Wearing a foundation under a face mask is tricky. For one, putting on and taking off your mask could smudge makeup. Next, when you breathe into the mask, the moisture build up also leads to streakiness. Not pretty. To create an even base that will hold up even with a face mask, you need to consider how your moisturiser might affect the foundation you layer on top and vice versa.
As a rule of thumb, match your water-based moisturiser with water-based foundation. Mixing an oil-based moisturiser with a water-based foundation, for example, can cause makeup to break down over time. To take the guesswork out, here are some of our favourite moisturisers and foundations that stand on their own but work better together.
