The French fashion and beauty house intends to address changing standards regarding masculinity, especially in Asia, with the launch of its first-ever dedicated line of makeup for men.

At its launch, the ’Boy de Chanel’ makeup line is focused on three basics:

  • A tinted foundation fluid, available in four shades, which is designed to disguise imperfections in a natural-looking manner;
  • An almost-invisible lip balm that will protect and hydrate;
  • And an eyebrow pencil that also comes in four shades.

While representing only a small fraction of the market, men’s makeup is a growing trend around the world, especially in some Asian markets such as Korea and China.

The products will go on sale from September 1 in South Korea, on the international market via www.chanel.com from November 2018, and in Chanel stores worldwide from January 2018.
