330 Korean adult women were examined the correlation between degree of makeup and makeup satisfaction before/after wearing masks due to COVID-19 and the moderating effect of mandatory/voluntary goal-oriented attitude toward makeup. The study found that lip makeup(p<.001) was significant variable in makeup satisfaction before COVID-19, and eyebrow makeup(0<.002) was significant after COVID-19. Although moderating effect of mandatory goal-oriented attitude, which works between degree of makeup before/after COVID-19 and makeup satisfaction was not significant, but moderating effect of voluntary goal-oriented attitude appeared to be significant before(p<.000) and after(p<.000) COVID-19. And the degree of makeup after COVID-19 was lower than before(p<.000). If one believe that makeup is for one's own satisfaction, degree of makeup can be significant effect on the makeup satisfaction, but actual behavior has shown that degree of makeup has decreased since wearing masks because of COVID-19. I hope this research will be used as marketing material for beauty and cosmetics industry.

국내 성인 여성 330명을 대상으로 코로나19로 인한 마스크 착용 이전/이후 메이크업 정도와 메이크업 만족도의 상관관계, 여기에 작용하는 메이크업에 대한 의무적/자발적 목표지향적 태도의 조절효과를 알아보았다. 코로나19 이전 메이크업 만족도에 유의한 변수는 립메이크업(p<.001)이었고 코로나19 이후 유의한 변수는 아이브로우메이크업(p<.002)이었다. 코로나19 이전/이후 메이크업 정도와 메이크업 만족도 사이에 작용하는 의무적 목표지향적 태도의 조절효과는 유의하지 않았으나 자발적 목표지향적 태도의 조절효과는 코로나19 이전(p<.000)과 이후(p<.000) 모두 유의했다. 코로나19 이전/이후 메이크업 정도 차이는 코로나19 이후 메이크업 정도가 이전보다 낮은 것(p<.000)으로 나타나, 메이크업이 스스로의 만족을 위한 것이라고 믿는다면 메이크업 정도가 만족도에 유의하지만 실제 행동은 마스크 착용 이후 메이크업 정도가 줄었다. 이상의 내용이 미용·화장품 업계의 마케팅 자료로 활용되기를 기대한다.
