While the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread throughout the world and causes anxiety and panic among many, some are trying to turn the health emergency into something positive.
Beauty promoters around the world, including those living in some of the hardest hit areas, have turned the COVID-19 outbreak into a makeup challenge that allows them to create special cosmetic looks that match their medical face masks.
In recent days, the number of people jumping on the # mask make-up challenge has risen, with dozens of beauty enthusiasts sharing images of self-modeling masks – and a chic complementary makeup look.

Everything off: they’ve used the hashtag #maskmakeup to show off the look they’ve created around their face masks
Added touch: most focus on the eyes, some even adjust their makeup to the color of their face mask
The majority of the participants in the challenge have tried to adjust their makeup to their mask in some way, with some opting for simple, everyday styles, while others opt for a more dramatic end result with 3D effects.
Some beauty promoters have chosen to play the more sinister side of the corona virus by creating a creepy horror-inspired look, while a few have taken the trend in another direction by drawing on fake medical masks using makeup .
Although they have certainly paid a lot of attention to their beauty, many of the Instagram users who participated in the trend do not seem to have paid much attention to the correct method of putting on a medical mask.
A number of people posting # maskmakeup photos are seen with their masks on the sides and around the nose – something that makes medical wear almost completely ineffective.
General members of the public have also been warned that the medical masks do not prevent you from getting coronavirus, while the surgeon general goes so far as to urge people to stop buying panic.
On Saturday, Jerome M. Adams tweeted: “They are NOT effective in preventing the general public from catching #coronavirus, but if caregivers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!”
