You know this. But did you know how much beauty you can control?
The study says that, for women, grooming is a huge part of “beauty”… meaning that better grooming equates with better pay. Guess who controls your grooming? That’s right – you!
But don’t overdo. Your makeup is meant to make you look better, not to make you look like you’re wearing makeup. *
Bobbi Brown has a great Instagram campaign going at the moment called, “Be Who You Are” – a perfect example of natural + polished looks, great for most occasions. (Might want to sharpen the details a tad for work). https://www.instagram.com/bobbibrown/
Beauty-as-status is (and always has been) highly controllable. This is an area of study that has been neglected by masses of women lately, so it’s a very simple way for you to upgrade your status and improve how you’re treated – you might be the only one in your office who knows the truth.
Use that knowledge!
*Exceptions – when you’re out for a night at the club, when you’re at a party, when you’re in costume… have some fun, break out the glitter. But not at work. And, as always, unless you’re ready to own it, not at the school pick-up line either.
