I was reading an article the other day about the power of lipstick and how it can make us, women, feel better.
I know it made me feel sometimes nicer, sometimes more confident, sometimes could drastically change my mood, but I wanted to see if my fellow fashion/beauty bloggers, fashionistas agree with me, and here’s how it went…
I know wearing lipstick could be annoying sometimes, leaving traces on your teeth, applying it several times during the day… but trust me it’s worth it!
Lipstick can boost your mood!
Since ever women had a special relationship with cosmetics, because it maintains and shows the beauty of a woman.
Makeup works because it exaggerates our natural signs of youth, fertility and sexual availability, thus making a woman seem more appealing.
Lipstick in particular has a specific magic, it makes the woman feel attractive, unique and it shows the sparkle in her eyes.
Lipstick can help you get a job!
Wearing makeup — but not gobs of Gaga – conspicuous makeup — apparently can help. It increases people’s perceptions of a woman’s likability, her competence and her trustworthiness, according to a new study, which also confirmed what is obvious: that cosmetics boost a woman’s attractiveness.
There is also some evidence that women feel more confident when wearing makeup, a kind of placebo effect.
Lipstick will let you look more appealing to the opposite sex!
Guys really do notice your small efforts, especially red lipstick.
Not only did a 2013 French study show that waitresses wearing red lipstick received higher tips from men, but another recent study found that women wearing red lipstick were approached in bars more frequently. Yet another study on the matter found that “red lips would be associated with an indication of estrogen levels, sexual arousal and health, which in turn led to increase the positive perception of the women’s faces.” When you know men are looking your way, it’s hard not to feel better about yourself 😉
Lipstick makes you feel good about yourself!
Wearing lipstick is like a signature to each women, finding the shade that suits her and the shade she’s more comfortable with.
When you pick a shade that you feel great in, it can become what differentiates you from your peers — it can help you find what makes you you.
