If the only the basic then I guess it is the same as female? xD

 

Product usually depends on what kind of skin you have, but basic would be this:

-Foundation

-Concealer (recommended palette concealer if you want to conceal your eyebrow and recolour them back)

-Compact powder/loose powder

-Eyeliner ( either gel, pencil, or liquid, but would recommend pencil for beginner)

-Eyeshadow ( not sure if required for male, but would make your eyes more uh, stand out? Use natural colours like browns)

-Lipstick ( choose nude or pale colour, or you can use concealer instead if want saving/don't want to buy lipstick)

 

I guess you can pretty much skip foundation if you have smooth skin (without acne and all).

 

Welp, uh, hopefully this helps? Good luck buying makeup though, it can be very embarrassing for guys. xDDD

Concealer can be bought at any drugstore. Eg, Watsons, Guardian :D

There are so many brands to choose from. As long as it matches your skin colour or slightly lighter (Y)

Most pharmacies sell Maybelline cosmetics, their concealer is pretty ok. Silkygirl cosmetics is more or less a staple in many pharmacies too.

 

If you are shy ,no worries, there's the option of getting makeup online too - I recommend joining those Lowyat.net sprees selling NYX makeup (you can get them in Sephora also). The downside is you can't actually test whether they can suit your skin tone if you want to get makeup like foundation,or concealer.

 

NYX has a pretty decent nude lipstick(I used NYX Round Lipstick in Honey),and the price is on par with drugstore brands.
