Maskies are the NEW selfie!

Updated: Jun 19, 2020

#Maskie is the new hashtag of our time. Why take a selfie when you can take a #maskie?


In the age of the coronavirus, the hashtag has been swiftly appropriated from the beauty hordes who previously used it alongside wide-eyed pics of themselves in various mud and clay facial mask treatments. These women will probably need a new hashtag, because if you search it on Instagram nowadays, you’ll find lots of pictures of people wearing face coverings in the name of stopping the spread of COVID-19.


In the week since the CDC told Americans to wear face masks in public, sewing instructions circulated online and many Americans grabbed whatever mask they could make or get. But a certain aesthetically conscious portion of the population became aware that face masks can be cute. You know, sewn from cloth shades that flatter skin tones. With attractive patterns. Enter #maskie.


Coming next, ironic #maskie designs. We’ll keep you updated.
