A Years Worth of Make Up

I bookmarked this a while back for future blogging.  It’s a fascinating and slightly horrifying video of a woman getting an entire years worth of make up put on it one day.

Now, I don’t know too  many people who actually USE those spray thingers, but  I have seen them in action at Sephora (side note: are we REALLY air brushing ourselves now?  Really ladies??)  So despite the method, which I imagine was just a little easier and probably what the professionals are using these days, this poor woman gets a whole lot of make up glopped on her.

It makes you think, doesn’t it…  How much make up do we wear?  How much is seeping into our skin?  How much gets left behind when we wash our face?  Yuck!

If you’re trying to be more conscious about products, a great resource is EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.  It’s a online site where you can look up what’s in all those products on your shelf and find out what’s good and what’s not so good.  Each product gets a safety rating for easy decision making.

What do you wear for makeup?  Any?  A little? A lot? Are you trying to make any changes in your products? I’m still on the hunt for the perfect anti-perspirant/deodorant.
