Face masks make people more attractive

Another reason to cover up.

Another example of overpositive self-illusion of unattractive people, I suppose. Pretty people are pretty people who need no superficial embellishment.

If taking an approach of "bag that face!" makes you MORE attractive.....well.......that says quite a lot.

Despite being outrageously handsome myself, I love wearing a mask in public for the anonymity of it all. And one thing is certain, I will never fly again without a mask. I always seem to get sick after sitting in a plane for a couple of hours. Planes are uber-gross disease factories.

I’ve got prominent cheekbones & a square jaw, so masks are certainly not my friend.

Well you have to take the mask off eventually, fuggos. Then what?

I hear you, R4. In my case, it’s my full lips. I’ve often received compliments about them. Now, no one can appreciate the lushness.

KN95 masks make people look like ducks.

I definitely focus on people’s eyes more now. I used to look at lips and teeth a lot and now it’s just eye contact.

I’ve noticed actually that women with large beautiful eyes look even lovelier in a mask because their eyes are more prominent.

Having turned 40 the spring of 2020, and then wearing a mask every day since, I feel a bit cheated. The twilight of my youngish-looks is dwindling and by the time I take off the mask, I'll probably have become officially invisible.

No they don't

I teach college students, mostly freshmen and sophomore. One thing I noticed after a semester of masking (we were online 2020-2021) was that masks made them look older. I can access their ID photo via an online roster, but I really got to know them -- and their (masked) faces -- in the classroom. I never saw them unmasked, week after week.

However, I would run into them (unmasked) occasionally other places on campus, and every single time, I was surprised that they looked younger than I had anticipated. The same held true when I looked at their roster photos -- younger.

My theory is that we tend to subconsciously assume people are more similar to us than they really are, and maybe this holds for age as well.

Surgical masks: the poor man's rhinoplasty!
