As a consequence of this year’s “new normal”, to say that our routines have changed is the understatement of 2020. Sure, it hasn’t exactly been a great time, but for the sake of holding onto our sanity, we must adapt.
Needless to say, face masks have become THE accessory of 2020. Does that mean that we must furlough lipstick, foundation, bronzer, and more from our beauty routine? Not at all. It just means you’ll have to switch some products out for ones with long-lasting formulas and finishes to avoid any smudging caused by your face mask.
With thousands of makeup products to choose from, where do we start? Here are some of our top-picks for makeup with all-day-long coverage. Your mask won’t be covered in makeup stains with these products!
Your makeup will stay normal in the new normal.
