Everybody’s got their secrets to looking good and setting their own style. I polled our past FACES of Louisville and learned their style secrets, by asking them just four questions:
- What is something that you spend more money on than usual?
- What is something that you will not spend money on?
- What is part of your beauty routine that you cannot go without?
- What part of your beauty routine do you skip sometimes?
Their answers will enlighten you, make you laugh, surprise you and maybe sound familiar—from reading about the dermatologist who forgets to wash her face at night, or learning that women across the board will spend some serious money on shoes, all of these answers are great.
What is something that you spend more money on than usual?
Not surprisingly, this was a tie between handbags and shoes. Women love their purses and love their shoes. You know why? They always fit and accept you no matter how much you weigh.
Women love their shoes! These answers read like a love letter. And everyone is willing to pay more for shoes that fit and are comfortable, not to mention shoes that are beautiful.
You know it’s cold here when people have a coat wardrobe and spend some serious cash on them. Four of the ladies said coats were their number one extravagance.
Do pricier jeans make you look better? Three women thought so.
Two women spent their money on food. One owns a gelateria, which explains that.
Perhaps my favorite answer, because so many people buy cheap bras. But Janna (below) is right, and I’m a firm believer in a solid foundation, as well.
Skincare and Makeup
Lots of answers about skincare and makeup. And, these ladies are very particular about what brands they are spending their money on.
Nothing beats bling, and it does last forever.
What is something that you will not spend money on?
Some women said nothing. This is perhaps my favorite answer of the entire poll, simply because they were being so honest.
Socks and t-shirts came up time and time again in this answer. And everyone mentions Target. I mean everyone.
This was followed closely by accessories.
People go cheap on makeup and beauty products too.
Again, a great answer from Shane, below, because she’s right: It’s hard to spend $500 on a hat when you can find one much cheaper.
What is part of your beauty routine that you cannot go without?
Washing Your Face
Women were as vehement about washing their face as they were about praising their shoes.
Facials are considered a necessary luxury by many women. For those of us who get them, we know why.
Skin and Beauty Products
Sunscreen and moisturizer were a recurring daily theme here.
What part of your beauty routine do you skip sometimes?
Washing: Body, Hair and Face
Washing goes by the wayside … a lot.
Makeup was the most skipped part of the routine.
Well lovely ladies, your secrets are all out. Now we can all see that you are just like the rest of us. Unshowered with no make up on, but wearing our expensive shoes.
Thanks for participating in this fun straw poll!
