The other day I had to take a professional photo to spice up my LinkedIn profile. As I was touching up my makeup and taking off my eyeliner to look “more professional” something inside me started to really get ticked off. Why is makeup so frowned upon in the professional world? The photo turned out fine but I cannot stop thinking about it.
Sure, I can understand maybe not going overboard to the point of distraction but why does a little wing and a pop of color on my lips make me less desirable to hire? A small line on my eyelid will not stop me from doing a great job and communicating well with others!
I guess it’s the same idea as tattoos in the workplace, but winged eyeliner is a part of my identity at this phase in my life. I know this is a short and off topic post from my usual stuff but I was just wondering what you guys thought about this. How much makeup is too much makeup? Let me know what you think!
