Face Mask Makeup? Is this the 'New normal'?

The term 'New normal' is being brandied about so much these days and I can't help but wonder what it will actually mean for our day to day existence.
'Serious' aspects such as business and healthcare aside, social behaviors and customs also have to be re-thought and new norms adapted, apparently. 
Style and beauty, particularly, makeup, will not be spared.

Some days ago, I was going to run some errands and decided to make some effort with my appearance (because not everyday crazy hobo-chique), only to find myself struggling with wearing makeup behind my face mask.
Face masks are uncomfortable to wear on their own, now add the layer of makeup and then add our brutally hot weather here in Lagos these days, my face was a melting mess within minutes!

I decided to forgo makeup that day but I kept thinking about the problem.
Does this mean that we can't wear makeup (out) anymore? Is this another part of our lives to give up? What happens to our makeup stash; are we to throw everything away or just watch it expire?
Then as a makeup business owner myself, I wondered what this would mean for my company and for many others in my market segment.

I know makeup may seem like a small, silly thing to worry about right now but as long as we're alive, looking and feeling good will always be a need. One that ironically needs to be met now that we're all having a hard time. Anything to make one feel good these days is needed, right?

Anyway, as it stands, nobody has definite answers for Covid19, so i just figured that adjustment is what we'd need to navigate this so-called new normal.
No need for any drastic like giving up makeup indefinitely.

Enter my Face Mask Makeup look/technique.
This look is basically lightly-applied makeup focusing mainly on the eyes and a little on the parts of the face that is visible through a mask, like your forehead and temples.
So through my mask, I look like I have a full face of makeup on but I don't. The parts covered by the mask are only primed and lightly powdered which leaves it, as well as the mask, free and clean.
I just posted a full tutorial of the look on my YouTube channel, so head over to watch.
Don't forget to leave me a comment on here and over there, give the video a thumbs-up and also SUBSCRIBE, thanks!

Let's chat, what do you think about makeup in these times? are you wearing any at all or you're ready to throw your entire staff into the ocean?
