Two pain points that beauty lovers share, is makeup transfer to our face coverings and dreaded mask-ne. At Fleurose London, we use natural fibres that are inadvertently hypoallergenic - but we're more than happy to ask an expert their advice on how to cover up that zit, should it rear its ugly pink head! Andrea chats to Chynara Kojoeva, makeup artist to some of the world's prominent influencers. One look at her Instagram shows you the likes of Leonie Hanne, Camille Charriere and Aimee Song. Those are some serious creds. The queen of eyeliner (#wingitlikechynara) shares with us her top products to highlight brows and eyes.
Can you recommend anything to cover up mask related break outs?
I love NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (£24), I use it for most skin types, especially if you have acne. This stays and it's not too heavy. You want to stay away from cream-based concealers [despite the product's name], you want to use a water-based one. Otherwise it will slide off when the sun hits you. It's important to set it with powder, use a small brush to pat on the spots. I like Givenchy Prisme Libre 4 in 1 Harmony (approx £27.95).
How can we prevent makeup transfer?
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Pore Minimizing (£28) never gives any problems with transfer. The key thing is to not use an oil as skincare to prep the skin. Whatever foundation you use on top is going to slide off onto the fabric. I don't think you need a setting spray. I prefer hydrating sprays that you can use throughout the day. Natura Bisse have the best Vitamin C spray (£42), the smell and everything is so nice. If your skin feels tired it gives you that little bit of moisture.
