Men were the ones with the money, and women “had to start appealing to men to get men to pick them” for dates so women started wearing makeup. The Renfrew Center Foundation determined young girls wear makeup earlier than ever before and 58%, or about 3 in 5 of surveyed young girls (aged 8-18) wear makeup, 28% started wearing makeup after their 16th birthday, and 27% of young women never leave the house without wearing makeup.
