How to play up your eyes while your mask protects

Going extra on the eyes is the answer

Holographic heaven

Hilary Duff proves that you don't have to be any kind of application pro to nail a glitzy eye look. Her advice? Smudge an irridescent ice-blue shadow gloss over lids and leave eyes free of any liner to let the sparkle takes its moment in the sun.

Sunshine shadow

Haven't seen the actual sun in days? No worries. Add a vitamin D-inspired twist to your aesthetic by reaching for buttery sunshine yellow hues. FYI, these brilliantly bright shades are particularly great for enhancing green or blue eye colours.

Cheetah girl

It's hard to beat a bronze moment, and boy oh boy, is this one glorious. We're big fans of bringing the shades from your mask into your makeup look, and this caramel and chocolate pairing goes perfectly with the leopard print pattern.

Berry nice

Don't think for a minute that flirty and femme isn't an option when wearing a mask - try pairing a floral pattern with shimmery shadow in a beautiful berry shade and a subtle coat of mascara for fluttery-looking lashes.

MÁSCARA DE PROTEÇÃO 😷 PODE CAUSAR ACNE?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Recebi algumas mensagens sobre esse tema, e prometi que iria pesquisar antes de postar alguma coisa 😬 vocês sabem que eu gosto de trazer informação embasada aqui, então demorou um tempo pra eu encaixar nas minhas pautas de pesquisa! Hahaha 🤣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Com o aumento do uso das máscaras de proteção, muita gente começou a notar mais oleosidade na área e algumas espinhas. Isso é esperado, já que estamos abafando a área com um tecido, e o ar que a gente expira acaba ficando preso ali e formando uma região quente e úmida. 🥵 A acne é causada pelo entupimento de poros e proliferação de algumas bactérias específicas na epiderme. 🦠 Essas bactérias estão presentes na nossa pele normalmente, mas no caso da espinha, ela se prolifera além do normal e os mecanismos de defesa da nossa pele não são capazes de conter a infecção - formando o pus, inchaço, tudo aquilo que a gente conhece e odeia. Esse fenômeno novo está sendo chamado de MASCNE.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Pois bem, o que bactéria gosta? CALOR E UMIDADE! Ou seja, é o espaço perfeito pra as bactérias que causam acne se proliferarem lindamente pelo seu rosto 🤢 Esse tipo de acne se chama acne mecânica (ou oclusiva) - e é proveniente de uma irritação local. Nesse caso, não tem muito a ver com você já ter acne ou não, mas se você tem uma pele com tendência a ter espinhas, isso é um fator que favorece o aparecimento delas. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Isso é normal? SIM. Tem solução? TAMBÉM. 🤩 O uso de maquiagem pode sim ser um fator decisivo aqui: quanto menos camada de coisas você usa, mais você ajuda a manter a área livre. Por mais que a maioria das bases seja não-comedogênica, nesse caso, é importante deixar a pele arejar o máximo possível. Mesmo assim, é importante hidratar a pele e usar filtro solar - por isso, prefira texturas mais leves em ambos. ☺️ Hidratantes tipo gel (ácido hialurônico) e protetores bem líquidos são ótimas opções.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Conteúdo revisado pela deusa @caroltonin.dermato 👩🏻‍⚕️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #makesdanotrabalho #maskne #mascne #acnedamulheradulta #makeroxa #maskmakeup

Monochrome magic

Not into brights? No worries. Classic black still works a treat, especially when tonally teamed with a matching mask. This sultry charcoal smokey eye is peeper-defining perfection, and the layers of lashes only enhance the drama.

Neon jungle

You don't have to be blessed in the blending department to rock a statement eye, either. Opt for a slick of liner in an edgy fluorescent shade like this neon lime green for a quick-to-apply but hard-to-miss vibe.

Gold status

We won't lie, this mask may be best for an indoor statement (aka selfie) situation (we're not exactly certain the chainmail material is doing all that much for protection), but damn does the metallic gold-on-gold duo look divine.

Minnie Mouse

Big Disney fan with a knack for precision? Great. If you're committed to a perfect mask-and-makeup-match this red and white polka dot pattern is ridiculously cute. Even the black trim and winged liner go together perfectly; 5 stars.

Feline flick

At last, the opportunity to truly showcase your exquisitely even wings has arrived. With all eyes on your eyes, your classic cat-eye finally has a chance to take the moment it deserves, so be sure to take extra care with that liner and lash placement.

Primary colours

Give us a smokey shadow wing any day and we'd be on board, but offer it up in the form of a yellow-to-blue lid gradient and a coral-coloured lower lash line and we really have no choice but to appreciate. Utter (and excellently matched) perfection.

Pink 'n' pearls

Elle Woods, is that you? This femme fuchsia vibe is a pearl-and-pink-lover's dream come true. After all, there's no need to keep your colour solely confined to the lids - you might as well take full advantage of the skin that can be safely on show.

Purple rain

Just for the record, your mask definitely doesn't have to be as snazzy as your shadow, and this magical magenta situation proves it. In fact, pairing your eye makeup moment with a traditional disposable mask only makes it stand out more. Purple perfection.
