How Much Are You Spending on Makeup In Your Lifetime?

It's probably a lot more than you think!

July 11, 2019

Hi, my name is Kelly, and I love makeup! I spend a lot on makeup and skincare products each year, and I am officially a Sephora Rouge member! It's essentially a VIP club for people that spend $1000 or more per year in Sephora or online. Yup, that's me! I think now that I have become a mommy, I likely won't spend half as much as I used to on makeup because now I have new priorities. 

If you're on any social media platform, you've likely seen either advertisement for makeup or some kind of makeup tutorial video. People who do their makeup on Instagram and show their techniques have become stars launching their own makeup collaborations with major brands over the years because this type of content is so popular.

Today as I was browsing around the interwebs looking for fun stuff to share on the radio or here on my blog, I ran across a new study about women and how much we are spending on makeup! Look makeup can be super expensive depending on the brands you buy and use. But I had no idea that we ladies were spending this much in our lifetime. 

Any guesses?

Skinstore conducted a study that found that the average woman spends $300,000 on makeup in her lifetime. Woah! And guess how many products women are using on their face in the morning? 16!!!!

Why are we spending so much on makeup? I think a lot of it has to do with wanting to have the perfect selfie and all of the amazing makeup tutorials available online. Plus there are so many makeup trends that are hot for a few months and just die out. Have you seen the price on some of the contouring palettes? They cost a pretty penny as do the highlighter kits. 

And if you love makeup, there's a new brand coming to the Southpark Mall next month! Ever hear of Morphe? They are opening a store in the mall with all of their amazing brush kits and makeup pallets. You know where I will be next month!
