Cat’s out of the bag: What Waterford women spend on makeup
Women in Waterford splash almost €30 a month on make-up, a survey has found.
Their average spend is €27.91, according to the fashion retailer PrettyLittleThing which studied spending habits in the five main cities.
The ladies of Limerick are the nation’s make-up moguls, splashing an average of €35.41 a month, followed by Dublin on €33.75.
PrettyLittleThing also also dug into the dirty secrets of makeup bags. It found that 12% of women never ever clean their makeup bags.
Some of the items in the bags are even more neglected: 17% of women never clean tweezers or pencil sharpeners, more than 10% never clean eyelash curlers and almost 6% don’t clean makeup brushes.
There is a serious message behind the survey. “Going long periods of time without cleaning your makeup, in particular un-sanitised makeup brushes, can result in the transfer of germs, which can irritate your skin,” warned Amy Simon, head of PR at PrettyLittleThing.
