Because your “look” can have a major influence on your earning potential. Believe it.
Want a job or a pay raise? Get this. Researchers found a fair amount of preening and zhuzhing up can actually boost earning potential – well duh. But here’s the thing. “The key may be to appear as if you’ve put in some effort but didn’t go overboard,” says psychologist Prof Don Osborn. “Heavy make-up may suggest misplaced priorities: you care more about looking good than working hard.”
