"Siren Magazine called "Why Vanity Keeps Us Poor." In it, the writer talks about how the cosmetic and toiletries industry is, worldwide, a $45 to $66 billion dollar business and that American women spend an average of $12,000 annually on beauty products and grooming"
This is crazy to me but i see it day in and out. I will even admit especially now working in an industry where beauty regiments are readily available i take advantage of the them, but one disadvantage is the cost. I definitely think that tv and media outlets are in part to blame for putting the motto out there that beauty is everything and can get you anywhere. We watch people on tv day in and out and begin to think that is the norm. But when you walk down the street does everyone have flawless skin, or perfectly colored hair the answer is NO NO NO!
My Favorite Artices:
1)Listicks, eye shadow, mascara... Worthy stuff! -----> Like i said previously this is a subject that really interests me, but i like how this person showed a picture of a so called person of beauty and what they really look like with out expensive make up.
2)Why So Similar?------> This article caught my eye because i fist learned about this subject was in an 11th grade sociology class and when my teacher told us to look around and someday these people are the most likely candidates for a significant other because of proximity. I think that is so interesting because i look around and am like how i have known these people for ever thats weird but i really think that is true now.
3)Does your significant other look like he/she could be your sibling? ----> I really liked this one because with finding people similar to you a person is looking for that on the inside and out. I just thought this was funny because my sister and her boyfriend look a lot a like and people always ask them if he is our brother.
