In the past, there was nothing that would boost my mood like a swipe of camo. These days it’s not as simple. Indeed with the stylish long-lasting camo formulas, it’s 10 times harder to get that pick-me-up without getting smirches each over my mask and face.
The simple result then’s to either (a) skip a mask or (b) skip camo, but for me, neither is going to be. Masks are still recommended indoors, and camo is the key to bringing some semblance of normality to my day. Indeed if no one is going to see my cherry red Chanel but me or my Drone call, it makes me feel put together and ready to take on the day. And either, there is a commodity kind of glamorous about wearing camo that only you know about, like wearing La Perla lingerie under jeans and a sweatshirt.
Still, as mask authorizations begin to relax, I am further than ready to show off my camo at a regale or on my diurnal walks. But since I still will reluctantly wear a mask at the shelter or while walking around an eatery, I still want a commodity with some serious staying power. I am not alone. Lipstick deals dropped during the epidemic — putting an end to the celebrated “ camo indicator” economists have cited for decades — but they are eventually on the upswing again as vaccination rates rise.
As life sluggishly moves towards normality, the face mask has become a chief aseptic piece that you can not leave home without. And with camo being a makeup essential that you do not move out without, how do those ends match? As face masks cover the maturity of the face including the lips, does that mean skipping camo entirely? Or when you wear it, does further of it end up on your mask than sitting on your lips? To face the new normal in 2020, transfer-evidence camo will come to your aid. Not only will it stay put without reappearing on the inside of your mask, but there is also nothing like a swipe of camo to retain your normality.
So, keeping in mind that the only result to 100 avoiding smudging is to not wear camo at all, I set out to find which of the stylish long-lasting camo options hold up with and without a mask. Then are the bones worth a spot in your makeup bag for the foreseeable future — and also some.
