Women use three times more make-up during festive season

Women make up

Women wear around three times as much make-up during the Christmas season, according to a poll, applying 12 products on to their faces before going on a night out.

In contrast, they use just four cosmetic items on a normal day and a mere eight on an evening out at any other time of year, the Daily Mail reported.

The time they spend in front of the mirror increases too, with an hour needed to create the perfect look for a Christmas party or meal with friends.

That's up from 20 minutes of preening on a typical day and 40 minutes of preparation for a non-festive evening out.
