The real reason that so many women have to spend so much time getting ready
Before 8 a.m., I have often already applied seven products to my face — face wash, tinted moisturizer, eyeliner, mascara and more.
And I don’t think I’m terribly fussy, or alone. In an effort to appear polished and professional, many American women — not all, of course, but many — spend a huge amount of time and money on makeup and skincare products. Hugely popular cosmetics companies such as Sephora and Bluemercury feature a slew of products that I don’t even understand – from Amazonian clay-infused eyebrow mousse to ambient lighting powder.
