For some people, makeup is part of dressing up for work. It’s part of their process of getting into work mode. After all, makeup has the power to give confidence, which can positively impact our productivity at work. Now that we’ve transitioned into the new normal, however, is it still the case?
To put that to the test, our hosts Jenn and Firas took on a makeup challenge – wear makeup for four days straight and then four days again without makeup. They then assessed if wearing makeup made them more productive at work.
Jenn and Firas are both makeup lovers, which is why the challenge was really a challenge for them. They’re used to wearing makeup on a daily basis, making the days without makeup insightful ones.
Jenn was distracted because she found herself being more conscious of the fact that she didn’t have any makeup on. While Firas on the other hand, although appreciated the extra time thanks to not having to put on makeup, felt like something was missing throughout the day.
