New research by a hair and beauty retailer in the UK has revealed that the average British woman has a beauty collection worth £450; including makeup, cosmetics, creams and fragrances.

But the average woman only uses around a quarter of her collection (that's £110 worth.) polled 1,872 women from the UK, aged 18 and over, and asked them questions about the cosmetics they currently had in their possession. The study was part of ongoing research into the hair and beauty habits and preferences of British females.

Perfume was revealed to be the average lady's most expensive beauty item (followed by foundation, and then mascara.) While some  52% admitted that they have products in their beauty collection that were past their use-by dates.

Nicky Hambleton-Jones beauty advice

The weather may not be up to much, but don’t let it put you off embracing the hottest makeup trends this summer!

Colour Pop

This summer, makeup is all about embracing bright, bold hues in singular areas, whilst welcoming a palette of natural, neutral shades elsewhere. This look will really work with a fake tan as the brightest shades glow at their best on sun-kissed skin.

Effortlessly ensure your complexion is looking flawless by sweeping the lightweight, mineral infused lavera Natural Liquid Foundation, £11.90 over your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, using your fingertips to gently blend.
