Jackie Aina Teaches Us about Mask-Proof Makeup
Wearing a mask is an easy thing you can do every day to be a more responsible member of your community. however, a mask can do a number on your makeup, especially if you are wearing one for several hours a day. To give your makeup the best chance, try some of these tips from YouTube beauty guru Jackie Aina. Not only does Jackie have arguably the best personality on the platform, but she knows a thing or two about long-wearing, matte makeup. In her recent video, she shows us how to do makeup that outlasts a mask, so we can be responsible and snatched. 1️⃣ Use a primer before your complexion routine. This improves texture, longevity and overall look. 2️⃣ Tap a light layer of translucent powder over your primed face BEFORE using complexion products. It may seem strange, but Jackie swears by this technique and says it makes her foundation last way longer. 3️⃣ Forego dewy products for matte products where possible. Matte foundations have a longer wear time whilst dewy products tend to slip around more. 4️⃣ Use a high coverage long-wearing concealer under your eyes, and set this well with loose powder. Most masks settle close to the undereyes, so setting this area will reduce the negative effects of friction from your mask. 5️⃣ Use a little bit more of your complexion products than usual. If your mask is going to rub off a bit of your makeup, you want to make sure you’ve laid down a complete base, so that your face isn’t ‘naked’ after a couple of hours. 6️⃣ Jackie pumps some foundation onto the back of her hand, picks some up with a brush and sprays some Ben Nye “Final Seal” onto the brush. Final Seal is used to seal in a smudge- and water-resistant makeup look, like a setting spray. Mixing it into your foundation will incorporate the sweat-resistant properties into the application. 7️⃣ Remember to set along your chin area, perhaps more so than usual, as this area will take a beating from a mask as well. 8️⃣ You can make your eyes pop with a strong mascara application or a set of false lashes, to draw attention to your eyes and keep you looking glamorous while wearing a mask. 9️⃣ As above, stick to matte, powder formulas for blush and highlighter as these are less likely to slip around and can be sealed in with a setting spray. 🔟 Swap your lipgloss for a lipstick or lip stain - you don’t want to leave sticky globs of gloss on the inside of your mask and risk getting some on your matte and snatched complexion work. Added tip: lip liner increases the longevity of just about any lip product! *️⃣ Douse yourself in setting spray and fan yourself dry to seal your makeup in and give it the best chance at surviving your busy day! If you prefer a dewy makeup look, try incorporating your dew here at the end with a dewy-finish or slightly shimmery setting spray. That way, you get to achieve some shine without compromising your makeup

Just a few of my palettes
Some people love lipsticks, some love eyeliner, some love lashes...but me, I LOVE eyeshadow palettes. I’m not sure why but I always find a reason to get another one 😂 luckily a lot of this is PR because I’d be broke by now 😆
Pat McGrath Labs Swatches!
Just got some cute new swatch stencils from Etsy! So, I thought I’d swatch my first Pat McGrath LABS eye shadow palette. This is the Eye Ecstasy Subversive palette. I bought the duo, but I figured I would focus on one at a time. Let me just say, I am so sad I can’t afford more Pat McGrath products. (I got the palette duo on sale.) This palette is STUNNING! The shadows are gorgeous, the colors are lush and they have staying power. Stay tuned for a look featuring this palette and swatches from the other half of the duo!

STORYBOOK COSMETICS - Little Briar Rose Storybook Palette This palette is a new favorite I’m going to reach for time and time again. The shimmers are absolutely lovely and the mattes aren’t insanely pigmented, but extremely easy to layer and blend to your desired opacity. Some of my absolute favorite packaging that I have in my collection
