My manager told me that I need to wear more makeup
I was left feeling quite upset yesterday because my manager told me straight up that I need to wear more makeup to work. I felt as though I had just been told that I'm not pretty enough with the light coating of makeup that I wear.
It has taken me a long time to build up the confidence to wear less makeup. I would never have dreamed of leaving the house without eyeliner, foundation or highlighter two years ago- I also had terrible acne.
Its not like I come into work bear faced, I wear concealer, mascara, eyebrow pencil and a light eyeshadow. Surely this is enough for a big standard hospitality job? She didn't pull up anyone else about this and she said it to me Infront of two or three colleagues who were shocked. I felt so ashamed.
Do I have the right to be upset about this?
