英国女人脂粉钱能够买套房

All Made Up Over Make-Up

  英国最新的一份统计数据表明,女人一生花在化妆品等美容用品上的费用为18.2万英镑,这还不包括做整形手术或牙齿美容等较为大笔的开支。

  Women spend 182,000 on make-up and beauty products over their lifetime - more than some people spend on a house. The figure does not include plastic surgery or cosmetic dental work.

  据“天空新闻网”日前报道,18.2万英镑足够有些人买房了,而现代女性越来越爱注重自己的外貌会使实际的花费比统计出来的数据应该更高。

  But with more women in favour of nip and tuck, the true cost is certain to be higher.

  英国《新女性》杂志“2006美容调查”结果显示,女性用于化妆品的开销为每月77英镑。有80%以上的女性每天坚持化妆;超过50%的女性坦言,她们在出门前一定要先把自己的脸“收拾”漂亮。

  The average monthly spend on cosmetics is 77, according to the 2006 Beauty Survey, commissioned by New Woman magazine.  More than 80 per cent of women wear make-up every day and more than 50 per cent said they would not leave the house without their "face" on.

  《新女性》杂志编辑海伦·约翰逊表示:“我们喜欢为自己化妆。即使你头天喝得烂醉后一夜未睡,只要在出门前打开化妆包,你又会像明星一样容光焕发。”

  "We love our make-up," said editor Helen Johnson. "You wake up looking like the morning after the night before, but a quick rummage though a make-up bag and suddenly you're Kate Moss.

  海伦还说:“购买化妆品并把它们涂在脸上是件让女人感到开心的事情。化妆品和美容护理都是女人最好的朋友。我们从来没有像现在这样有这么多的化妆品可供选择,也没有像现在这样可以轻易改变你天生的容貌。无论是眼睛太小还是嘴唇太薄,只需用我们手中的化妆工具,一切皆可改变。”

  "Just buying make-up and putting it on makes women feel good. Beauty products and treatments are a girl's best friend. "We've never had so much choice and it has never been easier to enhance what Mother Nature gave us.

  "It doesn't matter if it's piggy eyes or thin lips it's easy to fix - and we can all achieve celebrity glamour with the sweep of a mascara brush."

  调查结果显示,几乎所有的女性都认为化过妆的她们看起来更漂亮,但也有1%的人说从未用过化妆品,只有6%的女性表示素面朝天时仍有自信,不过81%的女性说她们不在乎丈夫或者男友看见自己不化妆的样子。

  Almost all women said make-up makes them feel better looking - and just one per cent said they never wear it.

  Only six per cent said they feel confident if their face is bare -though 81 per cent said they did not mind if their boyfriend or husband saw them without full make-up.
