4 Ways to Refresh Your Makeup Look

(NC) Although the lower half of your face is covered when you’re out in public, there are still tons of ways to express yourself through some special beauty looks. Here are some tips and tricks:

Moisturizing matters

Preparing your skin is more important than ever. As you leave the harsh winter months behind, give your skin a much-needed pick-me-up by focusing on hydrating and reviving. Apply a moisturizer every morning to serve as a barrier between your skin and your mask — it will do wonders in preventing irritation and maskne.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder

Since eyes are the focal point of the face, especially while sporting a mask, use products to make them look brighter, bolder and more animated.

“My clients want to add an extra layer of intensity to their eye makeup nowadays,” explains Megan Robertson, Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Pro. “Beauty lovers have been adding extra layers of mascara to emphasize lashes in addition to experimenting with different eyeshadow textures, bolder colours, shimmer and liquid liner.”

Get lippy with it

If you’re worried about your lipstick smudging during the day, have no fear. You can still rock a perfect pout but opt for a long-wearing lip colour rather than a classic lip product. Long-lasting lip stains won’t smear under your mask and will give you coverage that lasts throughout the day.

Self-care chic

What could be better than a new nail colour to make you smile as you sanitize your hands after every touch? “Nail-care products are also popular as people across the country rely on self-care as a fun at-home alternative,” says Robertson. Give your hands a refreshed look with some nourishing cream to combat dryness, and a manicure to match.
