I'm wondering if any major stores in the U.S. sell make-up that is designed for men. I know I could find men's lines for sale online, but I'd rather look at it and try it in person.

Thanks.

One would think that in major metro areas the bigger stores might have something?
I was just in STL, am going back there on Tuesday, will have to pop into the stores to see....(any excuse to shop, lol)
Will report back.

Actually, they do. You're just not aware of it. Plenty of guys want to cover up bags under their eyes, for example, without having cosmetic surgery.

Only the super fabulous gay guys like Adam Lambert and Johnny Weir. Normal guys do not wear make up. That is why you will NOT find a makeup counter for MEN at Macys, Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus. I havent seen a "MAC for Men" store open up in any of the local malls either.

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

I would be extremely surprised if you could find a line of cosmetics for men in a major dept store as I imagine that it would not be profitable for them.

I would highly recommend Sephora. Every location I have ever been in have men and women working there. One of the male associates may be able to help you. They have a very large selection. Here is the men's page on their website which does have "Complexion Enhancers" which seems to be what you're seeking: http://sephora.com/browse/section.jhtml?categoryId=C7790

Looks like your closest location is in Temecula.

Dark circles are fairly easy to cover with makeup, but bags and puffiness don't camouflage as easily. Have you tried treating treating the area with creams to lessen the bags rather than just cover them?

If you do need to go the makeup route, the concealer needs to neutralize. So if your circles are purple choose a yellow base, more blue, than use orange base. With all that confusion a good makeup person is essential, MAC and Sepora would be my choices.

I also haven't seen any lines specifically for men but Dept. stores generally have people that could help with the lines available. I know Macy's, at least, has men that "man" the counters also and I've seen them wearing cosmetics.
