Beauty Camera Makes You More Emotional!: the Effect of Beauty-Filtered Selfies on Consumer Decision Making

This research reveals a positive effect of beauty-filtered (vs. not) selfies on consumers’ reliance on affective considerations in decision making. Drawing on extant research on self-presentation motivation and confidence, we propose and demonstrate in two studies that taking beauty-filtered (vs. regular) selfies makes consumers prefer affectively (vs. cognitively) superior options.
