runway trend and using it in real life.
Sheer tops for men are all over the runway for Spring and is great way to give an illusion of nudity without being naked. If a sheer button down is out of your budget, then try a sheer sports tank instead. Loose fitting pants can complete the look but if you do want to show some legs opt for burmuda shorts instead.
Okay, so your a little comfortable with your shirtless body but have a tummy? Go shirtless and use those two buttons on a long blazer to hid the tummy and add a necklace to draw attention to your neckline. Add a belt on a pair of pants for added style.
Copy the runway but remember to focus on your style. If you like casual then pair with denim shorts and if you like to be more formal add burmuda shorts or a sporty person can add biking shorts.
It’s cold outside so let’s warm up a little with some men spring 2019 trends. What’s up with neon and the pieces you can get now!
By Yvette E
Step back in the 80’s this spring with neon colored suits, pants, jackets and more all seen on the Milan runway this past February fashion week!
We combed through the internet for 3 outfits that you can buy now to get ahead of your friends.
Champion hoodie, American Apparel sweatpants, nike sneakers
This outfit clocks in under $200 and is available right now at the company’s website. The nike sneakers are available at footaction. If you feel this outfit is too bright, pick one of the separate pieces and then pair with white items.
Next up is a skinny fit suit from offerup.com at 89.99 and comes in neon green and salmon. As always, breakup the separates until you get comfortable wearing them together and get a size up if you have broad shoulders or just not into skinny fit.
Some people think a preference for joggers is casual but really wearing jeans and joggers are 2 different things. So if you are into jeans and tees (Asos, $29), try just adding neon tees to dark jeans to bring out the color and pair with a neon sneaker.
Note: It is NOT ok to mix and match neon colors so keep the palette in the same hue and it may be best to pick a color and just commit. Neon orange is the easiest to wear but neon yellow and green are the easiest to buy.
Microtrends are trends that come from the street and not the runway. We spotted men on bomber jackets and fell in love. See how to rock this trend IRL.

Where does the bomber jacket come from?
Thebomber jacketoriginates from military clothing which trickled down into subcultures such as punk and has recently made its way into high fashion.
The jacket was used as Military garb in the 1950s and made it into fashion in 1963. In recent years, the bomber jacket has been in and off the runway and currently is not.
So what’s with the renewed love for a jacket that isn’t trending?
Even though the bomber jacket isn’t on trend, it does have roots in the punk subculture and rebellion seems to be the hot button topic in today’s world. From the marchs in New York against immigration reform to the yellow jacket demonstrations in France, rebellion is everywhere. Of course, the bomber jacket’s origin of WWII deviance also has linked it to standing up for what is right when talking about human rights.
As always, fashion has its roots in current events.
How to rock the look
Dressing it down
Pair it with sweat pants and layer a hoodie under it for extra warmth if you live in a cold weather climate. Add a fleece under the hoodie if temperatures fall below 18°F.
Dressing it up
Pair with wide leg pants and layer with full body fleece under garment. Pair with a sweater that accents the colors in the bomber jacket (match the trim color).
It’s been cold for a while now but we can no longer hold on to the hope that fall will happen with just 3 weeks to winter. We have curated 5 winter accessories that are so hot right now for our male readers.

The plaid scarf
Plaid has made a come back this season for both sexes but men still mostly have the traditional block and stripe combination.
Ditch the beanie
A bowler hat is so chic and was seen on multiple runways this season. There are styles available in black if you don’t feel adventurous.
Fanny Pack crossbody
A must in every cool guy’s closet! Try a super large one with logo for a super standout vibe. Place it low key in neutral colors.
Sports themed cardigans
A little on the nerdy side, this microtrend will have you turn heads this season in a good way.
Puff it up
Puffer jackets are finally cool for guys and a great way to keep warm!
Like pastel pink this summer, yellow has been seen on fall runways for men from the stripe on the fireman jacket to a full on sweater. Here’s how to rock the hue IRL.

It is always scary wearing a bright color since the whole idea is to get noticed which few of us actually like to do. Fashion has always contradicted us on this notion. So how does one wear yellow without looking like Big Bird or an attention seeker? We have 3 suggestions (take it or leave):
1. Light yellow highlights with trim that points to the hue or an accessory like socks or hats.
(sweater Asos 29.99, Shirt Macy’s 33.75)
2. Mildly adventurous? Try a sweater or the shirt that goes under the sweater (navy blue to pop the hue or a brown hue to mute it a little).
3. Ready for full on yellow? The first two looks in the opening image are the truly bold but the second is more realistic. Still not ready for a full yellow sweater, pick a striped one instead.
