FOTD: Do you wear makeup under your face masks?

August 16, 2020 0 Comments
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.

Hello everyone!

I was playing around with one of my favourite palettes, the Professional Eyeshadow Palette from Active Cosmetics, and I really liked the end result.  The lighting in not great and the eye make-up was much darker in person but I wanted to show you my Face Of The Day nonetheless.  Here are some photos of yesterday's FOTD!

  • Essence Stay All Day 16h Concealer (20 Soft Beige)
  • Yesensy Blusher  (07)
  • Catrice Prime And Fine Mattifying Powder - Waterproof
Eyes - 
  • Active Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Palette
I also used this palette in a previous FOTD post!


These are the colours I used for this smokey eye! (Dark brown, purple and a nude highlight colour)
  • Yesensy Retractable Eyeliner (01 Black)
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner (Carbon Black)
  • Essence I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara 

Eyebrows

  • Essence Eyebrow Stylist Set (01 Natural Brunette Style)
  • Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara (Browny Brows 02)
