Connie Fisher on Make-Up
evolutionary psychology explanation: in more patriarchal societies, women wear less make-up (middle east v western world) make-up is a signal of equality. why do women wear make-up? "women have to show sexiness (attractiveness) to signal fertility. [...] subconscious natural selection." // industry worker "a treat, feeling good that rather looking good." // art, and can look like a different person // study showed that people prefer no-make-up make-up look. // advertising and marketing is positioning and spin it that it is seen in a feminist way along the way of 'you made the decision, you made yourself look better, ...' rarely do we judge men by their look ... ie rob ford toronto mayor, or chris christie. // Selfie has become a culture/pop culture phenomenon. bare face selfie is seen now as courageous! #trend - bare face is so alien to our make-up (look your best) norm/cultural norm! // putting on make-up and nice outfit (shopping, treat) can become coping mechanism against stress.
