Default adding embellies to fabric face masks

My niece wants to decorate face masks at her bat mitzvah. how can we add embellies, like gemstones, so they don't fall off and they're comfortable on the face? bonus points if you can name brands that you have used succesfully! thanks!

Are these purchased masks or making your/her own. Making your own would be easy enough because you could purchase the ones that have little metal fittings and add them only through the front layer (the rhinestones I have for fabric, the metal part has four little points which go through the fabric and get set into it, a bit like an eyelet works). Don't think there's much point my checking the brand name because it's likely just European.
If they're purchased masks, I'm pretty sure that I've come across some glue tool suitable for attaching gems to fabric, but I have never looked into this.

Strips of sequins could be glued or sewn on maybe? I guess the problem is, they need to be washable. Perhaps they could make "ear savers" which are two buttons sewn onto a ribbon or tape. There are plenty of fun buttons on sale.
How about dimensional fabric paint? this sort of thing is supposed to be washable: https://artsandcraftsupply.shop/coll...-fabric-paints

I dont know for sure but would these work? Personally I would hand wash them and not in the machine though. Washer/dryers are not kind to rhinestones no matter who puts them on.

What about rhinestone studs? with the little prongs on the back?

There's also Aleene's Jewel-It:

Use it for costumes, clothing, fabric jewelry and so much more!

i've had some experience with fabric glues and it's left me a bit doubtful. i would love it if someone could give me a first-hand recommendation.
good point abt not putting it in a machine, though im not sure how practical that would be for kids!
i like the pronged jewels but they may be hard for the kids to set & the tiny bits on the inside might be scratchy on the faces
