Aside from tourism, airline and restaurant industries, one of the badly hurt industries smacked by the ongoing pandemic, I believe, is the lip-cosmetic industry. With the mandate (at least in my country) that everyone needs to wear facemask and face shield when in public, only a few people would venture into putting lipstick on. Also, my poor country being at the end of the queue among the countries where Covid19 vaccine would be made available, a totally different apparel has evolved during this time of contagion.
The style and fashion of wearing face covering has been born! Sorry to those who still do not believe the existence of Covid and would aver and persist for their freedom to choose not to wear one, I particularly is in favor of wearing a face covering. It is not for the mere fact that it prevents the spread and snagging the virus, it is also the thought of having to wear a stylish kind of facemask and face-shield.
Here in my country, in fact, the type or quality of facemasks and face-shields one wear characterizes his and her social status. The more stylish and expensive it is, the higher that you belong to the social hierarchy! Hahaha!
With the dawn of this new gear and apparel, I have actually amassed quite a quantity already. These are either personally purchased online, bought from a department store, gifted by a friend/colleague or shipped from (no less) abroad!
While I await the available vaccine, which would still be way way far away in the future (no thanks to the slow government bureaucracy here and no thanks too to the President, his security group and his cabinet secretaries who were the first to get injected with illegally smuggled vaccines here), I would rather enjoy the wearing and the flashing of some chic and stylish facemasks and face shields in public! Haha!
