Smudge-Proof Makeup for Under Your Face Mask

Who says you have to sacrifice a full face of makeup to wear a face mask? You can still be lookin’ your 10/10 glam self and rock a face mask at the same time. Patchy foundation, smudged lipstick and smeared bronzer – we’re just not about that life. So, keep your makeup looking fire with our top beauty picks that will hardly budge underneath your mask.



All good makeup starts with a good base. Lock in your foundation, tinted moisturiser, CC cream (whatever you use) with a good mattifying primer. This will make sure your skin won’t get super oily and help your foundation stay fixed in place. This Miracle Prep by Max Factor is pore minimising with triple absorbing powder complex to help control shine.

For long lasting staying power, try a medium to full coverage foundation that has matte coverage. If you don’t want a full, cakey look, mix your foundation in with a little moisturiser for a dewier look and finish with setting powder so your foundation won’t transfer. We’re loving this 24Hr Matte Cover foundation by L’Oreal with oxygen technology for an ultra lightweight feel.

Lip & Liner

If you’re going the whole way and still wanna a rock a full, juicy lip underneath your mask (why the hell not, girl), then try a matte gloss and line with a darker hue lip liner. Reach pout perfection with this Matte Me Up Duo by BarryM. It’s non-drying and will leave lips with a gorgeously bold finish.

Wearing a face mask is giving us the opportunity to really make our eye and brow makeup POP. Go all out and create the ultimate bushy brow for Insta-worthy glam. We’re obsessed with this Lime Crime Bushy Brow gel, available in clear, light brown and dark brown shades, creating the perfect voluminous, textured brow.
