As we roll into the last part of 2020, we may be struggling a bit when it comes to makeup and mask-wearing. While some have opted to just forego the makeup until masks become obsolete, that’s not possible for all of us. At MYDRY Blowout Bar, we can help with anything from a sun-kissed look to a full airbrush application.
For those of you who cannot make it in on a regular basis, here are some tips to rocking your makeup and mask together.
Make your eyes the focal point. Since wearing a mask means that the whole lower half of your face is hidden, it makes sense that you’d want to highlight your eyes. By making your eyes the focal point, your beauty will shine through, with or without the mask.
Make a statement with a smokey eye. If you’re going out, the smokey eye never disappoints. Embrace the beautiful fall colors by incorporating shades of rust, brown, green, and plum into your smokey eye.
Go bright and bold. If you’re ready to make a dramatic effect with your eyes only, bold and bright is the way to go. Oranges, greens, and plums are some of the vivid colors we are seeing inspired by nature while making a lively statement. If you’d prefer a more subtle pop of color, use a more neutral eyeshadow on your lid and opt for a bold-colored eyeliner for a touch of color.
Stay light on the cheeks. Wearing blush and a mask just don’t mix. The last thing you want is to have a layer of makeup on your mask each night or a line across your cheek from where the mask has rubbed off your blush. If you can go au naturel, that’s the way to go. If you cannot imagine leaving the house without something on your cheeks, choose a soft nude shade that won’t be too noticeable as it wears off.
Keep your lips moisturized. Most of us are skipping the lipstick because it just makes sense. However, you need to keep your lips moisturized, use a lip balm for proper hydration and to keep them smooth and healthy. For those times you can go without the mask, carry a light tinted lip gloss in a nude shade to compliment your eye makeup.
