I was scrolling through my Facebook feed when I saw our very own Arianne (a.k.a the Glitter Geek) share a really interesting article titled “How Men on Tinder Reacted to Three Different Levels of Makeup.” A beauty social experiment, you say? You have my attention.
I’ll leave you to check out the article for the interesting results, but it got me thinking about how my makeup affects how others look at me. Vain as it sounds, Brinton’s experiment obviously proved that as much as we’d like to think everyone has good intentions, appearance plays a role in how we interact with one another.
Have you had a similar experience to what the author found in her Tinder experiment, either in dating or even just in regular situations like work or social settings? Do you find your makeup can have that big an impact on how others approach you online or in person?
