Women in the UK spend a year and three months of their lifetime putting on cosmetics, a survey has revealed.

The survey, which was commissioned by Harley Street beauty clinic Specialist Make-up Services, also showed that they spend three hours and 19 minutes every week applying make-up, the Daily Mail reported.

On average, the women in the survey said that they took 14.5 minutes on their weekday make-up routine, 24 minutes on a Saturday or Sunday, and just over once a week spent 76 minutes getting ready for a big night out.

Women also confessed that most time consuming part of their make-up was the eye area as applying mascara, eyeliner, eye shadow and grooming the eyebrows took 17 minutes alone when preparing for a night out, nearly 25 per cent of the total time spent. (ANI)
