Face masks are now our new normal, and regardless of the style and colour that you choose, the most important thing to remember is that they keep us safe and we need to wear them!
We have been asked for advice on many different aspects of wearing masks and we have a few tips.
Your style personality dictates the choices that you make and how you adapt clothing to suit your own tastes. It goes without saying that when choosing a mask, your personal style is important.
Creative - Homemade or from alternative retailers such as Etsy
Dramatic - Bold or textured fabric that makes a statement
Romantic - Feminine with a pretty pattern, feminine or lacy
Classic - Have several masks to co-ordinate with different outfits
Natural - Easy care fabric so it doesn't require ironing or disposable
City Chic – Chic, simple and understated in a neutral colour

For people who have had their colours done, choose a shade from your palette that makes you happy.
You're more likely to enjoy wearing your mask if it makes you smile...even if no one can see it!
If you suffer from dark circles we recommend that you stay clear of strong, deep colours such as black. Darker colours will only accentuate these.
Instead go for something more uplifting, such as your best red or one of your brighter blues.
Masks bring attention to your face so make sure yours deserves the attention it will get. Pick a colour that looks good on you!
Deeps - Balance your look with stronger shades or clear sharp colours.
Warms - Look for colours with warmth or with a golden cast.
Cools - Choose cool shades to balance and avoid colours that are too warm
Clears - Complement your striking eyes with vibrant and strong colours.
Softs - Opt for muted shades, neutrals or pastels.
Wearing the right colours on your face can make you look healthy, vibrant and younger. It can also have a psychological effect on how others perceive you.
Glasses and masks are not a match made in heaven, are they?
It is so annoying but there are some tricks which will help with the fogging of your spectacles and sunglasses.
Choosing a mask that fits well is a good start. Then follow our tips below.
- Wear your glasses over the mask rather than underneath. It won't stop the fogging entirely but it will help.
- Place a tissue on the inside of the mask to absorb excess moisture. This will also help to minimise make-up transfer!
- Wash your glasses in soap and water (baby shampoo is ideal). Wipe lightly or allow to air dry. The soap leaves a film that prevents glasses from fogging over.
- Try to achieve a tighter seal at the bridge of the nose using a wired ridge.
- Spray your specs with an anti-fogging spray.
Masks are good, they keep us all healthy. Washing your hands a lot doesn't hurt either. ;)
