Do you apply makeup behind the wheel? I think the majority of women have at some point. A recent survey suggests 43% of women admit to applying makeup on their daily journey and at traffic lights or traffic jam. The main makeup being applied is lip gloss, mascara and eyeliner and the average time applying makeup before leaving the house is 10 minutes! (survey commissioned by Debra Lawrence).
In fact, insurers estimate 450,000 accidents a year are caused by women applying their makeup! This is a phenomenal number but actually I’m not that surprised! Its no excuse and certainly not justifiable but women are under an enormous amount of pressure to look good, run the home, drop kids off and do a full days work and then return home to do more work. Sound familiar? Well it does to me.
With all these pressures more and more women are trying permanent makeup. It saves time, frustration and means that the makeup looks good 24/7! If more women have permanent makeup then ultimately those 450,000 accidents will cut considerably. Its food for thought and lets face it having permanent makeup could save you a huge increase in your insurance renewal!
There are so many benefits to permanent cosmetic makeup and this is certainly a new benefit that will be added to the list!
