Do you feel a bit of makeup is necessary for females at the work place to look "professional" ?

Do you think going 100% natural looks unkept or lacking maturity or not professional ?

It depends on if they are front office staff or back office / factory floor staff.

Front office staff should look their best to project the best possible image for the company, everyone should have good personal grooming and look their best , brushed hair , well maintained beard or clean shaven if male , and tasteful makeup if female , perhaps some cologne/deodorant that is not too strong, you know the usual.

Staff that are not in the public eye can more or less please themselves unless it is unsafe to do so (no long flowing hair/beards outside of a hair net near food prep areas or heavy machinery, et cet ... ) within social norms (bathe regularly , perhaps deodorant ...)

Makeup hides your zits and other blemishes. I wish it was OK for everyone to wear the stuff. Nobody likes looking at zits.

idk about make up but considering the fact that alott of people have some level of disregard for hygiene..some guidelines need to be stated like
- dont wear an obnoxiously pungent or loud perfume,
- clean clothes
- dont stink or wear clothes that kinda dank 
- don't let your hair be a hinderance for your eyes

its not hard to follow these basic things so..yea

this was for white collar jobs ofc, idk whats the scene in blue collars.

A well-groomed appearance is a must, but I don´t think make-up is necessary. I would  have some difficulties to take a woman seriously who puts so much make-up into her face like a clown, even at her work-space.

Taking care of yourself and your general appearance is of course a must for all employees. Not looking slovenly, that's pretty basic stuff. But makeup in particular? Of course not. Makeup is to cover up blemishes, right? I have loads of blemishes, but I'm a dude. I'm not expected to cover those up -- it's just my lame-ass skin. Why on earth would a woman be expected to cover up hers? I HATE double standards.

Well, yes. To a certain degree at least. 

Women have their standards for upkeep just the same as men. Men would do well to keep a good cut of hair, shave, trim, and maintain a general healthy look to themselves. As for women, it is pretty much the same thing. You should care about how you look as it does show maturity and a level of self awareness. 

On the other hand, make up is not a must. It just helps is all, and some people like to look good. 

When you look good you feel good! And when you feel good you do good!

make-up damages your skin. permanently. it also causes people to age a lot faster (to look a lot older than they really are). it is unhealthy and bad to clog your pores, especially when done on a regular basis (like daily work). once a month a little bit of make-up for a party is fine, gives your skin a chance to recover. anything more than that is definitely harmful.


once you start using make-up on a day-to-day basis, (and keep doing it for some years), you no longer look good without it. you have to keep buying make-up products just to look semi-decent.... :no: thats such a waste of money....


some people have the benefit of good genetics and amazing skin that can take a lot of abuse. most people don't. i know if i started wearing make-up regularly my skin would dry up really fast and lose color.

I think that makeup can make a woman look too old for her age sometimes. Also I don't think that it's necessary at work, I think it shouldn't be necessary in any situation. If a girl wants to go without it that should be fully accepted

it doesn't matter what you wear or use make up or not.
we are always unfairly judged on our appearance. 

if you're ugly you'll just be treated like shit regardless of your merits of abilities or anything else. 

if you're ugly people will accuse you of not "grooming" yourself even if you do groom yourself.

if your hair isn't straight you'll be accused of not washing it.

The standards for women in the work place are ridiculous and need to be reduced to the same standards that we hold men to.

To be honest no. But sadly appearances matter a lot when we talk about a job, so it would depends on how you look with and without makeup. In my personal opinion, I don't think that because you don't do some specific thing with your appearance your capacities or maturity are less, but since this is the... working world? Apprearances are a thing :(

I don't. If anything, wearing no makeup would be more professional in my eyes. Although it is perfectly okay to wear any make up, or anything one wants, at the work place as long as it is reasonably chaste. And that goes for men and women.

No, I feel it's more the opposite. If you're willing to go without makeup, it shows you're more practically minded. You wont sacrifice comfort and safety for something like appearances. Like maybe it's because I'm a woman who is used to working in places like warehouses and around a lot of machinery but I always cringe when I see a coworker walking around in loose, flowing clothing and hair that can get caught in the machines and nails so long that she can't even use a terminal properly without having to hunt-and-peck across a keyboard. How you gonna grab a loose tool or something from under a conveyor belt in a dress and heels hmm? And don't come crying to me if you get too close to the robot and it scalps you because you thought putting your hair in a bun would be too "ugly."

Well...I literally look like a 15 y.o still going through puberty when I'm not wearing any make up so...I feel like wearing a little bit of bb cream helps make me look slightly more like a respectable adult...at least dudes are more willing to treat me like one instead of trying to talk down to me :I
Doesn't mean I think everyone should be wearing it though. It's not really a necessity. But make up is a neat tool to have in your arsenal, I guess.

No.

On another note, curly hair or long hair (on men) is considered unprofessional... like, what the hell?
I'm sorry sir/ma'am (boss), but I was BORN with this type of hair, and your solution is:
for men - cut it short
for women - make it straight, or tie in a ponytail

The important thing is... if you can DO YOUR JOB and not scaring customers away, WHO CARES ABOUT MAKEUP AND HAIR?

I feel you.
I have curly hair and have been asked why my hair looked messy, and I told them curly hair was supposed to be like that (I was wearing hair gel, and it make my hair look shorter).
So their solution? Cut my hair... again!!
Looks like some places don't like their employees to have or show curly hair.
