How to Wear Makeup with a Face Mask | Maybelline

Masks are a new, essential part of everyday life, and therefore, a new, essential part of our everyday makeup routines. One of the biggest challenges? Creating a stay-put look that won’t transfer onto your mask when you take it off. Here are some tips for combating that!

ESSENTIAL #1: MAKEUP PRIMER

Use makeup primer to create a poreless, no-budge base. It was made for situations just like this and it takes all of 10 seconds to swipe on yet ensures your long-lasting look is flawless! Start with Master Prime Primer in Blur + Pore Minimize, and follow with Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation and Concealer for coverage that will stay put up to 24 hours.

Pro tip: To minimize transfer, always give makeup a couple of minutes to “set” between steps—and don’t apply too much product.

ESSENTIAL #2: CREAM/GEL BLUSH

To ensure budge-proof blush, use gel or cream products and set them with translucent powder. Apply Cheek Heat Gel Cream Blush to the apples of the cheeks for a bit of color and set the whole face with a light dusting of Lasting Fix Loose Setting Powder.

ESSENTIAL #3: WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP

While your eyes aren't covered by masks, they do have to contend with those awkward waves of warm breath rising up from your mouth. Use Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow and Tattoo Studio Eyeliner to create an eye look with longwear definition! Curl and define lashes with Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof Mascara.

ESSENTIAL #4: FIBER POMADE FOR BROWS

Use New Brow Extensions Pomade Crayon to easily create thicker brows that last all day!

ESSENTIAL #5: LONGWEAR LIPSTICK

We have great news for you, there is such a thing as mask resistant lipstick! Reach for your favorite shade of SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick because this long-wearing, water-proof, transfer-resistant formula will last up to 16 hours.

ESSENTIAL #6: MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY

Now, lock it all in by lightly spraying your face with Lasting Fix Setting Spray. This transfer-resistant formula makes makeup last for up to 16 hours! Be sure to wait until this is dry before putting on your mask.
