The only day I made up was on my wedding.I do not powder myself even in the office. Influenced by my mother who uses no cosmetic(only cream) all life,I feel uncomfortable with face painted. However,our new leader said it is a must for office lady to make up and I'm not the exception.It seems I have to make some changes but it is really a must?

definitely friend! every office lady need make up! because the most of office lady need to face the customers of company. not for her self need, the make up is must for office development. when we meet a lady in reception with neat and smart smile, we will get a good feeling.if we meet her ugly, we will disappointing about the company! so the company's future is in lady's face! thanks friend for good discussion! thanks once again!

Which planet are you from. Where in this world says that Make Up is Office Development. Can you point me to that manual. Office Development is helping to promote good interpersonal skills with customers especially where communication is concerned. A person look better without make up. All this lady need to do is have a clean and smiling face and the customer will love her. Also be honest with you customers that I know is the number one ingredients to customer relationship.

Hello, impexp. I do not believe that make up is a must in an office. There are women who really don't know how to make up, and they end making it in excess. The result is that they look like monsters. I do think that some women are really more beautiful when they are natural. If your boss says so, then you should put some make up. But if it is not a must, then keep being yourself. As long as you feel nice with it! You should not be making up just because people say that it is a demand if you work in an office. You should do it if you are feeling happy with yourself using make up. Or if you boss orders you to do so. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

I hardly ever wear make-up. If i go out then sometimes i put on a little make-up but not when i go to work. I do cleaning and that doesn't require any make-up.

Artificial colouring is not a must for anyone whether they work in an office or not. I don't like makeup and only wear lipstick when I feel like. This new leader should seek self esteem. You don't believe in it because you have a great self esteem and most persons who does wear it don't even look good in it. Don't compromise yourself stick to your value. Go and have meeting with her and explain to her that you are not comfortable in wearing it. She cannot fire you for it because there can be a lawsuit against her.

No, it is not compulsory for a woman to put on make up even for an office lade. Make up doesn't really make a woman beautiful, its the way she dresses and her hairstyle not her makeup style in my case. Girls are prettier with natural unpainted skin. Makeups just make your face look artificial which is not your real beauty but a fake one to attract others.
