Makeup…the social implications


http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/beauty/wear-makeup-appear-more-likable-2574648/

I am not a big fan of makeup but I still wear makeup occasionally. I kind of agree with the notion that people tend to think highly of well dressed women but to say that someone is trustworthy and likeable because of the amount of makeup they have on concerns me. I am concerned about the implications for our little girls. Our society is raising girls to believe that their success in life is highly dependent on aesthetics. We should teach young girls to place more value on education, morals and hard work instead of how they look. I do want to say that it is good to present oneself in a professional manner in the work place and with that said a woman should not be denied a promotion because she does not wear makeup. A woman should get promoted and or get paid based on how competent she is with her job.

  1. I could not agree more. Reading this kind of reminded me of Pigtail Pals in a way.
