There is no market for it. Makeup companies do not make it, nor to the market it to men.
Wow, rude much?

I've known heterosexual dudes - and yes, I'm quite sure they're not "super fabulous" - to wear makeup if they've got a couple of zits or if they wake up looking like they haven't slept in four days. Big deal.

Anyway, OP, I think lines designed for women will work just fine. Try to stay away from powders for the most part, though.

The Make Up Forever has a good range of colors in their concealers, if that's what you're looking for (I use their Full Cover Concealer):

Make up : Professional Make up, Cosmetics products, Make up Tips

You can purchase it from Sephora, but I don't believe the stores carry all the shades (or at least they didn't used to), but you can order them from Sephora online, if you need to. Be sure to try a shade out in the the store then go outside into the sunlight and check it. The store lighting will not show a match well enough. Also, leave the swatches you try on for a good hour or more--some people's skin oils cause colors to change. You need to make sure you are accounting for this.

If you're talking about foundation, why not just use the stuff for women?
