GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

After years of being a makeup artist for many big celebrities, Michele Probst said her new company will do the unthinkable - put cosmetics on men.

She created Menaji - a line of powders, creams and gels that are made to hide blemishes, dark eye circles and razor burn for guys.

"Our message for men is that this product is not to look pretty, but for you to look healthy," Probst explained. "Take care of your skin."

When one places an order on the Menaji website, it arrives in a wooden cigar box that is full of items that are marketed and described with more "manly" terms.

Instead of using powder, guys use "Anti-Shine." Instead of concealer, Menaji calls it "Camo."

"It is here to make men feel confident and take care of themselves when they go out in public," Probst said. 

Probst said guys should really consider looking their best when out in the professional world because they are up against younger guys with younger skin and women who already take good care of their skin.

Not only can you purchase Menaji on their website, it is now available in nationwide retail stores like Nordstrom.
