The global pandemic has completely changed how we go about our daily lives. Due to preventive measures, everyone has adapted to staying at home. If you need a confidence boost during these strange times, focusing on familiar routines like putting on makeup can be helpful.
It can be challenging to maintain a mask-proof makeup look throughout the day, though. Here are five makeup tips you can apply during the new normal!
It’s now more convenient to shop makeup products online and use virtual try-on tools, which let you swatch products and choose the perfect shade or texture.
Whether it’s eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, or another makeup product, you can try them on and shop from the comfort of your home. In fact, these virtual tools don’t just apply solely to makeup products but also hair products.
Always prioritize your skincare.
The pandemic has been a game-changer in the beauty industry, as more people have started prioritizing their skincare routine. Maintaining one is an effective way to get healthier, glowing skin.
This also goes for after periods of wearing masks and makeup products. A routine with proper makeup removal, cleansing, and moisturizing can work great for combatting any clogged pores or blemishes.
Opt for long-wear makeup.
Mask-proof makeup can be challenging to achieve, making it essential to choose cosmetic products that can last the entire day. When applying makeup, applying your makeup in the appropriate order can help with the longevity of your look.
Emphasize your eyes.
When you’re wearing a mask, your eyes are your most prominent and visible feature. It only makes sense to emphasize your eyes! One way to emphasize the eyes is by giving your eyebrows a boost with microblading. You can do this at home too! Check out how to get a microbladed eyebrow look at home.
Don’t hesitate to go bold with your eye makeup. Try applying eyeliner, eyeshadow, or mascara. You could also experiment with different eye makeup looks with a smokey eye look perfectly with a sharp cat-eye.
Avoid touching your face.
When you’re wearing a mask and makeup at the same time, avoid touching your face as much as possible to make your makeup look last longer. If you’re in a humid environment, a setting spray can be helpful to keep your makeup in place. You also want to avoid removing and putting on your mask too many times, as this can smudge your foundation.
Beauty in the New Normal
Whether you’re still staying at home or already safely going out, it’s still possible to look and feel beautiful! Focusing on your skincare and adjusting how you apply makeup can go a long way.
