I’ve created a makeup MASTERCLASS to help you look your most beautiful best whilst wearing your face masks.
I’ll share my Makeup Artist secrets for keeping your makeup firmly on your face (and not all over your mask!)
…as well as an easy eye look that will help you make the most of your eyes!
Do you find that your makeup tends to rub off faster when wearing a face mask?
Throughout the day the natural oils on our face can start to break down our foundation and concealer.
And this can be even more pronounced when we wear a face mask… (they can get so hot!)
Sometimes, after a few hours, we have no foundation or concealer left on our faces anymore!
This is where a makeup primer steps in…
Introducing Delilah Under Wear Foundation Primer!
This primer has been created to perfectly prepare the skin for makeup -ensuring makeup not only applies more easily…
…but looks amazing & best of all, last longer!
Simply apply this primer before your makeup to help keep it in place for longer.
As a pro makeup artist, I’ve learnt lots of clever tricks to help keep makeup on for longer.
And this one may surprise you.
It may seem like this is in the wrong order…
…But spraying your face with setting spray BEFORE you apply your makeup is my secret for getting makeup to last longer!
Introducing Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray!
This setting spray adds a slight tacky feeling to the skin, allowing makeup to stick better to the skin and last longer!
And as an added bonus it smells incredible, like a juicy peach, and gives skin an instant refresh with a cooling feeling.
Simply spray on skin after you’ve applied your primer, but before any other makeup to get the ultimate in long-lasting makeup!
Do you find that when you remove your face mask, you’re left with lots of foundation inside your mask?
One way to avoid this happening (although, some makeup will always end up on your mask) is to apply makeup to just key areas of the face.
Introducing Veil Illuminating Complexion Fix!
This pen is a little tube of magic!
I like to use this pen to perfect areas of my face that need a little helping hand (thing dark under-eye circles and redness)
It gives skin a light & natural coverage, whilst still perfecting your complexion – and never looking too ‘heavy’ or ‘fake’!
Plus, this magic pen can be easily carried in your purse for quick and easy top-ups throughout the day!
Apply this concealer to key areas of the face, such as…
– Under your eyes
– Around your nose
– On your chin & forehead
– In any areas you have redness
Another key step in helping your makeup stay put on your face (instead of all over your mask) is to lock the makeup in place…
I like to use a translucent loose powder to help set my makeup in place.
Introducing Delilah Pure Touch Micro Loose Powder!
This loose powder not only helps you to ‘lock in’ your makeup…
…but it also reduces the look of fine lines and blurs large pores!
Use a small fluffy brush to pat this loose powder onto the areas of your face that your face mask touches (think around your nose and under eye area).
Do you sometimes feel your complexion looks a little bluuurgh?
Perhaps you feel your complexion doesn’t have the healthy glow it used to?
I’ve discovered a product that will help give you back that youthful glow!
Introducing Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in shade Passion!
This clever little bottle of liquid blusher gives the ultimate natural, pretty glow, it instantly picks up a tired-looking complexion.
Simply squeeze a drop of this watercolour blush onto your hand…
…And use your fingers to dab it onto the apples of your cheeks, using a clean finger to blend up towards the top of your ears in circular motions.
I know we’re all wearing face masks that cover our nose and mouth…
…But when we remove our masks we still want our lips to look pretty!
However, we don’t want any of our lovely lip colour to end up all over our masks…
That’s where using the right products can make all the difference!
Introducing Studio 10 Age Reverse Perfecting Lip Liner!
This double-ended lip liner creates the look of sculpted, fuller lips.
The pink end is the perfect ‘Your Lips But Better’ shade, meaning it’s perfect to help you define your lip shape.
The cream end helps to create lightness in the centre of your lips, helping you create a fuller lip look!
Plus, lip liners are more long-lasting and transfer less than traditional lip liners – meaning they’re perfect for wearing under a face mask!
Simply apply a lip balm first of all to create a soft and smooth base.
My current lip balm obsession is this Ouli’s Ointment Olive Balm.
It’s made out of nourishing olive oil, giving lips hydration and keeping lips super-soft and smooth.
