The Brand That’s Shaking Up The Game In Men’s Beauty
With a mission to reject hyper-masculinity, challenge gender stereotypes and embrace a new era of men’s beauty, Shakeup Cosmetics is a skincare and cosmetics brand with products designed in line with men’s specific skin types and concerns.
Shakeup Cosmetics was founded by twin brothers Shane Carnell-Xu and Jake Xu who since their teenage years, have struggled to find cosmetic products made for men after both suffering from rosacea. After starting out in 2018, Shakeup Cosmetics have developed their own range of self-care products and here’s what they have to offer.
The Pure Beauty Global Awards 2020 finalist, Eye Eye Captain Under Eye Concealer and Moisturiser will cover dark circles, reduce puffiness and even skin tone around the eyes. The metal ball roller applicator also works to cool and massage the skin when applying – perfect for a refresher on those early mornings!
Many of us know that SPF is the number 1 rule of skincare, so with Shakeup’s SPF 25 BB Tinted Moisturiser, you can protect your complexion whilst also gaining some coverage to even skin tones. With vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, peppermint and eucalyptus oil, this product helps covers blemishes and leaving a natural, matte finish.
Let’s not forget the care our lips deserve with the Lip Life To The Full Lip Gel, providing long-term moisturisation for dry sensitive lips. Containing tripeptide, hyaluronic acid and plant-derived ingredients to help reduce fine lines making lips appear plumped and defined. Sign us up!
