“With Very Good Light, [David Yi] hopes to redefine masculinity and to redefine men’s beauty. The timing may be right.”


“Very Good Light … has stories about redefining masculinity, faking perfect skin (BB cream is required), and, our personal favorite, how you’re parting your hair all wrong.”


“Yi is part of a growing movement of men’s beauty influencers who, along with brands seeking to tap an emerging market of male consumers, are aiming to normalize men experimenting in beauty practices oft relegated to women.”


Very Good Light does not cater to just one “type” of man. David explains, ‘We don’t have to sell it out as an ‘inclusive’ and ‘woke’ brand. We want that to exude through our site and the content we produce.’

“Though this site seems to be a bold step into the unknown, it’s filling a niche that was begging to be occupied. Don’t assume that Very Good Light is just GQ for the younger set, as it aims to be more inclusive and not just for your average manly man.”

“Very Good Light, can be a safe space for young men to learn about practicing self-care and love, lessons my mother instilled in me. It’s this belief that beauty is more than skin deep that inspires me every day to educate through daily posts on the website.”

With articles ranging from bronzing tutorials to essays about feeling comfortable in BB creams, there are tips for all kinds of men out there.”


“The boy beauty movement is a movement; it’s not just a trend; it’s not just a niche culture,” Yi said. “This movement is only getting bigger, and 2017 is the year it’s going to explode.”
