Makeup for Your Mask

Since we’re currently in a pandemic, masks are required when we go out to public places. Unfortunately, this means that both your mouth and nose are covered, which makes it hard to do your makeup since it often comes off. However, that doesn’t mean you should give up. There are many steps in your routine that you can still do without staining your mask with makeup.

  1. 1. Focus on Your Eyes!

    Since the mask isn’t going to cover your eyes, this is the main point of your face you should focus on. Everyone will be looking at your eyes since they’re the first thing you notice on someone’s face, even more now than ever, so you want to make them look the best that they can. Use eyeshadow colors that will make your eyes pop so they will really grab people’s attention, for example, I have blue eyes and often use pink eyeshadow, and purple eyeshadow looks great with green eyes. You can also do a more bold or intricate look now that you don’t have to worry about half your face. It’s time to show off your winged eyeliner or your great blending skills. If you really like your eyes and want them to stand out, this is the perfect time for you!

  2. 2. Pay Attention to Your Eyebrows

    The second part of your face that people will probably be looking at the most is your eyebrows. Since they’re right above your eyes and they can shape your whole face you want to make sure they look good. There are many different ways you can fill in your eyebrows such as using a pencil or gel but make sure you’re being careful and really creating an eyebrow shape that works well for you. Even if you’re the type of person who just needs to brush them out to get the shape they need, make sure you’re doing that and not just leaving them messy. Also, make sure you’re keeping your eyebrows groomed whether that may be through waxing or threading, this will create the shape you want your eyebrows to be.

  3. 3. Continue to Wear Foundation & Concealer

    Understandably, it’s annoying to do your foundation and concealer because it just transfers onto your mask. If you’re going somewhere that you won’t be taking off your mask until you’re in the car or back home, you can still put these items on the places that won’t be covered. When you take your mask off it might look a little strange but if you’re the only person seeing it then it doesn’t really matter. You can still make your skin look really nice and cover anything you might consider necessary and you won’t ruin your mask.

  4. 4. Take Care of Your Skin

    A lot of people have been struggling with breakouts from wearing their masks all the time. Make sure you’re washing your face correctly and with products that are meant for your skin type, don’t just use makeup wipes! Keep your skin moisturized and even do face masks that will help your skin with whatever the problem is. There may be a few more steps added to your routine but it will keep your skin healthy and looking nice.

Don’t give up on your appearance because there is something covering half your face! Work around it and create a nice look that will leave people thinking you did your whole makeup routine instead of only half.
