Find out exactly how much makeup you should be wearing to attract men!

Prepare to empty your cosmetics drawers, ladies!!

Because even though many find it hard to go a day without makeup, that challenge might become easier once this recent study gets out.

Researchers have found that men prefer women wearing LESS makeup!! But how much less? We'll tell you…

A study published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology took 44 women, and had them apply makeup as if they were going out for the night. They took photos both before and after makeup, then altered the pics so that each woman was shown wearing 21 varying degrees of makeup.

People were then asked to choose the most attractive version of the person — and the results had a lot of people surprised!!

Fish Pedicures Could Cause Wound Infections!

fish-pedicures-unhealthy.jpg

Eeewwwwww. Plus… poor fishies!

In 2008, pedicures using inch-long, toothless Garra ruffa fish soared in popularity throughout the UK and US. The 'doctor' fish would softly nibble all the dead, nastiness off of participant's feet, leaving soft, new skin behind.

BUT according to a recent study conducted by the U.K.’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science and published by the US Center For Disease Control, using fish for the above beauty purpose is not only potentially harmful for humans, but also elicits concern for the humane treatment of animals.

The Color Pink Might Not Help Causes

Filed under: Etc.

1pink-might-not-be-the-best-color.jpg

This can’t be right… Who knew the color pink wasn’t that popular?

A recent study published in the Harvard Business Review reveals that the pink ribbons used for Breast Cancer Awareness might not be all that effective simply because of the color.

The color pink is a gender cue which can trigger a "defensive response" among women.

The study reports:

“When women wrote an essay about gender, just 42% of them said they would donate to ovarian cancer research. When they wrote a gender-neutral essay, 77% did. And those who saw a pink ad about breast cancer were significantly less likely to say that they’d contract the disease than those who saw an ad with neutral colors. We thought, “This can’t be right.” So we kept running studies.

We looked at the effects of gender cues on women’s recall. We put breast cancer banner ads on a website we showed the subjects but never mentioned them. When the site was geared to women, 33% of women recalled the ads. When it was gender-neutral, 65% remembered. It’s been three years, and we have duplicated the same basic finding 10 times. It keeps happening.”

Though to be clear, the study found that it’s not the color itself but the fact that the color is a gender cue that triggers the response.

Models Encourage Girls To Smoke

A new study has found more teenage girls are smoking to keep their weight down thanks to models like Kate Moss.

The study published Tobacco Control medical journal claims girls who aren't worried about their weight are far less likely to light up than those who strive to stay thin.

Dr. Kaori Honjo wrote:

"This is the first study to examine whether the importance of being thin is an initiating factor for smoking among younger female adolescents. One possibility is if a girl believes that smoking promotes weight loss she is likely to develop smoking behaviour. It has been unclear whether teenage girls initiate smoking with the intention to control weight, or whether dieting and smoking are part of a larger constellation of unhealthy behaviours. This study suggests it is crucial to broaden the scope of health programs and policies to protect adolescent health."

We think this is a good start.

This is insane!

Author Lucy Siegle made some outrageous findings while writing her book To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out the World?.

According to the environmental journalist women purchase 62 pounds or half their body weight in clothing every year.

Wowsa!

Siegle also claims in her book, the average female owns as many as 20 garments that have never been worn.

Remember ladies, it's never too late for a little spring cleaning.

Wanna Make More Money? Wear Designer Labels!

lia-toby-wenn5544955_e.jpg

Good news for all those label whores out there!

Contrary to your bank account, a new study has found wearing designer labels can help you get a job, but also make you more money so long as the designer is obvious.

For their first experiment, Rob Nelissen and Marijn Meijers showed their human guinea pigs a picture of a man wearing a Tommy Hilfiger branded polo with and one without a visible logo.

Based on the subjects' ratings, they believed the man wearing Tommy Hilfiger had a higher status and had more money.

In another experiment, volunteers watched a two videos of a man during a job interview. This time, they voted the man wearing the logo shirt was not only more suitable for the job, but he should earn a 9% higher salary than the one without a logo.

Now here's the million dollar question: why?

Nelissen and Meijers drew similarities to the "peacock with the best tail gets all the girls". They add "people react to designer labels as signals of underlying quality. Only the best can afford them."

Inneresting.

Men Don't Care About Your Sexy Heels!

wenn5534799_e.jpg

This can't be true!

According to a new study by researchers at the UK's Northumbria University, men don't notice when women wear high heels.

O RLY?

Time magazine says the researchers "wanted to know whether the changed posture that comes with high heels — longer legs, accentuated rear and tilted torso — get noticed by men" and the answer is a big fat NO.

Hmm, we have a feeling they notice, just not as much as tits and ass!

Thoughts???
