I don't get my eyebrows groomed as frequently anymore since the hair come back a lot less, I get waxing done on the whole body on regular basis.

I find Americans think it is a treat to be high maintenance, mani/pedi's, but in Europe, it is part of daily life and caring for yourself on daily basis.

As for clothes, I invest on beautiful lingerie, matching sets and wear them daily. I don't believe what Americans do, wear only on special occasions. Life is too short for that and to celebrate good life daily. As for clothes, I don't shop frequently. I cultivate timeless pieces and have a capsule wardrobe. I wear my finest on daily basis, even for working out.

With makeup, I enjoy that so much and not because I have to wear it, but bringing my best forward.

If you see two approachable women, one looking bland, no glowing skin, unkept hair and clothes, and another with glowing skin, neat hair, nails, who would you rather approach first?
Most women don't go around with unkempt clothes and hair. You're painting an extreme. Opting out of wearing makeup and painting one's nails doesn't mean one doesn't address the basics of maintaining neat hair and nice clothes, or even styling one's hair daily, and taking care of one's skin.
