1. Invest in a quality primer and setting spray
The annoying thing about face masks (other than the difficulty breathing) is that they rub on the bottom half of your face, which can really affect any face makeup you’re wearing. One option is to only do half your face (after all, technically you won’t be taking off the mask in public, but you might end up looking a little crazy if you do), but we recommend investing in a high-quality primer and setting spray to prevent transfer of your makeup. This way, you will stay put with the mask on.
2. Go light on the foundation
Similarly, try not to go heavy with your foundation, concealer, etc. because the more you have on, the more there is to rub off and we don’t want that. Plus, the mask will generate heat, causing you to sweat more, which can also cause heavy makeup to run. In light of all this, opt for a lightweight foundation or even a BB cream!
3. Play up your eyes
You might not feel like doing a whole smoky eye or a glitter lid, but have fun with your eye makeup. After all, your eyes will be the focal point of your face! Try out a winged cat eye, white eyeliner on your waterline or some colored mascara to make your eyes pop! And don’t forget those brows! Make sure they are well-groomed and frame your face nicely!
