Judging Women & Makeup
Women’s Competency & Trustworthiness Tied to Makeup Choices AOC Private Studio
Are women perceived as being more competent, attractive, likable and even trustworthy, if we wear makeup? At least in America, the answer appears to be ‘yes’.
A collective group of researchers at Procter & Gamble, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston University and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute showed study participants photos of 25 women, aged 25-50. either wearing no makeup or wearing one of three contrasting cosmetic looks — natural, professional or glamorous… .
When the study participants had time to review the images more carefully, dramatic makeup was no longer as positive. People saw the dramatic makeup women as equally likeable and much more attractive and competent. In an interesting twist, the dramatic makeup women were perceived as less trustworthy.
Natural makeup women were perceived to be the most trustworthy.

Hillary Petrie @ Home
Egg Collective designer Hillary Petrie has lived in this charming New Orleans apartment with her roommate, architect John Kleinschmidt, for nearly four years. Design Sponge has lots of pictures of the apartment in an editorial meaningfully titled ‘What I Love Most About My Home Is the Light’.
The images reinforce the fact that when you have great architectural details and amazing light, minimalism is often the best design approach. Silly us worrying about where the technology cords go in that lovely ‘think tank room’.
