157-day #BeTrueToYou Challenge. Day 3. Still not wearing makeup. Still kinda missing it. But one good thing about this challenge is knowing I will save quite a bit of money over the next few months.
I was doing some research and as it turns out, American spends over 33 billion dollars a year on cosmetics (that’s more than we spend a year on cars AND TVs).
Turns out the average girl starts wearing makeup at 13. Girls ages 13 to 17 end up spending over 100 million on makeup as a collective group.
But what about our individual pockets? Well, the average female who uses makeup on a regular basis ends up spending about $15,000 in her lifetime. That’s a whole lot of dough. I’m sure many would agree that is a small price to pay for beauty.
After all, there are millions of people willing to go under the knife to enhance their looks. I am talking plastic surgery of course. But that is a whole other discussion for another day.
In the meantime, keep tuning in to find out how the challenge is going!
