‘Month of Makeup’ – raising money for mental health

Besi Besemar March 1, 2018

Every day in May, Marc Edwards will apply his face makeup differently, anything from his favourite cartoon character to a Zombie.

He is undertaking the venture ‘Month of Makeup’ to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the Brighton based mental health group, MenTalk Health (MTH), who are currently working towards achieving charity status.

Marc says: “Join Davey, Damian and their friends at MTH, who between them have a colourful history of mental health issues, on a journey to find humour in some of their darkest moments while they try to get men talking about their own mental health. Their work is incredible and something very close to my heart.”

If there is a character or person you would like Marc to recreate (within reason!) email him at and for a small donation, he’ll see what he can do!

There will also be an opportunity for companies, organisations, artists, and most (!) businesses to “RENT HIS FACE” for a day.

What better way to promote your business than having your company LOGO re-created on his face as he goes about his day-to-day life (work and play) in Brighton and further afield.  All his social media posts will feature your logo too!

Every morning Marc will post photos of ‘the days look’ and will be running videos on Facebook/Instagram live sessions and tutorials throughout the day.

All money raised goes to support the work of MenTalkHealth.
