Just to be clear, Martha Stewart spends more money on her daily beauty regimen than you do on your rent/mortgage.
The 72-year-old lifestyle guru spilled to the New York Times exactly what skin, makeup and hair products she uses on a daily basis and the results are kinda mind-blowing.
Here's a detailed excerpt of what it's like becoming "Martha" for a day:
"I slather myself with serums. First, it’s a toning lotion. Right now it’s either the Yon-Ka Lotion or a more specific spray, like the rose spray from Mario Badescu. I spray my whole face and body and then its Susan Ciminelli Marine Lotion from head to toe. I use the same products on my body as I use on my face. I don’t think there’s really any difference between the two, so the more moisturizers and serums you use, the better off you are. Then I might use a vitamin B or SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum. I’ll also put on Clé de Peau or SkinCeuticals moisturizer. With all of these serums, I find I don’t have to put on an eye cream, although my facialist insists I put one on. Sometimes, I will and the Clé de Peau is good or Caudalie has one — it’s the fancy one from their high-end line — and it’s very good, too. At the end, before any makeup, I use SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense."
Mind blown right? And this is before she even applies makeup, hair product and three spritzes of Fracas fragrance a day!
So how much does all this beauty stuff cost? More than you and I can afford.
The folks at Jezebel did the number crunching and figured out that Martha spends between $1982.99 - $2091.99, if she uses all of the products she mentioned.
We have to admit, the former model looks pretty amazing, so if it takes thousands of dollars a month to keep it up, then why not?
