It’s all gone very dark for the boys. From skincare to fashion, the powerful, yet elegant colour is being embraced everywhere this month. So, we share with you a few items just for the gents to keep you going this coming month.
Starting with skincare take time to care for your skin after the effects of late nights and long days because we all know that they take a toll on our faces. Blaq Hydrogel Mask is the perfect way to de-puff and detox the eyes, to get back to looking energetic and alert again.
For flawless happy skin minus blackheads try the activated charcoal mask, targeting toxins and drawing the impurities for fresh, pore-less skin.
To finish creating the perfect canvas, the beauty pro self-foaming sheet mask creates bubbles on the skin which works deep in the pores to cleanse the skin from impurities. With Activated Charcoal and a rich AHA complex created from Lime, Lemon, Apple, Orange and Grapefruit the Detoxifying mask is also suitable for acne prone skin while refining the pores and reducing oil
After all that cleaning you may want to think about preening. Start with Tweezerman’s moustache scissors and comb. Sharp, straight tools for precise trimming, leaving one feeling well groomed. Continue with the essential grooming kit – must have high quality tools great for stubble, ingrown hairs, fine brow and facial hair, and keeping hands attractively well-groomed. Set includes a tweezer, facial hair scissors, fingernail clipper and a multi-use nail tool – the perfect way to stay well groomed.
Stay wrapped in black this coming season, as John Smedley launches their ‘The Black Sheep x John Smedley’ for Autumn/Winter 2017, creating a fine blend of natural fibres and infusing their renowned extra fine merino wool. Sourced from black sheep, the wool, which cannot be dyed, results in a blend of orange, brown, charcoal and black shades, which when blended with raw natural fibres, adds an element of uniqueness to each individual sweater.
Now that you are cosy, settle with Faye Dowling’s ‘The Book of Black’. An exploration of gothic visual culture, celebrating the dark aesthetics, providing a narrative exploring the alternative artists, and modern day iconography from skulls, crosses and other religious representations of the modern day underworld.
End your perfect night to Johny Dar’s ‘Be Free’ from his debut album ‘Dardelica’, a three and a half minute visual journey in black and white, exploring the human capacity for creativity and growth.
