Why 1 Female Anchor Wants More Natural Makeup on the News

For better or worse, there's an expected look for female news anchors. We're used to seeing these women do their jobs while wearing heavy makeup. In fact, cosmetics and television journalists have become so ubiquitous, we've even published a story highlighting one anchor's expert application tips. Of course, the amount of makeup a woman wears should be her decision. That said, MSNBC's Katy Tur believes we are entering a new era of more natural-looking news anchor beauty.

In an essay Tur penned for Glamour, the host and author wrote that she's "over" manicures, eyebrow work, and other beauty rituals. She recalled a moment spent on the campaign trail in 2016 that changed her perception of makeup.

As she wrote, "One of our bosses treated us to a day off the road; we all got manicures and pedicures. It was enjoyable, but two days later I had this crappy-looking manicure. Then I had to find nail polish remover on the road. I thought to myself, these beauty rituals are such a waste of time. Sure, it can be fun to put on makeup and paint your nails, but sometimes it feels more like an obligation. And I was tired of that obligation."
