The world of work for women has not been easy at all. There is still discrimination and misogyny in which women have been rejected from positions or positions in which they believe that only men could succeed. And what about the pay gap.

Likewise, there are studies from the past that confirm that people who are physically attractive also have many more advantages in the world of work.
The researchers indicated that people who are more attractive tend to attract a lot of attention from others, especially recruiters or bosses until they think that they are more intelligent, creative, and cooperative, the reason why they can be hired instantly and even a good salary, as is the case with women who want to put on more makeup.
