Which do you find most difficult when applying make-up? graph of japanese statisticsThe cosmetics seller and make-up training school, naturaglacè, catchphrase “Dolce make-up by nature’s way”, recently conducted its own survey into one’s own make-up.

Demographics

Between the 26th of February and the 4th of March 2013 1,505 women completed a web-based questionnaire. Details on how the sample was gathered, or more detailed demographics was not presented.

Not being in the habit of wearing make-up, I cannot really comment too much on this poll, although I will note that from the women in Q5A, Haruka Ayase, Koyuki and Kaori Momoi have appeared together in an advert for SK-II skin care cosmetics.

    I wonder if guys over there prefer little to no make up like western guys or they prefer their girls to wear make up? I know guys in my country prefer the natural look cause there’s nothing being hidden so you don’t have to worry about your girlfriend scaring you if there’s something she didn’t tell you about that she was hiding.
