We will all agree that makeup is one of the most artistic forms of self expression. From accentuating facial features to turning a face into something radically different, the power makeup has given us to be who we feel like we are remains unmatched. Why, then, must we shy away from using one of the most appealing aspect of our appearance with makeup? Flaunting your beard using makeup is a thing, peeps, and this guy has perfected it!
Zak Taylor has amassed over a hundred thousand followers on TikTok, and over forty thousand on Instagram. The reason? This makeup artist blends his beard with his makeup so perfectly that they match. The beard is never an obstacle for Zak, but just another canvas where he can display his art.
Using techniques such as contouring, eyebrow filling and more, Zak prepares his face and beard to go together. Sometimes, the dimensions of the face are enhanced to fit in with his beard length and hair style; many times, he uses an angle brush.
What we love the most about Zac’s videos is the fact that he uses his beard to amplify the look he is carrying, using accessories and more to match with his style.
For years, men and women both shaved their facial hair for makeup to sit better and look even. A little pop here and there would perhaps include colourful eye shadow and a vibrant lipstick. As society grew more accepting of the rebellious and the unconventional, this started to change. The use of beard in makeuo was at once revolutionary and pleasing. Not only were artists accomodating the facial hair they already possessed, some even created them using makeup. Zak Taylor’s aesthetic beard makeup has prompted other artists to try their hands at the same; the beard is now not seperate from the face or from identity, but a customary part of.
