“It’s a natural partnership considering MËNAJI is the first men’s skincare line to introduce the best, most cutting-edge products specific to a man’s needs while Barneys is the established luxury retailer known for featuring vanguard indie brands. We’ve been fortunate to be recognized by premium retailers who understand the strides MËNAJI has made in this niche industry,” says Pamela Viglielmo, President of MËNAJI Worldwide.

Did You Know That URBAN CAMO Is a Vegan and Cruelty-Free Concealer For Men?

Cruelty Free Makeup For Men

Our iconic URBAN CAMOUFLAGE® is the first concealer for men, available in multiple shades and popular among celebrities, models, professionals and regular guys since 2000. But did you know that our popular CAMO is also vegan, in that it doesn’t contain animal products AND has also never been tested on animals? Yes, MENAJI’s broad range of skin tone true concealers are winners ….. again!

The secret’s out. Now you know that your secret weapon to covering up blemishes, dark eye circles and redness is also better for the environment and helps minimize your carbon footprint.  As the best known brand of men’s undetectable cosmetics and problem-solving grooming products, MENAJI is proud to be a company which shares a commitment to saving animals as well as the planet.

Food for Thought.  Did you also know that Vegan + cruelty-free products don’t just save animals—they can help people, too. Since it takes tons of crops and water to raise farmed animals, a shift to less animal-intense consumption (across multiple sectors), can be very helpful as we all look to help protect the environment.

So what makes MENAJI Urban Camouflage® a winner?  Made from fruit and plant extracts, essential oils, and Vitamin E, our CAMO Concealer is formulated to withstand the higher oil production of men’s skin while remaining free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, lanolin, petrolatum, and phthalates. Simple and easy to use, you can create a flawless look while also maintaining healthy skin. When you shop for our CAMO Concealer, you can do so with added confidence of knowing that you are helping others and yourself – both inside and out, since it’s VEGAN and Cruelty Free!

Innovative designer blends traditional with modern twist, chooses iconic men’s grooming brand

MENAJI was back in NYC with top designer Feng Chen Wang at New York Men’s Fashion Week. Creators of the first grooming line to incorporate both healthy skincare and cosmetics for men (inclusive of the iconic Urban Camouflage® corrective concealer and Hi-Def HDPV pressed powder), MENAJI has been the #1 choice for male celebrities, models and athletes since 2000. Recently MENAJI attracted the attention of the UK-based Chinese designer Feng Chen Wang, who chose the top selling men’s skincare line for her bold and experimental SS’19 NYFW Men’s collection.

Ms. Wang’s show was billed as an “exploration in human connection.” As she continues to break new ground with bold, innovative design for technical and functional outerwear, MENAJI helped complete her dynamic vision. Colorful fabrics and futuristic accessories combined to create a visual sensation when worn by a broad spectrum of male models – a perfect fit for MENAJI’s all inclusive color palette. Feng Chen Wang’s recent collaboration with iconic male brands such as Levis, Converse, and NIKE (her models walked this show in cool over-the-top Converse sneakers) introduce a modern twist to classic male accessories to deliver a very wearable look.

Pamela Viglielmo, President of MENAJI, says, “MENAJI products delivered a simple, clean canvas which captured the essence of Feng Chen Wang’s energetic, modern fashion design. Her collection represents a man who is whole in mind and body, comfortable with self expression, and open to the future of men’s fashion. MENAJI’s broad color palette provides easy to wear men’s makeup in multiple shades, along with grooming and skincare products for today’s male to reveal his inner confidence.”

MENAJI ​is thrilled to work with ​great talent like Feng Chen Wang ​and is already looking forward to New York Men’s Fashion Week​ — ​Winter 2019. As men’s fashion events demand high definition products that deliver a natural look to a diverse audience, MENAJI will continue to help designers express their vision.

How To Use A Concealer for Men

Want to know one of the best kept secrets to looking good and being more confident? Answer: Concealers. They’re easy to use and are undetectable when applied correctly.  You’ll simply look more rested, younger, with healthier skin.  Here are four easy steps to learning how to use concealers, no matter what your age or skin color, or how much sleep you’ve had!

