Women wear three times as much makeup over the holidays
Study reports that women are caking on the makeup for their holiday parties.
Women wear three times as much makeup during Christmas time than during any other time of year, a new poll finds.
According to the Daily Mail, the average women will apply 12 products to her face before heading to her holiday party, compared to just four products that they apply any other time of year for a non-holiday evening out on the town, they typically apply eight products.

As one would imagine, this also means more time spent in front of the mirror than during any other time of year (around an hour to get ready as opposed to 20 minutes).
And what are women using as their daytime beauty essentials? Mascara, foundation, blush and lip gloss are the four most important, with eyeliner, bronzer and lipstick being essential additions for the evening. During the holiday time, highlighter, glitter and false eyelashes become makeup staples as well—which makes sense, because during the holiday season, the average women goes out at least four times per week.
