In what seemed like one day the whole world changed and we have all had to adapt to a new way of life, dressing and general operations.
No doubt this has spilled over into the makeup world and a lot of us have had to tweak our routines and product selections when we choose to get dolled up.
Here are some tips to help your makeup application remain flawless even when you have to wear a mask.
LIGHT LAYERS OF PRODUCT.
This application technique is a favorite for creating flawless, non-cakey makeup. Never go in with a large amount of any product but apply thin layers, letting it absorb into the skin for a minute then adding the next layer. Primer + Foundation + Concealer + Product. The goal is to achieve full coverage with minimal product.
OPT FOR LONGWEAR FORMULAS.
Foundation, lipstick, and concealer are all cosmetics that come in long-wear formulas. We want to avoid our masterpiece moving about or smudging whenever possible.
POWDER IS YOUR FRIEND.
Do not shy away from foundation powders at a time like these. Admittedly in ordinary circumstances we love translucent powder to set our makeup, however we need a little more coverage when wearing a full face of makeup under a mask.
MATTE LONGWEAR SETTING SPRAY.
Setting spray serves to take away some of that powdery look, while locking in your makeup. Dewy sprays and mists will not do the trick when you have to take your mask on and off throughout your day, due to the semi emollient finish. Matte, long-wear sprays have a greater sealing quality to them that will not budge.
