Our buyers share their mask-proof make-up must-haves

Throughout lockdown, our QVC beauty buyers have been working hard to bring you all of your favourite make-up and skincare, but they’ve also been trialling the best products to see you through a day of mask-wearing.

It’s even harder now to ensure a fresh face, so products with real staying powder are a must. Keep scrolling to find out which finds make the cut!

Benefit Bad Gal Bang! Mascara

This is my all-time favourite mascara, it’s amazing for adding length and volume to the lashes and I always get complimented when I wear this. While wearing a mask, I mainly just wear makeup that emphasises and opens up my eyes and this product is great for that. Lexie Drijver

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better Foundation

This is the perfect foundation for me, especially as the weather is getting a bit colder, as it gives me that full coverage feel but at the same time it also feels really lightweight. The formula is super buildable, so I normally only need two pumps on my blending sponge to achieve the full coverage look. I also did the all-important mask test with this foundation and it didn’t budge at all, there were no marks left on my face when I removed my mask and hardly any residue on the inside of the mask as well!

Wonderskin Wonderblading Peel & Reveal Lip Colour Kit

This is the perfect lip product for wearing under a mask because it’s a great colour that doesn’t budge or transfer for hours. You can put it on and remove a mask, drink and even eat, and the pigment lasts through it all without having to reapply. I also find it perfect for video calls because the shades are lovely and vibrant, and it doesn’t dry out my lips. Trisha Flynn

Tarte Shape Tape Setting Powder & Superpower Powder Brush

I love this setting powder, it gives skin a flawless matte finish that’s long-lasting and easy to apply. This would be your final step in your make-up routine to help seal in your foundation and keep your make-up intact when you’re wearing a mask. Sarah Denning

Laura Geller The Baked Dolce Highlighter in Prosecco
When I apply this highlighter, it makes me feel ready to start my day, and this buttery Laura Geller formula is so easy to work with. I normally apply using a brush and the payoff gives you just the right amount of coverage to create a natural glow. It’s so quick and easy to apply at the end of your beauty regime, and it effortlessly ties the whole look together. Nicole Joseph

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer & Brush

I have always found this concealer has staying power like no other. I have typically oily skin, and this concealer doesn’t slide off at all. It covers up imperfections really well without looking heavy, and it stays perfect all day after application. Katie Cracknell

Benefit Gimme Precise Brows Collection

This collection is the perfect combination for my brows, as both products are long-wearing and easy to use. I use the Gimme Brow+ first, and then create a more defined look by going in with the Precisely My Brow Pencil after. They are an easy solution to filling out my eyebrows, especially with them being a focal point with a mask on! Trisha Flynn
