Everyone needs a little confidence boost in their day to day life. It has been scientifically proven, that wearing lipstick can get you more attention in the workplace. Women are gradually gaining their fair share of space in the workplace, but there’s still work to be done. Being a man's world it makes it very difficult for women to be treated and paid the same as men; any leg up that can be gained is one step closer to equality in the workplace. We all wish that women could be treated fairly based off their education and skills, but let’s face it, it’s not that easy.
In a study done by Etcoff, et al. (2011) it was found that women are seen as more competent, trustworthy, and likeable if they wear lipstick to work. Not only will wearing lipstick make you seem more confident, but you will feel more confident too. Research has shown that lipstick makes women feel more confident about themselves. Women have indicated that whether they are 17 or 70, wearing lipstick can help them to be self-assured about their appearance.
