How to Mask Proof Your Makeup

Wearing masks is the new normal and does that prevents you from wearing your makeup? Are you afraid of getting it smudge all over because of the mask? Fret not, there is actually ways for you to make sure that it doesn’t happen.

Firstly, you’ll need a good primer to hold your foundation in place. Using a primer will allow your foundation to go on smoother and also stay longer. A good technique will be to apply the primer using your fingers (clean fingers, of course!)

Secondly, opt for long wear foundations. They are sweat-proof, water-resistant, safe from smudges – all the characteristics that we want for make-prove makeup. Remember to pick a long-wearing foundation based on your skin type too. Another tip is to apply your foundation using a beauty sponge instead of your fingers or brushes. This will set the foundation in place more firmly.

Thirdly, after you’re done with your base, set it with powder – setting powder. This will lock all your liquid or cream base products in place. A loose setting powder would do the trick. It helps to absorb the excess oils on you face.

Fourthly, since wearing a mask basically covers half of your face, focus on your eyes. You can experiment with bold eye looks to attract attention to your eyes. Use the most dramatic mascara you have or thicken up that eyeliner because you want the attention on your eyes. Also, don’t forget your brows! Make sure they’re on fleek.
