You ladies make about 80 cents on the dollar compared to dude in the workforce. If they want to look pretty doing it they have to spend a whole lot more!

Researchers recently talked to more than 3,000 women in the U.S., and found the average woman spends $8 a day just on her face. $5 worth of skincare products, and $3 worth of make-up.  Girls, if you do your face up seven days a week, that's just over $2,900 a year.

Women in New York, Connecticut, and West Virginia spend the most, at $11 a day.  Women in Montana spend the least at $3.50.  Then it's Utah at $4.50, and Colorado, New Mexico, and Maine at $5 a day.  (See the top ten and bottom ten here.)

They also found women spend 10 minutes on their face each morning, and use 16 different products.  1/3 said they wouldn't leave the house if they couldn't wear foundation.

Women in California do their face the fastest, at 3 minutes.  Women in New York are the slowest, at 21 minutes.  Then it takes an average of 7 minutes to wash it all off and moisturize at night. Women in Delaware spend the most on lipstick at $30 a year.  Women in South Carolina spend the most on foundation with $45 a year.  And women in Alaska spend the most on moisturizer. $47 a year.