Why is concealer important? Concealers lighten dark circles under eyes, covers redness, breakouts, sun spots, scars, minor blemishes and even softens expression lines. Our CAMO Concealer for Men comes in an easy roll up stick (just like a lip balm), is specially formulated for men’s oilier skin, lasts all day and is effective even under the glare of hot lights – perfect for those in front of the camera or on set.   Your skin will look totally natural whether outdoor or indoors, in photos, videos, etc.

Whether you’re a 20-year-old model or an established businessman, the skin around the eyes is more fragile and often visibly darker than the surrounding skin on everyone’s face. Just a bit of concealer will brighten the face and make you look more rested. Think of concealer as a quick spot treatment.

Choosing a shade? Like other MËNAJI products, our concealer is meant to be undetectable because many men just want to look fresh and awake without the look of “makeup.” In choosing a concealer to lighten dark shadowy skin, choose a shade slightly lighter than your predominant skin tone. Determine this shade by looking at the skin on the inside of your arm and choose a shade that best matches this area. Some men with darker or uneven skin tone may need to blend two shades – one lighter and another closer to the actual skin tone.  If you have a specific skin condition, or are darker in the summer, then you will need more than one shade.

Our shades – Light, Medium, Sand, Olive, Bronze and Deep – are universally designed to match every skin tone, either blended or used alone, and deliver the best results when combined our other products and powders.

But don’t sweat about which shade to choose. Sometimes it takes time. If you need assistance, call us at 800-551-5067, email us and send a photo…we’re always happy to help!

Applying concealer… Apply on a clean and moisturized face, lightly using your ring finger. Don’t rub! Check the under eye area so you know where the darker, shadowy area begins and ends. Only put concealer where you need it. BLEND lightly so that there is no delineation between the area where you have applied your concealer and where you haven’t.  Start with a little, you can always add more.  And, if you think that it is visible, try blending a bit more.  Let us know how it goes…

Tips for Men: How to choose the right shade?

Today, men understand that concealer, tinted moisturizer or powder/foundation can help them look better, .e.g. even out redness, lessen the appearance of imperfections. These products also can help you look more awake, healthy, refreshed and youthful. But if you can’t try the shades in person, how best to choose the right shade for your needs?

The answer is that often there is no single right shade. While your shade depends on your natural skin type, it also depends on what area you are looking to improve, the season, the lighting, time of day, and other factors.  So, to keep it simple, here are a few tips:

Start with a clean slate. First always use a simple cleanser followed by a moisturizer so the skin is prepped to absorb the tinted product.

If you are choosing between two shades, always go for the slightly darker shade. The lighter shade will only make you look older. Just be sure to apply with a light hand and blend really well, especially along the jawline. You can use your fingers, or a sponge to apply;  just remember less is more.

Check the undertone of your skin. When looking at your face, it is hard to see the true shade. So check the inside of your arm. Most people with ivory/beige skin will benefit from a tint with a yellow or olive shade – which adds color and life to the skin and counteracts redness. People with bronze/dark ebony skin should match their undertones more exactly. Because you may have several shades on your face, especially in your cheeks and jawline, you may need to blend two or more shades depending on the darkness of the undertone.

Celebrity make-up artist Barry White who is the go-to-groomer for the likes of LeBron James, and the singer Dave Matthews, explains, “When blending make-up, always come as close as you can to matching your complexion.  Sometimes, it may be best to go a half a shade lighter and then use a little bit darker shade and blend those two together. With the right products, this is easy to do.”

If you have very dark ebony skin, you may benefit from brightening (which is not the same as lightening). What this means is that after you apply the appropriate shade, you blend a lighter shade to the center of your face (from forehead, under eyes, cheeks and top of chin). Shades with an orange, golden base really help to brighten bronze/ebony skin. You can also use a slightly lighter shade powder in the center of your face.

Give it time to absorb. Wait a few minutes to let the product soak in and absorb any redness or discoloration. It will take a moment for your eye to adjust to your skin’s more neutral tone.

Go easy. As with fair to medium toned skin, go easy with the products, don’t use too much. Blonde men especially need to blend sparingly even if your skin is more medium.

Remember, choosing a shade takes time so try to experiment when you’re not in a rush or tired. Given the range of colors, finding your correct shade has never been easier. If you’re still unsure, send us a selfie for a consultation. We’re always happy to help!
