Sean and Stuart try a ten minute make-up challenge

By admin on November 13th, 2008

Resident make up expert Zara put male cosmetics to the test recently thanks to our two willing guinea pigs, Sean Hannam and Stuart Waterman. The guys bravely applied bronzer, eyeliner and even fake eyelashes for the test with varying results. All I’m going to say is that from Stuart’s expertly made-up eyes the My Chemical Toilet editor’s either been been in too many male grooming vids or he has a weekend job none of us know about…

Where he’s a woman. What I’m trying to get across here is that Stuart Waterman is a woman in his spare time.

Justin Lee Collins? Bob Geldof?! Brandish’s Top 5 Unlikely Male Style Icons

By admin on July 15th, 2008

Round these parts we know who looks good and who doesn’t, but who are the more unlikely chaps working individualistic looks that we admire?

Will Reid: Although Justin may be prone to a too-tight t-shirt, The Friday/Sunday Night Project presenter’s sheer charisma and the fact that those tight tees usually bear a cult band logo mean he’s earned his place on this list. With his faded flares and large Aviators Justin has made many a Friday night worth staying in for, and if he gets his shaggy-yet-manicured locks cut, I for one will weep.

Body Shop For Men Face Scrub: the best a man can get?

By admin on June 20th, 2008

Body_Shop_Face-Scrub.jpgWhen it comes to the whole grooming palaver, I still have a resolutely male approach. I don’t mind using facial scrub, or moisturiser – I just want to find one that I like, that works for me, and I’ll stick with it. I’m not too interested in trying every facial scrub on the planet, though I was half-expecting to in order to find one that I liked enough to use every day.

Then I received a gift pack of Body Shop for men stuff, and that was it – their Face Scrub was the one for me, and has been ever since.

Sugarkane asymmetrical glasses will fit your wonky face nicely

By admin on June 20th, 2008

They say facial beauty is all about symmetry, don’t they? In which case, these asymmetrical specs will be perfect for the remaining, ugly 95% of the population. They’re by Sugarkane, and the quirky frame isn’t all they have to recommend them.

Sales

Liberty sale starts… yesterday

By admin on June 20th, 2008

liberty_sale.gifOK, so we’re a bit slow bringing you this info but *searches frantically for positive angle* that just means you miss the opening day rush, right? Plus it’s Friday. One is in a more shoppy mood on a Friday, I find.

So, yes – the Liberty spring/summer sale is now on, with up to 50% off selected items.

The Liberty website
mentions Marc Jacobs, Marni and Lanvin at reduced yet still reassuringly expensive prices. Rather annoyingly you can’t buy anything in the sale from the site itself, so it looks like a trip to one of their London stores may be in order.

At this point non-Londoners are quite welcome to curse me for bringing them news that is quite worthless to them.

[Thanks to Fancy Dan for the heads-up]

When We Were Casuals – for all your Fila, Reebok and, um, deerstalker needs

By admin on June 19th, 2008

deerstalker.jpgSay what you like about 80s football hooligans, but even while they were battering people’s heads in with metal poles, they had style. Or that’s the popular perception nowadays anyway – I’m sure they couldn’t ALL have been clad in Lacoste. Of course we don’t call this style of dress hooliwear, or whatever – it’s “terrace fashion”, sweetheart.

When We Were Casuals is a site that caters to the gentleman who likes his Fila, Adidas and Barbour gear. Yes, you can find Reebok Classics there, but you can also get some slightly more unusual bits and bobs – howsabout a Christy’s Deerstalker with silk lining? You know it’s just the thing you need to finish off your outfit. Only £40, too.

Puma Endangered Species Collection trainers

By admin on June 19th, 2008

met_puma.jpgYou know you’ll want to be SPOTTED out and about in these! Ha! Haha! Huh. These trainers are a collaboration between Puma, Atmos NYC and National Geographic photographer Mitsuaki Iwago, apparently. See how they have animal print and the words “South Pole” on them? What that means is that they are in honour of an endangered species.

I’m not sure wearing these means you’re likely to save any soon-to-be-extinct fwuffy animals, but at least you can show people that you think damn hard about such matters as you pick out expensive footwear.

Atmos’s website seems to be too cool to provide any details regarding anything whatsoever, so if you want a pair you might need to get your Google on, folks.

“Design me a t-shirt at Threadless.com” demands a swearing-festooned Moby

BE

LIEVABLE.

So this year we’ve had pop stars asking you to write them songs. We’ve had them asking you to name their “product”. Any other odd-jobs the pop firmament needs a hand with?

Yes. How about MAKING THEIR BLOODY CLOTHES? OK, not making exactly. Nobody’s asking you to sit there stitching together some home-made underwear for the Pussycat Dolls (I know, shame – you can have a go and send it to them anyway, that’s what I do).

Stuart tries Jean Paul Gaultier Monsieur ‘guyliner’

By admin on April 24th, 2008

Part two of the Stuart Waterman makeover, and I have to confess that after applying the eyeliner I laughed like I have never laughed before in my life, emitting some sort of inhuman cackle!

Anyway, the verdict? The eyeliner may have been a step too far for Stuart but he did take away the sheer gel bronzer so I declare a victory for male make up. The Jean Paul Gaultier range is priced between £29 and £9 and is available nationwide.

Lost’s Matthew Fox is the tear-free face of L’Oreal Men Expert

By ShinyMedia on July 16th, 2007

Matthewfox
This may be old news, but over the weekend I saw two adverts starring guys from Lost. Cool Water are using Josh Holloway – aka Sawyer – as their swimming hunk in their latest ad, while, as you’ll see after the jump, Matthew Fox is fronting the new L’Oreal Men Expert ad.

Now, when I started watching Lost, my first thought on seeing Mr. Fox was "Hey! That’s the guy from Party Of Five who, like his brother Bailey, cried in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE." If you never saw Party Of Five you may think I’m exaggerating a touch. I’m not. Ask anyone. And then whaddya know, he joins Lost and before you know it the "crying while trying not to cry" face is back on our screens every week. And providing plenty of opportunities for humour.
