2 Tips to Up Your Eye Makeup Game When Wearing a Mask

2-Tips-to-Up-Your-Eye-Makeup-Game-When-Wearing-a-Mask2021 has not been a good year for contouring lovers. No matter where we go or who we are with, slipping on a bedazzled mask is the new normal. With no end in sight, covering our faces not only affects the way we live and do business, but the way we do our makeup is changing alongside everything else. With masks here to stay and with lipstick and blusher taking the back seat – it’s time to learn how to play up your eyes. Here are two excellent tips to level up the eyes when covered in a face mask.


  1. Use Thin Strokes for Natural-looking Brows

Neat, polished brows are the goal of every woman, so start with smoothing out the blemishes around your brows with a cream concealer and finish with an illuminator above the arches. That not only gives your eyes a mini-lift but adds height to your brow. After, take a slim eyebrow pencil that is a shade darker than your natural brow and create baby strokes toward your brow hairs. Finally, use a small, thin angled brush to sweep the hairs neatly, creating a fuller, natural brow.

Bonus Tip: If you do not have a brow pencil or are over 40, use eye shadow to colour your brows. It is a fast hack that adds dimension and gives the illusion of more hair.


  1. Get Creative with Your Lids and Lashes

You may feel sad waving goodbye to your fabulous fire-engine red lipstick and rose-blushed cheeks, but there is something quite mesmerising about a covered face and Smokey eyes. To master this look, line your outer upper lash line and bottom lash line with black liner or eye shadow, and smudge with a brush. Once you’ve mastered this model eye look, invest in long lashes. Either spend some money on a quality lash tint or give the illusion of big, bold eyes by applying a layer of powder between mascara coats and then curling your lashes. Your other solution is lash extensions which are widely popular, affordable, and accessible today.

Makeup is a beautiful thing, but what’s even better is learning how to use it to your advantage. If you would like to attend a Saturday morning workshop on eye makeup or enrol in a long course in makeup artistry, contact Face to Face Beauty & Make-up Design School.
