It’s 2014 and my boss makes me wear makeup to work

I love makeup. I love having a nosey around makeup counters (looking at you in particular Urban Decay) and getting myself into a flurry of excitement over the bright sparkly colours. Bright green lipstick? Sure, why not? I mean it looked great on The Hulk. Liquid eyeliner so waterproof that it requires four make up wipes and the ability to scrub for 17 minutes straight to remove? Yeah, go on then.

But what I don’t love is being told by my employer during an ambush intervention meeting that I basically looked like shit without makeup. Oh, and that I was also to wear a minimum of concealer, eyeliner and mascara every day to work.

Read it at The Vagenda.
