Not only is wearing a face mask when out in public a necessity nowadays, helping keep viruses at bay, but not doing so may also entail quite a hefty fine. It can be a nuisance for many people, but getting rid of masks is out of the question. For makeup lovers, the best course of action is to switch up your routine to keep the makeup from rubbing off.
Makeup makes you feel good. So if it gives you confidence, even if half of your face is covered, then go for it! Here are some handy tips to help your makeup stay put under a mask and work with your new daily essential accessory.
Emphasize the eyes using waterproof eye makeup
If there's one area that won't budge even with a face mask or shield on, it's your eyes. People tend to focus or are drawn to the eyes when speaking to someone, even from afar, so you'll want to accentuate this area more. Plus, it's the part of the face where you can freely experiment on without a hindrance. Below are several ways you can make the eyes pop.
Switch to long-wear, transfer-proof lipstick
Because your lips are completely covered under a face mask, you may be thinking of skipping lipsticks altogether and opting for lip balms instead. But lipstick is one of those things that can instantly make you feel good and empowered, giving you a boost of confidence. Why not continue wearing neutral or bold lip colors? All you need is a transfer-proof lip product!
Avoid making a colorful mess under the mask with Maybelline's SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick. This non-drying matte liquid lipstick provides intense waterproof pigments in a single swipe that can last up to 16 hours. It can be your lip's new best friend.

The best part is they are fade-proof, transfer-proof, summer-proof, and last up to 16 hours! No need to retouch!
Choose a long-wear foundation and concealer
It can get pretty humid and quickly oily under the face mask. That's why if you're wearing makeup, it's best to change up your foundation and concealer products and replace them with something more sweat-proof. After all, the best way to make your foundation last all day is to use products designed to last day!
Try the SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation for lightweight yet concentrated coverage that doesn't budge. Pair your chosen foundation with the SuperStay Concealer to cover your blemishes and keep them that way for the entire day. Finally, set your base with the Superstay Powder Foundation to steer clear of sebum. Make sure to use a brush, so it doesn't become cakey.
For a healthy color on your cheeks, the Maybelline Cheek Heat Gel Cream Blush's lightweight and buildable formula can give you that natural-looking summer flush to complete your look.
Seal everything with a setting spray
Once you're done with your makeup, lock it in with a setting spray. This will serve as an extra protective barrier between the mask and your makeup. A setting spray is one of the best ways to ensure your makeup is transfer-resistant and wouldn't melt or fade throughout the day, even when half of your face is covered.
A spritz of the Master Fix Setting Spray will help the products on your face dry faster and keep your makeup long-lasting. Make sure to shake it well and spray evenly around your face for makeup that doesn't rub off easily.
Lock your look under the mask
here's only so much you can do to prevent makeup from transferring on your mask. But with the right makeup products and techniques, you can keep the makeup on your face and off your mask for a significantly long time.
