Ladies! Ignore Makeup at Own Risk

Studies have proven what many have known for long; attractive and well groomed individuals are hoping ahead in the race to the top of the food chain. In such a scenario, a makeup bag can be your best friend at all times. Irrespective of how attractive one may think they are, ignoring that quintessential makeup bag could easily cost anyone much more than an ideal date.

As per the latest reports published in leading national dailies, an individual can enhance his or her career prospects by ensuring that all their visible flaws remain invisible. Finding it hard to believe? Rubbishing it as a turn of the century trash?

Surprisingly, makeup has existed ever since man was known to scribble on cave walls, at least as per scientific studies conducted in various locations escavated. The whole premise of the study is based on the fact that a well groomed individual is perceived to be motivated, confident and trustworthy.

With so many positive traits attached to the level of attractiveness of an individual, it all but obvious, that it would bring about a positive impact to the career growth and prospects as well. Any employer who is looking for people to take up leadership positions in an organization would prefer to go with someone perceived to be confident, rather than with someone who is comparatively perceived less positive in their outlook.

The bold lettered perceived is being used to highlight the fact that it is all about perception. However, it is not to be concluded that talent counts nothing when compared to attractiveness. What needs to be understood is that in this highly competitive scenario, an employee having a positive inclination towards grooming would have an edge when compared to others in contention for the higher post.

The scientific reason given for this is the inability of the brain to maintain focus on imperfections and thus, it leads to lesser importance being given to things or people with greater imperfections. It is a social norm which many try to consciously overcome. However, in general, the perception remains an integral part of the social infrastructure since the aforementioned caveman days and would remain so for centuries to come.

Makeup of any form, thus, is important as it hides the very imperfections which bring down the attractiveness quotient of an individual. Everything from scars, wrinkles or spots can be easily made less visible and required areas accentuated.

The study also concluded that women with better grooming standards were able to win prestigious roles in an organization and were also considered to be far more competitive. The study, however, also advises against going overboard with makeup, as it could result in loss of trustworthiness of the said person. Such people, although, considered confident and healthy, lose out on account of being seen as someone desperately seeking attention.

Thus, a professionally done makeup would hold far more value to a person, and coupled with well laid out networking skills, the individual is bound to find favor with the top brass. The one thing that should never be forgotten is that grooming can only take an individual as far as the next step; it is up to an that person to showcase the ability and capability to prove the worthiness for the trust placed on them.
