Fashion traditionally hasn’t been the easiest industry to break into. But, because of the rise of the digital marketplace, entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds now have a much better chance of making their mark. 

Fashion traditionally hasn’t been the easiest industry to break into. But, because of the rise of the digital marketplace, entrepreneurs from a variety of backgrounds now have a much better chance of making their mark. 

However, starting a men’s fashion brand still involves a considerable amount of research and planning. If your current vision hasn’t progressed beyond the ideation stage, this blog can help. Discover how to start a business in the fashion industry:

Invest in technology

Starting a men’s fashion brand without being backed by the right technology will leave you at a significant disadvantage. In 2022, almost every business is relying on software to improve efficiency and accuracy. Some of the ways they are doing this include:

VAT Software: As a result of MTD, all businesses with an annual turnover of over £85,000 must submit their tax return digitally, which requires the use of accredited VAT softwareSocial Media Scheduling: Save time and never miss a post by creating social media content ahead of time in batches and planning your upload calendar. A tool like Sprout can help. Inventory Management System: Keep track of your stock levels and streamline your supply chain. An IMS can alert you when products are running low and automatically order new materials.Stick to a calendar: You need to keep to schedules and timings to keep your business running smoothly. “Being disciplined and planning ahead may seem a strain at first, but building it into a hobby, then a lifelong habit can build up incredibly beneficial effects over time,” says fitness mogul and managing director Damo. “Good discipline will give you both the business you want, and the life you really want. Get a calendar app and live by it.”

Create a business plan

Every small business needs a clear and detailed plan that encompasses finances, a growth strategy, marketing tactics and brand development. This means deciding on a business model, generating funds and finding investors, as well as familiarising yourself with different types of liability insurance and any retail business licences you might need.

You will need to have an in-depth understanding of both the internal processes of running your fashion business, as well as the persona you will present to your customers. Will you have designs created in-house, or cultivate other designs into your own style? Where will you pitch your price points? This is also a good time to consider how you can make your fashion line more sustainable and ethical, as these are key selling points across the industry in 2022. 

Design and manufacture your collection

Even if you have already produced designs for clothing on paper, it’s important to create digital sketches to make the manufacturing process smoother. You can do this with programs such as Adobe Illustrator, C-Design Fashion or Browzwear.

Next, you will need to compile a tech pack or specification sheets that will allow manufacturers to make the clothes exactly how you envisioned them. Tech packs typically include details like measurements, colours, care instructions and materials.

Launch an online shop

You have the option of solely selling your men’s fashion line on your own website or pitching to retailers as well. Having your own store gives you more control over your marketing and collections, but larger retailers can help you to reach a much wider range of customers.

There are lots of website builders such as Shopify, Wix or Squarespace that are equipped with eCommerce

How to Recreate Liza Soberano’s 2024 SAG Awards Look Using Filipino Beauty Brands

Still reeling from Liza Soberano’s glam look at the SAG Awards? MEGA lists down the makeup products from Filipino brands that have similar shades and finishes

While dressed in a splendid Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2024 ensemble and ornamented with Le Vian Jewelry, Liza Soberano cemented her place in Hollywood with her first-ever attendance of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. From her charming red carpet interviews to her GLAMbot appearance, it’s safe to say that the actress made an impact, with help from wardrobe stylist Maeve Reilly, makeup artist Melissa Hernandez, and hairstylist Renz Pangilinan. If you’re still as enamored by Liza’s glam look as we are, here are the details you need to know to recreate it.

Hollywood glamor

Notably, Melissa Hernandez is a makeup artist under The Wall Group who routinely works with Hollywood celebrities, like Olivia Rodrigo and Sydney Sweeney. For the Lisa Frankenstein actress, the makeup artist opted for a soft glam look that would subtly enhance Liza’s natural beauty. She also revealed in an Instagram post that she used Maybelline products to achieve it. If you don’t have the actual Maybelline products in hand, we also listed alternatives from Filipino makeup brands.

First Base

For Liza’s base, blush, bronzer, and highlight, Melissa used the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in 310, Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Medium, Cheek Heat in Fuchsia Spark, Lasting Fix Banana Powder, City Bronzer in Medium, and Master Chrome in Molten Gold.

For Filipino makeup, to perfect your complexion and add an alluring flush, look to Teviant Beauty’s The Ultimate Skin Master Foundation in Trench, Lucky Beauty’s Ethereal Liquid Pigment in Poppy, and Issy’s Active Concealer in MW2.