Applying lip balm before your liner will help give your lips a slight slippage that will help the liner go on more easily.
Then apply the lip liner…
Use the pink end first to define your lip line by using little feather strokes along your lip line and fill in your lips.
Then use a touch of the cream end in the centre of your lips to create fuller looking lips.
Since for most of the day when we are out and about, our nose and mouth are covered by a face mask…
…making our eyes the centre of attention has become more important than ever!
And, believe it or not, creating a dazzling eye look actually starts with your brows…
Introducing Senna Brow Duo!
This brow duo is my holy grail for quick and easy brows.
The pencil has an ultra-fine point, making it easier to create tiny hair-like strokes that look both ultra-defined yet natural
While the clear brow gel helps you to tame unruly brows and keep them neat and in place all day!
Simply brush your brows up using the clear brow gel – this will not only help to keep your brows looking neat, but also help to give you the look of an more lifted-eyes by raising the arch of your brow!
Then use the pencil to fill in any sparse areas of your brows, making sure to strengthen your brow base and heighten your arch, creating naturally fuller and more defined looking brows!
I’ll admit it, eyeshadow can be tricky.
But here’s the secret…it doesn’t have to be!
Introducing Daniel Sandler Dawn to Dusk Trio!
This trio of products work together to create an easy eyeshadow look that anybody can achieve, no fancy brushes, complicated blending or makeup knowledge required!
First, apply the matte shade ‘Cedar’ into the socket of your eye – I did this using my finger, using little ‘wind-screen wiper’ motions, but if you’d like to use a brush, I recommend a fluffy socket brush.
Applying this shadow into the socket of the eye will help to create depth to the eyes.
Then take the shade ‘Gilded Taupe’ and use your finger to dab a little onto the centre of the lids to make your lids sparkle and make the colour of your irises pop!
Last, I take the eyeliner in ‘Blue Velvet’ and gently dab along the outer corner of my lashes and on my upper waterline, to make my lashes look fuller and thicker.
Do you have short lashes?
Perhaps they’re looking a little more sparse than they used to?
As we age our lashes can start to look less full than they used to…
…but I’ve discovered 2 products that work together to create the ultimate full lash look (a false lash effect with no glue or tricky to apply lashes!)
Introducing Code FFL
‘FFL’ stands for ‘Forget False Lashes’…and once you try this lash primer, you’ll understand why!
This lash primer helps you to prep your lashes before you apply mascara – helping to lengthen lashes with microfibres that adhere to your lashes.
Creating fuller and longer lashes!
Simply apply Code FFL lash primer to your top and bottom lashes, before you apply your mascara, to create a false lash effect.
Introducing Lord & Berry Back in Black Mascara
As a makeup artist, I’ve tried HUNDREDS of mascaras…
…and yet I keep coming back to this one!
It’s a makeup bag staple for me thanks to it’s ultra-thin wand – which allows me to get right to the root of my lashes, creating a fuller look without the clogginess!
Stamp the wand onto the roots of your lashes.
Then wiggle the wand and lift it up through to the tips of your lashes!
By stamping the colour at the base of your lashes, you create a fuller look whilst keeping the tips of your lashes flutter and defined.
The step to keeping your makeup on your face (and not on your mask)…
…is to give your face a final spritz of setting spray, to lock your makeup in place.
The Gerard Cosmetics setting spray also helps to give skin a dewy-look and radiant glow…
…which makes makeup look beautifully natural!
One question a lot of us have been wondering is…
…how do I wear both a face mask & glasses without them steaming up?!
I’ve got a simple trick for you that will not only help prevent this (and help you to see!)…
…but also help protect your from makeup marks!
Simply take a paper towel and fold it into a long strip.
Then place this paper towel trip into your mask along the top edge that sits on your nose.
This will help to soak up some of your breath and stop your glasses from steaming up!
It will also ensure that your makeup doesn’t rub off onto your mask, but onto the paper towel instead.
I hope you feel inspired to try some of the tips I’ve shared in this video…
…and that you’re ready to ROCK your face mask!
You got this!
