By now you’ve probably heard about the latest makeup trends, including the proliferation of high-tech eyeliner, lipsticks and lip tints that include nano-particles.
But the beauty industry also has its own beauty history, which you may not have heard of.
In 2017, The Associated Press ranked makeup as the second-most-expensive industry in the U.S. behind the car industry.
According to the AP, the average cost of a cosmetic sold in the United States was $5,879, and the average price of a lip balm was $2,500.
According to Forbes, the United Kingdom’s beauty industry accounted for $3.9 trillion in sales in 2017, with a total of nearly $9 trillion.
According, The Huffington Post reports that the makeup industry makes up about a third of the world’s beauty retail business.
What makes it more interesting is that cosmetics are becoming a bigger part of the overall consumer’s life.
According the Huffington Post, “In a new survey, cosmetics and beauty products accounted for 18.5 percent of the total consumer spending.”
That’s up from 14.2 percent in 2016.
The beauty industry is also growing in size and popularity.
According The Associated News, “The industry now employs about 100 million people worldwide, a quarter of them women.”
