A year without makeup

Ladies, would you go a year without wearing makeup?

That's what one woman did and wrote a book about her experience.

She found that the average American woman spends $12,000 to $15,000 on beauty and salon treatments per year. So this author tried to see just how much her life would change if she went with the natural look.

Experts say society may be less open to the idea.

"We do tend to see attractive people, conventionally attractive people, we see them as happier, we see them as warmer, in fact, a few studies have shown that they even get lower prison sentences or don't get convicted at all," said Professor Caroline Heldman, Occidental College.
