Meet Maybelline's First Male Ambassador, Manny MUA

Make-up isn't just for girls.

People Magazine

As you know, make-up has been a dual gender thing since the times of French monarchy, and soon died down. But what you didn't know is that make-up brands are starting to hire men as the face of beauty products. Some of the male beauty vloggers create looks that wouldn't even look the same on me if I tried them. How awesome is that? Make-up is starting to grow into an item of gender equality. But one other reason why some beauty brands are bringing on men as ambassadors is because they are different than the other ambassadors. They're not just men; they are men who inspire. They are men who are creating an outlet for others who share the same interest as them.

Below is the ad for Maybelline featuring Manny MUA and Makeupshayla.

We were all surprised when CoverGirl brought on James Charles as one of the faces of CoverGirl. But when we heard that Manny MUA became on of the stars of Maybelline's add campaigns, our excitement went through the roof!

Manny stated that "Being an influencer is cool, because you get to be in other people's homes. Someone was watching you, hopefully inspired by you, and you hear so many stories that they've been inspired by because of you."

If you don't know who Manny MUA is, you should look him up on YouTube and watch some of his amazing tutorials. I personally love the "Get Ready with Me" videos with Jeffree Star. 'Cause girl, those liquid lip sticks are LIFE. But back to Manny: It is amazing that we have another man be the face of an amazing beauty brand. What's next? Bretman Rock becoming the face of Revlon? That would be a crazy domino effect.

But guys, make-up isn't just for girls. Why are there gender stereotypes that say one thing is for girls and the other is for boys? Who said boys can wear make-up? Maybe that one hater sitting in the corner, but whatever.

Can I say one thing? Guys do their make-up way better than I can. That's kind of a fact for most of our thoughts on this. However, how many guys do you know who like make-up? None? Or maybe one? The reason you don't know that many is because they are scared of being judged for liking something that is seen as something only girls are into.

Manny MUA, Bretman Rock, James Charles, and Jeffree Star are paving the way for other male individuals to embrace what they love and to be confident about it.

Our society needs to be more accepting of those who have an interest in things that society doesn't see as their gender norm. These amazing individuals are definitely paving the way for those who watch them on YouTube.

In the end, Manny MUA is life and a BOSS.
