With COVID-19 regulations face masks have become required accessories, which can affect your makeup look. If you’re trying to keep your makeup looking fresh under your mask, here are some tips on how to make sure your makeup stays on throughout the day, even under a face mask.
Tip 1: Use a sticky primer
Pass up your moisturising and glowy primers in favour of a sticker consistency. A strong-hold primer will help grip onto the foundation and make it last longer.
Tip 2: Use a brush to apply foundation
A brush deposits a lot more product than a beauty sponge, which will soak up most of the product and result in a thinner coverage. Remember, you want as much coverage so that it will last longer. A thin layer is more likely to wipe onto your mask. After using a brush, you can go in with a dry sponge to even out the finish and remove brush strokes. This also helps to press the product into your skin and make it last longer.
Tip 3: Set your makeup with a translucent powder
Setting your foundation with a translucent powder will help firm it up and remove some of the moisture that makes it easy for it to wipe off. It essentially acts as a barrier locking that moisture in. A translucent powder won’t affect the colour of your foundation and also helps to mattify your skin.
Tip 3: Using a setting spray
A setting spray will help keep your makeup intact while also hydrating the skin which will help you avoid flaking and caking. A setting spray finishes your makeup look and will help your makeup last longer.
