11 Transfer-Proof Makeup Products That Will Not Smudge Under a Mask
Wearing a mask outdoors is a must and while it's totally necessary for health reasons, makeup junkies were bummed out by how mask-wearing has messed up their beauty routines. A bit shallow as others may see, but truly relatable, isn't it? Smeared foundation, smudged lipstick, uneven blush and all this mess imprinted on your mask? No, thank you.
While most have learned to play up their eyes and giving their lipsticks a rest, some do feel naked without a fully made-up face and that's okay. Finally, here's a list of the best transfer-proof makeup compiled by the beauty editors of Cosmopolitan, Marie Clare and Popsugar.
