The Best Smudgeproof Lipsticks To Wear Under Face Masks

Who says lipsticks have become redundant as face masks become an everyday essential item?

Do you still apply lipstick knowing that you have to wear a face mask? Try asking your girlfriends and you might be surprised by their answers.In the “new normal“, we all have to don face masks when we leave the house. Consequently, many forgo lipsticks and focus instead on their eye makeup.

But for some, wearing lipstick is still part of their look because people can still see your lip colour when you have your mask off while eating in a restaurant. The only difference is the type of lipstick that one wears nowadays. Our tip: Always pick a hydrating, long-wearing, smudge- and smear-proof lipstick.

After application, use a tissue to lightly blot off the excess lip product. Alternatively, you use a small brush to dust a little translucent powder to set the lipstick. These two methods ensure that the lipstick has less chance of transferring and smudging across the mask and face.

Here are the best transfer-proof lipsticks you can shop in Singapore right now.
