How Much Do You Think You'll Spend on Makeup in Your Lifetime?

Are you ready for this? A recent poll by UK retailer Superdrug showed that the average woman spends approximately $13,000 on makeup in her lifetime. Does that seem possible? Check out the breakdown below:

The stats:

  • The results concluded that a woman spends about 20 minutes doing her makeup each day, or approximately 330 days over her lifetime.
  • According to the study, from the ages of 16 to 65, a woman shops for cosmetics about five times a year. Each time, she spends approximately $39 each time, equaling about $196 a year.
  • To break it down further, that's about $2,500 on eye shadow, $1,600 on lipstick, and $3,400 on mascara in total.
