How To Make Your Face Mask Look Pop with Tom Ford's Eye Quad

Who says face masks should stop you from looking glammed up?

Tom Ford, one of the most iconic fashion and beauty visionaries of all time, once said: “Eyes are the most effective way to create character, to reflect your personality, and make a true statement with your look.” With your mask on amidst the current pandemic, it still holds true. Half of your face remains a blank canvas, where you can truly express yourself and have fun with beauty on your own terms.


From pop singer Lady Gaga’s stunning beauty look at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards to that of Kourtney Kardashian on Instagram as she urges people to wear a mask, one thing is clear: statement-worthy eye makeup, such as groomed brows, lush lashes, and striking eyeshadow looks are having their time in the spotlight.

Since we're ensuring our health safety these days, it’s very important to be careful with every action you take—and this includes applying makeup. In an article on The Washington Post, dermatologist Nada Elbuluk got real about how contaminated fingers and brushes may raise the risk of COVID-19 infection. “With [the coronavirus], but also just in general with bacteria and viruses, we catch them through the portals into our body: the mucosal sites, which absorb germs more readily,” she explained, pertaining to the eyes, nose, and mouth. Hence, cleaning your hands and makeup applicators with soap and water before getting your glam on is paramount even more so at a time like this. She also added that it would be best to do it once before stepping out of the house and not in public spaces like shared restrooms in malls. Wash your hands thoroughly before taking it off with your favorite makeup remover at the end of the day.
