FOTD: Do you wear makeup under your face masks?

Hello everyone!

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic situation, I haven't been wearing makeup; in fact, the last time I can remember putting on makeup was months ago!  I was never the type of person to wear makeup every day but since I've been staying home most of the time and I'm not attending any social events, I found myself missing wearing makeup and feeling more put together.  Whenever I need to go out I'm wearing a face mask and sunglasses or a face shield (aka visor) anyway.  Dermatologists advise that we skip wearing makeup under our face masks.  Beneath a mask, makeup is more likely to clog pores and lead to breakouts.  If makeup is necessary, use only products labelled “non-comedogenic” or “oil-free”.  I have acne-prone skin so for me that means face mask + makeup = breakouts - No thanks!

So yesterday I decided to put on some makeup and take some photos for upcoming blog posts.  If you look closely you can spot this makeup in my previous post and in my next one!  I'm wearing a bb cream because it's way too hot to wear foundation (38°C/100.40°F), grey and gold eyeshadow, a translucent powder, bronzer, concealer (as a highlighter), black mascara and eyeliner, tinted brow mascara and matte liquid lipstick.
