This means that the overall interest in make-up, the need for make-up, product purchase, and appearance satisfaction have decreased after the outbreak of Corona 19 compared to before the outbreak of Corona 19. In addition, lip-oriented makeup such as lip makeup and lipstick appeared to have decreased compared to before the outbreak of Corona 19, which was found to affect women's use of cosmetics. Conclusion: It has been shown that the mandatory use of masks reduces the purchase of cosmetics and also reduces makeup for beauty purposes by women. In addition, it was found that instead of minimizing makeup on the part (lips) that is not exposed when wearing a mask, makeup on the part (eyes or face) exposed when wearing a mask is rather more interested.