NEW BASE ALT 1
Filipino beauty brands have great formulations that work best in our climate

For powder contour, loose powder, and highlight, check out Vice Cosmetics’ Aura So Sculpted in Toasty Cocoa, BarenBliss’s Soul-Matte Loose Powder in Medium Mango Sorbet, and Strokes Cosmetics’ Face Flash in Gold Rush.

BASE 2 ALT NEW
Cream-to-powder formulas also work best if you want a long-lasting but natural finish

Eye-To-Eye

As for Liza’s eye makeup, Melissa used The City Mini eyeshadow palette in Rooftop Bronzes, Master Precise liquid eyeliner in Brown, and The Falsies Lash Lift mascara.

For local alternatives, you can look to DAZZLE ME’s World Traveler Eyeshadow Palette in Arabian Nights for the gorgeous brown shades and gold shimmers, plus Happy Skin’s Generation Happy Skin Pretty Easy Budge-Proof Liquid Eyeliner in Brown and blk Cosmetics’s Daydream False Lash Waterproof Mascara to enhance your eyes.

When putting on makeup for a formal event, we recommend using water-proof and budge-proof products to ensure that they will last all night

Kiss and Tell

To complete the makeup look, she then applied Color Sensational in Magnetic Mauve to line her lips and the Super Stay Ink Crayon Lipstick in Achieve It All. Meanwhile, Liza’s eyebrows were kept natural-looking and brushed up, so you can use whatever products you like to tame your own into shape.

For a similar-looking result to Liza’s lip look at the SAG Awards, you can check out GRWM Cosmetics’ Lip Contour in Ann and Happy Skin’s Off Duty Lip Cloud Matte Lipstick in Honeymoon Glow. Both have matte finishes and result in a pinkish-mauve hue.

NEW LIPS ALT 1
Don’t forget to line your lips before putting on lipstick to avoid it from smearing

Altogether, the products worked to make Liza ready to face the flashing lights and shutters of the cameras on the red carpet. These particular products are also effective yet uncomplicated to use, so anyone from beginners to beauty experts can rely on them to look good.

Expert Tips

That said, it’s important to remember that since they are mattifying, it’s best to prep your skin with moisturizing products to make sure the products cling to the skin properly. And since the desired effect is a soft and subtle glam, it’s best to use as little product as possible. Go easy on the cream product and blend until your complexion looks flawless and apply the powder products where you need them most.

Like Liza, apply your bronzer on the hollows of your cheeks, your jawline, and close to your hairline to add some depth and dimension to your face. For a subtle enhancement, the metallic highlighter was also kept to the high points of Liza’s face and applied with a light hand, so it’s best to do the same on your cheeks, inner corners, brow bone, and nose. The star of this look is the soft brown cat eye, light matte eyeshadow, and matte lips.

This is an excerpt from MEGA March 2024 Main Beauty story.

With a profile that has been turning heads since the ’90s, Angel Aquino continues to be a timeless-beauty muse to many. Her secret? Embracing a skin-first beauty philosophy. “Clean skin is my best makeup,” she tells MEGA. “If I have good skin, I feel confident and I don’t have to put so much makeup on. I just like to keep it clean, hydrated, and protected, and then I’m ready.”

As for the key to a youthful gaze? One of her most trusted makeup artists, Muriel Vega Perez, explained “The skin around the eyes is more delicate than in other areas of your face and body—the exact reason why it needs more care.” He continues, “Application of non-comedogenic under eye creams and hydrating masks can benefit many. Apart from that, the right treatment can be more face-changing.”

The key to positive aging? “Just try to tiptoe your way to aging, handle it as graciously and gracefully as you can,” Angel Aquino says. “Yes, aging is inevitable. But be mindful enough to tell yourself that what truly matters are the lives that you are going to touch today, the differences that you can make, and if you can make somebody smile and feel good today. That’s what you should count and not the years that go by.”

The mind-skin connection

Beyond the right formulas and techniques, Angel Aquino reminds everyone that a good beauty mindset can just be as transformative

The skin often reflects what’s going on below the surface, like a canvas that communicates the intricacies of our mental well-being. “I used to take myself too seriously and I decided—f*ck it!” Angel confesses. “I just want to have fun, I want to know fun, I want to live fun, and I guess that translates to my overall aura—it becomes more youthful. Overall, it’s the mindset.”
