This Simple Trick For Building Your Confidence At Work Will Surprise You


Let's face it, important meetings are stressful, overwhelming, and can determine how the rest of your week goes. Don't let these upcoming conversations put you in a rut because after all confidence is key when it comes to getting your point across and being heard. Rather than stressing over what to do or what to say, we have a simple step that can help you look and feel your best so that the bosses don't get you down. 

While looks aren't everything, a slight touch of personality can score you major brownie points with your team, managers, colleagues, etc. In honor of National Lipstick Day, we've partnered with Nordstrom Beauty to bring you seven different lip colors to wear to your next meeting, to be your most confident and boss-lady self. If you're wondering what lipstick can do to your mood and how it can affect your day, a previous study conducted by Edith Cowan University showed that out of 300 female studies, 85% agreed that lipstick made them feel 'very confident', and 82% said lipstick made them feel 'very good about themselves'.
