Is LESS really MORE? - 04/30/14

We had a story this morning about a new study taking a look at whether people prefer women with more or less makeup.   The results: most people prefer less makeup.

I think that's interesting considering how much money is spent in the cosmetic industry; smartmoney.com reports 33.3 billion dollars every year!!!  We are spending that much money to "improve" the way we look. 

The new study and those numbers bring me to what I do for a living.  If it wasn't for my job, I wouldn't wear the kind of makeup you see on the news.  I'm more of a ponytail and and lip gloss kind of gal.  Having said that, I spend an incredible amout of time and money choosing just the right shades, tones, hues of lipsticks, eye shadows, blush, etc, etc for work. 

I've had the conversation with my little girl about beauty without makeup; that princesses don't have to wear lipstick and that true beauty comes from within.  This conversation started when she asked me why I was wearing so much makeup one night (I had come home during my break from work) and proceeded to tell me she needed some to wear to school.  She was three years old at the time.  That's when it hit me.  As moms, wives, friends and sisters, we need to be aware of the message we're sending to little girls.  Even though she's only four, I figured it's never too soon to start.
