Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Shawne Merriman
For those of you football fans out there, you probably know #56 as the San Diego Chargers’ Hitman as Mr. “Lights Out,” one of the most ruthless and feared outside linebackers in the NFL. Well let me tell you…it was “LIGHTS ON” with this very down to Earth Pro Bowler while we were on the set for SET magazine’s editorial photo shoot with photographer Zach Cordner.
Now you may have heard a lot about Merriman the player, but did you know about Shawne the “supermodel?
As makeup artists, we have the opportunity to work with people from many different professions, athletes included. While most players are a little scared to do things that are “out of the box” so to speak, I was quite impressed with how Shawne let those of us on the style team to do our jobs and be creative! That team was led by his barber Rahmel, wardrobe specialists Charley Altuna and Jany, and on men’s grooming? Yours Truly of course!
How can you as a man (or ladies, for your men out there) take better care of yourself from a grooming perspective? Well, here are a few simple things men should do to keep themselves up. For starters, a fresh haircut and shave are essential. A good cleansing of the skin followed by the right face moisturizer and body lotion, are next in line. Please don’t forget chapstick/lip balm. And to top it off, have (or develop) a great sense of style!
If you cover these basic things, you will see any man developing a ruthless sense of confidence! Although it may have taken us a couple of hours to get Shawne Merriman for a shoot, guys, it will only takes 10-15 minutes a day to look and feel your best!
