Above The Mask Makeup: How to Make Your Eyes Pop While Staying Safe
Just when we thought it was safe to shed the mask, Covid-19 numbers — and a new variant — crept into our lives and the masks went back on. Since it’s likely they’ll be on and off for a while, we’re perfecting our perfect mask makeup. No, this isn’t heavy, full-coverage foundation with tons of setting spray. Instead, we’re letting the skin under our masks breathe and focusing on what you can see: eyes and brows. Those tend to be the most fun places to glam, anyway.
Below, our quick 5-step mask makeup routine you can do in less than 10 minutes. Because who knows who you’ll lock eyes with at the grocery store!
1. Just because you’re not wearing foundation, doesn’t mean you can’t brighten up under your eyes. NUDESTIX NUDEFIX CREAM CONCEALER is a hydrating cream concealer that brightens dark circles, moisturizes dry skin and hides any redness and blemishes that may be visible. The vegan and cruelty-free formula is infused with skincare-like ingredients so you’re giving your skin the care it needs.
2. Next, you’ll want to get your brows in shape since they’re going to be the focus of your face. Use NUDESTIX EYEBROW STYLUS PENCIL & GEL to fill in sparse areas, fluff hairs and set the look — all in one dual-ended pen. For the strongest hold, brush upwards using the spoolie of your BROW STYLUS SETTING GEL and let dry.
3. Of course, you can stop there. Or you can turn on the glam with a few swipes of NUDESTIX MAGNETIC EYE COLOR onto lids. Pick one of 39 different matte and luminous hues that complement your outfit. Use the pencil to line eyes and blend on both the upper and bottom lash lines. The water-resistant formula stays put.
4. Make your eyes really pop by adding a few dots of NUDESTIX MAGNETIC NUDE GLIMMERS to the inner corner of eyes, brow bone and anywhere else you want a little extra shine. These multi-tasking, luminous highlighters melt into the skin rather than sitting on top of it to achieve the lit-from-within glow.
5. Finish with a few coats of NUDESTIX VEGAN SPLASHPROOF MASCARA for long, full, healthy looking lashes. This waterproof formula is rich in lash-nourishing plant-based oils to moisturize, strengthen and protect your lashes.
Pro tip: to keep lips hydrated and soft under a mask, apply NUDESTIX HYDRA-PEPTIDE LIP BUTTER to lips as often as needed. Juicy avocado butter nourishes to leave your lips soft, supple and hydrated. Plus, the minty fresh taste will help nix that hot, stuffy mask vibe.
You can look gorgeous while keeping safe at the same time.
