The price of the beauty can be high nowadays. I don’t mean natural beauty, of course. Many women adore makeup to the point of buying it at unimaginably high prices. But is it worth it?
As you can see in this tutorial, you can look really good with simple drugstore makeup. But what most people don’t realize is that you can save a lot of money and still look good. Many think that designer makeup will make you look extra, glamorous, and quite noticeable. Are they right? This social experiment will tell you if people notice one twin wearing designer makeup, while the other one looks pretty much the same with simple drugstore makeup.
According to Harpers Bazaar, the average individual in the United Kingdom spends almost £4,500 on enhancing their looks each year. For many people, it s very easy to feel the pressure to look better with tons of makeup. In the age of social media that we live in, we’re constantly bombarded with images of perfectly retouched models, or actors.
However, one makeup artist has made an effort to prove that people don’t need to spend a fortune to look great. In a segment on Tuesday’s episode of the Today Show, a makeup artist told the bare truth – that expensive luxury makeup does not make you look better than wearing a drugstore brands. Investigative reporter Jeff Rossen instructed the artist to give the same look to identical twins Melten and Sinem. One of them had $250 worth of branded cosmetics, while the other had $60 worth of drugstore makeup Covergirl.
After that, they took the girls out in Manhattan, New York, to see whether people could tell the difference. Wait until you see the results. Watch the video below.
While some New Yorkers couldn’t tell the difference, others went for the drugstore makeup. In fact, 78 per cent of passer-bys thought that the $60 Covergirl makeup looked better than the more expensive look.
What ‘s even more, even the reporters at the Today Show studio got it wrong. Reporters Matt and Savannah opted for Sinem, but they were, of course, wrong as Sinem was only wearing $60 worth of makeup.
Well, that’s great news to hear! Run to the drugstore, ladies!
