If you go outside & wear a mask during this pandemic, do you apply your makeup under the mask anyway?

    Ladies,

    How has the requirement for wearing a facial mask affected your use of makeup or not being  outside and dressed?

      A look at the countries who have flattened the curve shows almost universal public  mask use. It keeps ones’germs to oneselves. Listen to the news around the world and you’ll see that mask use in being mandated as economies creak back to life. It only makes sense to deal with both ends of the horse in this crisis.

      In this case “50,000 flies CAN be right!”

      How stubborn and so self-minded some of us are! The infection gate swings both ways girls, this is not about “personal” rights or convenience. It is about keeping whatever virus or bacteria you might be incubating,be it could be Covid-19, but t it could also be about keeping the common cold, regular flu, tuberculosis, peridontitus…..TO YOURSELF….Or don’t you care about..me?

      Plus, trust me as I’ve done this now a dozen times or so, it gives us a chance to dress in public with an added sense of security. Do you know how uplifting it can be to be addressed in the feminine case ten or twelve times on a shopping outing?

      Haven’t had to do that yet, but if I did, I’d just do my eyes. My wife says that a lot of the women, at her store, are complaining that all their makeup comes off on the mask.

      I wore a mask yesterday at the grocery store not because I was worried about covid-19 but it made me harder to recognize in my first time out in public dressed had gloves on to help hide the masculinity of my hands which have been getting the crap beat out of them lately by my work. But I was fully made up as that’s how I like to be red lipstick on under the mask and freshly painted red nails on under my gloves

      I’m just not Bettylou without my makeup; and since I found a way to look presentable, I always put my face on to go out. But it only the past two weeks or so that I put a mask in the car to wear every time I go.

      <p style=”text-align: left;”>Yes, I put on makeup as usual except for lipstick. I find that can smear if the mask touches it. I can apply some if I am somewhere that doesn’t require a mask, then blot most of it off before putting the mask back on.</p>

      Oops! There’s a typo in my comment. It should say “To put it another way, our behavior may have saved 30,000 lives so far.” Still worth it, I think.

      I do wear a mask whenever I know I might be in close proximity to other people. These days that’s just once or twice a week when I shop for groceries or medicine. The mask-wearing has discouraged me from dressing, since I can’t see Lori. Indeed, I haven’t seen her since the “lockdown” began and I’m really starting to miss her. 🙂

      Where I live (California) compliance has been very good. We know you can shed the virus just by breathing or talking, never mind sneezing or coughing. So we’re all staying in, keeping our distance and covering our faces. And the results are clear: We have twice as many people as New York, and just a tenth as many cases of Covid-19. To put it another way, our behavior may have saved 50,000 lives so far.

      So it’s disheartening to think there are many who do not or will not go along with the minimal inconvenience of wearing a mask in public. It’s not a matter of politics, “paranoia” or “big government.” It’s a matter of science and public health. Perhaps the personal protective gear we as civilians have access to isn’t designed 100% to keep us from becoming infected, but a simple mask will go a long way to slow the spread of this deadly, contagious virus. And that’s all we have right now, because there’s no immunity, no vaccine, no treatment, and no cure.

      Voluntary or not, inconvenient or not, count me among the millions complying with CDC and White House guidelines, for all my sisters — and brothers.

      This ties in nicely with the post about pantsuits. Good idea in the face of El Covido.

      So…any ideas where I can get a shapely, form fitted space suit, in a nice roses or daffodils print? It is spring after all.

      We are are own masters ….and our own fools.

      My lovely aquamarine and pink face mask might just protect…you! from me.

      People who do NOT wear a mask are being inconsiderate of there friends and love ones. You can be an Asymptomatic  carrier and you or no one else knows.

      Lori, I respect your right to wear a mask if you wish.  I believe my methodology is just as effective as yours.  You and I are more likely to die in a car crash tomorrow than die from Coronovirus.  I will not subject myself to the fears perpetrated upon us by the mass media and big government.

