Wearing an eye shadow or mascara may look glam, but it won’t make you look like a glamorous bride.
A new study from University of Western Australia’s School of Business shows that while makeup can certainly enhance the look of your wedding, it will likely only make you more attractive.
“The research shows there’s a real need to think about how to get more bang for your buck when it comes to makeup,” Ms Priti Jain said.
“We know that people who have a big face and have a lot of makeup are seen as more attractive to others, whereas people who don’t have big eyes are seen more unattractive.”
For the study, researchers used data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Social Media and Communications Survey (SMCS) to compare the face and body attractiveness of men and women.
They used a face-to-face interview and asked participants to rate their attractiveness, along with a number of other personality traits such as neuroticism, openness to experience, social graces, and warmth and kindness.
“We found there were lots of things about people who had more makeup that could make them less attractive than those without,” Ms Jain told ABC News.
“People with more makeup were more likely to have an older face and an older profile, more likely have more hair, they’re more likely, on average, to be a more affluent family.”

Researchers also found that people with big eyes and large noses were seen more attractive by men, but not women.
While the results are intriguing, the researchers said the study didn’t tell us how much makeup someone with larger eyes and nose should wear, because the effect wasn’t large enough to make an impact on attractiveness.
“If we know people are going to look better, and that they are more attractive with a bigger nose, then we could use this as a baseline,” Ms Dolan said.
“But we’re not quite sure how much they’re going to be affected by makeup, and whether that will change how they look.”
In the long term, it may just be an indicator that people’s skin tone will change with makeup.
“The study also showed that the more makeup someone had, the more likely they were to have bigger noses.”
I would say you would get more big nose with more lipstick, because that’s more lipstick,” Ms O’Connor said.
However, the study also found people who were perceived as less sexy by others were seen by other people as more unattached, which was not the case for people with larger faces and larger noses.
For Ms Jian, the research suggested that makeup was just one of many ways to enhance the appearance of your groom, and it’s important to consider how you are going the extra mile.”
It’s very important to remember to take your time when it’s possible you could look too good, too shiny and too shiny, too fancy, too rich, too dark,” Ms Aussie said.
