Make Your Makeup Last Under Your Mask
If you had asked us this time last year, we would have never thought we’d be writing about how to ‘mask-proof’ a makeup look, but here we are… 2020 has been a weird year! Nevertheless, trying to keep your makeup in place under your mask has become a hot topic and a real struggle for a lot of people and we want to help you!
Lauren, our Senior Brow and Makeup Artist, has come up with a fool-proof step by step guide on how to mask-proof your makeup all day long. Read on to find out how…
Prep your skin with Weightless Moisture, this contains a hydrating complex which will help skin retain its moisture. It’s also enhanced with watermelon fruit extract to help lock in moisture for 24 hours.
Apply Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer under your eyes and to your eyelids, blending out fully. Boi-ing Cakeless is a lightweight full coverage liquid concealer that hides it all, from dark circles and redness to blemishes and discolouration.
Define your brows with Precisely, My Brow Pencil that gives you believable hair-like strokes and stays put for 12 hours.
Add Gimme Brow+ for natural-looking fullness. This eyebrow gel contains tint that adheres to skin & hair, creating the effect of fuller, thicker brows.
Using the Big Beautiful Eyes Eyeshadow Palette, apply your base shade of choice all over your eyelid in circular motions up towards the brow bone.
Add a mid-tone to the crease of your eyelid and along your bottom lash line.
Use the deep matte brown shade to darken the ‘V’ at the outer of your eye and blend up and out towards the end of the brow. Apply that same dark matte brown shade to your lower lash line and smoke out.
Pat a shimmer shade to the centre of your eyelid using your finger.
Apply Roller Liner along the lash line creating a feline flick.
For maximum impact apply lashings of They’re Real! Lash Lengthening Mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Define your brows further by cutting under them using Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer.
Prep the skin with POREfessional Face Primer, a silky, lightweight balm that will keep the skin matte and reduce the appearance of pores.
Brighten your complexion with Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation, blending with either a brush or a sponge.
Swipe Hoola Matte Bronzer in a figure of three along your forehead, to the hollows of your cheeks and under your jawline. This will add warmth to your complexion and structure to your face.
Add a touch of ChaCha Tint to your cheeks and lips.
Add a soft focused highlight with Watt’s Up! creamy rose gold highlighter to the high points of your cheekbones.
Set any areas you’ve applied concealer to with Dr Feelgood Silky Mattifying Powder.
Put your mask on and you’re ready for the day!
