I was reading this article in The New York Times by Catherine Saint Louis called Up the Career Ladder, Lipstick In Hand about a study by Procter & Gamble, which sells CoverGirl and Dolce &Gabbana makeup asking Does Makeup Really Get You Ahead in Your Career?
"The study’s 25 female subjects, aged 20 to 50 and white, African-American and Hispanic, were photographed barefaced and in three looks that researchers called natural, professional and glamorous. They were not allowed to look in a mirror, lest their feelings about the way they looked affect observers’ impressions."
"It (makeup) increases people’s perceptions of a woman’s likability, her competence and (provided she does not overdo it) her trustworthiness... which also confirmed what is obvious: that cosmetics boost a woman’s attractiveness."
Give some love to the real you, :)
