It’s National No Make-Up Day, but have you dared to bare your skin? No? Us neither. Nine in 10 of us refuse to leave the house without make-up, according to a new Vitality Show report. Ironically, even though we go for the natural look, our daily application of mascara, powder and lip tint is what makes us feel like ourselves when we look in the mirror.
Make-up is more than skin deep. So it’s no surprise that 80% of us thank make-up for making us feel more confident and attractive. Two-thirds of us admit to regularly re-applying make-up before sex and 45% won’t let a new man see us bare-faced until after he’s stayed over. And five per cent of women are so serious about their products they refuse to show a man their cosmetic-free faces until after he’s proposed.
What do you think? What’s the make-up must-have you can’t do without? Are you brave enough to wash your face in the Ladies right now in celebration of National No Make-Up Day? Tell us, or inspire us all by sending a picture.
