So I did a lil' experiment. I went to the Starbucks drive-thru without a stitch of makeup on, and the guy at the window wasn't exactly warm and fuzzy towards me. I made sure I was extra friendly and tipped extra well. I mean, hey, we all have our bad days, and my barista could have been having a rough morning. After getting my drink, I went home, threw some makeup on, and went back to the same Starbucks drive-thru and ordered another drink. And lo and behold, the same barista was at the window, and he was- dare I say- flirtatious with me! A very charming barista indeed, and apparently all it took was a winged liner and bold lip to make him feel warmer towards me.
Now, that's not to say that people are extra mean to me whenever I don't have makeup on. That's not true, either! It's just sometimes I've noticed that people don't treat me as well when I'm looking terrible. But maybe I'm just thinking too much into it. And this is all very much a generalization of people's reaction towards me. But I do believe that a lot of people are superficial and subconsciously treat good looking people better than average looking people. What do you think? Do you get treated differently with no makeup on?
