British women wait a month before showing true face.
ACCORDING to a recent survey, British women do not go without make-up for the first four weeks of any new relationship.
British women wait over a month on average with any new partner before showing them a makeup-free face.
According to the survey of 2,000 single women conducted by British high-street pharmacy and beauty store Superdrug, “many women claim they feel far less attractive, less confident and more vulnerable without a full face of make-up.”
Six out of 10 of the women surveyed would wait at least a month before showing their bare face: “Many women consider going au natural in front of a new partner quite a serious step, they are exposing themselves completely,” explained Sarah Sharp, Superdrug’s Head of Beauty.
The survey also found that women spend at least 40 minutes getting ready to see a new boyfriend. “The research indicates that for many women wearing make-up isn’t just a way of looking attractive, it’s much more than that, it’s a way to be confident and project an image,” added Sharp.
But it’s not just prospective partners that women are hiding from: 32% of the women surveyed “would hate for work colleagues to see them without make-up,” while 20% couldn’t face their boss sans slap.
And the trend isn’t confined to new relationships: almost a third of women surveyed (31%) “would hate to bump into an ex-partner” without any make-up on. – AFP Relaxnews
