3 new cosmetics to make your eyes pop even if you’re wearing a mask


Who said wearing a mask means no make-up and locking away all your cosmetics? Masks are a given so show off your eyes with tips from Instagram’s biggest beauty influencers.

False lash effect mascara

Mascara has been a go-to for our post-pandemic looks and has never been such a big part of our routine now we’re all in masks. If you want full-on doe eyes with a gorgeously glam false lash look, go for Pat McGrath’s Dark Star Mascara from the uber-talented make-up artist that all the biggest designers want for their catwalk shows. A beauty hit in the making that’s been tested and approved by the wonderful influencer and walking cosmetics encyclopaedia Jackie Aina. We love its unique creamy gel texture that plumps up your lashes and defies the laws of gravity to give you unreal volume.

Dark Star Mascara Extreme Black by Pat McGrath, £26.


There’s never been a better time to be bold with colourful eye shadow to brighten up the drab side of wearing a mask. The ultra-creative make-up artist and Estée Lauder beauty director Violette has made pop eye shadow her signature using matte and highly pigmented shades.

Sephora Collection Colorful Eye Shadow, 6,99€.

Flawless brows

The brows frame our eyes and you have to handle them with the utmost respect. The latest eyebrow pencil from Fenty Beauty has an ultra-precise thin tip, is easy to transport, thickens and tames the brow, hair by hair, for an intense and perfectly sculpted look.

Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler, £13.
