How Long Do You Take Applying Makeup?

By on March 24, 2013

Did you know that women in the UK spend over a year of their lives applying makeup?

We all know that it is hard work to look beautiful on a daily basis, but how much time do you devote to looking good?
A recent survey has revealed that women spend 474 days putting on makeup; that’s one year and three months of their lives putting cosmetics onto their face.

It translates to devoting three hours and 19 minutes every week standing in front of the mirror- and it is eye makeup that is consuming the most amount of our time. The average woman takes 17 minutes every night out to apply eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara and groom the eyebrows.

All in all, that’s a lot of time being wasted, especially when you don’t have to exhaust so much energy!
You can save time and money by using semi-permanent makeup. Nowadays, we live in such a fast-paced, hectic world that such time-saving treatments can really be a lifesaver.

    • Do you spend a lot of time adding depth and definition to your eyebrows?
    • Do you use many cosmetics to try and create luscious lips?
    • Do you spend hours every day creating a natural Smokey eye look?

The bad news is that’s a lot of time that could be better spent elsewhere. Like working or spending time with your little ones. The good news is that you can combat the demanding procedure with our innovative semi-permanent makeup treatments.

A massive 93% of the women surveyed said that they could never give up their makeup because it is a necessity on a night out; and half confessed that they need to wear it to work. However, you don’t have to exhaust so much time, and similarly, you don’t have to give it up completely.

We are all in a rush in the morning to get ready and it’s not a crime to want to look at your best. With our help, you can go to bed looking polished and wake up looking au natural. You don’t need to go a single day worrying about your makeup smudging at the gym or when swimming; and you don’t need to carry hoards of cosmetics around.
