War Paint’s founder, Danny Gray, started using makeup at the age of 14 when he borrowed his sister’s concealer to cover his teenage spots, and recognised the power of makeup products to boost confidence.

In 2018, Danny founded War Paint, a game-changing makeup range designed for men. He is also an advocate for mental health having suffered with body dysmorphia for most of his adult life.

"I hope it will give guys who are new to makeup the confidence and knowledge to apply makeup that helps them feel good. It covers everything you need to know to get started with makeup from the importance of SPF, to concealer tips that hide a hangover”.
