Now that wearing a protective face mask every time you step out of the house is a lifesaving must-do (quite literally), your makeup looks too need to be updated to fit the new normal. Your eyes are the only part of your face that’s visible when wearing a face mask; so, if you still haven’t perfected your eye makeup skills, it is high time you started practising painting your lids.

Having said that, it is not necessary to keep your eye makeup loud in order to grab attention. Chic, subtle eye looks can also draw focus to the eyes and make you look stylish. We’ve rounded up five chic eye makeup looks you can sport while wearing a face mask.

The reason why the mismatched eyeshadow trend has gained so much momentum is because it is so fun to look at. The idea is to use different, but complementary hues on each eye; pastel and glittery hues being a fan favourite RN.

Like we mentioned earlier, you don’t need to flaunt loud colours while wearing a face mask. A sharp and glossy winged liner that has been drawn to perfection can do the job equally well!

A subtle smokey eye concentrated on the just the outer crease perfectly suits dark coloured face masks. Make the darker colour pop by using a peachy shadow as a base and add a hint of highlighter to the inner corners of the eye.

Pigmented liners — whether applied close to the waterline or as underliner — add a quirky twist to your makeup. Mute the rest of the face and just use a coloured liner to let your eyes do all the talking!

 

05. Partial foil shadow
