Co-founders Sonia Khemiri and Sylvie Giret said, "We wanted to understand how people had adjusted their makeup routines during COVID-19 and to the inherent constraints such as wearing a mask or staying at home. Although we can tell that people undoubtedly adjusted their routines to the ‘new normal’ (26% have stopped wearing makeup), overall this survey carries good news for makeup brands, with respondents keeping up better than we expected when it comes to applying makeup.”
