Foundation of a Good Career – Tone Down Your Makeup, Say Bosses

Trying to dress to impress your boss for the coming yearly evaluation?

Wear less makeup, says a new survey by

This poll of 500 male and female bosses found that more than a third of these bosses thought some of their female co-workers wear too much cosmetics to work.

The worst makeup sins? Having bright red lips, overly made-up eyes and too much blush. Strong striking lips ranked as the biggest faux pas, with 32% of the managers criticized that the look was too overwhelming for the professional environment.

However, nearly all male and female bosses said they believed wearing just a modest amount was suitable.

While beauty may be in the eyes of the beholder, less is still more especially when it comes to professional appearance. This beauty mantra was also shown true by another recent study by cosmetic giant, Proctor & Gamble.

Looks like the red lippy is best saved for the glamorous night-out on weekends.
