Gender expression within the beauty space has always been encouraged, but the actual representation of men in beauty was still lack thereof. Brands such as YSL Beauty, Morphe, Glossier, Freck Beauty and more have been long at the forefront displaying the acceptance of men in makeup and challenging gender norms. Although there has been a dramatic shift, male beauty editors, influencers and enthusiasts alike still have had a time getting the opportunities they deserve, especially men of color.

It’s time to ask ourselves why we are miring our sense of self in an antiquated construct like gender, especially when it asks us to refrain from our authentic self in exchange for rigid, uninspired, derivative depictions of herternomartive standards. We know that makeup is longer just for women. Gone are the days of the women-only beauty counters at your local mall. It has become intrinsically clear that people, no matter their gender, are tired of being policed on how they choose to express themselves through beauty.

To dive deeper into the essence of self-expression, we’ve rounded up our favorite male beauty influencer accounts of specialists that range from skincare, body care, haircare and makeup. Keep reading on for more.
