Can you wear makeup with a face mask?

What face mask is best while wearing makeup?

There is a recommended fabric for your final step, which is actually donning your face mask: A cotton or synthetic blend mask is not preferred, according to the majority of makeup artists.

What foundation will not rub off on the mask?

Fleming endorses the durability of Double Wear as well: “Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup is a traditional foundation that is budge-proof, sweat-proof, and humidity-proof. I practically guarantee that this full-coverage matte foundation won’t move, not even while wearing a mask.
