18 Jul Forget the makeup. Just smile!
Are you single? Are you “on the prowl” for a potential partner? If so, the following information may be of some added interest to you! According to a study by Orbit Complete for National Smile Month, your time is likely better spent focusing on the health of your smile and perhaps considering cosmetic dentistry from Lifetime Family Dental in place of caking on the makeup!
Seventy percent of participants in the study by Orbit Complete stated that they thought women were more attractive when they smiled. Despite what you might believe from seeing the serious-faced models in perfume commercials, sixty percent of men thought ladies who didn’t smile to be “moody” and two thirds of women said they looked disinterested–and those were the results without the makeup!
The study also tested the results when the women were both with and without their usual day-to-day makeup. The women did not smile in the photos where they were wearing their makeup, but were then photographed smiling with no makeup on. The majority of both women (73%) and men (66%) thought that the women who were smiling but had no makeup on were more attractive than those wearing makeup but not smiling.
If you’re one of the types who simply can’t leave the house without a layer of makeup, perhaps it’s time to focus a little less on the “putting your face on” and a little bit more on keeping your smile healthy and beautiful.
