According to the flight attendant, this is serious business rule and non-compliance with makeup rules could result in dismissal
British flight attendant Heather Poole, with 20 years of experience, explained why flight attendants use bright red and bold lipstick color. According to her, this choice is not accidental and not dictated by fashion.
So, lipstick, which is often chosen by flight attendants for their makeup, is directly related to the safety of aircraft passengers.
According to Heather, the bright color helps to capture the attention of passengers in the event of an emergency, and literally makes them “lip-reading.” In this way, they are ways to better perceive the information that the flight crew is trying to convey to them.
She stressed that non-observance of makeup rules can result in irreversible consequences for the flight attendants.
During training, she remembers that there was a girl who was wearing glossy nude lipstick instead of red. Next day we don’t know what happened. “We weren’t surprised by her sudden departure. We had no idea if she had quit or she’d been kicked out,” said the flight attendant.
They are simply beauty dolls, who have to apply some very strict stipulations on appearance for those who got the job and they are even not allowed to have any visible tattoos, nor can they cover up existing ones with bandages.
