Study: Young Women Aren't Actually Using That Many Beauty Products

The article says that on the East Coast women are more high maintenance, but on the whole we are using fewer products - even though we buy them.

Beneath the article are celebs with no makeup. Some, I think, are not recognizable and maybe that's the way they mingle undetected with the public.

I know I at one time was a makeup and beauty junkie. After finding out all the crap and chemicals they put in that stuff, I quit. I threw out thousands of dollars worth of makeup and sold off all my perfumes, body sprays and so on and that was 2 years ago, haven't looked back since. Now I use only organic and only necessary items like shampoo, toothpaste, soap...those sorts of items. I don't buy lotion, or any beauty products persay. I think as more and more people learn about the crap that goes in our products and foods, people are starting to move to the organic way of doing things and sadly...there really isn't any completely healthy makeup products out there, at least none that I've seen. I don't see organic makeup unless you count chapstick and lotion.

Study: Young Women Aren't Actually Using That Many Beauty Products, And Are Resorting Back To The "Caveman Era"

And in other news.......

Study: Young Women are going to work daily without taking a shower or brushing their teeth.
Is the newest homeless fashion trend the sexiest look ever?

I am west coast girl at heart, and this was always really amplified when I would visit my Texan cousins. They always had heels and full makeup on. On if you you are lucky, I might put on some gloss.

These days I use a bit more product: daily is face serum, highlighter and sunscreen. Dress up days I add mascara, powder, blush and perhaps eyeliner with tinted gloss. Super dress up days, or if I have more time? Polish on my hands and eye shadow.

I am pretty low maintenance though. I put most of effort into making my skin even so I can skip the foundation and powder.

I'm kind of surprised by this. It seems like makeup companies are always coming out with new products to add to ones daily routine. I usually only use foundation, eyeliner, mascara, bronzer, and lip stain. I was reading a blog the other day where the woman had a tutorial on how to get her natural look, and she must have had a list of 20 items she puts on. She had moisturizing cream, primer, concealer, bb cream, foundation, powder, bronzer, powder and cream blush, mascara, eyeliner, eye primer, eye shadow, eye highlighter, brow pencil, lip gloss, lip stain... and who knows what else. I couldn't believe someone would use so much product to get a "natural" look. And it must take forever to get ready in the morning. I'm not a morning person, so the less time I take getting ready means the more time I have to spend in bed sleeping.

I'm too lazy to shave regularly, it literally takes me no time at all to 'get ready.' I can't imagine being a typical girl and going through all that bother.

I think cosmetic comoanies are just making up products and what they're supposed to do for you.

A friend of mine got a make over at a high end dept. store...the natural look also....the make up artist tried to sell her:
- two separate serums: eye serum (that's the hot buzz word now "serum") and one for the rest of the face
- concealer, foundation, eye shadow base for your eyelids and helps your eye shadow 'set'
- eye liner, eye brow pencil, lip stick, lip stain, lip liner pencil, bronzer
- finishing/setting powder (to 'set your make up)
- and some kind of eyelash grower (a non prescription version of Latisse

I have a photo I took of the side of my face with a large 2 inch long blister under my eye caused with one of those creams that claims miracles to removed wrinkles instantlybut temporarily, it was expensive and said no perfumes or harmful chemicals or Id never have bought it.... never again... the day after I applied the stuff, my eye went itchy, then went sort of yellow underneath then the full blown ugly blister, ... I now hardly use anything at all.. as it makes you wonder about all the junk in these makeups , lotions , sun creams etc...
