Every morning we wake to penguins exploring empty aquariums, pictures showing self-quarantine are the silver linings in these tough times.
Recently, Twitter user @kafafendi shared a video of herself applying foundation, lipstick, etc on a surgical face mask. According to The Independent, the woman from Turkey intended it as a joke that mocks beauty influencers posting makeup tutorials.
While it is true that beauty gurus are still making such tutorials during self-isolation, with one even showing followers how to do it while wearing a mask (as reported by Mail Online), people didn’t think her video was funny at all.
She was slammed for creating unnecessary content that was nothing but a waste of time, energy, makeup and most importantly face masks! Take a look at some of the reactions here.

This is useless and a waste and possibly really bad for their breathing but I can’t say I’m not a little bit impressed ¯_(:/)_/¯ like… it’s funny

People struggling to find face masks because they NEED them, and you're out here doing stuff like this. Shameful.

There's a big shortage of facemasks that are essential to hospitals and people who can't do home office and you are telling me the ones who bulk bought them are ruining them on purpose to get clicks, this is sick….. https://t.co/JZsrmBoM35

A mask was wasted for this video? 🤔

Watching tutorials on social media is a common past time during quarantine, as is perfecting one’s skills but wasting essentials at a time when they are scarce is highly insensitive, don’t you agree?
