2020 Men’s Folio Grooming Awards Winners: Make-up

There’s been a significant rise in the levels of social acceptance towards men wearing makeup since the turn of the century. Here, we’ve selected the best six key items for you to look your best.

Best Primer

Burberry Fresh Glow Luminious Fluid Base


Men’s Folio says: “The light formula gives a beautiful sheen that adds a wonderful glow to my skin without making it too shimmery or sparkly which is perfect for a no-makeup look. It’s very easy to apply as a liquid base and blends nicely.”

Best Lip Balm

Gucci Baume à Lèvres Lip Balm


Men’s Folio says: “I like it because it’s lightweight and moisturises the lips. Even though it’s a tinted lip balm, the texture is fairly matte, so your lips don’t end up looking greasy. Extra brownie points for the sleek packaging.”
