The face mask is essential to practice in the ongoing pandemic situation. It should be used as an everyday thing as it is going to be needed for a while. And adhering to it, we also need to change some of our habits for going out, including wearing makeup. It may seem impossible to do makeup with such a practice that hides most of your face but is quite achievable.
So come along below as we share some proven tips with you for wearing your eyes best in the current situation:
There is no other look in the world that can top off the smokey and messy eye makeup appearance. Smokey eyes almost always work for any event. And with your face mask on, it is going to get more attention than ever. For this, you can now use your eye shadow stick, the stain of which travels all over the place when you apply to your eyes.
You can take a good dab of it on your eyes and spread nicely. The color for a smokey eye doesn’t always have to be black or dark. You can use a light color as pink and spread it out all over the eye, and it won’t look weird with the face mask but only elegant.
Match Makeup with the Mask
Surgical masks are an old story. These days people are coordinating masks with the color of their clothes and accessories. You can use your eye makeup to create coordination with the mask and make it look better on your face. The resemblance can help you create a party-perfect look. Inversely, using an entirely different but contrasting color from the face mask, you can create a bold and a different look than what the norm is doing. For example, red eye shadow can be paired with a black mask.
Use Tough Products
A face mask that will cover a lot of your face so a nice makeup look can be hard to pull. When the mask moves, it can mess up the makeup around the eyes and cheeks. The foundation, blush-on, and bronzer can get mixed up if the products are lightly applied or are creamy.
You can apply a heavy moisturizer for dry skin to have the makeup stay in place or keep it dry if the skin is oily. Use robust products that don’t melt or move with the movement of the face mask. Use more products around the eyes where the mask ends to make it stay.
Swap to a Stronger Eye Lining Technique
With only the eye part of the face being apparent, it becomes the only part of the face that can be touched. And when the eyes are touched, the part that gets wrecked most is the eyeliner. It can really damage the look once felt, primarily if a pencil was used to apply it.
For this reason, use an angled brush to build the makeup line around the eyes. This can create a prominent look and dramatic touch to the masked face and stays on for a long time even after getting rubbed by the hands. There also won’t be a need for shadow as the winged brush creates a whole eye look.
Bring in Some Art
Why stay behind the trends when you have all the creativity needed to make your face a beautiful canvas? People are using creative skills to embellishing the skin, as most can be seen illustrating their work on their social profiles. A lot of these works are praiseworthy and look great on the surface. So if you have the creative skill, you can climb up the boat and create a mesmerizing artsy look to match your face mask and make your eyes look glamorized. Even if you don’t own the skills, you can always get a superior make up artist course and follow up on the trend that is to stay.
Don’t let the focus on your eyes due to the face mask go to waste and not volume up your lashes. Eyelashes are the face of the eyes as they get the most attention. If you had put away your voluminous lashes before, it’s time to wear them and flaunt your eyes. And they support a minimalist look for the eyes like nothing else.
