Wearing masks has become our new normal whilst outside of our homes, but with it comes many challenges to overcome. Not least, Acne, makeup wearing off fast and coping with the heat and humidity they bring with them.

Fashions Finest has come up with some great products which will ensure your nose, mouth, chin and cheeks stay beautiful throughout the mask wearing months to come, as well as the heat waves we are willing our way in the late summer. (We can but hope!)

Upgrade Your Cleansing Programme

The daily, or even twice daily routine of cleansing and moisturising your skin is the first step in ensuring it stays clean, smooth and healthy looking. Especially with the extra heat and discomfort of mask wearing. Take a look at the range of oil based facial cleansers available, and choose the best for you and your lifestyle. Regardless of whether your skin type is dry, oily or a combination, using an oil based cleanser can help to hydrate your skin as well as remove impurities, and cleanse. A great addition to boost your current cleansing routine.

Make The Most Of Your Eyes

Since your eyes are what you are using to communicate most with, now the rest of your face is hidden with a mask for much of the time, consider accentuating and highlighting your peepers with the Autograph range from Marks and Spencer. These stunning eye shadow palette's will add sparkle and glamour to your brows, and each palette comes with four stunning complementary colours that work together to create a glamorous look. Simply wear your favourite shade on its own, or combine using the lighter colours to highlight and the darker ones to add depth and definition to your eyes.

Less Is More

The saying ‘less is more’ could well be true when it comes to protecting your face from breakouts! Consider wearing tinted moisturiser, BB cream or CC cream depending on what works best for your skin. These products are often more nourishing and much lighter on the skin than makeup.

Boots No 7 city lights tinted moisturiser comes in a myriad of colours to suit your skin, and they contain SPF 15 to protect your skin from sun damage as well. This great – tried and tested product is fantastic to mix, so you can buy two shades, and mix them dependant on the season, and how dark your skin is at that time, or you can also mix them with any other creams and foundations to find your perfect coverage!

Lip Hydration

Try using a lipstick that is both hydrating and long lasting, like this Stila stay all day® liquid lipstick available from look fantastic. Enriched with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil, this lipstick deeply nourishes and hydrates lips, whilst delivering bold colour that won't bleed or transfer for over 6 hours of wear. Lips are left silky smooth and bursting with moisture. If you want to add an extra ‘pop’ to your lips when you take your mask off, carry a tube of clear lip gloss, and apply that to your lips. It’s easy, quick and doesn’t require a mirror either.

Fake it!
