If pretty much all your make-up is rubbing off on your mask, then you need to read what we've got to say.
With face masks now being the latest edition of items to have with you when perform the wallet, keys and phone dance upon leaving the house, the beauty world has exploded with tutorials on how best to adapt our make-up to meet the demands of this new accessory.
Stick it with a primer
YouTuber legend Manny MUA recommends using a primer as a non-negotiable first step. It ideally needs to be as sticky as possible to maximise longevity. His primer of choice was MILK Makeup's Hydro Grip Primer, but any longwearing primer will do, just make sure to use one.
If you can, keep it light
As the weather continues to stay warm, you're no doubt wearing a lighter more breathable base, which is perfect for mask-wearing, where air becomes trapped behind the mask leading to hot and humid conditions. Save yourself (and your skin) some stress and opt for an effective yet light base instead of a full coverage foundation. The Bali Body BB Cream gives you maximum glow, evenness and even has SPF 15. Enriched with green tea, hyaluronic acid, and marine collagen, it will do the most for your skin too.
Ready, get set, bake
Don't be fooled into thinking that just because you have a lighter base that's all you need. Powder is a face mask make-up essential and you can either choose to layer it up and 'bake' (as the pros call it) or simply press a fine layer all over into the skin. The general rule of thumb is with more powder comes with more longevity so adjust to your taste.
Spritz and go glow
To bring back the glow and stop your skin looking even more mask like, add a spritz of a setting spray of your choice. We like ICONIC London Prep-Set-Glow for the ultimate holiday skin in a bottle.
