Make-up fans earn more

The fair sex, resorting to a careful make-up, earn annually an average of 6 thousand dollars more than their companions, preferring only mascara and lip gloss, or even complete lack of cosmetics on the face. Well-chosen haircut or styling also brings more dividends than something boring and awkward on the head. Such conclusions were made by sociologists of the University of California, Jacqueline Wong and Andrew Penner, interviewing 14,000 adult men and women. Some study participants talked about their incomes and how much time they spend on caring for themselves, others evaluated their appearance from photographs, dividing candidates for attractive and not too much.

As a result, the picture turned out quite predictable: people who seemingly seem more beautiful to others, as a rule, earn more “unsympathetic” colleagues in similar positions and with the same amount of work.Moreover, for women this difference in income turned out to be more tangible than for men: the beauty queens value themselves higher and, as a result, receive more modest women. The authors of the study are getting their hands up, because double standards are obvious. On the one hand, nowadays, the principle of “beauty can be different” is in fashion: selfies without makeup have filled social networks, plus size models conquer catwalks and magazine covers, and freckles, wrinkles, and extra kilos are no longer a reason for the complexes. On the other hand, as you can see, a la naturalle's appearance is quoted lower than it is, but after talking with a cosmetics bag, epilator and hair styler.
