With the wearing of masks on the rise, a focus on eyes and hair is set to be a huge summer trend
Face masks and coverings have become a common sight across the globe in the wake of COVID-19. More countries are making the wearing of masks in public places mandatory, and – while they are set to play a crucial role in the fight against the virus – the masks themselves are also becoming more glamorous and exciting (see Lady Gaga’s Instagram for evidence).
Unsurprisingly, as masks should be worn to cover the nose and lower half of the face, beauty fans are going to be paying much closer attention to their eyes, brows and hair during this time.
So get ready for the trend by stocking your beauty bag with some of these fabulous products:
New from Dermalogica, Age Smart Biolumin C Eye Serum is a supercharged eye serum that outsmarts visible premature skin ageing caused by daily eye movements and environmental stress to dramatically brighten and visibly firm. Providing a boost of Vitamin C it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and hydrates and exfoliates for smooth, healthy-looking skin.
An eye treatment used by the actor Kristen Stewart and recommended by Elle Magazine, Dermalogica Total Eye Care is an advanced alpha hydroxy eye treatment cream to help protect and repair the delicate eye area while reducing the appearance of dark circles and lines. It helps to reduce puffiness, restore translucency and freshness to the eye area, and its optical light diffusers help to minimise dark circles.
A restorative hair masque for fine or damaged hair, L’Oreal Professionnel Pro Fiber Re-create Masque works to smooth and hydrate damaged hair from root to tip. A professionally formulated masque, damaged hair is left feeling stronger with long-lasting protection.

If you want to create dramatic eyes, Beauty Blender’s Liner Designer is a “genius” triple-edged eyeliner guide. With a straight edge that is flexible and will stay in place when gently placed against the skin, it makes eyeliner application a breeze. The triangular guide assists in achieving symmetrically lined eyes with ease, devised to help create different angles and liner shapes.
