August 2014, Why Women Really Wear Makeup

Global beauty subscription company, GLOSSYBOX, asked its customers to complete a survey to discover the real reason why women wear makeup. We wanted to know everything, from when our subscribers first started wearing makeup to when they were last seen without it!

8,416 GLOSSYBOX subscribers from the UK took part in the online survey throughout August 2014. 100% of those who took part were female.

With 75% of GLOSSYBOX subscribers revealing that they wear makup every day, we wanted to go beneath the foundation to find out their makeup secrets. We asked our customers what was the main reason they wore makeup and whilst 18% used it as a tool to express their personalities and 11% confessed it was to attract a partner, 74% of GLOSSYBOX customers revealed that they used makeup to feel more confident about themselves.

82% of suveyed women said that makeup made them look more attractive and 43% confessed that they would never be seen in public bare faced. Makeup clearly holds huge value for our subscribers with 66% recording that they consider it a necessity in their everyday lives.

When settled in a relationship it appears GLOSSYBOX customers are prepared to go naked with 83% confident enough not to conceal their face in front of a partner. However, 17% still said that they would only take the bare faced plunge if they thought they were looking good enough without makeup at the time. Only 83 GLOSSYBOX subscribers admitted they would never let their other half see them without makeup.

Whilst the majority of our customers said that they started wearing makup between the ages of 13 and 14, 56% felt that 15 to 16 should be the appropriate age for girls to start experimenting with makeup. There were still over 100 subscribers that felt girls younger than 10 should be able to wear makup whilst almost 2000 said that girls should be discouraged from experimenting with makeup until they are at least 19.

GLOSSBOX customers are cosmetics crazy and mascara was voted their weapon of choice. 68% spent between £25 and £45 on just makeup alone each month and 65% of subscibers said they reguarly experimented with new trends and products. However when it comes to their morning routine, time is on a tight leash with 68% applying their makeup in under 15 minutes!

GLOSSYBOX creates monthly boxes of the best beauty edits for our subscribers to trial and experience. The September GLOSSYBOX is £10 (+P&P) and will be available throughout September 2014 from www.glossybox.co.uk while stocks last.