        For perspective, US automobile fatalities are just under 40,000 per year. Coronavirus fatalities are at about 23,000 so far and we’re about at mid-April…

      If I was going out dressed yes I would have makeup on but I don’t wear a mask anyway, you’re waisting your time. You would have to wear a space suit to avoid this thing, don’t say that too loud or that will be next. lol

      So given that is appears to be possible to carry the virus and be asymptomatic my self sewn masks may be of some help in protecting others from myself. With the mask in place I am far less likely to touch my face. Especially because I’m wearing bright yellow rubber gloves. I’ve also made a face shield by stapling some acetate sheeting to the outer edge of the brim of a sailing hat. That worked out incredibly well this weekend and I got lots of thumbs up. I’ve also seen people wearing a mask and swimming or ski goggles…..

      My first masks were simply cotton fabric from one of my favorite worn out dress shirts machine sewn over dust masks I use doing sanding or sweeping in my woodshop.

      But here’s an interesting and maybe perverse development…

      I have long blonde hair, and with my hair out and wearing one of my first masks I was addressed in the feminine case over and over.  So I sewed some new masks with some pretty floral cotton print from one of my kerchiefs. I did up my eyes only and wore a bra and forms at the grocery store and got once again addressed in the feminine case over and over.

      So it seems odd, but El Covido is giving us an open door to present easily enfemme….a door we should walk through.

      Be careful boys…it’s a jungle out there!

      I will wear a mask while out mainly as a extra precaution against bringing home the virus since my wife has a compromised immune system from her cancer. So far as makeup I would certainly do full face just simply because I like to see Stephanie looking fab in the mirror! After all I will be in my car most of the time. Beauty is nothing though without health! Be smart not vain.

      Since it’s been explained that the virus is contagious within an aerosol expelled in the form of a sneeze or cough within six feet of someone, I choose to maintain as normal of a life as possible.  I will not wear a mask (it’s not been mandated) and I will exercise proper protocol and keep a minimum of six feet from others.  I always covered my sneeze or cough going back to what I was taught as a child.  If you sneeze or cough without covering up, you’re just a senseless moronic pig!!

      I live and work in the country in Maine. Today was Easter my wife and her sister have horses and this Easter morning while they where cleaning the barn I dressed all up nice tight jeans and fully made up and went to the barn . I had a bandana on over my makeup it was the first time my sister in – law has ever seen me dressed . She thought it was a neighbor I took my bandana off and she was some impressed and than I helped out with the barn . This will be a Easter to remember.  Yes if I wear a mask I would have makeup on if going out dressed up and I do stay six feet away . I hope you all had a good Easter and I hope every one is safe thanks

      There’s research articles online showing results from monitoring sneeze clouds with high speed cameras. The larger, heavier droplets fall to the floor, but the really tiny ones respond to the prevailing air currents in the room. They can stay suspended in the room for long periods of time…

      I don’t wear a mask as they offer dubious benefits and indicate a state of paranoia for most people.

      A consultant I work with has said the best thing to do with masks is give them to people who are symptomatic. That way the mask would catch most of the virus infected droplets when they sneeze.

      As for makeup. Wear that as normal.

      Happy Easter girls.

      Anne-Marie.

      Anne-Marie – Surgical masks or homemade cloth masks are not perfect, but they do have at least some benefits in slowing the spread of the virus, just as social distancing isn’t perfect, but it helps. Further, you don’t have to show symptoms to spread coronavirus — you can be asymptomatic and still infect others. Please consider wearing a mask when interacting with the public, for the sake of all of us.

      I have a beard, and like to keep it. I plan to shave it to a shape that will fit under a mask and allow for it to seal properly.  This will allow me to go enfemme and keep my beard and go out in public without looking like a bearded lady.

      Most of the time when I go out, I’m not near enough to people to have to worry about wearing a mask.  The two times I did wear one while out en femme, I didn’t put makeup under the mask, but did put a touch of foundation on my cheeks outside the mask just to make sure there is no facial hair showing.

      Wearing  a mask will hide my facial hair. I could also hide with dark glasses.  This could finally get me out of the closet  for a short while.

      As a responsible member of our society, if told to wear a fascial cover, I will.

      As a surgeon, I have worn a face mask from 1967 to 2017. It won’t be much different from my professional life. I tend to ” do” what I am asked to do. I followed orders for my 25 yr and my 20 yr VA careers.

      Dressed I am fully made up, no change.

      Dr.T.J.
