Your lipstick can make or break your makeup game. While face masks have become a staple accessory due to the pandemic, our lifestyle and particularly makeup routines have evolved over the last two years. But that doesn’t mean that we should stop looking and feeling good, right?
Wearing lipstick under a face mask has become quite a challenge for women around the world, but with these simple hacks, you can conquer your makeup mishaps, if not the world. Read on to get your lipstick application right!
1. Exfoliate and Moisturize
For a smooth, long lasting finish, you must at all times exfoliate your lips properly and apply a lip balm. Use a lip scrub, soft toothbrush or a towel to gently remove dead skin cells. Use a lip balm or petroleum jelly afterwards to moisturize and protect them.
2. Line those lips!
You don’t want your lipstick to bleed, therefore you should apply a lipliner to enhance the color of your lips, and keep it intact under that mask.
3. Switch to matte lip colors
Matte lips are your savior because they are less likely to transfer or smudge, keeping your mask clean and your lips vibrant.
4. Blot, dab and go!
What can you do when you want to wear your favorite creamy lipstick but you know that your mask will totally ruin it. That’s when setting powders come to the rescue. Gently press a piece of tissue over your lips to absorb unneeded moisture. Then, dab a small amount of setting powder onto your lips.
Hopefully, these hacks will make your mornings better. We guarantee you that your mask and lipstick will thank you later.
