^^^YES^^^ The irony is that the older lady the OP was referring to is a successful scientist, years of education and research experience, making a real difference in the world, being interviewed because she has something worth sharing/listening to (at least to someone). Meanwhile the OP is a makeup artist....

Can makeup or stylish clothing serve to make someone look more beautiful... sure it can, I think that's inarguable. I think there's a spectrum though between sloppy and stylish, and it is absolutely fine to fall somewhere in the middle.

I think that's what raised so many hackles. It sends the message that, no matter how intelligent we are, our looks are all that matters (to some). And the fact that it's another woman doing this?

Shame on you, OP.

Scientific brilliance is much more sustainable and long lasting than "beauty" and might actually benefit society.

I'm sure that Madame Curie didn't wake up in the morning and think, "Oh, I must make myself look beautiful!" She was busy pioneering research that changed the world.
