The purpose of The Makeover Project is to help women in distressed life situations improve their self-esteem and as a result, become empowered and successful. We believe that when a woman feels beautiful on the outside, she can begin to gain the inner strength she needs to succeed. Thus, our mission is “Helping you feel Beautiful.”
A new research study has recently suggested that wearing makeup makes women feel smarter. It even helps them to enhance their confidence. The researchers from the University of Chieti, Italy and the Harvard Medical School, USA carried out the research project related to wearing makeup. The team did their research study among the 186 female students. Notably, they were all undergraduate students, and the research team tried to know the "lipstick effect " among them.
This "lipstick effect" is a common psychological phenomenon that boosts the confidence of a woman when she wears makeup and feels physically more attractive. It helps women to have the feelings of self-esteem, personality, and attitude. An important thing is a boost or improvement in the self-esteem helps to boost the cognitive abilities. Past research studies have indicated that positive emotions help in the improvement of academic performance. The present study related to wearing makeup has tried to see whether the positive boost in the self-esteem could bring the similar effect or not.
The researchers stated that it was not only the makeup that helped to bring better test results, but the findings suggested some new facts. Participants wearing makeup reported higher perception about beauty compared to other participants. This indicates that wearing makeup could provide a better sense about self-esteem that may bring positive effects on the cognitive performance of an individual.
The mission of The Makeover Project is to perform hair/makeup services for individuals and facilitate the distribution of donated unused cosmetics for the purpose of helping women in need. We help women who are suffering from depression and low self-esteem. The events will take place at Your Signature Events in Ladson, SC. We project to host the first event in April 2022. Any donated items or funds will make this possible! We have added licensed counselors to the event, so women can receive professional guidance to work on any personal issues. Any assistance would be appreciated in reaching our goal...
