As you venture out into the world or maybe even back to work you’ll see life looks a little different. Now that face masks have become the new must have accessory, our beauty routines need to be adjusted.
Wearing masks for an extended period of time can cause skin irritations like breakouts or redness. A cotton mask will allow your skin to breath better and prevent this. In addition to your normal skincare routine, I recommend incorporating a weekly treatment mask to take care of any issues. If breakouts are occurring try my favorite Glam Glow mask, Supermud to pull out impurities and minimize pores. If you find your skin is more red or irritated try sleeping in the Darphin Vetiver Stress Relief mask.
If you are wearing a mask most of the day don’t forget to put on sunscreen as the final step of your skincare.
For makeup, you can go ahead and skip bronzer and blush as these likely won’t be seen and will just rub off on your mask.
As focus is moved to your eyes, now is the time to have some fun and try something new with your makeup. Try a smokey lash line by layering eyeliner and shadows closest to the root of the lashes like the photo above. Or simply smudge a colorful Marc Jacobs eyeliner with your finger. Whatever you opt to do with your eyeshadow, a lash curler and a good mascara are essential to opening your eyes and therefor adding to their emotive nature.
Perfecting your brows by shaping them with a brow pencil is also essential for framing the face and eyes. If you haven’t been able to get them waxed, clean up any unwanted hairs by applying a concealer to them which will fade out stray hairs.
Lastly store away your stash of lipsticks for now and pick up a hydrating lip balm with a minty flavor. This will come in handy when you are smelling your own breath under your face mask all day- trust me it’s a life saver (just like your mask).
