Dolly Parton once said that “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.” But how much does it actually cost? Beauty, that is. How much does it cost for celebrities and rich people around to look the way they do?
That’s exactly the question an online voucher code and money saving site My Voucher Codes asked – “How much does it cost for celebrities to look as good as they do and how much time does it take them to get preened?”
Kim Kardashian, the American reality TV star says that it takes her at least two hours every day to do her make-up and according to her, she uses roughly £2,300 worth of different beauty products every day.
The 36-year-old reality superstar said that “My dad got me makeup classes for Christmas when I was like 14 at some Joe Blasco makeup school, and I’ve worn that foundation ever since.”
The easy bit of her regime though is that she only washes her hair once every five days.
For the other Kardashian, half-sister of Kim, the time it takes every day is the same, around 2 hours. But she uses around £2,800 worth of beauty and skin care products daily.
She has once said that “If I’m going to see people, I won’t wear heavy makeup. It’s not attractive on me. When you see those pictures on my Instagram, they are usually for when I’m doing a photo shoot or an interview.”
Then again, the meaning of heavy make-up, or how long the not heavy make-up takes, is a totally different question.
While the daily cost of beauty for Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner might sound high, you need to remember that they both own their own beauty companies.
But it’s not just the big reality show stars spending loads on beauty and promoting their looks, you can read an article about the true cost of beauty here and see the infographic below.
