Why do British girls wear sooooo much makeup?
I just came back from England. I was there for a while and I've noticed that the girls there really pound on the makeup. Why is this?
Please if you're gonna go all PC on me, don't answer. Thanks :)

I actually thought it was an international thing but now you mention it, you are right.

That's their culture or they got sucked in by the adverts

To compensate for the lack of paint on brick houses
It really depends on what part of the country you're in.
I know some girls do but most wear it it moderation...
Because they are all news anchors, seriously why does every news station save Fox seem to have female British news anchors.
probably make up is a basic necessity there
Like so much else in the UK it depends on your social class. The lower their class the more makeup they wear. As you say, the average is higher than in the US but it's working class Brits where it's most noticeable.

I thought only London girls pound on the makeup? Or at least that's what the media told me lol or was it Liverpool?
I have no idea. But when I visited Japan the girls there were the same way. Probably just a popular culture thing.
Maybe because they like it?
Im pretty sure its not a "british thing" When i lived in the UK i saw some girls who wore loads of makeup and others who didn't wear any at all
